    Yeah I like Avast detection rate. Among all the other great stuff that it does. The only thing that kills it for me is the slight lag from the web shield. I don't know if its from using sandboxie with it or what. Kind of annoying to me.

    Have you tested v8 yet, to see if those problems still exist?

    I still get the lag a little bit. Mostly when watching video's on youtube. I also get it when opening picture intensive websites. Not really sure why. Might also have to do with K9 web filter. Could be slowing things down.

    I understand what you are saying m00nbl00d, I agree, if SBIE was as widely used as Chrome (for example) there would be more bad guys trying to break the sandbox than there is now. But all I care is what SBIE is doing for me now. If I would worry about things that might never happen or if they will ever happen would be years from now, I ll be a very unhappy guy. I never look ahead into the future longer than three or four months.

    For now, SBIE is great, you should use it more and forget about the future. Think about what I am going to say. You have been talking about the same things that you wrote in your post ever since I know you. Has anything changed this past two and a half years? Is SBIE protection weaker now than it was then? I think the answer is no and I could argue that is better now than when I started using the sandbox four years ago. I honestly believe the sandbox is stronger and better now than it was then.

    "I'm glad Sandboxie isn't widely used", I totally disagree with that statement. I wish SBIE was widely used. In my case, using SBIE and learning just basic security stuff changed my internet and computer experience for the better. Whenever I turn off my computer, I know is clean, I never doubt or have to run a quick scan "because maybe something escaped the sandbox". Thoughts like that never come across my head and I would be very happy if more people felt that way.

    It could very well be K9, when I used it, it slowed down thing's considerably.

    I understand what you're saying, and I do agree. But, I have to question myself how much could one guy do in order to keep his application patched and compatibility issues fixed at the "same time", should Sandboxie be as widely used as Google Chrome (as an example).

    Either he would hire some developers or I just don't see how he could promptly fix every major security bug found in Sandboxie. Which is why I say, based on the fact Sandboxie is developed just by one guy, that I'm glad it isn't as widely used as it could be.
