FaktNews

For Aston University's 2017 Hackathon we submitted a browser extension called FaktNews. FaktNews grades the trustworthiness of the website you're currently viewing. For each website you visit, we average Majestic's trustworthiness and citation values, our own measure, and a community's vote to give you an overall grade.

This repository is a refinement of our work: it's ~325% faster, the GUI has been revamped, and has a website version so can run queries outside the extension.

Support

We currently support any browser that uses the WebExtensions API. This includes Chrome, Firefox, and Edge among others. Internet Explorer does not have support, and we do not plan to add it. Ensure your browser is up-to-date, as there are many known issues with older builds.

Chrome

To install on Chrome do the following:

  1. Go to chrome://extensions
  2. Enable Developer mode
  3. Click Load unpacked extension...
  4. Navigate to the Extension folder, and click Open on the folder

Firefox

To install on FireFox do the following:

  1. Go to about:debugging
  2. Tick Enable add-on debugging
  3. Click Load Temporary Add-on
  4. Navigate to the Extension folder, and click Open on any item inside the folder

Opera

To install on Opera do the following:

  1. Press Ctrl-Shift-E or navigate to: Menu > Extensions > Extensions
  2. Click Developer Mode
  3. Click Load unpacked extension...
  4. Navigate to the Extension folder, and click OK on the folder

Edge

While the extension is compatible with Edge, it is not going to be implemented as Edge Extensions must be published on the Windows Store.

NB: SVG CSS rotation is not working (as of end 2017) in Edge. This means that the Pie Chart sections will overlap, and the Circlular progression bars will start on the horizontal axis. View this webpage to check support.
