Font in main UI is ok, but in settings it is so tiny and sub-pixel

And what happened for hips?

Apart from Behavior Shield, I'm absolutely NOT impressed with the progress done on the GUI and its UX...

My honest opinion...

I have a feeling we are fighting a losing battle on the GUI.

I'm connected to a network and Avast Firewall is saying "You're not connected to a Network"...

I really don't understand how you can do a better interface in paint than the "professional" guy  of avast.

I would like to have a behavior blocker more customization, I guess there are hidden settings that could be available and would be appreciated by advanced users

The application rules, the flatten view should be the default, and it should have the icons of the apps.

This also just hit me that I somehow missed in the past days...

Why is the "Settings" button not square button with nice gear icon like all the rest of buttons in the sidebar? And same for "Upgrade" button. It's just bunch of inconsistent things thrown together to form a GUI.

GUI has to be fast, responsive, pleasant to look at, functional and needs to be consistent across all panels and menus. Why am i telling this to a team of professionals with decades of experience!? ???

The UI is fairly consistent, but made of different elements of course. The reason why the Settings button is different is that it's not part of the main navigation. It's intentionally pushed to the background, i.e. made less visible.
If at first you don't succeed, then skydiving's not for you.

If it's made of different elements, then it's not consistent. White checkboxes, white dropdown menus, white panels, white mega buttons, it's all sticking out of purple interface like sore thumbs. All 345 of them on one left foot. Sure, their whiteness is certainly consistent across the board, but it's clashing with the very foundation of the new GUI theme. It feels like sticking Windows 9x styled menus into Windows 7 or Windows 10. It just doesn't compute.

Then there are flip switches where some are round and some are rectangular. And if you open a main GUI and "Settings" panel and bloody close and Help (?) buttons don't even match. They look somewhat the same, but they are of different size. And there are hundreds of such examples and when you have hundreds of things that just don't match together, the overall feel will NEVER be good. It doesn't feel good.

I honestly don't care if avast!'s GUI remains absolutely the same through several years and you just change the year number on it. If it's good to begin with. But that's just not the case. It's always "That'll do" and "We'll fix it later" and it never becomes good. And you keep fiddling with it in all wrong ways.

Want to know what's a good interface in my "design" book? Kaspersky 2017. I suggest you guys install it and see what I mean. It's beautiful, consistent, logically laid out, well organized, not cluttered, it's everything avast!'s new interface isn't.

Thank you developers for you hard work! Running smooth so far!

One question/comment: Why is Behavior shield not included in "minimal protection" package? It's one of the components needed for virus protection, no?
