There are dangers other than phishing and this is a browser plug-in, just the same as plug-ins for Firefox or Chrome. SiteAdvisor appears to be exactly that, it will provide you with information and advice about a website.

Although I wouldn't feel the need to use this myself, it would be ideal for someone like my mum - ever heard of the sayings 'horses for courses' and 'one mans meat is another mans poison'?

By all means vote it Cold, but don't cite Chrome as being the holy grail please.
