Many times this is a fact that you will try to find new information and new websites using a search engine, but whenever you search, you may get so many results that may not even be right for you, now imagine some of them having viruses, trojans, spyware or adwares associated with them, firgthening isin't it.
Now Scandoo is there to your rescue, the good thing about scandoo is that it will flag out sites that are dangerous to you.
Scandoo is not a search engine but just a site scanner that will show you a green light / signal when the site returned from the search result is ok to visit an orange signal when the site is dicey and unknown yet ok to visit, and a red signal when a site is known to have issues and will affect your computer in one way or the other.
Scandoo currently will scan your results from search engines like Yahoo, Google, MSN and ASK.
Scandoo is based on ScanSafe's web security technology which scans billions of web requests from corporate employess around the world, so those results are currently being used to segregate the results out for the user's who use search engines today.
This would mean that instead of search engines putting restrictions on search results, you can do them yourself.
How does it work?
Scandoo's scanning technology is installed on high speed server infrastructure around the world. We scan each and every one of your search results to see if there is anything malicious behind the links and then feed the security results back into your search page. Unfortunately, using a database lookup alone can't protect you with better or safer searches, and because database technology relies on updates you can't rely on its accuracy. That’s why Scandoo is designed to give you advanced warning – before you click – by scanning content in real-time. In addition we continually update our ratings based on your feedback and rely on our community of users to help protect each other.
Quote from the site
"Search engines are most people’s entry point to new web sites. At Scandoo we automatically scan all search results to protect you from visiting web sites that spread malicious viruses or spyware, and protect you from viewing offensive content.
Surfing the Internet has become a potentially dangerous activity. Some sites you visit could lead to your computer getting infected with spyware or a virus. Our scanners inspect and classify all search results in real time before you click on the links so you can make informed decisions about the websites you visit and secure yourself against infection."
