Mcafee Site Advisor Bookmarklet For Google Chrome

by Chrome Blog on April 13, 2009

I got a few emails from some avid firefox and internet explorer users who wanted to have the Mcafee Siteadvisor Plugin integrated into Google Chrome. If you dont know yet, the siteadvisor plugin from Mcafee works with only Internet Explorer And with Firefox and rates about 90% of the Web based on security issues. The plugin basically looks for all kinds of safety and security threats associated with a particular page you are browsing and alerts the users for it.

As you guys know, Google Chrome does not have an extensions/plugins gateway as such and does not quite support third party extensions till now Mcafee has not developed its Chrome version for that plugin.

However, we have got a javascript bookmarklet for Siteadvisor which would make viewing of the site’s security status a bit more easier using mcafee’s technology and database, thus giving users for Google Chrome a feeling that they are using the Mcafee Site Advisor Plugin, though this is a “cheap” work around for the actual plugin.

To use this bookmarlet just drag and drop the following link to your Google Chrome’s Bookmarks Bar.

Mcafee SiteAdvisor

When you are surfing on a site and want to know what Mcafee Siteadvisor has to say about the site you are surfing, just click on that bookmarklet once, and a new tab will open which will give you all the details and ratings of that site.

Note: This is not the official plugin/extension from mcafee, this is just a user generated javascript bookmarlet. It does not has all features as in the original plugin but just a preview of it. Though this is 100% reliable.

Possibly the reason that McAfee don’t support Site advisor for Google is that their company policy is not to support Beta software, so if Chrome ends up like the other 45% of Google products that are still in some form of Beta it will never be supported !!!

Out of curiosity I installed the bookmarklet and gave it a try ..

Have to say its pretty good …

I used to use IE7 before moving over to Chrome and had SiteAdvisor installed and found it to be very effective.

The only drawback to its use in Chrome is that your already on the site before you can check it out …
Having said that once you click on the bookmarklet the response is reasonably instantaneous so you can get off the site PDQ if its flagged up as being suspicious.

The big plus is you don’t need to download and install any software.

I agree with you. You have to be in the site. Instead of bookmarklets, why not Userscripts? Userscripts are supported by google chrome and is more powerful.

Doesn’t work anymore :S :S :S

Steve and Silent if you go to this link you can check out a web site without actually having to go to a particular website,saves time and possibly going to a bad website.

Plimer agreed to it with full knowledge of what the terms were. ,

Chrome latest builds now contain plugin support (seems extremely similar to Greasemonkey scripting). Any possibility of getting a “real” plugin out now? 🙂
