Recently at Avanite we released version 4.5 of our web browser optimization and control product – WebData Control. While in many ways this is an update to 4.4, there are important updates and it’s worth recapping the key features as well as what’s changed.
Avanite started with a vision of optimizing web browser behavior to improve user experience, and to reduce the cost of managing the hardware and software used to access web sites and applications. As we have engaged with customers in the last few years, we have expanded this concept into Browser Agility, the idea of making it possible for organizations to seamlessly blend and migrate between different web browsers with a consistent user experience. Version 4.5 delivers on this concept in a number of ways…
Many users are forced to use multiple web browsers for a variety of reasons: application compatibility, performance, security, vendor support, and so on. They might use Chrome for general browsing, Internet Explorer for some legacy web apps and internal sites that rely on ActiveX plug-ins, then Edge for certain secure sites to appease the CISO. As if switching windows wasn’t inconvenient enough, user productivity is further reduced when they have to spend time copying settings and preferences between different browsers.
Avanite reduces this burden by synchronizing Favorites between browsers, and in each release of WebData Control it has taken another bite out of this surprisingly tough technical challenge! This feature has reached a new level of maturity:

Following enthusiastic customer feedback, in version 4.5 this feature has been enhanced to cover more scenarios and provide an even smoother user experience:
Automated Best Practice Configuration of WebData Control through Group Policy
Updates for Windows 10 and Web Browser versions
Finally, as you would expect with any version update, Avanite has updated WebData Control’s core functionality for the latest web browser and Windows 10 versions:
