|You cannot install the WOT addon anymore in Firefox. This is due to WOT selling all your browsing data to firms - easily de-anonymizable (containing e-mail addresses, usernames or identifying parts of URLs in cleartext).
Reporters of German broadcast NDR found out about this by inspecting a test dataset they acquired disguised as a company asking around to buy personal data.|
