Risk Rating is no more visible
=> Netcraft Toolbar WAS my absolute favorite.
Since Firefox 57 / Quantum, the User is obliged to click the Icon.
It is still reliable and has all-in-one critical features: trust-ranking, anti-phishing ... BUT NOT VISIBLE
This how poor UX kills the best security add ever!
Though I'd much rather see an icon variant for Firefox like the Google Chrome Extension.
I'd give it 5 stars then.
всё работает на 100% только хотелось бы НА РУССКОМ!!!!
Good: The tool bar is big for the screen at the beginning. Now get use of its. I like the Risk Rating having with green and red color. It is easy to describe and teach my 9 years old kid on which site is good and bad for daily surf the web, safely.
Bardzo wartościowy dodatek. Bardzo dużo stron http próbuje przechwycić nasze dane. Pomagajmy ich przeciwnikom i korzystajmy z efektów ich pracy
Shows sites ranks and age correct but useless against fishing due to today’s CDN- cloud hosting. For example Facebook show different country depending where you are. Netcraft support is unresponsive. Used be ok years ago. May slow down browsing as it sends url of every site you visit to netcraft.
What the add-on brings is excellent, the way it brings it is bothering : toolbar could be replaced with a click-button as it is in Chrome, feasible, I don't understand why Netcraft doesn't change this. Nevertheless ...
There is -- this is what I do -- a workaround : using another add-on, Buttonizer, tell Buttonizer to take care of 'Netcraft Toolbar' (as it may handle whatever toolbar). This enables one button (that of Buttonizer) to display a floating 'Netcraft Toolbar'. Works fine. Buttonizer is available here and is compatible with at least Firefox 24 (I'm with Firefox 24 ESR, that is Pale Moon 24.6.2).
The toolbar provdes useful information, but it behaves like a monolith. The code should be updated to match the configurability of the standard FF toolbars; Ideally up to the ability to simply embed individual components into another bar and do a way with the separate bar altogether.
A useful feature might also be to make the Risk Rating have a popup of *why* the rating was assinged, instead of just referring to the overly-generic FAQ.
The usefullness of this toolbar is hindered by the amount of browser space it takes up and the amount of space it wastes. IT IS JUST TOO BIG! There is no reason to take three lines to give
one line of information-what's the point? They should allow the user to scale it vertically and horizontally or make it more space efficient themselves. Until they do, a lot of people won't bother using it.
While tehre is no solution to keeping all phishing sites in check this addon helps keep users out of phishing sites.
It dosn't seam to work with IPv6.
I like this tool bar, I have found it reliable & easy to use. It is a little bulky so I only use when I need it, the rest of the time I remove it from my desktop using view toolbars.
Super toolbar polecam wszystkim chroni przed pishingiem a przedewszystkim nas ostrzega
I like this addon very much! Helps finding out about Phishing Sites
The toolbar is FAR TOO LARGE for its use to be useful on a netbook (tiny screen). I am searching for something better. I used to love this tool about 5 years ago.
Toolbar is large and wastes space.
Caveat Emptor. Reported a suspected "pfishing" attack from a suspected PayPal simulation. Netcraft responded that "pfishing" was unlikely from such a large respected site.
Reported the attack to email@example.com and got notice they were investigating.
I have serious doubts about the amount of "pfishing" protection netcraft will actually provide.
This toolbar works great, provides rankings and conforms ideally to any theme. I like being able to report phishing sites, too.
Thank-you to all of the Reviewers, and a Big Thumbs Down, Netcraft, for not provif=ding Images of the Large Toolbar that these people speak of.
I would never install such 1980's to early 1990's technology such a (the) Real-Estate hogging Toolbars API's~!
Great add-on. In my point of view a lot better then WOT. I enjoy using netcraft because its small, and simply, it gives me a lot of information on the website I'm visiting. The "page rank" is simple. And you can also report sites. I always felt WOT was to clumsy.
But like someone has mentioned, netcraft dose take website names. But I don't believe they take in anything other then that. And the most information netcraft gets from you is what you give them. Thats assuming you report any sites.
it came recommended by somebody who knows a lot more about computers and the web and so i've got. for all i know it is doing a great job as it doesn't have a great deal of visibility.
a minor point would be that the netcraft toolbar takes up a lot of screen space.
excellent add-on - for those that complain about wasted space while surfing hit F11 key and you get more real estate - when you want to return it to regular use hit F11 again - voila no more problems.
Good tool. But not good enough for user with privacy. See comment from Netcraft:
"We do, however, collect the names of the web sites visited by our users in order to provide popularity ranking information and contextual reports for the site bring browsed."
It seems to catch more sites than the other anti-phishing options on this site... BUT its lack of customization and the inability to turn the bars visibility off and have it still work are deal breakers for me. The bar is intrusive and you cant even put anything next to it. Basically its a block of your toolbars thats are wasted on usless info. I want to be able to hide the bar and have it still work, like all the other antiphishing bars out there. I love its accuracy, I hate its static waste of space.
It is for this reason, I wont use the bar untill they make it more customizable.
This newest version, Version 184.108.40.206, appears to have corrected all the conflicts I was experiencing with Mr Tech Local Install and the IP Viewers.
Thanks and make it a great day!
Good for what it does but mouse gestures wont work when enabled. You may want to disable except when needed.
I found a conflict between Mr. Tech Local Install and the Netcraft Toolbar Version. When both are enabled, Netcraft removes the Mr. Tech icon, the "Theme Switcher" and the "Extension Options" sub-menus from the Firefox "Tools" menu and removes the "Install Extension" and "Install Theme" sub-menu options from the "File" menu. It may remove all of Mr. Tech's Local Install changes to the menus, but I don't know what they are beyond those.
Mr. Tech's Local Install 220.127.116.11
Netcraft Toolbar 18.104.22.168
