Huh. Did you know that if you use Avast anti-virus, they are tracking every single thing you click on in your web browser, storing this, and selling this data to marketers?

Well yeah, in the last 4 years Avast has been a downspiral of paranoia-inflicting advertisements, intrusive browser addons, and startup slowdowns. As soon as that started showing up I switched away.
Sadly my parents still use it, and the custom secure browser that comes with it.
