And kinda pointless imo. i mean, if you use firefox you are probably an above average internet user. if you install extensions you are probably an above above average internet user. so I dont think it will be very useful. The only big purpose i can see it serving is a nice counter to anyone who defends IE7 by saying it has antiphishing technology. And i wonder if google incorperates this antiphising with the one in gmail? i would assume so.
