Hi Laserwraith. Incorporated (into Dragon not CIS) ad-blocker would probably use less memory than a third party ad-blocker.
If it was built into Dragon and not CIS it would only use memory when browser is open. I know Comodo do focus on security, but if they want Dragon to be competitive an add-blocker would be a bonus. Half decent add-blockers memory use is minor compared to the OS and browsers. Kind regards.

The best thing to do is just make Dragon compatible with Chrome's extensions, if it isn't already.

It is my view that Comodo shouldn't waste money on something that is already available and free.

Most of them are compatible. For a while there, Dragon was lagging quite a bit behind the Chrome releases so many extensions required a higher version of the browser.

Melih has expressed interest in adding AdBlock Plus for Chrome to the default installation of Dragon.

Lol...it's because Comodo can and did make something better than the other free antiviruses.  Partly because they don't just use AVs, but they use HIPs and a good firewall.

However...I don't see anything new Comodo can offer to the ad-blocking sphere.  Adblock Plus can block most of those tempting ads, and the best thing is for the parents to tell the kids not to enter personal info anywhere on the web, without permission ("or the scary bad guys will hack your computer and not let you play games").

Comodo Internet Security is good at what it does because not much else is similar and free (and not many paid programs are similar either).  BUT...guess what?!...there are tons of ad-blocking programs.  Some don't work, some semi-work, and some work better than Comodo can hope to achieve in 6 months (probably).


And BTW...ever heard of netbooks and laptops? While the regular PCs often come with 4GB of RAM, many lower-end laptops don't.  And...guess what?!...some people have not bought a new computer in a few years, and are stuck with 2-3GB and 32 bit Windows.

Reading that the adblocking belong to the browser and would only get implemented into Comodo Dragon:

What about ads in msn,skype or the 7800 other apps that are bombed with ads? :/
