Avast Secure Browser may look similar to Chrome at first when you open it. It is based on Chromium. The home page features the search bar and you can add shortcuts to websites to it. The browser has an option called adblock which blocks ads that are not needed on websites by using the uBlock plug-in. You can choose between three different settings for blocking ads including Balanced, Strict and Essential. The Strict setting provides the best protection, but it can sometimes cause websites to not load properly. You can also add websites to the exclusion list if wish to display ads on them, or if the adblocker plugin is causing issues in rendering the site.
In addition to the user, Avast Secure Browser Pro comes with a variety of additional extensions you can install. This is an excellent option to modify the functionality of the browser. The browser can also transfer bookmarks and history across platforms, including mobile devices.
