I’d like to switch from Windows to a free desktop-oriented OS. I was thinking of TrueOS. I know it is secure as built on top of FreeBSD but I wonder how to secure web browsing activities (which are very dependent on the user actions, the browsers’ own security and the dangerousness level of the web sites).
First solution would be to install an anti-virus solution with realtime protection but there are none (I heard about ClamAV which is an on-demand scanner). I don’t know why because there used to be decent ones from Kaspersky or BitDefender and nowadays some are available for GNU/Linux like the ones from ESET or DrWeb.
A second solution could be to run the web browser in a jail/sandbox. From what I understood, it seems to be a good alternative to the anti-virus if everything is trashed at the end but it doesn’t seem to be easy to set for someone like me (Running firefox in a jail).
Lastly, I hearded about solutions sold in the Internet and consisting in running the browser on a remote box (I don’t know if I am allowed to put a link but I was thinking of turbo[dot]net as an example) but I don’t know if some run on a BSD system.
I’m looking for any advice that can be easily implemented for someone coming from Windows.
Thanks in advance.
