Does anyone know of a tool bar addition that tells you if you are on the website you have requested (not an impostor website)? I had it on my computer, but lost it. Thanks.

You can google tool bars and see what comes up. There are several and maybe you can pick out the name of what you had. If you can be more specific, that will help.
I use Mozilla Firefox for a web browser. It has that feature.
Sorry, I have found what I was looking for. It is called Spoofstick. Thanks anyway.
Yes, I have the perfect solution.... Go to http://www.spoofstick.com/
I wouldn't be without it!
Happy Safe Surfing!
The picture is a screen shot of Spoofstick at 'work'.
another GREAT tool is SiteAdvisor..a Firefox browser extension. wouldn't be without it!!!
It might be good, but it isn't worth anything if it doesn't work in or with the most up to date version of Firefox. It only works with Firefox versions 0.8 to 1.6a2. If your running a version that old, perhaps you should think about upgrading.
I have never heard of "imposter websites" -- so I wonder if it's the same as what I would called a "mirrored site" ? What's the difference?
I am interested if you could tell me more !
Hi, the one you want is called SPOOFSTICK www.spoofstick.com lets you know if you are on a real website. I think it is great, it doesn't let you get fooled into thinking you are on a true site, when you are not.
