Re: Avant Browser 8.01 Build 112

If you followed the link to downoad.com and downloaded from there, you should get build 112 - that is what I got.  Are you sure you don't have an old absetup version on your systme that is being mixed up with the new one?

Re: Avant Browser 8.01 Build 112

yes that is the point - right now you go to Avantbrowser.com, and you are redirected to Download.com which says you are getting 108 although you actually get 112.  If you didn't read carefully at Avantbrowser.com you would think something is screwy (but who among us would not read carefully? right.....

bug reports

I just read the Avant locks up thread (3 pages, BruceKrymow, Startracker, Bati, PatG etc from yesterday).  A very long thread that has resulted in annoyance on 3 sides I think, if I read it correctly.  I also notice that frequently bug reports are confused, and short on detail - it will take 2 or 3 ...

Re: Avant Browser 8.01 Build 112

the number is wrong at Download.com but the build you get is 112.  Just download and install then check the version to make sure it is build 112.

Re: Add "OpenRecent" toolbar button

I agree - in fact I think there ought to be buttons for every menu function and the option to show/hide the main menu (I have said this elsewhere - but I couldn't resist the opportunity to repeat myself)

Re: put the Yahoo bar back

I know about the Google problems - I had them. Today was the first day I tried the Yahoo bar, and it worked (in that it didnt' crash the program as the Google bar did).  Oh well, I will just use the built in search bar for now, and hope Anderson gets the Yahoo bar working soon - but I am on Win 98 r...

Re: Focus of displayed page,,

You are right, Bati - when I middle click on a link it opens in the background, because I have Tools - Avant Browser Options - New Window - Always create a new window for a popup page in the background checked. But I have favorites, and all the others with it just above, checked to open new pages.  ...

I am on Win 98 and the Yahoo bar worked fine for me, the Google bar did not.  I liked having the Yahoo bar available, it was not incompatible on my system.

Re: Focus of displayed page,,

I was about to give a smart-assed remark about how one should check the Avant options before asking how to do something simple - but I tried to get a new page, a favorite, to open in the background.  It didn't.  I have open new page checked for all 4 options allowed and open new popup window in the ...

Avant and memory problems

There are a lot of posts on the forum about avant using huge amounts of memory, using the CPU at 90-100%, and hanging on exit. It seems to me, admittedly based on little fact, that Avant, an interface between the user and the IE core and Windows, is unlikely to be the real problem (I say little fact...

Re: I'm here wondering

since we are talking about skins, I wouldn't think they slow the computer down once they are loaded, but some of them are huge, at 800k+ and some quite small at 100k or so, so on a machine with limited RAM, 32 M, that is a bit of an issue. I wonder why there is such a difference in the size of skin ...
