    I wasn't aware of the existence of this site reputation toolbar until it was mentioned in another thread on here a week or so ago (longer?) - I've been using it on 3 PC's for quite a few days (I have no concept of time) & most impressed with it. I like the way it disappears after a few seconds also. A great add on! :)

    I really liked it but the toolbar itself was so obtrusive and wasteful of browser real estate. It taking up a full line and not being able to move it or re-size it. Also being bright white and not blending into the theme of the browser itself was a turn-off. If it becomes less obtrusive and able to move its position and re-size, I would definitely use it. It just uses too much browser real estate and stands out way too much making it distracting.

    It's gone in 4 seconds here which is pretty much ideal to me & I can live with that - I also greatly dislike toolbars for the reason they use much needed room on a page & I've waited years for a huge screen & don't like anything taking that space up - Maybe an adjustable delay time might help others?

    Doesn't the URL blocking of brightcloud toolbar already exist in WSA URL blocking?

    My toolbar does not disappear, it stays on all the time.

    On Chrome it does fade after a few seconds, I haven't got around to trying it on Firefox yet though.

    I was under the impression (maybe wrongly) that the brightcloud was somewhat more aggressive for want of a better word that the WSA site blocker?
