Mac Early Access
« on: August 20, 2019, 11:01:19 AM »
Avast Secure Browser - Mac Early Access

Hello all,

We're excited to announce a big step forward in our browser journey - the official beta release of our Mac version.

It contains many of the features that our Windows version already enjoys, including:
  • Adblock
  • Anti-Fingerprinting
  • Anti-Tracking
  • Anti-Phishing
  • Password Manager
  • And much more...

Try it out and share your feedback here in our forum. We need your help to build the best browser we can and help shape our now cross-platform product roadmap.
 
If you haven’t downloaded it, get it here and try it out:
https://platform.avast.com/ASB/Mac/

Note:
We are working on the Dark Mode functionality, so for now please use the light mode.

From,
Browser Team

Hi Bob,

at the moment the Mac Early Access does not have Bank Mode, but we are working on it as we would love to give this feature also to Mac users.

Good morning,

Just got the browser installed and imported all my bookmarks. On first impression it is bright, clean and fast. Great first impressions!
I did notice that the settings menu, the 3 vertical ellipses are blank unless I mouse over them.

I'll play around with it more later.

Hi Kharihalter, thanks for your feedback and great to hear it's bright, clean, and fast!
 
The reason why the settings menu is blank, is because at the moment we don't support Dark Mode.
Our developers are working on this, and soon we will support Dark Mode. If you want to see the settings menu, please change to Light Mode on your Mac. You can find this in System Preferences > General

Good day,

Disabling dark mode on my Mac did the trick! Thank you.
