    No it doesn't seem so, as this address redirects to the Avira Safe Shopping extension, which is the new name of Avira Browser Safety if i'm not mistaken. It does the same job as a web blocker, but also redirects you to "safe shopping sites". And by that it means when shopping Avira will propose to redirect you to affiliate websites to make some extra cash. Something i really don't like in a security company...

    The old Avira Browser Safety used Mixpanel for analytics (got blocked by Emsisoft Anti-Malware) and that is also something I don't like to see in a security addon.
