Netcraft Anti-Phishing Toolbar

The Netcraft Toolbar uses Netcraft's enormous databases of web site information to show you all the attributes of each site you visit on the Web, including the sites' hosting location, country, longevity and popularity. This is good for the exact reason the site mentions, clear display of sites' hosting location at all times helps you validate fraudulent urls (e.g. the main online banking site of a large US bank is unlikely to be hosted in the former Soviet Union). Also, the Netcraft Anti-Phishing Toolbar happily coexists with Google and other Toolbars.

Firefox users: Development of a Firefox version of the toolbar is underway, and started just before Christmas. It will available as soon as possible.
