Security Question regarding netcraft extension

  • quote from Huib Kleinhout in 2008 (yep, a long time ago):

    "Since 2006, Opera has featured Fraud Protection, which protects you against phishing pages, and not too long ago we upgraded the backend part of it to provide even better protection using data from Netcraft, widely regarded as the best performing protector against phishing".

    so netcraft was a part of the older opera build. so the question is: is it still? i want to know because in opera 19 i installed the netcraft extension and was wondering if i was being redundant? do i need it? or are its `signitures' built into the new opera browsers like they used to be in the old opera browser?

  • I don't think Opera has built in netcraft anymore. I'm not even sure if it still works in Opera 12? I think they moved on. So, just use the app.
