If you’re a Chrome, Firefox or Edge user you probably don’t give a second thought to alternative web browsers. Avast Secure is a great choice if you want a browser that places a lot of emphasis on security and privacy. The Chromium browser includes a click-reference VPN as well as an ad blocker, among other features.
Its advertising blocker lets you alter the settings and allow strict blocking mode to keep out even the most persistent ads. It also supports the uBlock Origin plug-in, which provides dynamic filters and third-party lists to help you manage your ads. Its phishing protection helps keep you safe from scammy websites while its banking mode keeps your passwords, credit card details and other sensitive information hidden from the prying eyes of others.
Other features include tab grouping, which helps navigate multiple open tabs easier by keeping them together and well-organized. It also syncs bookmarks and history across platforms so you can continue browsing where you left off on a different device. It also blocks online ads which can speed up loading speeds.
Avast’s web browser looks almost the same as Google Chrome. It lets you import your configuration settings, bookmarks and other features that you may want to use after switching to Avast. The only drawback is that it sends usage statistics and crash reports to Avast’s servers, which you can change at secure://settings/importData. It’s a great web browser with plenty of privacy and security features.
