SafeBrowser (also known as DigitalPlanet SafeBrower service) beta is a free Firefox Add-on that allows you to view suspicious sites safely that can contain malware or viruses in form of ads, images, pop up messages, and more. The unique feature about SafeBrowser is that unlike other add-ons that directly block suspicious sites like parental control add-ons, SafeBrowser lets you view those sites securely. SafeBrowser is also useful as it not only blocks adverts, infact it can block JavaScript, java applets, gif images, flash contents, basic html etc., of a webpage.

Moreover, you can directly open a webpage link to SafeBrowser using right-click context menu option. You also have the facility to view only simple text of a webpage or only text & images. Thus in simple means, it provides multiple page load options which you can select according to your own requirement. And if you find a webpage secure for you, then you can view that page outside of SafeBrowser as well.

Below you can see screenshot about how a webpage will look on DigitalPlanet SafeBrowser online service. You won’t find any adverts or images in a particular webpage while using this add-on.
