Re: Why has Avant Browser gotten SLOW??

I'm rather late to this discussion ... but I've had the same problem. I've always been loathe to use Firefox. For 3 or 4 years, I've used Avant, preferring its native features and usability ... and especially the better tabs. But the browser slowness (and the developers' lack of responsiveness to th...

Re: What happened to Avant?

I have to agree that Avant seems to run worse now than anytime in the last many years that I have used it. I hope the new version comes out soon. At first, I switched to Firefox this week just for the speed. But after using it for several days, I have to say that FF blows Avant away completely. Tot...

Re: What happened to Avant?

So I installed IE 8. It helped a bit. Now I can open 6 or 7 new tabs in Avant before the browser "hangs", instead of just 3 tabs. But Firefox has this completely outclassed. I opened an ebay search with 50 items on the first search page. I did the "open in new tab" for item after item after item. I ...

Re: What happened to Avant?

In most cases the memory leaks & crashes in Avant are caused by incompatible IE addons such as toolbars & BHOs. (Look at Tools>Avant Browser Options...>Add-ons) Indeed. Discovered that long ago, so I don't allow toolbars or add-ons. Same goes for Windows Explorer. Also, IE8 engine is faster than IE...

Re: An update to my dearest users

Our next major project will be focusing on Avant 12.0 ! Please let us know if there is anything else you would like to see us improve in the new version by replying to this post. My suggestion .... quit worrying about features, and instead work to improve the speed. Avant has become so slow that I'...

What happened to Avant?

This used to be the best browser in town. Better than Firefox. Better than IE. But lately (for the last year or so) it's been all downhill. - SLOW SLOW SLOW. That used to be Firefox's problem. But those guys managed to improve speed, while Avant keeps getting slower. - MEMORY LEAKS ... with a dozen ...

Re: An update to my dearest users

What's up with the new versions (v11)? The browser is slow, consumes massive resources, and is often unusable. I used to be able to open dozens of browser tabs at once. It would take time to load them all, but everything was accessible. Tabs responded, buttons and menus worked. No problems. Now (v11...
