Tried latest Avant but 2013 Build 23 works better for me

I was concerned that I might be missing something, so finally upgraded to the Avant January 6, 2014 Build, but it just hung many times, and does not seem robust. Especially when using AutoFill. When I go to my local utility websites in Arizona here (to pay my bills), and try to use AutoFill I just g...

Thank you very much for putting up with me spouting off my opinions. ha. The truth is I appreciate Avant so much, and use it more than any other browser, and have for several years now.

Re: How do I get rid of this Download Video box?

Found my answer to this question under Miscellaneous in the Avant options. Here I'd been trying for weeks to figure out which add-on was responsible. ha. Thank you for your time.

Avant skin choices need improvement

I have stuck with an older 2013 edition of Avant and from time to time I download the latest Avant and fully explore it to see if I am missing anything. I feel that the skin choices are not that good at all. If the skin maker could become compatible with the newer versions one could make their own s...

How do I get rid of this Download Video box?

While at YouTube and other video sites, this Download Video(s) box is covering information in the upper right corner. I can't figure out how to remove it. Any suggestions?

Avant's Skin Situation

I have a simple skin that I like a lot that I made with the Avant skin maker a long time a go and have been using it through several different versions for well over a year now. I notice that my skin won't work with the latest Avant so I stick with the Avant 2013 Build 23. I wanted to try my favorit...

Why does Avant update itself when not told to?

I always have Avant's auto updating turned off, but then months later I'll open it up and Avant has been updated, all my configurations are gone. It's frustrating because that means a couple hours of work to get Avant back the way I want it. At first I was relieved to see that all my Autofills were ...

Re: Googe search window disapears

Are you really still using Avant 11.7 build 23, like it says in your forum profile? That's an ancient version (3-1/2 years old). Updating might solve your problem. No, I'm using the latest Avant version. I'd like to update that information, but do not see how. Here http://forum.avantbrowser.com/ucp...

Googe search window disapears

A strange problem, my Google search window disappears on my Google page. Please see attached. Anyone else having this problem? This happens only with Avant. I do not have scripts or anything disabled. Thank you for any help.

Chrome Rendering Engine can't save link to Desktop?

For putting a link on my desktop with IE, I always used IE's "Send Shorcut to Desktop" option. With Avant I've had the right-click "Create Shortcut" option which works as well, and with the Firefox engine I use the "Create Dskcut" add on, but with the Chrome engine I see no option for sending a link...

Re: Does one rendering engine work better than the other two

Personally, I feel single process rendering mode like firefox engine saves memory, while multi-process rendering mode like chrome engine wastes memery. I don't like chrome itself either. Everytime I run it, my machine turns slower and slower even with only 2 tabs open. I was a big Orca fan, makes s...

Re: Can Avant block Yahoo Email Ads?

Did you check the Tools>Disable Flash Animations? Thank you, Tinmann57, yes, I've use that option, and it is helpful, but then it has to be changed back for regular web surfing. The Web Mail Blocker add-on is working like a charm. I just wonder how long till they figure out a way to override it.

Does one rendering engine work better than the other two?

I'm using the Avant Ultimate version and am wondering if one rendering engine works better and smoother than the other two, or if there's no noticeable difference between them.
