    Tried to test it with FF, but even though i allowed Scripts, it said they were disabled ? :p It "might" work for you though :)

    Works fine with Opera.
    This has a good selection of engines,plus a 40mb file size limit as opposed to VT with 20mb.
    Good heads up.:thumb:

    Hopefully they will implement an URL checker, for those times when VT is busy (to check file results).

    Or, is anyone aware of such service by them?

    Something similar to URLvoid's implementation would be great yes.

    I had more in mind some like what VT provides. Once the URL scanning finishes, we have the option to lookup the file result. This way would be an alternative to VT, because sometimes VT is busy. :(

    I mean, I wouldn't mind a URL checked like URLVoid and then scan the file, though. :thumb:

    Anything along those lines would be useful.I think I'll suggest that to them,they might take it on board.

    Originally Filterbit, now it scans up to 40 MB, more than any other. Bookmarking it, thanks for the great news.
