If you’re a Chrome, Firefox or Edge user, you probably aren’t thinking twice to alternative browsers. Avast Secure is a good option to use if you’re looking for a web browser that puts an emphasis on security and privacy. The Chromium-based browser includes the ability to use a click for reference VPN as well as ad blocking, among other features.
You can modify the settings of the ad blocker and also enable the strict blocking mode in order to block even the most persistent ads. It also supports the uBlock Origin plug-in, which includes dynamic filters as well as third-party lists to provide better control. Its phishing protection helps keep you from fraudulent websites, while its banking mode helps keep your passwords, credit card information and other sensitive information from prying eyes.
Tab grouping is another feature that allows you to navigate multiple tabs while organizing them. It will sync bookmarks, history, and other data across all platforms to allow you to continue browsing from where you started. And it automatically blocks online ads to drastically speed up loading times on websites.
If you’re already familiar with Google Chrome, you’ll feel at ease with Avast’s version of the browser since it looks similar to Google Chrome. It lets you import your settings, bookmarks, and other features you’d like to add when you switch to it. The only drawback is that it sends usage statistics and crash reports to Avast’s servers, which you can change at secure://settings/importData. However, it’s a good browser with a variety of security and privacy features that could make an alternative to the big three.
