That's a rather funny idea.
The detections / heuristics is worked on by the virus lab, while the program features are added/maintain by the (basically unrelated) team of developers - a different group of people, different skills. So if you think that not adding new features would have any effect on the detection... sorry, it wouldn't.


I guess the point here is that one could hope that redirecting some of these program features developers resources to work on better detections in the virus lab would make more sense.


 Less bells and whistles, better detection rates, nobody cares which group works on it.


Again I'm a long time Avast user and I recommend it all of the time so i'm not trying to slam the Avast team but there's features being added I don't care for. Like I said some people like the features some don't.

Agree.
Just that I don't see any bells and whistles here... Just useful/optional features.

Couldn't agree more Tech. As much as I don't like the CredAlert addition, I love the fact that it's voluntary, and with just a click, I can disable all alerts, and make it like it's not even there. That would be the only feature that I consider a bell/whistle.

I have never paid for an AV before in my life. Then I tried avast! Free for 6 months and liked it so much that I did a trial of AIS, and bought it the same day. :o

What happened Red?

All I know from my first source at Avast! is that they had to fix a network bug.

But I just heard from a different source at Avast! that the new Beta update is ready to be released. So it is up to Vlk now if it will be tonight ;)

Vlk, Chrome changed it's icon since version 10.

Wouldn't be nice to see the new updated icon on the WebRep tab?
Thank you for your work on this great antivirus :)

The icon was updated in the new version. Thanks for reading my post.

opening the "friends" tab in firewall settings doesn't crash Avast anymore 8) ... otherwise not much to say, I didn't have any other problem with the previous version.

okay maybe something minor, not sure if that's reproducible on all systems but I've had this for a while (not just on this version): some lag while switching from the Application Rules tab to the Network Connections tab... IIRC this has already happened months ago, and that was fixed at the time...

I think it was always like this... yeah, there's some activity done there which is causing these delays... I don't think we will do anything about it in this build, but maybe in some of the future program updates.

Thanks
