AVG Technologies AVG Security Toolbar is included in the company's latest range of security software, as a standalone application, and as a third party offer included in the installer of software such as Tune Up Ztilities, Slim Cleaner or Power Iso.
Yesterday's release of AVG Antivirus Free 2013 included the AVG Security Toolbar as an offer, and if you did not select custom installation, you'd end up with the toolbar in Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox. It ships with a link scanner that displays security information about websites. The toolbar itself offers search, weather information, a link to a speedtest and other features that are not really related to security.
