Lightbulb SiteAdvisor for browser


Hi Folks, does anyone knows an open source site-advisor for Chrome or Firefox?

Like McAfee site advisor.

Thank you.

Firefox Privacy and Security settings include:
Quote:
Security
Deceptive Content and Dangerous Software Protection
x Block dangerous and deceptive content
x Block dangerous downloads
x Warn you about unwanted and uncommon software
Ver. 68.0 - and it seems to work, 'tho it may not be as aggressive as McAfee.

Don't know about Chrome.

Thanks, Scasey. Yes agree free and paid version has a lot of difference.

Not sure if this is equivalent to site advisor: DuckDuckGo Privacy Essentials tells you about trackers on the site you are visiting, and shady privacy practices in the site's terms and conditions. Browser plugins for Chrome, Firefox, Android browsers and IOS browsers exist.

Linuxquestions gets a B+ (see attached screenshot).

I do use DDG. For site advisor it will give a warning before loading the site so bypass drive malware download can be avoided. I think too much searching is a good business for others. LOL.
