There really is no reason to add the extension. Chrome includes Google Safe Browsing by default: https://safebrowsing.google.com/

How to configure it is shown here: https://support.google.com/chrome/answer/9890866?co=GENIE.Platform%3DDesktop&hl=en

Oh no there is a reason to use it. I would like to see if the web site is safe before visiting it.

 The question is can I use it with ESET internet security? Or does maybe ESET have an alternative extension?

Norton Safe Web is reputation based. You also don't need an extension to use it. You can look up a web site status manually here: https://safeweb.norton.com/ . A equivalent and more established service is W.O.T.: https://www.mywot.com/ .

The main thing to realize when using web site reputation processors is their reputation status determination is based on end user input which can be questionable. Its status validity is also based on access frequency. A high use web site might show more negative use comments than a low use web site.

Also there have been past complaints that reputation web sites perform user tracking activities.

I personally find reputation web site useless these days. Web browsers like Chrome and Firefox have such ability built-in. Use of a good adblocker such as uBlock Origin also have filters that can be used for this purpose or can be added.
