What is "Country Flags & IP Whois" extension and how does it work?
This extension adds a toolbar button to Chrome browser. In Firefox a new icon is added to the address-bar. In both cases, the icon will display flag of the web-server based on its current location. This tool can be used to identify where the actual server is located. This can help identifying malicious websites. Also more information based on the IP address of the server is provided on click of the toolbar.
Why there is no flag icon in the toolbar after installation?
You will need to refresh tabs for the extension to fetch IP address of the server and converts that to proper flags.
Does this extension use an external service to get the IP information?
No, feting IP information from external service is slow. The extension has a lightweight database to convert an arbitrary IP address to ISO country code. For the extension to be lightweight as possible, the database is highly optimized and compressed. So there is no external resource involve during IP resolution. If additional information is required, click on the toolbar to direct you to the detail page.
Can I change the position of the toolbar / addressbar icon?
In Chrome the icon is added as a toolbar button. Holding the button and moving mouse cursor changes the position of the toolbar button. In Firefox though the icon is placed inside the addressbar and position is determined by Firefox and is not changeable.
