A Chrome extension that will warn you if you are being lured into a fake Steemit website.
This extension will validate Steemit related websites by changing its icon color: - red is for blacklisted sites - green is for recognised friendly sites - grey is for unrecognised sites On Steemit.com, the system already marks external links with a grey icon on the right of each links. Steemed Phish will make that icon more obvious by coloring it in purple. On top of that, it will make a bubble appear next to the mouse cursor with a text explaining the fact that clicking on the link with leads you away so don't use your password.
