Avast Secure Browser is a Chromium-based browser that comes with lots of security and privacy features. It’s a good option for people who are already satisfied with their current browser, but would like to add additional features such as advertising blockers and a VPN. It also offers a lot of options for personalization, making it great for those that like to be set up exactly how they would like. It’s also speedy and works across platforms so you’ll get the same experience for browsing on all devices, with bookmarks and history that follow you.
It’s first noticeable how fast this web browser is. It’s about as fast as Chrome and this speed is carried over into real-world use. It also blocks ads to keep your browsing experience free of distractions. Additionally, it will stop flash data files which will help websites load faster as well. It comes with an anti-tracking feature that stops websites from following you. It also scans your passwords on websites such as HaveIBeenPwned and ensure that they are safe.
The browser comes with several extensions already installed, but you can install more easily through the Store. One of the most interesting is Bank Mode which is a Sandbox-like feature that runs your browser and other applications within a virtual computer that is completely isolated from your main system. This is designed to safeguard you from frauds using phishing, by keeping your banking data private.
