New interface, features capstone Avast 8 (pictures)
Check out Avast's new look and new features, which include a file shredder, browser cleaner, and software update tool.
Avast Free goes white
Avast's changes its design and its color scheme. While the paid versions retain a dark theme, Avast Free goes back to basic white. The interface across all four versions is now much simpler, with big tiles and easier-to-reach advanced settings.
An unusual move for Avast 8 was to include a remote access feature. The implementation sounds weird, too, with both computers required to have some version of the suite. A Web console would be better for easy access.
