Very useful. One thing to note is that some sites which attempt the drive-by d/l of the WMF exploit show up as green. I of course reported the page. Currently it has a few problems. And the servers did crash once after I got my extension, and that was when they got slashdotted. Very few servers can withstand a slashdotting with the exception being google.
