Sorry PJ, but I can't agree with you. What's the point of having super-duper antiphishing features in web browsers if they were turned off by default? Why users should be bothered to turn them on? Those who don't want such antiphishing services are a minority. So they can have a little more hassle to turn off the features they don't need. Imagine if car producers would do as you suggest - latest cars with ABS, ESP, and other safety features would have them turned off by default. Would that improve their security? I don't think so.
These antiphishing filters are being made with a good will. Their primary function is to protect users. If you don't believe in it then you can check the source code and see if that is true or not. You can always opt-out from them so you always have a choice.
