  1. 1. Would you want immunet to build this browser?



Recommended Posts

Basically, it is a chromium-based browser (for those of you who are new to the world of browsers, chromium is an open-source browser currently being developed by Google [Google Chrome]. It offers a wide variety of features such as html 5 support, extensions, sandbox technology, webkit engine, faster page rendering, customizable gui, and more) that features antivirus detection and removal. Here is what I'm hoping it'll do (in no particular order):

 

1. Automatic scanning of downloads

2. Download management (pause/resume downloads)

3. Better security and privacy (no unique ID, no RLZ tracking, built-in adblocker, clean reset [clear cache and history], virtual keyboard, antivirus scanner, Incognito mode)

4. Option to scan system

5. Community-based

6. Offers chat with friends (a messenger with people connected to you on the browser and immunet protect - if applicable - itself primarily for easily troubleshooting systems or warning them of potential threats and the like)

7. Faster page rendering and downloads

8. Extension compatibility

9. Compatibility option for other browsers (browse pages posing as another browser for compatibility)

10. File access directly from the browser, sandboxing applications.

 

Basically, it is integrating Immunet Protect Free with Chromium browser and adding a few extra features (added features are: [1] antivirus scanner, [2] compatibility option [3] built-in messenger, [4] file-access (to extend the use of the sandbox) and [5] download management. That's it. You can use other open-source browsers of course, but I prefer Chrome if we're to boost security.

 

I'm not sure if this can be done with Chrome. However, I've seen Bitdefender add an extension to Chrome to scan systems. It's taking it to another level. I've also seen Chromium-based browsers with download management. Facebook uses the browser for chatting with friends, QtWeb offers compatibility options for other brosers (also open-source) and Epic browser allows file access via the browser itself. Nothing new, really. Just combining everything into a single package. It should be lighter than Epic, Firefox and Google Chrome, but a bit heavier than QtWeb (and only QtWeb).

 

What do you guys think? (Do you) Like it or not?

Although I'm a die hard Firefox user (with all the add-ons available it's one of the most customizable) if this browser had all or most of the features listed in your post, Spainach, I would give it a test drive. I'm not afraid to try new software applications. Are you waiting for the poll results or is there a beta version in the works now? I assume you would need beta testers if actual development commenced. I would be willing to be a beta tester if it comes to fruition. I've been a beta tester for Firefox and Panda Security in the past.

I was hoping people would put in as well their reasons for their choice. But it seems that is a wee bit out of question. Anyway, the polls will be closed after twenty or more people have cast their votes within the time span of a month (the poll will still be closed once a month passes regardless of whether or not the votes sum up to twenty people). Please do comment your reasons for wanting or not wanting the development of this browser.

That would certainly be wonderful. The sad fact though is that it is not yet being developed. I merely presented an idea to the immunet team that perhaps they would consider to develop. But, as of today's results, this seems highly unlikely. However, may I suggest to you epic browser if you haven't heard. It is based on Firefox and provides a lot of different functionalities including a built-in antivirus within the browser powered by ESET's Nod32 (provides downloads scanning and on-demand system scan with no real-time protection), a collection of applications and games including a built-in messenger, a writer (wordpad), the functionality to access files via the browser and more. Also compatible with most firefox add-ons.

I know very well the Epic browser. I think Immunet implements better than Nod32 as our definitions are in the cloud and not installed on computer, we are currently working on plug-in and above the "Browser Protection", we place great emphasis on this.

 

To answer your question I do not think Immunet released a browser, perhaps in the distant future.

Immunet should stick with security - Taking a lot of loads like Comodo is unwise

 

Hi Chris Thomas,:D

 

I agree, Immunet should stick to its strong security features only!B) Many softwares have lost supporters (subscribers), because of trying to cover too many unknown areas! (eg. PC Tools, Webroot, ZoneAlarm).:angry: Immunet should develop cloud- based antivirus & antimalware and maybe a cloud-based firewall, if possible! Not more! dry.gif

To be frank, Immunet is not ready developed yet!:ph34r: Immunet has still many disturbing flaws, that should be corrected immenently! Firstly, Immunet should now concentrate upon reducing the irritating high rate of "False Positives", because of too strong heuristic tools!:wacko: Then, not earlier, Immunet could offer an extention to Chrome and/or Firefox with search links warnings! Immunet shouls take this major step, when Immunet has completely done its own homework!:huh:

If Immunet will face hard competion on the market in the future, then the old saying is valid also for Immunet: "If you cannot beat them, join them!":wub:

 

Cheers,

I voted yes for a Chrome extension... rolleyes.gif

 

Not sure what you would make it do though, scan Google search results like AVG's LinkScanner maybe? unsure.gif

 

Cool idea though.

immunet should develop tools for web browser attacks, and advanced options to authenticate users and allow writing script to block traffic or control GPO for the local host.

Firefox has an add-on called "No-Script" that can be custom configured to block any unwanted web scripts including advertising, tracking and potentially malicious scripted objects.

Wouldn't think of using Firefox without this very useful add-on! There's also a version of No-Script that can be used for Internet Explorer as well.
