Hi, I installed the Malwarebytes Browser Extension into the Brave Browser (Chrome-based) as an alternative to the Kaspersky extension as the latter only supports Chrome and Firefox. Yours is an excellent product that more than fills the gap so well done! That said, it often runs really, really slowly in Brave and the difference in page load time is 10-30 seconds depending on whether or not the extension is disabled (turning it off in its own settings page makes no difference): - On 17 July, I ran a ping test and it initially doubled ping time, slowed downloads by 15% and uploads by 10%, compared to running the same test immediately after with the extension disabled. - On 31 July I did some online banking and enabled the extension but pages took 30 seconds to load with a message in the bottom corner saying that the browser was waiting for Malwarebytes. - Today it is adding 10 seconds to download times. In the attached video you can see me enable the extension and go to Sky.com - about a 10 second delay. I then disable the extension and go to another national broadcaster (itv.com) and it connects almost instantly. I'd love you to get this fixed as it will give you a real advantage over Kaspersky and plug a security gap in the otherwise brilliant Brave browser. Brave Malwarebytes.mp4
Hello. After reading those scary things about adf.ly and even reading this post: https://forums.malwarebytes.com/topic/140423-adfly-redirecting-my-chrome-browser/ , I decided to search for protection from adfly, because i can in the future meet with this website when downloading something. So my question is: Is AdSkipper ( a program that bypasses the 5 second wait) safe? Disclaimer: I don't have any type of adware i think, i have a MWB Premium trial for 6 days left, i have Adwcleaner and Roguekiller installed, I have been on adf.ly during the trial of MWB and it protected me from hijack.
