Avast - the world's most popular free antivirus - version 5.0 now available for download (Download Squad)

Jan 19th 2010 3:40PM @der_tuxman: Stop trolling, Avast Free and Pro have had the SAME detection for ages, they've said that many times in their blog. It's AVG Free that lacks rootkit detection.

About the popularity, they say Avast is the most popular free AV because they recently reached the 100 million registered users milestone.

Adblockers to save online ads? Google thinks so (Download Squad)

Jan 1st 2010 6:17PM People install adblockers because Google does nothing about the rogue antivirus ads or those ones redirecting you to scam websites. I'd be happy to support any website with ads but the risk is too high nowadays. Those ads are not only annoying, they're truly dangerous.

Opera 10.5's new Carakan Javascript engine is fast - Google Chrome fast. (Download Squad)

Dec 22nd 2009 8:19AM Yeah, and even in V8, Opera performs beautifully well (compared to Firefox)

Opera 10.5's new Carakan Javascript engine is fast - Google Chrome fast. (Download Squad)

Dec 22nd 2009 7:22AM Yeah, the pre-alpha has got lots of bugs, but it's fun to play with.

Opera 10.5's new Carakan Javascript engine is fast - Google Chrome fast. (Download Squad)

Dec 22nd 2009 5:41AM Yeah, V8 benchmark is known for being heavily biased, yet Opera performed beautifully well. If you look at some more meaningful benchmarks you will see that there's not that much difference in performance between Firefox and Chrome.

Here are some Sunspider results on my machine (Intel Core 2 Duo):

Opera 10.50 pre-alpha: 672.8ms
Chrome 4 Dev: 760.4ms
Firefox 3.6 beta 5: 1249.6ms

Opera 10.5 is still a pre-alpha and yet it already beats the fastest browser in the world :)

Internet Explorer 8's SmartScreen blocks 2 million malicious URLs per day (Download Squad)

Nov 28th 2009 5:29PM Guys, no offence, but you don't know what you're talking about. Smartscreen is the best blocking malware because it blocks both websites and most of the downloads(exes). On the other hand, Firefox and Chrome's downloads blocking ability is very limited. If you don't believe me, hear over MalwareURL.com and download some nasties (I should warn you though, this is VERY DANGEROUS and you should run your browser inside a Virtual machine. The nasties listed on the website are widespread malware collected on daily basis, most of them are zero day threats undetected by many antivirus)
