McAfee SiteAdvisor web browser module what is it for?

McAfee's antiviral labs propose a website health alert tool based on their analysis. This alert you to a potentially dangerous site before clicking on your link. Their dedicated test PCs have scanned a large number of websites and the SiteAdvisor extension shows us their results.

This tool comes in two forms: a free one (SiteAdvisor) and a paid one (SiteAdvisor Plus). For the difference between the two versions, see the chart on this page with the features and benefits of the software. Either way, keep in mind that the free version is very useful.
