Does Webroot fully support the Opera and Chrome browsers? I have noticed that search results, say from google, do not contain the check or X marks that show up in IE.
 
I have noticed in Chrome, results are encrypted with a https: connections, but Opera is http:. No security icons appear on either browser, though.

Here is a handy screenshot from the system requirements section of the user guide:


 
The extent of support for Chrome and Opera is that the Identity Shield works with them.  Search annotations are a Web Threat Shield function however, so there is no guarantee that the annotations will appear in those browsers.

Yes your right the search annotations does not show up in Opera and Chrome it did show in Firefox but Firefox now uses Google HTTPS search which does not show them but if you do come across a bad website it will still be blocked with the Web Threat Shield also Yahoo & Bing search in Firefox works fine and IE9 still works fine and shows search annotations!
 
HTH,

I think search annotations should be rid of to avoid confusion such as this. Also, because they're more of a placebo than anything else.
