    WOT Users Beware

    I just saw that WOT....(Web Of Trust) is has been removed from FireFox addons, as well as from the google extensions because the company has been caught seeing user IP's and browsing information. Needless to say I removed it from both FireFox and Google....

    Doubt if I'd have noticed that the icon had dissapeared from my bar unless you mentioned it joe. Thanks for the info.


    P.S.... Firefox does have an alternative called (Bitdefender) TrafficLight. It's in their Add-ons. Don't know why they didn't mention it after removing WOT.
    It is, in my humble opinion better than WOT. After installation it adds an unobtrusive icon to your search bar just like WOT used to do. If you click on the icon you can change the settings to your preference.
    I'm sure there are other such peices of similar software available so if anyone knows of any post a note here.
