    Do you use LinkExtend? What do you think of LinkExtend?

    http://www.linkextend.com/

    I see that LinkExtend uses many Services such as WOT, McAfee SiteAdvisor, etc.

    Thanks in Advance.

    Its highly configurable. You can choose what goes into a rating, what shows in search engines as far as ratings, site statistics, etc.

    Its been awhile since Ive used it, but it also gives sites security ratings (green, yellow, red).

    Here are some screenshots to give you some ideas on how configurable it is, what it can warn against, etc.

    The last time I tried it, I found it to be overkill for my own personal usage. I'd rather stick to just the original 1 or 2 individual service(s) depending on how I view the importance/reliability of it.

    Does this enable website blocking or just warnings?

    The LinkExtend website shows "Blocking dangerous sites" under "Future Development".

    Remember you can skip 999 features and only place that single Safety button on existing toolbar, like right next to address bar. Some might run away just reading the word TOOLBAR. This is an intelligent one, like Googles :)

    So disable everything except those one or two individual services.
    _
    My favourite part is that it can be set to work on-demand only.
