Which Browsers are supported?
« on: December 02, 2013, 06:56:48 PM »
Hello,

I user Avast 2014 Free Antivirus and as you know it installs the 'Avast Browser Security and Web Reputation Plugin' into Firefox. The trouble is that on system I always have graphic-errors in Firefox.  (when I scroll the links up and down in the left part of the programme.)

Therefore I would like to use another Browser, but I decline the use of Chrome and Internet Explorer.

Is there a way to use another Browser and get the Avast Security-plug in as well for this other Browser? (for example Cyberfox, which is equivalent to Firefox, but I tried it, Avast doesn't install the Security-plug  into Cyberfox when I start the Browser)

Thanx for the answer,

Kai

I use Pale Moon (Mozilla Based) as my default browser and that is not supported by the Web Rep plug-in.  I understand that there are many browsers out there and Avast! is probably not able to support them all,  plus I don't have it installed in my Firefox browser either.

You can of course use Web Of Trust instead,  it seems to do a better job than the Avast! plug-in.  :)

Unfortunately they don't entirely do the same thing the avast online security (AOS) add-on does more. That said if you can't get the AOS to work with your browser you have little choice than go for the lessor of the two.
