I don’t like the SafeZone feature in Avast Internet Security

Done reviewing Avast Internet Security program that includes SafeZone desktop (also known as SafeZone browser).  It’s not cool because it will only use Google Chrome browser to browse the net.  It should not be "called as SafeZone desktop" but SafeZone browser only.  Google Chrome browser is integrated and I personally don’t use or like Google Chrome.  Avast Internet Security doesn’t install standalone Google Chrome browser on Windows but will be the browser if you bring up SafeZone feature. 

Read more at http://www.brighthub.com/computing/smb-security/reviews/112570.aspx so you’ll know what else I don’t like with SafeZone in Internet security program by Avast.  I think people who are using Google Chrome will have no problem with it.  I just hope Avast team will make that SafeZone browser feature to work to whatever is the default browser.  I know you can use Sandbox feature to virtualize other browser or application but it’s not the Sandbox I’m talking about but the SafeZone.  I guess it has to do with their "partnership" by pushing Google Chrome (piggybacking in free Avast antivirus by bundling third-party installer on Avast installation package… and now it’s integrated in paid software of Avast).  Geez.

Anyhoo, the AV of Avast has improved.
