Avast Secure Browser, a Chromium web browser, comes with a lot of security and privacy features. It's a great choice for those who are content with their current web browser but wish to add additional features such as ad-blocking, or a VPN. It provides a range of customizable options, making it a great choice for people who want to set everything up the way they want. It is also fast and works on all platforms, which means you will get the same experience of browsing across all devices. Bookmarks and history will be with you.

The first thing you'll notice about this web browser is how fast it runs. It's almost as quick as Chrome, and this speed carries to real-world use. The browser also blocks advertisements to stop users from being distracted while browsing, and will block flash data files that could aid in loading pages more quickly. It also comes with an anti-tracking feature that will prevent websites from tracking your movements. It also checks your passwords on websites such as HaveIBeenPwned and make sure that they are secure.

The browser comes with a handful of extensions already installed, but you can install more easily via the Store. One of the most fascinating is Bank Mode which is a sandbox-like feature that will run your browser and other applications within a virtual computer that is completely isolated from your main system. This feature is designed to shield you against phishing scams, by keeping your bank information confidential.
