    I suppose only time, use and lack of complaints will tell.

    Have just installed it now...but I was wondering if it was really working coz I couldn't see any signs on my firefox browser after its noticed to enable it. :rolleyes: :cautious:

    Actually, I have now 3 anti-phishing built into my firefox - spoofstick, Earthlink toolbar, and now google anti-phishing, and ohh...before I forget...:eek: I also have this siteadvisor found on my lower right side of my browser. :D

    Now w 4 anti-phishing installed on my firefox any phishers on the planet will be filtered and grinded like beans...:D

    Google has a link to test the plug-in and when it works it clearly in a large balloon that the site is unsafe. Unless it is activated by a bad site, it sits quietly in the background. I also use SiteAdvisor and the two apps have 2 different functions. Site Advisor is great to show potentially bad site links when you do a Google search which helps you to avoid going to those sites in the first place. Both apps compliment the Firefox browser very nicely.

    I have not trusted Google for reasons I am not sure of. I had the impression that it was full of spyware.
    Evidently I am incorrect in this.

    I have Spoofstick, and Siteadvisor,and would like the google plug in if it is safe.
