Link doesn't work because it wants to go through some guce.advertising.com and something just dead blocks it for me, could be uBlock or NextDNS...

It's interesting tho. Maybe a bit of a shame that avast! didn't take it over as AVIRA does have some of rather interesting tech like their cloud machine learniong and local AHeAD heuristics. But their interface is so horribly inconsistent and out of date despite their recent effort to bolt 3rd iteration of interface facelift on top of old ones still lurking underneath somewhere. I wonder if new investors will do something about their crappy interface situation.

Side note, I did read the article regarding their UI on your blog. Good job..!!

Interesting acquisition... will Avira now be more competetive with Avast and others on market?
