Please add Windows 64 bit support Rated 5 out of 5 stars

With Waterfox there is now a well working 64 bit release of FireFox for windows and everything works very well, except this one extension. I like the extension and would be happy to be able to use it again.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.9.5.1.1-signed). 

NoScript Security Suite

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Best Plugin ever. A Browser without such a great Plugin is useless.

The only problem are sites which are made by incompetent web developers, so that their sites dont work without JavaScript. Such sites are still pretty suspicious, because the possibility that the developer had bad intends or the developer doesnt know what he is doing and makes a site that can be hacked easily, is great.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.2.3.1-signed). 

Web of Trust - WOT

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

MyWOT is useless because it is easy to manipulate (just look in google how often this happens...). For example by anger ratings or because of people that even havent enough knowledge to rate it (for example security).

MyWOT gets dangerous too, because there are some people that trust to much in this user ratings. If for example somebody does an anger rate or a competitor rates down other sites, some people start to fear this sites without any real reason.

Then there are many ratings that were made out of sympathy and not because of real facts. For example it is widely proven that Facebook has one of the worst privacy of all sites out there, but here it still has good ratings?

All in all myWOT is just useless.

If you really want to improve your security, then use NoScript: https://addons.mozilla.org/de/firefox/addon/noscript/?src=search (the best which can be done for security).
WOT ist just a placebo.



Reply to first comment of the developer:
So I have to manipulate ratings I dislike, because I can do it? Is this really your advice, that everything that can be done is good? Is this how you act? A Browser plugin can do very much, I really dont want to know what you have done in this browser plugin only because you can do it...

Yes, most people trust or like facebook, but most people dont even care about privacy, too! This shows pretty good why myWOT is useless, it is just a like or dislike platform and not anything that gives you usefull informations about privacy, security and such things...

And of course is the rating system resistant because a computer software is intelligent enough to find out manipulations, like a virus killer is always able to find out viruses and a firewall blocks all evil. Good joke...
