Re: Multithread Avant

Whilst Avant sits there waiting for a page to complete loading, it also stalls everything else you are trying to do with your computer, specifically anything involving network transfers. This means it takes an age to save a file to the server, for example, and it makes streaming multimedia content r...

Re: Tab problems

As an addendum, I have tried for the third time this week to install the latest version (last time I did this I got all my tabs back, but I did have to log in to each and every Forum page I previously had open) and it seems I still have version 11.6 Build 11 ??? This is not intended as a gripe but i...

Re: Tab problems

I'm getting totally p****d off with this now. Avant lost all the little icons (yet again) leaving me to guess which sites the various tabs were from. So I selected "save all open pages and exit" only to find myself logged out of ALL the pages I had open. Bravo!!! So I restarted Avant again and it ha...

Re: Avant hang with some websites

http://media.winamp.com/ is another site which Avant hangs with, however you access the site (inc. http://www.winamp.com) :wtf: :silent:

Re: Tab problems

This look similar to the problems I am having here. My cousin also has the same issue as I do, think he's using XP SP2 (I'm using SP3). What happens in my case is the last active tab duplicates itself, rather than the one you've just closed.

Re: Avant hang with some websites

I get this as well. Some sites hang Avant and you just have to sit and wait for it to start working again :(

http://www.dogpile.com is another example. This search engine used to work fine on Avant.

Re: Avant keeps re-opening tabs when you close them

Is no-one else experiencing this problem? :wtf: Also I find it annoying when, having a lot of tabs open, viewing for example a search page on a Forum and clicking a number of links to open in the background, with the Middle Button, every so often the page you are actually ON (i.e. the Search Results...

Re: Internet Addication

I might be "addicted" but I have no intention of changing that ... I have a lot of friends online (some of whom I have actually met) and it is for me a lot more entertaining than staring at the telly (which after all is purely one-way communication) :D

Re: Google polishes a little Chrome

Has anyone read the Licence Agreement? Scary stuff ... yes they altered the main one but the link to the updated agreement still shows their gaff. Basically you give away rights to anything you upload using Chrome. I wouldn't touch it with a very long barge pole :D Avant does everything I want it to...

Re: Avant CLOSES tabs when momentarily frozen in heavy sites

I would suggest using CTRL + left or right arrows to switch tabs (assuming this works!) - I used to have a similar problem with an older version of Avant, whereby it would close tabs I wanted to select - and using this method avoided that.

Re: V11.6B11 Downloads leave blank window

It's the same for me - I assumed that was normal for Avant?

Re: all tab pages show in one and then freezes

I've had this problem as well. In my case it was caused by having a page open with a lot of animated images on it (the Smilie list on a forum I frequent) - occasionally even the selection on the Post Reply page would crash Avant! I usually have a lot of tabs open, but this occurred even with a lot l...

Avant keeps re-opening tabs when you close them

Hi, is anyone else having this issue? For every few tabs I close, Avant re-opens the last active tab, meaning you end up with duplicate pages. My cousin is having the same problem.
