Malware has become ubiquitous, scam sites proliferate, and there are constant privacy dangers on the Web

An excellent, free tool. There's really no reason not to try WOT (Web of Trust).
WOT (Web of Trust) rates every site for trustworthiness, vendor reliability, privacy, and child safety, and shows you the results using simple-to-scan coloured icons. (Red for bad, green for good.) When you do a search in Google or another website, you'll see the icons and know what you're in for if you visit.
You can also visit the WOT (Web of Trust) rating for each site to see why it was given its rating, and read reviews by people who have visited the site.
WOT (Web of Trust) offers other protections as well. When you visit a site with a red rating, you first get a big warning on your screen. That way, you can either navigate away or click through at your own peril.
And when you're on any website, click the WOT (Web of Trust) button in Firefox and you'll be shown details about the site's rating as well. You can view information and ratings about Trustworthiness, Vendor Reliability, Privacy, and Child Safety.
The newest version of WOT (Web of Trust) has four levels of safety from which you can choose, including Lite, which shows ratings icons only for dangerous sites, all the way up to Parental Control, which in addition to blocking dangerous sites, also blocks sites not suitable for children. In addition, WOT is now available for Internet Explorer 8.0 (although not earlier versions of Internet Explorer), as well as for Mozilla Firefox as an add-in.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.
This smart laptop was enjoyable to use and great to work on – creating content was super simple.
It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.
As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.
The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.
This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
