    Probably old news but I found this extension for Chrome, Edge & Firefox which I though to share (I don't see it on Wilders which doesn't mean it can't be found if you dig) since I love Emsisoft
    I don't know much about it, only that it has fewer options compared to say malwarebytes extension,
    it has "block dangerous website" feature and a whitelisting/blacklisting method for webstites
    didn't spot any problem with the extension, exept I didn't warn me yet on anything suspicious

    as per author description:

    "Blocks dangerous websites that distribute malware and prevents phishing attacks.
    Emsisoft Browser Security protects you from bad websites and prevents phishing attacks without tracking your activity.

    This privacy-conscious browser extension is lightweight and lightning-fast. It blocks access to websites that distribute malware and prevents phishing attacks that try to steal your passwords, while still giving you the flexibility to visit the sites you trust.

    Emsisoft Browser Security uses privacy-conscious security technology, so it does not collect your browsing activity data. Your browsing history is your business. Keeping you safe online is ours.

    No browsing activity tracking. Just security.

    This is how it works:

    Every time you visit a new website, it sends a calculated hash value of the domain name to our servers once, and then receives a list of matching patterns that are applied locally on your computer. Those patterns are then kept for successive visits of pages on the same host/domain, which not only significantly speeds up the matching, but also ensures that Emsisoft and its employees will never know what you’re doing on a particular website.
    "

    it has 5/5 on chrome web store, but it is not popular yet

    best regards
