    Yet another 'Browser' rears it's head upon the 'Surfing Seas'!
    Avira Scout Browser, (Version 2016.01.14.00353b (beta) based on Chromium 47.0.2526.111), available for testing now but, you need to apply for it.

    This is simply a Chromium based browser heavy laden with 'Safe Browsing' features supported by Avira.

    Not many, if any, tallies are in on this 'noobie' so, if you happen to be testing this one out, by all means, post your views, reviews or votes here.

    Right you are!

    I found it reminiscent of a time when I had Norton on the PC and you could add the 'Safe Site Search', etc. toolbars to your browser.

    This one, though, is by no means sluggish!

    It might be a nice contender for those who like that type of security blanket.

    Heck.. everyone wants to make their own I guess. There are far too many FireFox derivatives as it is. We really don't need anymore. And this is like programming languages. There are so many it's not even funny. In most cases you can get by with around 4-5.

    have to agree with Jeff one this one.

    And very few are original. They're always "based" or "branched" from another, be it Chromium, Mozzilla Firefox, or Opera.

    Plus my experience with browsers from AV companies, is they're usually slow as all beat hell. When you click a site, it first sends the URL to the AV company and checks it against a data base(yup you tin foil scopophobics, you're surfing is being watched when using AV browsers, bwahahahaha!) then if it's clean, off ya go!
