Does this add-on slow down the page loading? It looks to me that way. Or the speed sacrifice is worth it?

I use WOT and it really does not slow down anything any more than a very small add on a page might.It is handy for checking out possibly dangerous web sites. It certainly is smaller and less intrusive that the similar items foisted on us by antivirus programs.

I use it on IE9 and don't notice any slow down.

Thank you peeps.
