Re: Site doesn't display correctly using firefox engine

I see nothing has changed and that Anderson is still ignoring the wants and needs of the users.

Re: Interesting statistics

Can you not just switch out the gecko folders? Or did those old builds include the engine in some other way? I was able to swap the gecko folder with a newer version (then next version of gecko after the one included in build 23) one time with Avant 2013 build 23, but the gecko versions included wi...

Re: Microsoft realized their mistakes...

First off all stop saying that I do not know what I'm talking about! None of the Firefox, IE, and Chrome extensions that are intended to modify or add to the Firefox, IE, or Chrome user interface work with Avant, because Avant doesn't use the user interfaces from these browsers -- it has its own (i...

Re: Microsoft realized their mistakes...

My opinion is that everyone that complains of the functions of AB ...then you have not scared the surface of this browser yet. keza, you don't have any problem with features/functions because you never used Avant before they were removed, so you don't even know what they were. None of the Firefox, ...

Re: Microsoft realized their mistakes...

Why only focus on the missing features, while Avant lacks the basic stability and functions so poorly? I still use Avant 2013 build 23, and I have been using it since Anderson released it. It IS buggy, but not so buggy that I can't use it or that I'd be willing to use any of the nearly useless vers...

Re: Microsoft realized their mistakes...

You have 1960 post, so that is too much to go throw. Can you give a few examples what AB has thrown away? I cannot imagine which functions where so important in AB? It has all the functions I need and I'm not such a simple person in these matters because I want something good and practical and that...

Re: Microsoft realized their mistakes...

What do you want then? I have experience with many browsers and I do not know what's missing in AB except the speed when opening more pages at once? I want all the features and user-interface capabilities that Avant had before they were ripped out and thrown away. There are many things that Avant u...

Re: Microsoft realized their mistakes...

AB is good when you will have time to tune it to your needs. I have AB in 'Crystal' skin with the FF engine. Maybe you give this a try? And the features and options of AB are more than in FF and IE. See under the AB settings and under the settings of FF under Settings-> Mozilla Firefox-> options. T...

Re: Microsoft realized their mistakes...

And how does using the old skins restore the missing features and options? How does using the old skins move the sidebar back to the left side where it belongs? The answer is, it doesn't. I'm not interested in partial fixes and workarounds that don't do anything to resolve the underlying problem -- ...

Microsoft realized their mistakes...

Even huge, all-powerful Microsoft realized they'd really screwed the pooch with Windows 8, so they made changes in Windows 8.1 so users who prefer the desktop and Start menu over the ugly and inefficient "Modern" user interface don't have to put up with it anymore. 8.1 is even smart enough to recogn...

Re: Top Left AVANT window caption is gone!

What enhancements are you referring to? I see a lot of changes from Avant 2012, but I wouldn't call any of them enhancements. In fact, they're just the opposite.

Here it is http://www.lunascape.tv/. I haven't tried it with a lot of open tabs yet, so it'll be interesting to see what you find out.

Re: but going backward

what--in your expert opinion--would be the best browser to switch to? Thanks for the compliment, but I'm not an expert. That said, I've been playing with Lunascape again for the last week or so. I'd tried it a couple of times before, but I always came back to Avant (until build 100, that is). Like ...

Re: download setup speed

I just downloaded build 116 asetup.exe to test the speed. It came down at just under 5 mbps on my 6 mbps connection, which is reasonably close to the speed I usually see for downloads.

Oracle Java fails at security in new and creative ways

Microsoft reports IE zero-day attacks

All versions of Internet Explorer are vulnerable to remote code execution through a memory corruption bug. Attacks are currently being conducted with exploits that work on IE8 and IE9.

Re: Java security problems continue to worsen

The fact that Java appears to be the primary attack vector is what I was referring to. History has shown us that yet to be found security vulnerabilities are probably lurking in all software. Since the black-hat hackers are concentrating more on Java than any other commonly used software, it's a sur...

No, the time stamps on the posts won't be changed retroactively. If the time is correct in the User Control Panel and on current posts, you're good to go.
