Google Safe Browsing Firefox Extension

Posted by geeknews at 10:01 AM on December 15, 2005

Firefox has released an extension that you should load. This extension will help you when you are are surfing the web and are directed to a website that may not be who or what it appears. Phishing has been going on for a while and people are usually sucked in when they get a e-mail that tells them to visit a site which turns out to be a front for a major identity theft ring. This is a good one and I actually tested it today and it works as advertised. [Google]

    Tried to download it and got this page – http://www.google.com/tools/firefox/safebrowsing/us_only.html saying:

    Sorry…
    Google Safe Browsing for Firefox is only available for download for users within the US.

    Dunno why.
