Malware has become ubiquitous, scam sites proliferate, and there are constant privacy dangers on the Web
- Won't work with earlier versions of Internet Explorer
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.

Microsoft Office continues to make a student’s life that little bit easier by offering reliable, easy to use, time-saving functionality, while continuing to develop new features that further enhance what is already a formidable collection of applications
I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)
It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!
The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.
I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.
