You can use PhishingFree by SafeToOpen extension for Chrome/FF as a complement to Netcraft extension

Opera use blacklists from both Phishtank and Netcraft for phishing and fraud, and malware blacklists from AVG and Yandex. Sounds IMO a bit redundant also using Netcrafts extension as when both Netcrafts extension, and Opera itself warn/flag at the same time on tested urls/links, I uninstalled the extension.

perhaps off topic but this thread highly knowledgable.
Click&Clean -- worth installing in chrome?
I searched mwt and did not find it discussed, maybe I missed it. If there's a better place to post this, please advise or move.

I see that you use Privacy Eraser to clean Windows and browsers. So Click&Clean is not needed.
Each extension you add can be a security or privacy risk (not especially Click&Clean, don't know enough about this extension).
So the same applies for extensions as for stacking security software less is more ;)
Stick to basics a good ad blocker, a password manager and depending of your config a security extension for phishing and malware blocking.

Member @LDogg seems to use/d it. Probably can advice the best.

I do agree with @Gandalf_The_Grey that if you use Privacy Eraser ( PE from Cybertron ) for cleaning browsers it's not really needed but, that depends if PE been set to clean automatic when the browser is closed. Click & Clean also got that option.

Personal I would hesitate use PE, because I had to purchase the PRO version to be able erase files other then 1 pass ( zero fill ). Privazer is a much better option IMO.

Thanks, good input! I put Clean&Click on a chromebook just to test it.

thanks for the feedback. I used privazer early on at least a year ago, maybe 2+, but dropped it, something buggy on my end back then -- don't remember why or what. PE has worked aok for me. I think pro version using 1 pass. At the moment my primary computer has a hardware bug, ugh!, so my wife lets me use her pc when she's sleeping, ie, if I'm not using my chromebook.

It does act a bit odd on different browsers. :unsure:

Seems to be a Wordpress site. If very unlucky it's infected through one of many reported issues with plugins for WP. Personal I would not buy anything on that site, but try elsewhere if possible.

just did a new test to see how the extensions are developing, 20 links from urlhaus

chrome 16/20
Avira 10/20
emsisoft 9/20 but 1 downloaded
malwarebytes 13/20
norton 6/20
BD trafficlight (BDTL) 12/20
WDBP 16/20 but some downloaded

late test:
adguard chrome extension (malware protection: on, default settings): 1/20

Chrome+WDBP 18/20
chrome+WDBP+BDTL 20/20 => my recommended combo worked perfectly

I had been running emsisoft extension for several months and it hadn't blocked anything, not a single link
I just switched to BDTL for 2 weeks, it has been blocking a few links => goodbye emsisoft
WDBP has been working great

something can be good in theory but in reality and in some specific countries, others are better. BD has much larger user database than emsisoft in my country which can explain why it's better
