I use a firefox plugin called WOT, which Web of Trust. It interfaces 
with Yahoo as well as Google. From their website: It will keep you 
safe from online scams, identity theft, spyware, spam, viruses and 
unreliable shopping sites.
Something like 24,000,000 websites rated.

I've also received warnings directly via some other facility within 
Firefox that brings up an intermediate page of major warning is a 
sight is sus for some reason. Doesn't happen often and is a bit of a 
shock when it does.
