Looks like Finjan?
A review here. http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2381621,00.asp
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?
Apparently, it now supports Google Chrome. At least, that's what it's mentioned at the website.
I'll see how it fairs against BitDefender TrafficLight and AVG LinkScanner.

It's the slowest plug-in I've ever seen ...
Still very slow on showing ratings...
yep very slow man
And does it block pages or just shows ratings?
From the PCMag review...
