SafeWeb Doubles Usage, Blocked By Saudis 

Jayson Matthews  

SafeWeb joined the ranks of some 20-odd secure surfing Web sites with 
its launch last October, but as the fist "surfing portal" to apply 
financial transaction-level encryption technology to the entire Web 
experience (and to do it for free), the company says it has garnered 
some sizeable growth in its first few weeks, doubling its user base 
despite the competition.  

Unfortunately, the San Francisco-based company has also garnered some 
censorship, with reports that the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has moved 
to block its citizens from accessing SafeWeb's secure surfing site.
