Safezone
« on: August 17, 2013, 11:20:20 PM »
Is there a way to use another Browser other than Chrome for safezone? I will never use it if that is my only choice.

As far as I'm aware, No.

The safebrowser is based on chromium (NOT Chrome) and is built into the safezone; by using another browser you break the purpose of the safezone completely isolating it from the regular desktop.

Chromium is just an open source version of Chrome. Without Chrome there would be no Chromium. Google is still involved and I trust Google as much as I do the NSA. Avast could have chosen another browser but then they would lose all of the funding from Google.

They get no funding from google for the chromium based safezone browser, after all isn't that the point of open source. There won't be too many open source browsers available. Not only that some banking sites may not recognise/approve some of the more exotic open source browsers.

Any funding avast may get would be from the Google Chrome installations and not from the safezone browser, completely different and separate issue.

Google chrome is fine, I don't understand why you don't seem to like new things. You don't like modern web browsers and you don't seem to like the new avast icon.

I don't like Browser that tracks every place I go. I have a great concern for privacy. Any Browser could have been used for that purpose. I use AIS but my wife uses the free version and I also do not care for the installation method where you have to opt out of installing Google Chrome and making Google your home page. This is still a free internet and I have the right to state my opinion. That is what I did. As for the Icon , I don't even use Icons on my desktop. It is also quite easy to change an Icon on your Desktop. I use a modern Browser-Firefox  :)
