    So on page 13 of this test, different products are evaluated for URL blocking.

    -http://www.pcsecuritylabs.net/document/report/pcsl_win8_security_solution_review_201302.pdf-

    URL or IP blocking for bad sites is a great concept. Prevent getting exposed to bad stuff prior to exposure...

    Trend Micro kicks butt on this test.

    I'd like to see more tests like this.

    I wonder how the different DNS services and Malwarebytes would have done in this test.

    I hope our message board favorite -- AV Comparatives -- can add tests of this nature.

    AV-C already has such tests since years. See Anti-Phishing tests (which are all just URL blocking) or Real-World Tests (where URL blocking also plays a role).
