Anti Phishing tool bar
This looks like it could be a good tool.
Get it here:
The Toolbar community is effectively a giant neighbourhood watch scheme, empowering the most alert and most expert members to defend everyone within the community against phishing frauds. Once the first recipients of a phishing mail have reported the target URL, it is blocked for community members as they subsequently access the URL. Widely disseminated attacks (people constructing phishing attacks send literally millions of electronic mails in the expectation that some will reach customers of the bank) simply mean that the phishing attack will be reported and blocked sooner.
What happens if a big asteroid hits the Earth? Judging from realistic simulations involving a sledge hammer and a common laboratory frog, we can assume it will be pretty bad. - Dave Barry

Yeah, I just installed this recently. It looks to be interesting, potentially promising.

Thanks for that - looks promising and cool to boot.
However, in their instructions they state:
For the some-what paranoid - shouldn't we save it, virus-scan it and then install? I saved, scanned, then installed and it still worked fine. Don't mean to be a tool, so if I am... then I guess I am.
2. When you see a prompt asking if you want to open the file or save it to your computer, press the "Open" button.
Thanks again for the tool.
