Outfoxed in a nutshell
My Mom is searching for a flight, so she types "Airline Flights" into a search engine.
She gets back a lot of results, but how can she know which company is good?
With Outfoxed, she can say that she trusts my opinions. I've used STA before and had good experiences, so I've given them a good report. Outfoxed shows my report next to STA in her search results, and moves them to the top of the list.
My Mom is surfing the web and encounters a page which wants to install eWallet from GAIN software. She has never heard of it before, but it sounds pretty cool.
...But I trust Ben, who has done extensive research into spyware and has documented the behavior of this software. His bad report is shown to my Mom, along with the information that Ben is trusted by me.
Hopefully, my Mom will follow his advice and spare me the pain of trying to uninstall spyware on my next visit home. :)
