New browser version 90.0
« on: April 21, 2021, 08:53:25 AM »
Hello everyone,

We’re pleased to announce that we have released a new version of Avast Secure Browser (ASB) for Windows - version 90.0. This version will be rolled out to all users over the coming days/weeks.

Changes
  • NTP Speed - Significantly increased the new tab load speed with some clever static resource management
  • FLoC disabled - we will be releasing some more info on our decision behind this soon
  • HTTPS Encryption - Chromium v90.0 introduces a new way of handling HTTPS requests. We have incorporated this approach and plan to replace our existing mechanism via HTTPS Everywhere extension, this will reduce our resource footprint.


Fixes
  • Improved the overall stability of the Browser
  • Improved speed and stability of Avast Sync
  • Other Chromium 90 fixes, including 37 security fixes
  • Minor design improvements and fixes
  • Fixed some minor Dark Mode Security and Privacy Center issues
  • Accessibility improvements in Security and Privacy Center features
  • Fixed rare instance of browser opening 2 windows
  • Fixed empty bookmarks folder when importing from Firefox, Edge and IE
