    Default WOT (Web of Trust) Review

    I have abandonded SiteAdvisor for WOT - Web of Trust.

    The last SA update was horrible and upon testing WOT I found it to be a much better system. If the site is on the hpHosts bad web site list it's also added to WOT.

    Here is a good example and I can show many more that are the same. Look at the SA rating for the well known malware xpantispyware-2009.com. It's green for goodness sake.

    WOT has it correct. xpantispyware-2009.com | WOT Security Scorecard | WOT Web of Trust

    ADDED WOT

    I find that absolutely incredible! Shocking even. Yet another nail in MaAfee's coffin.

    Gonna check out WoT now.

    For Opera and Safari users, you need this page, which offers a different version. If dragging the link to Bookmarks doesn't work, just right click it and select Save as Bookmark.

    Yes it's unbelievable.

    Note: I accidentally made this a new thread, I meant to post this in the Help2Go Recommended Software thread

    No you didn't .. I made it into a Review thread and linked it to the Software Picks since I added the program there.

    Thanks for this thread.

    I also abandoned McAfee Site Advisor when I read Evilfantasy's post.

    WOT is very good, thank you for the link.
