    You guys might want to make SafeOnline not protect addresses like file:///C:/etc/etc... ;)

    Not informative? I gave all the info.

    SafeOnline will automatically protect a local address file://C:/Users/<username>/Desktop/etc/etc

    Just an example, of course.

    Test it yourself: Shift+Right-click some file and choose Copy as path. Then paste it into the browser address bar. You may press enter if you wish; I don't recall if I did. SafeOnline will protect that address. No use. ;)

    SafeOnline will provide some protection over local pages but there is probably some value in this anyway (especially for web developers who host a local copy of the website for testing :))

    Anyway, still interesting :) I hadn't personally tried this!
