Great validation tool!

Hi all,
Maybe you already know, but I just found out about this and I wanted to share:
It is a form validation function, native in php, that I never heard about:
PHP Filter

Does anyone know why it isn't widely used? Is it slower than normal validation or is there any other reason?

I'm just astonished that such an easy way of validating input or checking for GET vars isn't used...

It looks like it's an extension for PHP that few hosts have. I'm not sure, so please correct me if I'm wrong.

I think the main reason it's not used much though, is because people who are building things do as a rule make their own filters. Whether they use regular expressions or simple str_replace statements, it's easy to make a fairly secure means of inputting data into a program if you know what you're doing.
