Web of Trust (WOT) has been a trusted browser privacy and security add-on for Firefox, Chrome, and Internet Explorer for quite a while.The plug-in has now extended its support to the Opera 11+ web browser.
WOT 0.9 works in the same way as it does on other supported browsers -- namely IE, Chrome, Safari and Firefox -- to provide a traffic-light icon in the browser toolbar and next to search engine results to provide at-a-glance safety and privacy ratings for the websites in question. If a site is rated red, Web of Trust throws up a warning message making it clear it doesn't recommend the user visit the site -- this can be overruled by the user, but isn't recommended.
WOT ratings are determined by millions of WOT users worldwide. This community approach to security and privacy has received some criticisms for over-zealous and inaccurate ratings, but it does provide a welcome extra layer of security protecting people from visiting less desirable areas of the web.
Just install Opera 11+, head over to Opera Extensions gallery and install Web of Trust.
