Bottom Line

An excellent, free tool. There's really no reason not to try WOT (Web of Trust).

Would you buy this?

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.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

The Huddle Board’s built in program; Sharp Touch Viewing software allows us to easily manipulate and edit our documents (jpegs and PDFs) all at the same time on the dashboard.
