WOT for IE and CHROME were just updated... and SAFARI a few weeks ago.
I don't seem to be able to check on what version i have on WOT. I know I have it on Firefox and IE. How do i check on version and update WOT. I can right click on the Icon and update shows up in the menu, but nothing seem to happen. Thanks

In FF: click on TOOLS , then ADD-ONS, then EXTENSIONS. WOT should be included there. Current Version is 20120515 ; i.e., 2012-05-15
In IE: click on TOOLS, then MANAGE ADD-ONS, then TOOLBARS & EXTENSIONS. Scroll down the list to locate, and click-on (highlight) WOT. You should see the version # both on that highlighted line, as well as in the middle of the screen. The current version is listed as 126.96.36.199
EDIT: If you LEFT-click on the WOT icon, and look toward the bottom, it will [sometimes] let you know when a newer version is available. If it finds one, you can click on that to update.
Evermore, To update WOT left click on the WOT icon. At the bottom in fine print is a place to click to update.
