Re: High CPU and Memory use -- is it normal?

High CPU just happened to me with Public Preview 1. Restarted Avant and seems fine again, will monitor this session to see if/when it goes crazy.

Thanks for the advice, just updated my post -- Avant FP build 2. As for Google toolbar, I've run through them all with similar results. I like version 3.0.131.0 best even though the spellchecker doesnt work right. I'm going to play around with it more since the toolbar is the only foreign element I ...

High CPU and Memory use -- is it normal?

This has been happening to me for a while and I can't seem to pinpoint the trouble. My computer has been slowing down tremendously after using the newer versions of Avant, including the most recent. I recently decided to upgrade and build a new computer system. I did a fresh install of windows, with...

Same here. CPU and memory use gradually goes way up until I shutdown and restart Avant.

Re: little icons on tabs disappear

Thanks. I'll look into this. What makes this even more strange is I have CCleaner and Avant on my laptop as well but those icons are not deleted after running the cleaner on my laptop. I'll have to do some comparing...

Re: little icons on tabs disappear

I FIGURED IT OUT... I have the program CCleaner, and I typically use it when I clean my recycle bin (it's a right click option to "run ccleaner"). After I run it, the small icons on the tabs disappear (you have to change windows from Avant to another back to Avant and they vanish -- or from your des...

Re: little icons on tabs disappear

Yes, it's very random. But it hasn't changed since the last restart of Avant when I made those screencaps, so who knows. I'm going to keep an eye on it though to see if I can spot when/if they change.

little icons on tabs disappear

I apologize if this has been reported, but for some reason the little icons on each of the tabs of my Avant Browser (beta 11, but has happened in previous recent betas as well) disappeared and turned into standard IE icons. I restarted Avant and they came back. Weird... Here's a random group of site...

Re: Avant Browser 11.0 Beta 4

Random question about "Comact Style"... is there a way to customize this so the "File... Edit.. View... etc..." menu is on the top left instead of the right side?

Just curious.

Thanks for the new betas!

Re: Which Style Tabs Do You Like Best?

Do you guys think the tabs will be different in the new upcoming version of Avant? I am using v10.1b40 because it seems to work better than the newer versions (for me).

Re: 10.2 Build 52 discussion.

I've tried out the newer versions but always end up going back to 10.1 build 40. I kept closing tabs inadvertently with the newer builds. I usually just double click a tab to close it, no real need for the "x" on the tab for me. One good thing about 10.1 build 40 is that latest version (beta) of goo...

So far, it's very fast! I agree with previous posters. I have closed many tabs inadvertently by hitting the "x" on the tab. Also, the tabs are very bulky and taking more space than previous version. Also, google toolbar spellcheck doesn't work properly, but it didn't work in the previous version eit...

I notice the spell check in the google toolbar does not work correctly in Avant (using a version 3 of toolbar right now). It will check for corrections, but will not allow me to see possible corrections and fix them.

Is the spell check working in the newer v4?

Tried it, but not luck for me. Very weird. Unless I'm misunderstanding what the "titlebar" close is? Is it simply the "x" in the top right with each individual tab?

The Avant tab window always opens to a large rectangle no matter what I do. Like I said, works fine in standard IE.

In additon to my above inquiry, I also notice you can't control the size of a window when it opens in a new tab in Avant. In regular IE, you can open a window, resize to your liking, and close. Then IE will always open a window to that size it was when it was closed previously. However I can't seem ...

Question about "Open all links in this page..."

Hello, I am trying to open all links on a given page (some are the same links). I notice Avant only opens one page per link and does not open every single link (the text describing a link may be different, but link is the same). Is there a way in Avant (or even another program) that would open every...

This is a weird bug, just want to report it happened to me. Weird thing is, when I hit the space in the google toolbar, Avant jumps to another tab, always Amazon.com! I moved the Amazon tab around, and it still always jumped to that tab. So I closed the Amazon tab, and the bug went away. I opened Am...

Not sure if this is just my computer, but this could be a small bug, it might have even been fixed already.
