Guys, have you tried Shielded window already?

If you have NG installed and ready, the option should be in the browser menu.

I can't beleive how great this browser is! Its literally better than Chrome, AND way ahead of Edge already! Well done guys! Now my default Browser! :)
Took a while to work out the drag and drop system with the bookmark bar from importing, but I think at this rate, you guys are onto a real winner with this browser.
One thing that ALWAYS happens to me is with Facebook - when im commenting on a post, it always seems to crash.

Can I suggest once it gets out of beta, offering it to people general? I think the only thing missing is slightly better ad blocking support.

Hi anarkii,

thanks for your positive feedback! We already work on the crashes - they used to appear on Facebook or Google Doc. sites. SafeZone browser will be part of our premium products - IS, Pro and Premier.

Can you give us bit more info of what you mean by slightly better ad blocking support. SafeZone Ad Blocker works with EasyList so if you see that some Ads are not blocked you can either import/use some additional filter (EasyList specific for some country or region) or block the Ad manually.

I hope you will stay with SafeZone, once again..thanks for you feedback.

I realized that once I fooled around with it more. The crashes are random with Facebook, I wish I knew what was causing it (maybe a 3rd party addon from another browser i dont know) but it seems to be common with that site.

Does the Safezone browser get updated with each Beta release or do we need to update it seperately?

Well, there's no New Shielded Tab in my main menu just New Tab, New Window and New Pay Mode Tab. Noticing someone else's post I took a look at the Task Manager, I've 28 instances of Safe Zone listed there. All rather frustrating and bewildering. Windows 8.1

I like the new Safezone and the way 'pay mode' is built in to the Browser.
Unfortunately my Premier version is installed on an old Dell OS and so NG doesn't come into play and thus no "Shielded Mode"
No worries, still like the new Safezone Browser.  :)

Performing a full shutdown rather than the usual hybrid shutdown (Win 8.1) seems to have solved the missing New Shield Window option.
One big improvement, I can now use my password manager, Password Safe, without it freezing the browser which it did in the previous version all too frequently.

Not much, Passwords not working even after exporting from lastpass to the service. Kinda loppy, Need to find a better alternative browser to suite the need well. Sticking with Firefox, Vivaldi and Torch.
Good that it's comes with the product any way. May come in hand some time when the other browsers fail to do the job, I prefer Firefox for all the purpose.

Try a repair:
Program and features> Select Avast > select Repair. When the operation is finished,
reboot your system. :)
