AVG 8 Link Scanner vs McAfee SiteAdvisor ???

Now that AVG 8 has the Link Scanner is McAfee SiteAdvisor still viable or even needed. I am seeing both of these rating sites/links when doing a Google search.

Looking for comments or thoughts from anyone experiencing this.

AVG Linkscanner will work with SA, I think it's good to keep them both. If one failed to 'rate' properly while the other rates a link as bad... that will help a user to decide (not to click).

1. I enable site checkers by IE, Opera and FF (antiphishing is what they call it)
2. Firetrust Sitehound is enabled in FF
3. WOT is also enabled in FF

Whoever catch or rate first is good Grin
