If you’re a Chrome, Firefox or Edge user most likely do not give much thought to other browsers for the web. Avast Secure browser is a great choice if you want a browser that focuses on privacy and safety. The browser based on Chromium comes with the ability to use a click for reference VPN and ad blocker, as well as other features.
You can alter the settings of the ad blocker and set the mode to strict in order to block even the most persistent ads. It also supports the uBlock Origin plugin, which offers third-party filter lists as well as dynamic filters to give you more control. Its phishing prevention helps you stay safe from scammy websites and its banking mode conceals your passwords and credit card details from prying eyes.
Other features include tab grouping, which makes navigating multiple tabs much easier by keeping them all together and well-organized. It will sync bookmarks, history, and other data across different platforms so that you can continue browsing where you left off. It also blocks ads on websites which can speed up loading speeds.
Avast’s web browser appears almost like Google Chrome. It allows you to import all your bookmarks, configuration settings, and other features that are optional. The only drawback is that it sends usage statistics and crash reports to Avast’s servers, which you can change at secure://settings/importData. In other words, it’s a great browser with plenty of privacy and security features that could make a good alternative to the big three.
