I always send a very small amount to verify just in case. Sounds like it would work to mitigate the risks against this as well.

I got an email today saying they updated the ledger chrome browser to address the "man in the middle" attack. If you're a ledger user you will probably get this email as well.

This is another reason I like the KeepKey too. The screen is large and sleek and makes it easier to verify that the address you want to send it to is the address that is actually displayed on the screen.
