    Netcraft has no current plans to offer versions of the toolbar for other browsers

    What do you guys think about this toolbar? Is it worth it? Or is it a gimmick?

    I was just about to download it and read the EULA, before I did.

    I did not like this caveat,

    We use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server and to administer our Web site. Your IP address may also used to display regional advertising banners.

    A personal thing with me I admit, there is enought dross around, without adding any more :eek:

    i use firefox am i recommended to use this toolbar is it any goodo_O

    wat does this mean

    # Traps suspicious URLs containing characters which have no common purpose other than to deceive.
    # Enforces display of browser navigational controls (toolbar & address bar) in all windows, to defend against pop up windows which attempt to hide the navigational controls.
    # Clearly displays sites' hosting location, including country, helping you to evaluate fraudulent urls (e.g. the real citibank.com or barclays.co.uk sites are unlikely to be hosted in the former Soviet Union).

    * Protect your savings from Phishing attacks.
    * See the hosting location and Risk Rating of every site you visit.
    * Help defend the Internet community from fraudsters.
    o_O??

    Is "using your IP address a big issue?

    Other question: can this toolbar be deleted without mucking FF settings around or damaging the original FF install?

    Any help?

    Regards.

    Spoofstick might be a better option after looking over Netcraft's site. While all may be okay, it appears they are a revenue driven site.
    Spoofstick is not.
