    Installed it today, but found it's not very good @ recognising even some popular www's, such as https://www.google.co.uk & https://www.startpage.com ? I would have expected @ least Google to be known etc !

    On here

    I suppose that "might" be expected as it doesn't get as much traffic as G.

    So what use is it, if it can't recognise even G ?

    I stopped using this add-on when I had a Java security warning on them. See for details: https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showpost.php?p=1996898&postcount=20

    They appear to have had funding problems, but I do not know how things are going for them now. I did try them again on FF about 6 months later as I use a wifi hotspot every now and again, but when I noticed that Perspectives could not determine if the Google webpage was legit or not I got rid of them. I have not used Java for over a year now so I am not sure if they still are having problems with their certificates.

    @ emmjay

    Thanks for the info :thumb:

    I don't have Java on here ;)

    I 'm going to uninstall Perspectives, which is a shame as it has potential !
