As well as this function, Flagfox also provides users with bunches of other interesting features, including Alexa lookups, WOT score and translation help. All are neatly contained in the menu that pops up when you right-click on the flag you'll see in the address bar.
Flagfox's configuration options are also located in this menu - you'll be able to choose where the flag appears (address or status bar), decide where the information you search for will appear (by default it's a new tab in the foreground), as well as customizing the actions that appear in the list - you'll even be able to create your own.
These actions are varied; some are related to security while others are more general - for example, you can look up a website in GeoTool, It Down or Just Me?, W3C Validator, or simply copy the information for use elsewhere. Admittedly, not everybody wants so much information on their browsing, but if you do, Flagfox is a nicely designed tool to do the job well.
Flagfox is a cute location add-on that hides a lot of extra functionality.
