v3 runs independent from your browser so there is no longer a need for an extension.

Congratulations with the release.

Could you add Otter browser to the list of supported browsers? It's a project aiming to recreate classic Opera (12.x) UI using Qt5.

Unfortunately the problem with upsetting WMIPrvSE.exe has returned. :-\ It forced me to return to v3.0.0.75 on my netbook. On my netbook it uses easily up to 50% of CPU cycles with incidental peaks as high as 72%. It runs on Intel Atom CPU with Intel 945 chipset on Windows 8.1 x86. On my desktop computer it uses between 8-15% of CPU cycles. It runs Windows 8.1 x64 on a quad core AMD Phenom II 925. I will return to 3.0.0.75 on my desktop also.

It is not supporting filtering on https pages yet. Is there an ETA for this?

In a time where more and more websites are going over to https and where we strive to transfer the web over to https, Comodo still has two products (Web Filter & PrivDog) that only work with http?! I'm sorry but what? Not filtering https sites is essentially rendering the protections useless, what's more surprising is that they went from extensions that supported http and https to an external application that only supports http? Sure it now works with never versions of Chrome but it is still a giant step back regardless.

I believe https filtering should be the main priority; if it turns out that it's impossible to support, then you've got a giant problem because that renders your software irrelevant.

I see that Comodo is continuing on the course of releasing their products as finished releases before they could be considered that, mainly the lack of https filtering is the reason why I say that, I don't believe PrivDog can ever be considered complete until it filters https pages.

Comodo, you need to figure out HTTPS filtering for your products, otherwise they soon won't hold any relevance, honestly it doesn't have any relevance today with the amount of sites using https but its usage will only increase in the future. Personally I believe that https filtering should have been one of the first things you looked into when developing this application, what if you've done all this work and then come to the conclusion that you simply can't filter https sites as an external application? Hopefully you'll figure it out but it's just surprising if not baffling to see that such an important part is missing from a "final" release.

Hi yigido!
you can use PrivDog plugin and last release version.
you can switch from the extension mode to driver mode. Just disable the extension (in the browser). Reopen the browser. The driver will automatically detect it.  If you want to go back to the plug-in you need to enable it and reopen the browser.

thank you for the feedback! :)

Hi Sanya,

The product does have HTTPS filtering. This was number one on my list of essential features for the product.

Which browser and OS are you using?

Could you give your system a reboot to ensure all browser processes have been restarted to allow PrivDog to filter the HTTPS traffic properly?

Shane.

Hi Eric,

HTTPS filtering is complicated because the traffic is encrypted within a fully authenticated PKI system.  We do have it, a restart should solve this for you.

Could you PM me your email address and I'll work directly with you to support your Opera and resolve the other issues?

Shane.
