The vast majority of people get their information from online sources nowadays (social media, news articles, etc.) However, there is bound to be factually incorrect information floating around that may sound right to people, and inevitably rumors will start to spread of whether such information is actually true. We wanted to build something that would actually be useful to people and make correct information more accessible. We built a Google Chrome extension that could be plugged in anywhere to check validity of facts on the screen or just the reputation of the website as a whole. Our biggest challenge was doing the frontend, as none of us really had too much JavaScript experience.
