It is important to mention that the Beta test will continue and will soon receive the next iteration of our Scout browser.
If you are the run of the mill user who runs an out-of-the-box browser without any security modifications in form of add-ons, this browser will be quite a bit more secure than that. If you know what you are doing though and have a browser with AdBlock, anti-tracking, our ABS, a good search engine, and NoScript your browser should actually be more secure than our current setup. This will change of course.
Avira Scout will be updated when Chrome updates or when we are releasing bugfixes. Our early access phase will be running for a couple of months while the browser will receive new features and improvements.
The extensions and the menu will be updated more frequently.
Your feedback helps us build the fast, secure browser you’ve always wanted. That’s why we release early. Naturally there are still kinks and we hope you’ll help us smooth them out.
Known issues we’re working on:
If you know how to install and uninstall a program, this browser is for you.
