Now the company is developing its own web browser with security tools built in.
Avira Browser is an open source web browser based on Google’s Chromium (which is the open source version of Chrome). It runs on Windows, Mac, or Linux and you can sign up to beta test the browser y joining the Avira Beta community.
While you could just install the Avira extension for Chrome, the company says the Avira browser will offer more features, more options, and better security.
Among other things, the browser will use Avira’s database to let you know when you’re visiting dangerous web sites, make sure you’re connecting to websites using secure connections, and block unwanted scripts from running.
The browser’s designed to do all of that without any user intervention, but Avira says advanced users will be able to adjust the settings, install Chrome-compatible browser extensions, or make other changes.
