Netcraft Toolbar for Firefox Available

Parent is not just funny, it is insightful. There should be a +2 mod for that.

When the unicode mapping exploit became known to me, I played around with the SpoofStick extension to Firefox, which mapped the unicode into punycode to make the phishing attempt more apparent. It worked as advertised, but aside from being unbelievably ugly, SpoofStick required creation of yet another toolbar. I use a laptop, so vertical screen space is at a premium. No more toolbars!!

Fortunately, updated Firefox config options allow user to do the punycode mapping in the URL, my personal preference. Problem solved.

But every time a new problem comes along, must we really use another toolbar?

I never thought this would happen to me. But then...oh wait, that's a different forum.

Seriously, this is just a test.
