AVG Brings Link Scanner Malware Detector to the Mac

AVG, a company which offers antivirus facility to PC users, is introducing a free link checker for Mac.

AVG Technologies prepares to reveal AVG Link Scanner’s Mac version, a free to download tool which scans website links for possible threats. According to AVG, this Link Scanner application verifies web pages in quick-time, and sends warning message to users if software detects any website which could cause possible problems.

“Every time, you click on any of the links at any given time, you’re processing data on Internet, we scan all of them, searching for malware and phishing efforts,” said J.R. Smith, the CEO of AVG.

The software of AVG doesn’t rely heavily on blacklisted sites which flagged for possible unsafe content. The AVG application makes use of the real-time checking to give alert to users for possibly problematical sites. The company depends a great deal on large user pool with around tens of millions users, according to AVG, to make sure, users are doing surfing for securing Web pages.

Up till now, Mac users lived easy and viruses and malware free life because the malware creators’ main focus was to attack more commonly used platforms. But now, the figures are changed and the Mac included in more commonly used systems, because of development of both Apple’s mobile iOS and OS X. But the genuine threat comes through the development of social networking sites which amplify the risk of web surfers who could become victim to phishing as well as other hateful attacks.

“We aren’t screaming that Macs are susceptible,” said Smith. He also added that like any other platform, the Mac Operating System has its own weaknesses. Smith also continues by adding that, threats caused by attacks through social networking terrorize users despite the consequences of platform. “We’re defending people from themselves in some cases.”

After looking at the increasing importance of abbreviated URLs, Smith said, Savvy Web users generally, capable of looking at any URL and detect possible phishing attempt if any; condensed URLs create it harder to perform. “You can’t spot [the complete URL],” Smith added. “You can’t be the policeman of your own.”

AVG Link Scanner’s free download is specially made for Mac Operating System X 10.5 as well as 10.6. It mainly runs on Apple’s newly released Web browser version 5, Mozilla Firefox‘s 3.x and later version and Safari’s 3.x and later version.

HTML5- A New Venture into Apps Design

Hypertext Markup language standard which has been used for constructing web pages has shaped its latest version known as HTML 5. Since its previous versions are not successful for a decade, some of the conscious developers have created new features like 2D Graphics, built-in video etc. in HTML 5. HTML 5 is somewhat imprecise, however it is much convenient than HTML.

HTML 5 which is a little bit complex can be easily managed only by a few talented programmers. This has created a success for the marketing departments. They have started to develop tasteful packages that can make “HTML 5” comprehensible.

Features

Apple’s launch of Safari 5 has given a crystal clear action that HTML 5 has been snatched from the developers by the marketing folks. Apple has created a HTML 5 demo site which was created with most up-to-date web standards supported by Safari. Hence it has obstructed other browsers from it. You’ll be welcomed to download Safari which is free for PC and Mac. It will take just a few minutes. Apple doesn’t say that HTML 5 can’t be viewed by other browsers. But it is marketing Safari.

Christopher Blizzard, Mozilla’s evangelist has criticized that Apple’s messaging is not conveying their love since they are blocking the other browsers from their demo site and it is a intellectually dishonest matter. Bruce Lawson touting HTML 5 at Opera have also criticized the dishonesty of Apple.

On seeing the message “You’ll need to download Safari to view the demo” you may think that other browsers are not supporting it. But it is not true. It’s the trick played by Apple simply to market Safari. If you want to view the demos without the aid of Safari, a developer version of Apple’s HTML5 demo site will be useful for you.  Apple’s demo is creating a image that the marketers have snatched the label of HTML5. But not all of its demonstrations are really of HTML 5.

Trend

Some of the following Web changes are not a part of HTML 5. Geolocation uses only HTML and not HTML 5 which helps the user to enter his physical location to a website. Only Microsoft IE9 has made Scalable Vector Graphics standard more relevant and only Apple has made the Cascading Style Sheets Standard more relevant.

Not all Web technologies have the fortune of universal buy-in.  Though IndexedDB allows the Web applications to accumulate data locally on a computer, Apple is using a different technology for it. Even though for 3D graphics on the Web, some prefer WebGL, Microsoft has not consent with it. While Web M from Google is preferred by Opera, Google and Mozilla, Microsoft and Apple prefer H.264. Adobe Systems Flash has been functioning as a mock-up for a lot of happenings with Web standards.

HTML 5 fans are now enthusiastic to make it popular.  Apple is now trying to make an impact on the world by means of HTML 5.
