Wondering if anyone uses the getcocoon.com plug-in for Firefox or IE and what they think? I believe the one for IE is a beta but from all I can find they do scan with anti-virus and that is what I'm most concerned about. I'd like to think if I try this that they're using top notch anti-V. All other features sound good. Appreciate any feedback.
I use both and also beta tested them
Yes IE is in beta but not the A/V aspect of it - just the toolbar and the way it handles some functions and particularly cookie management (login issues occur with some websites.)
The anti-virus is an enterprise grade open source A/V
product used by major corporations. The virus definitions are updated many times a day.
The Cocoon plug-ins protect you from being infected by online
viruses & malware. It does not scan your existing system or prevent viruses from being added to your machine from external sources like USB drives. One of the lead developers for Cocoon (also co-founder of Cocoon) is Brian Fox
