I don't own the filter, but it looks at bad behavior and bad reports more than look-alikes.  I would imagine that a phishing attack web site would have to be manually reported and blacklisted.  I don't know how the other browsers would handle it.  

Of course if it was https, then the phisher would need a certificate, but the certificate issuers aren't always diligant about that sort of thing.
