Today SiteAdvisor officially launched a Trial Version of their software .
SiteAdvisor is a browser addon for Firefox or Internet Explorer that tries to interpret the relative safety of clicking on Web search results. With SiteAdvisor installed, each listing is accompanied by a small color coded icon that indicates whether the software developers have received any reports of scammy, spammy or outright malicious activity emanating from the site.
They’ve come a long way since SiteAdvisor was established nearly one year ago. Their bots have analyzed Web sites representing 95% of Web traffic, downloaded and tested more than 475,000 pieces of software, and provided unique e-mail addresses on more than 1,300,000 registration forms. SiteAdvisor Web site, which also launched today, adds a new look and many new features, including a robust user review system and a new support section.
The crucial work carried out by our dedicated 7,000 Preview Version testers over the last 3 months was instrumental in helping us improve our software and our Web site. Their feedback, suggestions, and constant input helped us tweak features, clarify messages, and put a lot of new ideas in the development pipeline. Thanks to the enthusiasm of our early users, SiteAdvisor’s software was downloaded more than 150,000 times while in its preview phase.
