v2.0.3 – Just WOT you need!

March 27th, 2009 · 2 Comments

Compatibility with Web of Trust (WOT), an extremely popular, free Internet security add-on for your browser, has been in demand for some time. It is thus with pleasure that we can announce that v2.0.3 (currently available on Mozilla) is fully compatible with the WOT security icons in Firefox.

WOT ratings come from their community of users and are designed to keep you safe from online scams, identity theft, spyware, spam, viruses and unreliable shopping sites by warning you before you interact with a risky website. With the latest version of Surf Canyon, along with the WOT add-on for Firefox, security icons will appear next to all of the search results, including search recommendations and subsequent pages of results.

We’d like to offer a special thanks to the team at WOT for helping us with this solution.

Additionally, the Internet Explorer version of Surf Canyon is now compatible with IE8.

Update (4/6/2009) – WOT has also announced the collaboration on its blog.

    Great idea!

    As a WOT user, I can say that I rely upon WOT’s rating of any site that I find via a search or through my Gmail.

    In honesty, I reviewed the scorecard for SurfCanyon before I came here and downloaded the addon – FF (current).

    I notice that WOT works with Google, Yahoo, and Live Search; though they did anyway. It’s nice to see that WOT also works with the target links SurfCanyon provides to enhance the search results.

    I have one small question, will WOT work with search.surfcanyon.com?

    Thanks for the addon!

    [Editor’s Reply: We’re looking into adding WOT icons to search.surfcanyon.com right now. Please stay tuned and thank you for your support!]
