Hi folks,

OK so I downloaded Firefox 5 without checking for compatibility issues, and as I'm sure you folks know, McAfee SiteAdvisor is not compatible with it, and I hear that Mozilla wants to keep it that way due to crashes in 7 (and maybe Vista?). Anyway, I have XP and have had no problems (that I know of).

The point is that now I need a good site advising program to take SiteAdvisor's place. Recommendations?

Thanks!
James

PS: By the way, it needs to be free. ;)

A word of warning that website checkers such as these should be used as a guide only. They are not absolute.

If you rather have a faster browser and just check the occasional URL try the online version of LinkScanner.

As mentioned, only use website checkers as a guide. They should never be used or trusted as absolute gospel. This is because the data used to set definitions is only as good as the source which can and is sometimes corrupted or inaccurate.
