I find it irritating that McAfee Site Advisor always gives ProZ a dubious yellow rating.
I have found an alternative, a Firefox add-on, which claims to cover 21,000,000 sites. It is called WOT (Web of Trust), and uses a similar traffic-light rating system. It gives ProZ a green rating. I am now using it instead of McAfee Site Advisor, which I have uninstalled. Does anyone else feel like giving McAfee Site Advisor a vote of no confidence in the same way?

Don't know about McAfee... Jun 10, 2009

But WOT is a great extension. This is the link: http://spedr.com/12qxp

With a 10/10th smell of flowers or with a tin-fish?

PS: never heard of MASA, so... and WOT also works with IE (for those who like it slow, though).
