    If Opera warns other browsers likely do too considering that Opera has the worst reputation for notifying of malicious pages.

    Actually, Opera (as shown) gives warnings provided AVG. I believe these warnings come from avgthreatlabs.com, which on its turn gets results from AVG LinkScanner. I'd have more confidence in LinkScanner, considering data from AVG Threat Labs isn't provided in real-time.

    LinkScanner isn't strong against known malicious domains. It's strong against domains hosting exploits. Which is why I'd rather put my bets on LinkScanner rather than Opera's built-in warnings (even if provided by AVG).

    Take it with some grains of salt, though. But, I do believe the ratings come from avgthreatlabs.com.

    I suppose that's better than the built-in check.

    It's probably just an ad for AVG. :D

    "There is a 30% discount for all Opera users."

    Call now, operators are standing by. :D
