[Suggestion] Easy way to create search shortcuts

It'll be great if we could right-click on a search field on a web page and click on "Create Search" to have that search engine added to the Avant Browser's "Quick Search" list. This is easier than adding the search engine manually. Screenshot: http://i12.photobucket.com/albums/a230/jason_dal/create_...

[Request] Keyboard Shortcut to hide/show Avant

If I click on the system tray icon of Avant, I will be able to toggle between hide and show of the browser, right? It'll be nice to associate a keyboard shortcut to this option as well.

[Suggestion] Color-Code the Tabs

I think it might be a good idea to make it possible to color-code the tabs in Avant. The tabs opened from the same web site should be assigned the same color by default. The users should also be given the freedom to assign a color to any tab they want, so that they could group the tabs in their own ...

[Suggestion] Add "Download More Skins" Option

I believe there are some Avant users who have never visited the homepage of Avant Browser and don't know where to get the third-party skins for Avant. Therefore, I think it is necessary to put a "Download more skins" option under the "Tools --> Skins" menu. This option will direct the users to the A...

[Suggestion] Retry After Showing the Error Page

When Avant is experiencing difficulty opening a web page, it shows me an error page, right? Is it possible to make Avant able to automatically reload this URL every 10 seconds after the error page is displayed? This way I could just leave the tab opened and, who knows, the page might be loaded after...

[Suggestion] Display News Headlines on Status Bar

I think it might be a good idea to make Avant able to display news headlines on the status bar when it is idle (when you are neither loading a web page nor placing your mouse cursor over a link). The news headlines should be of course taken from feeds. The users should be able to choose which feed t...

The definition of Avant is that it is a feature-rich and versatile IE front end. And where did you find this defintion? The only thing I could find is Avant Browser, an upgrade to Internet Explorer. Avant Browser is a fast, stable, user-friendly, versatile multi-window browser. I guess you could in...

And others would prefer a simpler browser. One that is not filled with many options and features. Then Avant browser is not for those people. They could all go back to using IE 1.0, which has the minimum number of features among all browsers. The definition of Avant is that it is a feature-rich and...

1. You can scroll at angles using the middle button. Unlike Acrobat, most web pages format themselves to fit your screen. Zoom in 400% and try it. 2. The speed of the scroll depends on how you move the mouse, correct? The middle click scroll is the same way. 3. Clicking the middle button will immed...

What exactly is the difference between this and clicking the middle button to scroll now? I don't understand. The advantages of using this little "hand" tool over middle button scrolling are: 1. You could not only scroll up, down, left or right, but also in 45 degree angles. 2. It is easy to contro...

[Suggestion] A Central Search Engine in Avant

I think Avant could be made more powerful and integral by making the address bar the ultimate central search engine that brings you the search results from everywhere inside the browser. After you type a keyword in the address field, the drop-down list displays matching items found from history, fav...

[Suggestion] "Hand" tool for scrolling web pages

http://tinypic.com/ae5swm.jpg I like the little "hand tool" which I could use to scroll a PDF document in Adobe Acrobat Reader. I think Avant could adopt it as a tool for easy scrolling of web pages. This hand tool in Avant could be activated by pressing "ctrl+h" (or another more suitable keyboard ...

The bookmarks under the "favorites" menu are already your own favorites you have created yourself. "Top ten favorites" is diffenrent because it dynamically upddates itself to reveal your "real" favorites based on statistics.

[Suggestion] Top Ten Favorites

I think it might be a good idea to include a "Top ten favorites" menu which lists the top ten web pages/sites that the user visits most frequently. This list is useful because it is able to dynamically update itself to suit the user's habit and thus provides a quick way to access the sites you most ...
