This is a concept for a browser extension which will allow users to identify trusted websites by means of a coloured pop-up. The pop-ups are based on two lists which make up a database of trusted/not trusted sites. If the site does not fit into one of the two lists, the yellow pop-up takes the user through to a submission form where a request to verify the site is made. Based on the outcome of the verification process, the previously uncategorised site will now form part of the database as either trusted or not.
