Hello;

Just wanna ask this because it seems the same...

Is Webrep like WOT...? How do they differ...? I have WOT (Chrome/FF)...is it redundant to have Webrep on?

Just asking..
Avast IS 19.8  /  Malwarebytes Premium / Windows 10 x64 Build 1903 / AMD A10 Processor desktop with R9 Graphics 32GB Ram.

WebRep will combine user community reputation for a given domain (already in place) with Avast's viruslab information (to be implemented)

Webrep does not block bad sites like WOT does with Red Ratings by default.  Webrep is a statistical profile of data from Avast users and the virus labs as to how much the Avast community likes a site.  Web-Rep is an optional install, and is easily removed from Avast if you don't want it under Web Rep settings.

I am sure the Avast development team will continue to study and enhance WebRep as future updates are released.  Avast users choose whether or not they want the plug in.

I think the way it works is if you are upgrading from Avast version 5, you are asked if you want Web Rep to be installed or not.  If you uninstall Version 5, and are getting a fresh download or install, I believe you get Web Rep by default, where you can deactivate it under Web Rep settings if you don't want it, OR do a custom install and uncheck Web Rep, if you don't want it.

Because Flock 2.6 is based on Firefox 3.0,
https://extensions.flock.com/extensions
Then it will be.

By the way, IE9 is much better than Firefox.

is webrep working now?
this morning, I'm sure I saw a yellow rating.
but at this moment, ratings on all sites (including avast itself) are grey --- saying the site has no ratings.

Any idea when the viruslab info will be in place?

Says who?
Thats more a question of personal preference, isn't it? I like FF 4 much more than IE 9.
