It is slightly less, as I see it, than AVG. Where the difference between the two was evident, at least on my computer, was the time it took each to do a complete scan, and the amount of memory each took up simply running in the background. In both of these areas, Avast seemed to be much slower, and to take up a lot more operating resources.
Since both are free downloads, you might want to give each of these a try. You may find one easier to use, or faster than the other (speed may very well depend on how you have your HD(s) configured or the amount of space used).
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.
