    Maybe the below link tells us things to expect from Google & Firefox as a combination product.

    http://www.google.com/tools/firefox/safebrowsing/

    I've had a shot at one phishing website identifying itself as Ebay with the extension installed & it detected it as fake alright.

    Cool, on the lines of IE 7, good. MS has one less unique thing now and we have one more thing to rejoice.. so i guess double good things for us. :lol:

    google jus keeps coming up with products and even regular gmail and google.com users also dont know abt it.
    google jus brings out everything as BETA without good testing at their end and they wash their hands out of any harm done to the end users PC by using their products.
    google web accelerator was the biggest flop initially as ur mails wud get deleted from your web mail's server eventhough u did not delete it.
    there are many people who blindly believe google products and become the victim of some poor product testing.
