Should I enable the "warn me" option in Advanced tab for security?

By default it isn't enabled, but as most spoofing sites will try to redirect you, I've had it enabled for a long time - but it seems that more than half the sites I try to go to these days are redirecting. So it has become a pain clicking anything in Gmail as I have to mouse over and allow the redirect by clicking in the top r.h. corner.

(As I do a LOT of research, often 50 clicks from my emails every morning, this is tendonitis territory, not laziness! :-) )

So - how useful is this option? Especially when not even a default?

Chosen solution

Be aware that that setting is an accessibility feature to prevent people with disabilities from getting confused and not a security feature to prevent redirecting.
