Dangerous Sites
Can Orca 1.1 build 2 block phishing sites or block bad sites known for providing malwares ( viruses, spywares etc. )? If not, will a blocking feature be added to the next Orca version?
Regards,

Protection is provided by the Gecko engine used by Orca.

Try these links: phishing test site and malware test site

You can also try Peer Guardian 2 and SpywareBlaster, among many other popular software...
