    M86 Security acquired Finjan, which is why it's the same thing.

    They'll have to re-work it, though. As it turns out, it scans all the URLs in the search engine. I wonder if it also scans all URLs within a same result; would it scan all URLs in a search result that links to -http://www.wilderssecurity.com ? (scanning all URLs within wilderssecurity from the search engine?)

    If that's how it works, and for what I read at PC Mag, it seems to be so, then they'll have to re-work on that, just as AVG was forced to do with LinkScanner, which now only scans the current URL and not all URLs within a domain.

    Unless M86 SecureBrowsing plug-in doesn't become a widespread tool. This way webmasters won't complain; at the image of what happened with LinkScanner, when it was still property of Exploit Prevention Labs.

    I also dislike the fact it won't block access to malicious domains. Imagine a user running their e-mail client/webmail and clicks on a link that a friend sends, and turns out the URL is hosting an exploit? It won't be of any good. This is where I prefer to install AVG LinkScanner to relatives who dislike other ways of securing their web sessions.

    Thanks for posting that review sg09. In it's present form this plug-in urgently
    needs a revamp imo, to make it much lighter, faster, more clear and detailed,
    and, of course, added support for FF4 and IE9. At the moment I feel it can't
    attract users, unfortunately. Hopefully a work in progress?
