Web of Trust (WOT)
Web of Trust warns you about risky Web sites that try to scam visitors, deliver malware or send spam. The WOT community has scanned millions of Web sites. Web site ratings are continuously updated by millions of members of the WOT community and from many trusted sources, such as phishing site listings. The nice thing about WOT is it doesn't block the site to the user, like other reputation-based wares, but gives users a traffic light graphic to let them know when they are venturing into dangerous realms. An interesting note is that WOT names among its investors MySQL founder Michael Widenius's VC firm.
