WOT: Web of Trust Browser Extension - Final Thoughts
(Page 4 of 4 )
Moving on, hopefully we have raised your interest in WOT. Should you want to see how the Web of Trust add-on performs in action, please check out the demo session video from the official site. If you are convinced, just grab yourself a copy of WOT, register as a user, and contribute by rating sites if you want to take an active part in the community; otherwise, just benefit and surf the Web safely.
You can download WOT right from this page. Keep in mind, each browser needs a different kind of WOT add-on. The Firefox one installs automatically as an extension. The Internet Explorer one can be downloaded from that page, as can the Safari and Opera bookmarklets. For more information about the bookmarklet, check out this blog entry. And yes, they all work!
After you have downloaded and installed the add-on, you can register and join the community. Visit the sign-up page to get started. If the registration process fails, check whether or not your web browser allows cookies. Cookies are required. If the problem persists, follow the instructions from that page.
All in all, we consider Web of Trust, WOT, to be one of the most remarkable initiatives to make the Web a safer place, protect your family, and ultimately, yes, save your wallet from scams, frauds, and phishing. You will know which services are to be trusted way before taking out your bank cards. With WOT, you will experience piece of mind and relaxed surfing on the Web. Check it out; you’re going to be glad you did.
Therefore, we recommend using Web of Trust and actively participating in the WOT community, because every one of us can make a difference. The more ratings are centralized, the more accurate the statistics will become. And best of all, the add-on will neither slow down your browsing experience, nor prevent you from visiting not-so-safe websites (unless you've specifically set it up that way due to the need for family safety, for example).
