    I have noticed that Malwarebytes Browser Guard (MBG) causes sites to open noticeably a bit slower than does Emsisoft Browser Security (EBS).

    Q1- a)Has anyone else had experience with both of these extensions? b)If so, did you notice any difference in speed of opening websites?

    Q2- Have there ever been any tests of the relative effectiveness of Browser security apps such as MBG & EBS?

    @Azure Phoenix -- Yes, that confirms my experience with MBG. How about the Emsisoft extension: have you read anything about that?

    @Azure Phoenix -- Thanks! Because of your posts, I have discovered BitDefender TrafficLight. It is very configurable and seems light. Because it's from BitDefender, it should be equal to or better than MBG & EBS. I like it!!!
