New Feature - An enhancement to a product that the customer likes and/or can use.

Bloatware – An enhancement to a product the customer does not like or cannot use.

Streamlined installation - This is kind of an annual. Vendors can announce this every year.

Rescue mode – Different vendors have different spins on implementing this.

Online backup – This has become a checklist feature. It’s either included with the product, with more memory available for a few dollars more, or is introduced as a separate (free) product that can be upgraded.

The usual suspects, McAfee, Trend Micro, Panda, Avast, Avira, AVG Technologies, Webroot, Kaspersky, G Data, F-Secure, eScan, among others, will be announcing their betas over the coming months.
