A fine tool that I find I rely on more and more. I like the added bonus of being able to contribute.

Crazy not to give it 5 stars, this product replaces any type of site protectors, parental control and anti-phishing products you have on Firefox. Now only if we can replace Internet Explorer... Forever.

A la sombra de McAfee Site Advisor Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Me parece muy pobre, la calificación es dada subjetivamente por la comunidad sin seguir estándares o metodología, no se analizan descargas ni amenazas de forma individual. Trata de imitar a McAfee Site Advisor con enfoque 2.0 pero se queda en el intento.

Re: Ratings

You might be overlooking the fact that our service measures reputation or how much users trust websites, instead of only security. Your antivirus software tells you if the site is safe to visit, but it doesn't tell you if it's safe to do business with the site or give out your personal information to them. Also, we started developing the service in 2005, so we're hardly imitating anyone.

Perfect ! Really original and clever to rate a site and have an idea on it (viruses , spam , spywares , ... or , great site , useful ... ) by the users' experience and even websites ! I love this idea !

Non-functional Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I have tried every setting in the "Settings" tab and changed every setting I can think of that might effect displays, but I can't get WOT to display any warnings or evaluations whatsoever despite running searches that include known "bad" web sites.

It does not want to play with v3.0.10. I have installed and uninstalled it 3 times to no avail.

Best Anti-Phishing Addon Rated 5 out of 5 stars

For the guy complaining about the green circle 1. its there so you know the safety level of the site your on. 2. You can shrink or remove it through the customization option by right click between the url and search bars.

As for the guy who is complaining about the EULA, the collecting info is for your benefit. It helps them know people's surfing habbits so they can help determine the safety of the site and possibly the cause of it. For instance if 10,000 members used one malware site before WOT determined the site "dangerous" they can estimate the level of danger the site is and estimate how many people got infected during a given time period.

TOS????? Rated 1 out of 5 stars

You want me to agree to some Term of Service agreement for your free add-on to my computer?
You are on my computer out of the kindness of my heart, You have no right to collect information on me, correct or incorrect. Take your TOS agreement and shove it.

Re: TOS

WTF Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Why isn't there an option to remove the big gnarly green circle in the address bar? Other than that, it's decent.. but such an eye sore.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (20090414). 

Re: Safe icon

It's possible to remove the WOT icon from the address bar, although not recommended. Since then you wouldn't see the site's rating when visiting it.

Here is how the icon can be removed:
* Go to add-on settings at http://www.mywot.com/settings/advanced . Uncheck "Re-create the toolbar button if it gets removed (recommended)" and remember to press apply settings.
* Then customize your toolbar by right clicking it and dragging WOT icon to the repository and that's it. More detailed instructions can be found at http://kb.mozillazine.org/Toolbar_customization_-_Firefox

Amazing add-on! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

One of my favorite add-ons. Because it's user rated, it'll be rated by people who've seen the website!
However, I really need some help! See, i've become dependent on this add-on, and i'll check out any new website, even when it's green.

I've been using it for a while now, and suddenly, it failed on me. It just kept displaying message, "failed to load ratings; retrying shortly". It hasn't worked for the past hour. Any help???
No updates to be found, and no new programs.

this is an AWESOME extension! i've started to prefer google chrome over firefox (faster, etc) but i keep needing to go back to firefox so i can check WOT ratings on sites... i can't fully switch to google chrome without the WOT! just goes to show how much i like it. WOT people, you gotta get this extension on google chrome now too! 5 star rating for it (would give it more if i could)

Excelente complemento, principalmente aliado ao Firefox.
A melhor forma de "moralizar" a internet "sem impor censura" é o próprio usuário fazer as classificações.
Assim os spamers e phishing vão perdendo espaço para conteúdos de relevância.

Crashes Firefox, intermittently.
Will file bug if I can figure out how to do so, but the crashes are frequent enough that I am not reinstalling it.

Re: Crashes

Our add-on shouldn't be able to crash Firefox. However, creating a clean profile should solve the problem:
