It's saved my bacon Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I love this add-on, it's saved me from some nasty stuff over the last few years I've had it installed. It's hardly noticeable until a bad site pops up.

I haven't noticed much in the way of abuse mentioned by others (such as giving a site a bad rating because you don't like it). Besides, you can always carry on and view a site that's got a poor rating, and you can also see why people are giving it the rating that they do from the comments.

I'd like to see more sites reviewed, but that'll come I guess.

The idea is definitely good. Unfortunately, many users abuse this tool:(.....

For example: A particular person may hate a site. He/She gives a negative rating and tells their friends also to do so!

Did love this tool initially, but now it seems to have deteriorated a lot...

WOT=essential tool Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I have been using WOT for over a year and a half. I would not consider 'browsing the web' without it. I have been virus/worm/trojan free since adding WOT to my arsenal. Avoiding the dangerous sites is three quarters of your malware protection, and WOT will advise you if you are venturing into dangerous territory. I am a risk taker (and a 'grey hat'), and do venture beyond safe grounds, but WOT warns me whenever I do...if you look at my ratings, they are mostly 'reds'. WOT is an essential tool in anybody's defense system!

Great add-on!!
This is best one kind of this.

And, better than some other ones because these averages are decided mostly by human.

Thanks for WOT Services!!!

すばらしいアドオンです!!
この種のものでは一番だと思います。

これらの評価は、基本的に人間が判断するので他のものより良いです。(そのため一部の悪質なサイトを見逃しません)

WOT の開発者の方へ、本当にありがとうございます。

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

This is a horrible add-on. Ratings are inconsistent and not representative at all of the malware and maliciousness of the web sites.
And today I saw that a single rating on a major corporation got it a "poor" reputation.
This add-on does not work, because people use it maliciously.
I just uninstalled it and hope you do the same.

Re: Horrible

Ratings are private, you can't see them. You probably saw a comment on the scorecard. Comments don't affect the reputation and leaving them is optional. Still, we would be curious to hear which major corporation has a poor reputation. Please send us a note or post to our forum:

Reputations aren't only about malware. They tell you how much other people trust a website, which many people find helpful when exploring websites they don't know.

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I was so excited to find this add-on, but surprised to find many of the websites I visit all the time for my work (like daily.sightline.org, a web based northwest environmental news service) to be listed as having a poor reputation. That's a piece of cuss. Looks like people have been flagging websites they don't agree with politically. It also slowed down websites loading noticeably. I just uninstalled WOT and wish the developers to find a way around this.

Re:

It looks like the site's reputation had suffered due to spam, not politics. If you have concerns about a site's reputation, rate the site yourself and bring it up on our forum. This isn't a support forum and your comment may go unnoticed.

The add-on shouldn't slow down page loading unless you have blocking enabled. You can turn it off from the settings along with any other features you may find annoying:

I'm there with the others Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I loved this tool when it first came out and the potential it had to save us all from going to those virus/malware sites was a great idea. But recently most of the websites that I've checked out with WOT bad ratings are due to ppl's political views and whether they are boycotting the company or some other ridiculous excuse.

The tool had great potential but now it's turning into a book burning opinion rating tool instead of what it was created for.

Re: I'm there with the others

If you have concerns about a specific website's reputation, bring it up on our forum. If most of the websites you've checked have a poor rating, we would be very interested in hearing where you find these sites.

Not very useful Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Based on user opinions, this addon is not useful for blocking malware. People rate sites poorly for various reasons, often having nothing to do with malware. I find this addon to be invasive on it's own, not to mention bloating. There are better alternatives.

Re: Not very useful

The add-on isn't only about malware, it tells you how much people trust websites. If you find it invasive, you may want to try the "Light" option on the welcome page instead:

Great plugin to improve security and protect from frauds. If you are paranoid then you might install other similar addons in addition. And it has a very nice parential-control feature!

The first and most important add-on I install on a new installation of Firefox. My entire family relies heavily and exclusively on WOT rating for websites. I wouldn't be as comfortable surfing the Web without WOT installed.

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

I've been using WOT for several years now and I'm fairly pleased. However, WOT recently introduced a new "feature" that is irritating me.

When I search using Google, WOT insists on inserting a line called "WOT safe search." It doesn't appear until a few moments AFTER the search page begins to render. During this time, I have already concluded that I want to click on the first search result and WOT suddenly inserts it links RIGHT AS I'M CLICKING which results in taking me to a new, worthless search results.

I click the little "[x]" to make it go away, but eventually this STUPID, WORTHLESS feature returns irritating me again.

I'm assuming some self-assessed brilliant Web developer came up with the idea to store this setting in a cookie. Thanks idiot!

Obviously WOT doesn't understand how to do usability testing and doesn't have the first idea of how to design software.

The fix for this problem is simple. Since this is an add-on, give me local settings to disable the stupidity of ignorant developers.

Re: Local settings

This isn't the support forum. While we appreciate your lack of confidence in our coding abilities, your assumption about storing settings in cookies is wrong. The add-on has always had local settings and if they keep changing back, there's probably an issue with your Firefox profile. Try creating a clean profile to see if that solves the problem. Next time, you can send us support requests here:

This is about the best WARNING add-on available. Most of the negative reviews focus on the fact that it's not perfect, but I think it should be judged by how
well it does what it claims to do.

Also, WOT uses more than user ratings; see Malware Domains (also available with Adblock Plus if your computor can handle the load) for example. The way they group users to weight opinions also reduces the risk of co-ordinated attacks.

Finally, if the comments are obviously biased in the your view then go ahead and visit the site - perhaps blocking Javascript first!
