    I am using this with Firefox for few days now, I think I will keep it as I do a lot of web search.

    However, it uses around 300mb of Virutal Memory, is that a bad thing? At first, Firefox seems a bit sluggish but it seemed fine now, just a bit slow to start up.

    Not that Mac doesn't need it but need to be just be wary of dodgy sites that can steal your cookies with login details.

    Is anyone else using it?

    I'm trying it out. Seems alright. It tells me sometimes if i'm about to enter a shady website. And sometimes it bounces up and down in the dock, but doesn't tell me why. I hate that because I have no idea why the hell it's doing that.

    Recently i've noticed just about everything on the mac is "skipping" every now and then. When I scroll up or down on webpages, click links, and video skips and sometimes freezes completely. I dunno if it's the AVG program or not, but it wouldn't hurt ruling it out.
