expanded support for other browsers. excellent!

Kinda disampointed that my Trend Micro allowed to install wireshark ndis driver :((
Any malware can do that, this is no good Trend Micro...
not to keep this off topic, but wireshark isn't a malicious program, so when trend micro recognized this program and allowed it to run it did the right thing.

anyway, hey gandalf, i was curious, i used to use spyblaster, and use the spybot disinfection and umm, what was that program ... host man, or host something, lol, etc back in win7 days. they all seemed to amend the host file to safeguard browsing. to keep it on spyblaster, do you think they do their own research and make their own lists? or just take them from opendns or a malicious adblocker list, or malicious domains list, or something? i suspect that AV browser plugins etc all use those publically available lists (and the paid ones), so i was wondering if this eloquent program (that i always liked) was redundant for someone like me that has a proliferation of browser extensions that warn of dubious urls?
 
Provides Protection for the Following Browsers:
  • Internet Explorer
    and any browsers that use the Internet Explorer engine, including:
    • AOL web browser
    • Avant Browser
    • Slim Browser
    • Maxthon (formerly MyIE2)
    • and more
  • Google Chrome
  • Mozilla Firefox
  • Microsoft Edge (Chromium)
  • Brave
  • Vivaldi
  • Netscape
  • Seamonkey
  • Pale Moon
  • K-Meleon

i wonder if it helps other chromium based browsers? i use yandex.

Yeah, I also used all those programs back in the days.
Nowadays I try, not easy when visiting forums like MT, to keep it simple.
UpToDate system, and programs, good AV, and system hardening.
Browser with adblocker and password manager.
I don't know if they do their own research, that's a good question on their support thread on Wilders (that you have found, I see from the last post):
For me now it supports the browser I use (MS Edge) I use it as browser hardening.
I use O&O ShutUp10 for privacy (also covers Edge), Simple Windows Hardening from @Andy Ful for as the name implies Windows hardening and SpywareBlaster for browser hardening next to uBlock Origin (adblocker).
It seems that MS Outlook uses IE11 for displaying HTML mails, so in that case SywareBlaster also protects MS Outlook in my system.
