Reasonable Anti-phishing

Reasonable Anti-Phishing Toolbar installs as a toolbar in Internet Explorer. It works by checking the site you browse to and warning you if any are known phishing sites. Note that when you install the toolbar, it may not show up in Internet Explorer immediately. To make it appear in IE7, click the Alt key, select View, then Toolbars, and select Reasonable Anti-Phishing 2.0. When you use the toolbar, be careful not to confuse your normal IE Address Bar with what appears to be the toolbar's Address Bar. In fact, the toolbar's Address Bar is linked to a search engine, and you won't get to an address if you type it into the bar. Given that annoyance, and the fact that Internet Explorer 7 already includes a built-in anti-phishing tool, there doesn't seem to be much reason for using this toolbar.

Note: This program is donationware. It is free to try, but the author accepts and encourages donations towards further development.
