F-Secure 2012 and Google Chrome

Hey.

Is there a plan to improve the browser protection for the Google Chrome Browser in the F-Secure IS 2012?

I hope so.

We are evaluating the possibility on expanding our browser support beyond currently supported browsers. At this moment, we cannot comment in detail when that will happen.

Re: F-Secure 2012 and Google Chrome

According to various sites listing worldwide browser usage Chrome is the 3rd most used browser behind IE and Firefox. Although Chrome's usage is still listed mostly below 20%, it is the fastest growing browser iro of usage of all browsers.

 

Maybe something to keep in mind in the next version releases?

I know a lot of people who are using the chrome and they would only use a security suite with the full browsersupport. So the don´t use F-Secure because of the missing support of Chrome

The latest version of FireFox has way more than the acceptable amount of the famous "Mozilla pause", which prompted me to finally stop being lazy and try Chrome. So far I'm liking Chrome, and I would really like to see F-Secure support for it.

Hello,

 

The Online Safety (Browsing Protection & Parental Control) in Internet Security 2012 will support Firefox and Internet Explorer.

 

However, on other Browsers, such as Chrome and Safari, it will work to a limited extend too.

It will block sites when needed but it will not display a block page.

 

Best regards,

Stephan

Re: F-Secure 2012 and Google Chrome

There are those who build websites; we test the site/build with every browser out there, down to Safari.

 

If F-Secure chooses to block my site because Chrome or Safari aren't fully supported, I'm gonna be mad as H-E-Double Toothpick!

 

If you're going to support some of the browsers but not all of them, then you're very remiss in your plan.
