Re: Viral Trojan-Backdoor-Stinkbreath showing up in AB

No such file here. OK, good. Actually hoping that is the case...nothing widespread. Thank you for the reply. Have been noticing recent eNews about estimated 20,000 plus web-sites getting "infected" by nothing they did wrong...and people / website users who stop by pick up the viral infection too. Joe

Viral Trojan-Backdoor-Stinkbreath showing up in AB

Hoping this is the best area for it... Avant 11.7 B31 has been calling errors and been very slower than usual loading in pages... and in fact, the whole system was being slowed down... And two anti-virus apps, both up to date, are calling Trojan-Backdoor-Stinkbreath in C:\Program Files\Avant Browser...

Re: An update to my dearest users

I found the (unofficial) USB version of Orca here , but -runextra comand line option doesn't work yet, so I can't open more than one instance of Orca, therefore I can't use it, it's the last option I need to switch to Orca. Just to ask the question, as I too need to run a very limited range of othe...

Re: IDEA: Need a compare-Orca-and-Avant-features chart

Ahhh, MUCH better understood now.

Thank you statm1 for the Orca interface report and knowledge.

Even though Orca may not be as "interface changeable" as other Gecko-based browsers, it has a lot going for it.

Re: IDEA: Need a compare-Orca-and-Avant-features chart

I would have to agree.. A feature comparison wouldn't be a feature comparison if all we did was say which plugins/extensions worked in either Avant or Orca since there are only 2 differences between the two browsers. The engine and the textsize option. Yep, I have to agree, and I appreciate the fee...

Re: An update to my dearest users

About my previous Reply, above...

I stated:

"On second thought, item #3 is the imperative… without it there is no reason whatsoever to even produce a version 12."

Yes, a strong statement, but stop and think about it.... then lash out at me if you still wish to.

Re: An update to my dearest users

Simply, but it will NOT be simple.... In no order of importance for now: 1) Restore Text-size button 2) Restore groups 3) Tabs MUST be multi-threaded to stand any chance of AB 12 being usable 4) Give some attention to how JVM, JavaScript and Flash connect into and execute from AB 5) JavaScript execu...

A naggling question Orca Browser 1.1 RC 2

As of Orca Browser 1.1 RC 2 , is Orca having or will have all of the same features -- as much as possible, of course -- as does Avant 11.7 B21 ? That seems to be a question that no one knows about or can answer, save of course for Anderson, but surely there is no major secret if Orca will or will no...

Re: Similar Browser?

Just tried the above test comparing Avant b21 and Orca rc1, Avant as stated locks up until most of the pages have opened, but go Orca. If only the best of each browser could be combined into one.

IS latest? - Orca Browser 1.1 RC 1

Just to verify....

That the latest Orca as of now is Orca Browser 1.1 RC 1 ....

Looking both very interesting, and useful, and it may yet become the "preferred" way to have Avant Browser features, but present in a Gecko based engine browser.

Understood.

Appears that the Archive is up to date for now, as the "true" AB 11.7 SR-3 is indeed there and is working fine.
