I don't. I don't trust Google not to make use of the data, though
that's not such a great concern since I am doing a lot of Google
searching - they are already databasing me, to a large degree.
More importantly, I don't trust some website to tell me that a site is
safe, when it might not be. Nor would I rely on it warning me about
some site that mightn't be safe.
And I could do without any delays being added by waiting for a check.
I don't like the way Firefox ends up on some other OSs. With two or
three taskbars crowding out the window, and bogging the program down
with further processing. Firefox's none-to-nippy, anymore, without
making it do even more work.
I've seen some anti-virus software, for instance, hook into the browser,
and give you warnings about listings you see from Google. Google could
do that themselves, when they generate results for your searches.
