Great, the bug from 2345 is fixed now, good job.
Else, the new beta is running smooth here, so far.

Thanks for the new beta. I got an "Avast is not running" error window before reboot, but I don't know it was beta related. I'll post when I found something.

Downloaded avast_free_antivirus_setup_offline.exe, disconnected from the network and installed, the license is invalid, and network activation is required.

Opera does not yet support TLS 1.3 by default.
However Opera is very similar to Chrome in this regard so once enabled, scanning of TLS 1.3 in Opera should work.

Chrome only with Draft 28
What this means?

When TLS 1.3 is being designed, each iteration is called a "Draft". As the design process nears the end the changes between each draft are smaller.
This means that it makes sense to only support the later drafts and then the final version.

Avast now supports TLS 1.3 Draft 26, 27 and 28 and will support the future and final version of TLS 1.3

Chrome uses Draft 23 by default right now. However you can enable usage of Draft 28 manually in Chrome settings.

Thanks for answer. But majority users not change this setting in Chrome and that means they will not be protected.
And because Chrome is most used browser this should be problem.
