FWIW, an interesting comparison between three web reputation and site rating services:http://www.techairlines.com/2010/09/24/wot-vs-siteadvisor-vs-safeweb/

I am not a Microsoft or a Dell employee. I am a volunteer.
Perhaps this is why I am having trouble accessing that site:
I tried the link posted by way299 at work and got this from our content filter:
Access to this web page is restricted.
This site is filtered in the "Proxy Avoidance;Information Technology" category.

while CheckWebsiteSafe has the advantage of offering multiple analysis (AVG, WOT, McAfee, Google, Norton) of websites, the "problem" is that the user has to actively go to that site, and type-in (or copy/paste) EACH URL that (s)he is interested in. This really isn't practical... I don't know of anyone who will actually test every URL before they "visit" there.
In contrast, the various site-advisors listed above are add-ons (plug-ins) that automatically [and very efficiently] work inside the user's browser(s). WOT, in particular, can be set to either WARN or actually BLOCK any "objectionable" sites [per its database], offering the user continuous protection at all times.
[As noted in my signature, WOT is just one of several layers of protection that I rely upon.]
Windows 7 Pro SP1 (64-bit), avast! v2014 Free, MBAM Pro, Windows Firewall, OpenDNS Family Shield, SpywareBlaster, MVPS HOSTS file, EMET+MBAE, MCShield, WinPatrol PLUS, SAS (on-demand scanner), Zemana AntiLogger Free, IE11 & Firefox (both using WOT [IE set to WARN, FF set to BLOCK]), CryptoPrevent, Secunia PSI.
[I believe computer-users who sandbox (Sandboxie) are acting prudently.]
