Wow, the recent changes betas in AVAST is tempting me to try it again with behavioral shield, web protection without the need for the extension on the browsers, seems like they are going in a interesting way to improve.

Lets hope they are not going this way that popups comes in the middle of a screen when it blocks malware , like in previous beta !

I actually kind of prefer them in the middle of the screen.

I find it almost too easy for some users to ignore bottom right hand of screen pop ups (avast, toast notifications)
I know my wife has for blocked web domains a few times lol

I may be the only one though.
