Netcraft Toolbar

by Ragnar Schierholz

The folks at Netcraft have released the Netcraft Toolbar, a plug-in/extension for both IE and Firefox which serves as a short cut to their services and helps to protect the user from phishing and other fraud.

The toolbar gives you an iconified risk rating of the site you are currently browsing, which is based on how long the domain has been registered, whether Netcraft has a records on it in their Webserver Survey and whether the provider hosting the site has a record of hosting fraudulent sites in the past.
