After Doing so many reviews of security softwares for severals years i have noticed a certain thing that the big players like Symantec & Mcafee are losing their market share. Their was a time when Mcafee & Symantec are considered to be superior in every department look at norton till 2002 and macfee till v7 after that they concentrated more on adding junk to softwares rather than anything special they always make their pacakage attractive so to increase the share among home users but the quality of the product decreases every year. The toll that is put on the system is sometimes inacceptale and literraly bring a system to a crawl. They all followed microsoft when microsoft introduces security centre (which is useless) they all followed it. The use of activex by mcafee is pretty stupid move as activex is not considered safe by any means. Now you look at their new beta products line for 2007 Mcafee has chaged it interface to a more cramped one and norton agains seems to following Microsoft one care. But on the other hand look at the other small companies who have grown superbly with every release their is some drastic improvement on every version look at kaspersky 3 years back with their 3.0 version it literally bring a system to a halt. but they have improved that with every version and now now the KAV/KIS 2006 is considered to the best package among all. Look at the eset how they have improved over 1.0 to 2.0 version and the 3.0 version is going to blow away all the other as i have heard from the sources with its superb firewall and improved antivirus. So the point is the big players having the largest market share should consider improving their softwares to the right path rather than just adding more & more crap to it they have the resources and skiled professionals to do it.
