NoScript had a function like Surrogate Scripts now no longer working under firefox  since they started to use Quantum,
it had more functionality than the now (re-)introduced SmartBlock has.

Giorgio Maone now wants to bring Surrogate Scripts back as an external extension for chromium based browsers.

Read on Surrogate scripts here-> https://github.com/hackademix/noscript/issues/133

Will Avast Secure Browser have such a functionality as an anti-track smartblock-master module?
Surrogate Scripts has to be preferred over SmartBlock.

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)!

Hey, polonus!

So in the near future we do not plan anything like that, but maybe you will like our new idea of Cookies Isolation  :) It will be announced together with some of our future versions of browser

Have a nice day!
