That's unfortunate given alexa's chequered history.

I hope they change it a bit to distance themselves from any similarity.

Well you have to ask why alexa's looks like avast's icon and why don't they change theirs ;D we avast users all know which one should be changed.

I emailed alexa and asked them why they copied the avast logo-maybe all of us should email them.Here is the contact link-

Knowing Alexa's bad history, I think I will refrain from voluntarily giving Alexa my email address.
