The OP clearly states this which would indicate changes in the whole product.

+ Huge internal changes for product stabilization
What I meant was the inclusion of some AVG features. Like now having dual scanning engines making it comparable to dual-engine Av/AM like Emsisoft Antimalware, 360 TSE, G Data Antivirus, Trustport Antivirus etc

Ransomware protection and exploit protection also come to my mind

Thanks

Is AVG Online Shield better than Avast's Web Shield? If these 2 are the same then no point the duplication, right?

What about any exploit protection?

Hasn't Avast free had Hips included for a while now?
Yes Avast have HIPS but not a full blown, which only focuses on suspicious behavior like activity unfortunately ineffective.

Hopefully Avast should undergone intensive improvements on the newly HIPS, especially their CyberCapture which the cloud itself must suppose to be active nowadays.

I don't know much about AVG's Online Shield but if they mix both of them then it would be more powerful.
I don't know about exploit protection but avast has it own.

Discussing the new GUI is like discussing earrings on a pig. At the end of the day it still oinks.
Hello @cruelsister:)
Of course you are right, the most important for an AV is to be as effective as possible.
But you are really very cruel with aesthetes like me who love beautiful things: cars, motorbikes, musics, art, and of course women (or men;)).
With kind regards:)
