Help us build a better browser!
« on: September 25, 2020, 03:44:10 PM »
Hello everyone,

Our mission is to make the web more secure and private across all your devices. But we need your help!

That’s why we’ve launched Vote for Feature where you, the community, can help us decide on what to work on next by suggesting new ideas and upvoting suggestions from others.

You can check out our new ideas board here

Thanks,
Sander

FIRST ISSUE:
The short-cut tiles on the tabs continually change to the Avast advertising partners.

Second Issue:
The Bookmark Sync has made a mess of my bookmarks! Every time I boot up one of my computers, the bookmarks are added to what has already been synced! I have 5, 6, or more of the same things. But I need sync to function because I must save business sites for my work files!
THIS issue is about to make me give up the Avast browser until it is fixed.

Third Issue:
The browser will freeze for one to two minutes on various websites. I cannot identify any common factor between the sites. This is not a memory issue. I am typically in the middle of work and have to immediately open Chrome to access the site and required information.

Forth Issue:
Please improve the translation function. It occasionally works with Spanish and popular European languages. However, most of those have "English" as available options anyway. There does not seem to be any success with Malaysian or Indonesian, and other South East Asian languages.

All Support Posts get asked about the systems used:
All of my desktop and laptop computers are HP. I am an Avast Premium and WINDOWS 365 subscriber. My internet connection is fiber optic line through Charter/Spectrum with speeds of 100+mbps.

With many browser there are some prominent preferred browser data collectors and data sellers.
For Brave browser on Windows we know that these are Amazon, Google, Salesforce, Linkedln, Reddit, Yahoo and Twitter.

How is this for Avast Secure Browser?

Cybersecurity is more of an attitude than anything else. Avast Evangelists.

Use NoScript, a limited user account and a virtual machine and be safe(r)!

Hello again Don 2, thank you again, could you please send us your diagnostic information, if you don't know how to do that, you should:
1) In omnibox(address bar) of your Avast secure browser type and go to secure://settings/help
2) Click on "Diagnostic Information"
Also, it will be very helpfull if you could provide us some examples of these websites
Best regards,
Aleksandr.

Hello Don 2, thank you for your feedback, really, we are very appreciate!
We are working on improving the translation function  make the translator integration work properly in all countries. We will have an update on that soon, but meanwhile, you can download the Google translate extension from the Chrome Web Store:

I would like to see a more selective History delete option.

Firefox allows deletion of old history by month, or all history older than six months. This slims down the history file, while preserving recent activity.

There is a website I keep visiting that will not show the background video on Avast Secure Browser but every other browser I used (Chrome, Edge, Firefox) works fine. Is there a setting or is this a bug? The site just shows up all black. It is https://www.powerjamproductions.com

I can confirm the problem and have reported it to Avast. Let's see if that helps.
