New Version: v75.1 BETA
« on: July 17, 2019, 07:29:40 PM »
Hello all

We have released a new beta version of Avast Secure Browser - 75.1.1520.101 / 75.1.1520.100. It contains two new features that make the browser even better and faster than before.

We need your help! It would be great if you can try the new version and provide your feedback. Also if you find any problems, please let us know. Thanks.

-------------------------------

This version includes a new performance optimization feature, called Performance Manager, which reduces RAM and CPU usage and extends battery life. Also we have added Hack Check notifications.

Performance Manager - Optimizes CPU & RAM and extends battery life:
This feature will benefit browser users who regularly have multiple tabs open, particularly those using machines with limited memory or laptop users, for whom it will help conserve battery.
Automatically suspending tabs reduces memory consumption and leads to longer battery life, which could translate to better performance of the user's computer.

Hack Check - Be alerted if your data has been compromised:
The Hack Check feature has been improved with new warning pop-ups. These pop-ups are shown when we detect that your login data might be compromised (most likely stolen). In this case Hack Check recommends changing your password immediately. It also prompts a user when we detect that the user’s password is weak and offers a password generator for creating a new one.



Other changes and fixes:
- Fixed potential issue with H.264 video decoding
- New doodle on the New Tab Page
- Fixed manually added search engine disappearing after relaunch

-------------------------------

Existing beta channel users will be updated automatically asap.

For clean install, please download installation package here:

No worries.
This morning I booted up and Avast Secure Browser (beta) updated automatically. Maybe I tried a manual update to early after your original announcement.
All's good now, thanks. :)

Mine also, hence my confusion as that's not what's showing in Ondrejz's post.
It's showing .101/101 as you can see :-\

Hi Jefferson Sant

Yes but what version does your Browser show. Sorry I see it now.
As you can see from my Screenshot with version 75.1.1528.101 mine is showing very different from your screenshot.
