    Only "Avast":D . Both of them. But most people want Avast free, IMO.

    I agree, such statistics are meaningless.

    If anything Symantec/Norton is clearly mentioned more throughout the web and newsgroups, if only to complain about Symantec/Norton.

    And most asnything that is allegedly free will have a disproportionate share of references, deserved or not.

    Nice statistic mrhero. It nicely proofs the trend of the new, fast & quality AVs.
    Norton and Mcafee are dinosaurs these days, mostly only companies use them.

    To me it looks like according to your charts Kaspersky hit the same high as avast but was up there far longer.

    I would like to add here that the word "avast", "mcafee" and "norton" does not relate to antivirus software only. If one does a web search,one also gets webpages which are not related to antivirus software.

    NOD is also on an ascending path. Keep going that way. :) Perhaps version 3.0 will make the difference. :p
