If you use Chrome, Firefox, or Edge you might not consider giving other web browsers a second look. But if you’re in search of one that puts a lot of emphasis on security and privacy, Avast Secure Browser is definitely worth considering a look. The Chromium browser has a click-reference VPN and ad blocker among other features.

You can customize the settings of the ad blocker and activate strict blocking mode to block the most persistent ads. It also comes with the uBlock Origin plug-in, which includes dynamic filters as well as third-party lists that provide better control. Its phishing prevention helps you stay safe from scammy sites, while its banking mode conceals your passwords and credit card information from the eyes of a snooper.

Other features include tab grouping, which makes browsing multiple tabs more efficient by keeping them in a group and organized. It also syncs bookmarks, history, and other data across all platforms to allow you to continue browsing from where you stopped. It also blocks ads on websites which helps speed up website loading times.

If you’re already familiar with Google Chrome, you’ll feel right at home with Avast’s browser, as it appears almost identical. And it allows you to import your configuration settings, bookmarks and other features that you may want to use when you switch to it. The only drawback is that it sends usage statistics and crash reports to Avast’s servers, which you can change at secure://settings/importData. It’s a good web browser with plenty of security and privacy features.
