Are you always worried before opening any website on your browser and, for that matter the safety of your own website? Are online threats like viruses, phishing and spyware stopping you from enjoying the experience of browsing and surfing internet? Here is a service which will put an end to all your concerns. Norton Safe Web is a service which scrutinizes any website for you to ensure that no damage is done to your system by that website.

Norton Safeweb is a product of Symantec Corporation which helps the users to filter the safe websites from a huge pool of unsafe virus-infected websites which swindle you by stealing all your confidential details. The website is integrated with Norton Internet Security 2009 and Norton 360 version 3.0. It requires Internet Explorer 6 or Firefox 2.[1] browser.

The website analyzes any website based on the experiences shared by the Norton Community participants. These participants normally give ratings and review the website based on their personal experience. Any website is flagged and marked as malicious if some negative feedbacks are reported.
The process of checking the safety of any website is extremely simple. All you have to do is enter the name of the website and Safeweb will do the rest. The service generates a site report with a detailed summary on computer threats,identity threats and annoyance factors. There are community reviews available for the user to make an informed decision before opening the malicious website. The users can also write reviews on websites and warn others in case they encountered a suspicious website.

Some other useful features are:
1. Accuracy of top 30000 websites has been ensured by direct analysis by website team.
2. Contributions by users are ranked by reputation.
3. Website owners can request evaluation of their website.
4. Online glossary for understanding the technical terms used for threats.
5. Community Buzz for social networking.
Use this service and save yourself from asking that nagging question again: Is this website safe!!
