Good work Colin, out of the four scanners you show, I had only heard of/used VirusTotal. It's always good to have more tools.

It looks like Virus Total is the only one that can scan URLs though.

Metascan Online is by far the best option out of all these. Not only is it faster than VirusTotal but recently Metascan Online received a UI facelift that looks absolutely stunning. Metascan Online also offers a free public API. Definitely give the new www.metascanonline.com a look!
