I am now using Opera and SiteAdvisor is not compatible with it. Is there an alternative to SiteAdvisor?

Exploit prevention labs has a free product
http://www.explabs.com/products/
Not as quick to populate google search results with green/red marks but is a very fine product.
One advantage: since McAfee bought SiteAdvisor, you now have to go through their splash screen before you can examine full page of results - I find that an annoyance galore. So XML is an alternative.

LinkScaner Light is not yet compatible with Opera. Sorry I haven't read your message carefully.

Maybe try the online version:

Linkscanner Online

This is still in beta. It can be used using Opera but you have to manually type in your search. No plug-in available though & it does not seem to have as much info as site advisor. Info available when you hover your mouse over the colored marking on the left.

I have the site advisor page on my "personal bar". When I need to know, I cut and paste the url onto that page in the lower right hand corner. Yeah it's not as quick, but at least it's at your finger tips, and just a couple mouse clicks.
