Free Bitdefender Traffic Light Extension
« on: July 26, 2011, 04:30:49 PM »
for chrome: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/cfnpidifppmenkapgihekkeednfoenal
for firefox:https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/trafficlight/
Runs well with AvastFree 6 and Agnitum Outpost Free Suite FW on Win 7 64bits. Doesn't slow down at all my bandwidth speed contrary to previous versions and setups (I was using Comodo suite then but turned back to Avast as Comodo made Windows Update constantly fail (!...)). Still in beta, but stable. Sorry to say, but seems much better than our Avast WebRep (as most sites are not yet flagged!). So I recommend it! ;)

A little Google add on I've used for quite a while and I also haven't noticed any adverse effect.

Yes, it works. But it consumes a lot of RAM and interferes with flash video and flash games. I uninstalled it.
May the FOSS be with you!

I just spent the last two hours testing this and all i can say is it's poor, porn sites are all flagged green for starters, a simple search of carsales will bring up different results each time on the same links, also tried some known malicious links and nothing  :o
Runs well, nice and lite but the results are rubbish  ::)

Porn sites aren't something I ever visit but, they don't necessarily have to be infected. Safe means not infected it's not meant to be a rating site.

There not something i visit either but there usefull for testing and they are known bad site's that i checked them with but that still doesn't explain why there are different ratings displayed on every check of the same links on numerus pages, try it yourself! google carsales and see the results then close the browser then google carsales again ? thats just one example as i tried it on several different suggestions and always different results.
I know safe means not infected but alot of the links i ran by it are infected.
I dont recommend this program at all, a big thumbs down imo.

Doing a search for "carsales" without the quotes, gives me a list of where I can buy cars within my area which currently is Ridgefield CT.
and I get the same answer as to the safety of the individual dealers websites each time.

Individual dealers websites will and should have different ratings unless they are all clean.
It isn't a rating for one website but separate individual sites.

I realise that, what im saying is that the ratings are changing for the same site everytime i go back to them, every 20 odd seconds.

Isn't that the same as saying that MBAM is over security ??? If the program helps to
protect you or aids in stopping a possible infection without adversely effecting
the OS then where do you draw the line on "over-security" ???
