I have been using Google Chrome for some time, and now the latest version 68 because it is said that Chrome is a secure browser.

That said to prevent Browser Exploitation, what app would you recommend?

I know there are apps like NoScript available but they can break websites, and one must be a savvy user to use them properly.

BTW, I am currently using Eset IS and ZAL as my base protection.

Suggestions?

ESET IS already includes anti-exploit protection:
Exploit Blocker
Blocks attacks specifically designed to evade antivirus detection and eliminates lockscreens and ransomware. Protects against attacks on web browsers, PDF readers and other applications, including Java-based software.
Using another anti-exploit solution will likely cause conflict and subsequent issues.

Nobody can answer this correctly for you because you didn't state what version of Windows you are using.

Anyway, generally, as far as anti-exploits, HitmanPro Alert is the leader.

You shouldn't add it if you intend on continuing to use ESET IS; overlaps and conflicts between anti-exploits and other security softs is often found out too little, too late.

use malwarebytes anit-exploit, i find that hitman is buggy.
Is anti-exploit still available to download as single product? I used it when it was on beta stage, but it got merged with malwarebytes paid version or something..

Edit: Found it, running smoothly

Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit 1.12 Build 90 released

Anyone interested

Just curious, does it update automatically or do i have to download the beta file always manually

The Anti Ransomware is very good. It reverses changes that the ransomware did once it detects it, if it modified any files. Here is a review on it here.

Very unlikely i have ever need for anti-ransomware, since i have voodooshield + kaspersky free anyways. I just like the anti-exploit + cleaner along with malwarebytes free. But the extra layer protection of anti-ransomware compotent is always welcome

Actually voodooshield has anti-exploit so i wouldnt need the appcheck at all

The "anti-exploit" of Voodooshield, and probably of AppCheck also, is really post-exploit protection. In other words, it mitigates an attack that has already succeeded in compromising a vulnerable application, such as a browser.
A true anti-exploit -- for instance, HitmanPro.Alert or MalwareBytes AntiExploit -- tries to prevent the initial exploit from taking place. But exploits are constantly changing, and blocking too many kinds of actions can cripple the application, so a true anti-exploit may or may not succeed in protecting.
I would place more faith in good post-exploit protection, although both types could be used, if you don't mind burdening your system down with all that code.

The best policy is simply to avoid using applications that are easy to exploit and are commonly exploited. Next best solution is to sandbox or isolate them.

Would you recommend to run malwarebytes anti-exploit with voodooshield? if malwarebytes cant prevent attack it moves to voodooshield and is user dependent by then?

On topic: Just use products wich have regular updates and avoid products that are outdated and vulnerable because of slow patching
