I got two extensions for you guys today and they both serve the same purpose. Which is, to show you where the website your on is from. And here they are:
1.) Chrome Flags
This is the one I’m more familiar with and the one I recommend. It’s Windows only, so if you’re running Linux or Mac skip down to the next one. In your URL bar, to the left of the go/stop button it displays a little flag. The flag symbolizes the location of the website’s server. Clicking on the flag brings open a pop-up which shows the server’s IP address, links to website information, link to the McAfee Site Adviser and WOT information.
2.) Ultimate Chrome Flag
I haven’t used this one much but I got to say it does do the job well. Oddly it asks for your browsing history when installing which kind of bugs me but other than that I haven’t had anything else. Unlike the other extension this one has options. The options are what to display in the pop-up and what appears over the flag. You get a choice of three things for that: just display the flag, display WOT rating over flag or display Google page rank over flag. When you click the flag a pop-up appears which has several bits of information on it that you can edit in the options. First one being the country and IP address. Second one is the geo location of the server. Then Google page rank followed by the Alexa traffic rank. And then WOT ratings. And of course you can disable any of those in the options if you want.
