I recently downloaded FireFox browser and Avast free anti-virus . Avast has a lot of neat little features without being glitzy or bloated.

I am using Firefox and avast interacts and puts up a "website rating". It's a little box to the right of the forward/back arrows and it looks like the signal bar on a cell phone. On sites that get responses, Avast will issue a rating. The more people who do this, the better the site rating.

Just one more way we can show people we're friendly and safe to come to. Takes a whoppin 10 seconds to click on it, select social + gaming icons and select the rating.

IDK if any other browsers are utilizing it yet, only seen it in FireFox tonight.

It's the only computer I have with both of those, just found it interesting and thought if anyone else had that combo, it would be worth it to participate.

I use Norton for all my anti-virus needs and it has a rating system all it's own. When you do a search in Google or Yahoo etc. there's a circle with either a green check mark or a red "do not enter" symbol that's displayed to the right of each listing. So far it works in Chrome, IE, and Firefox. That's a system even I can understand LOL!

I have firefox and avast on this computer and am not finding this, must be an option. I think it is just a firefox thing because I swear I have seen it on my other computers without avast. I am going to look into this...
