    Alternative to WOT

    Since I seem to be unable to operate WOT (Web Of Trust) on my FireFox browser (see link titled "Web of Trust on Firefox" posted earlier).

    Does anyone know of a similar website checking app or program that I could use in the place of WOT?

    I find it handy to have a "visual" indicator of the relative safety of a given website.

    Thanks,
    Richard Spring

    That's what the little circles are for (green in the example below)

    Both Avast and Avira AntiVirus programs have an add-on that is similar to WOT. These may or may not be a little more assertive than WOT, don't know, haven't used them - yet.
