No they are not . Concerning IE-Spyad : UNLESS you have a "special" circumstance,
you should be using "IE-Spyad for ZonedOut" available from www.funkytoad.com/zonedout.htm
as recommended by IE-Spyad author Eric Howes .

IE-SPYAD - adds a long list of sites and domains associated with known advertisers, marketers, and crapware pushers to the Restricted sites zone of Internet Explorer.

SiteAdvisor - ranks websites, based on analysis of a system of automated testers which continually patrol the Web to browse sites, download files, and enter information on sign-up forms. We document all these results and supplement them with feedback from our users, comments from Web site owners, and analysis from our own employees.

Note: IE-SPYAD works only for Internet Explorer

Site Advisor has a Firefox extension as well as an IE extension.

THANK YOU EVERYBODY FOR EXPLAINING AND CLARIFYING APPLICATION OF THIS TWO UTILITIES. At this note, would it be best to use both on your system? I, primarily use OPERA browser, is there a comparable software I can use with OPERA browser and derive the same added benefit that siteadvisor/Iespyad gives?? :thumbsup: Thank you very much. YOYO.
