Re: Avant Browser 11.6 build 2 [BETA]

How many more people would Anderson have pleased by implementing the long asked for changes INSTEAD of the download manager. I can't even remember an overwhelming request for a download manager at all. A great shame. Amen. I still occasionally check on AB's development but as a looooong time user a...

Re: Faded Glory Skin for 11.5.20?

Give this a try: faded-glory-update.skn faded-glory.jpg Faded Glory is a patriotic background theme for Avant's version 10.1 browser. Deep darkish blue progress bar, deep red active tab font color, along with a crystal aqua blue hover By Eva 71 Sara :D Works like a charm. Excellent!! Thank you! =D>

Faded Glory Skin for 11.5.20?

Does anyone have it? My Avant, though not used as often as it used to be, looks naked without it?

A few requests

1. Please make AB compatible with the Imageshack.us toolbar and context menu tool. 2. Put the "groups" back on the toolbar and return the "add to group" link to the context menu for each tab. 3. Put the tab menu buttons back on top & get them off of the tabs bars. 4. Stop the crazy way the tabs move...

Re: Memory usage/leak (version 11.0 build 5)

I noticed that if I disable my internet connection, even with Avant closed, it starts using lot of memory. Its easy to notice since even on idle my laptop fans all go alive and each time I check the processes its avant. Unistalled Avant and realised that the source of the problem is IE7. If I switc...

Odd tab opens at startup

When I open 11.5 b11 a tab opens with "http://-helper/ in the address bar.

It's not that big a deal but it's new with b11 & it's odd so I thought I would report it.

Using the old Avant Tip , I'd check to see if you still have a groups.dat file in the old Avant App Data folder. If you do, you can then use abfan123 's Groups2Bookmarks utility to convert that file. Thank you. I have to convert each group to captor files one at a time (!!)so it's slooooow but it w...

Re: hornakapopolis 9400

When Avant 11.0 ran for the first time, it should have automatically imported your IE Favorites and your Groups from Version 10 and below into its new Bookmarks system, creating a folder for the Groups. If not, try going to File -> Import -> Groups from the Old Version of Avant Browser to import yo...

Help recovering bookmarks & groups, please

When v11 came out I installed it new rather than upgrading (the reason isn't important). I'm now running 11.5 b11 and would like to combine the bookmarks & groups but I can't figure out how to do it. The files seem to be different formats starting w/ version 11.

Can anyone help?

Re: Memory usage/leak (version 11.0 build 5)

I have 20 tabs open, all but one is a static page (the one is a Java-based NWS radar) and Avant is using 301,176K of memory. That is absolutely ridiculous. 11.5 build 11, just upgraded yesterday. XP SP2 w/ 2GB RAM. I've been a loyal user of Avant for years and it's always been a memory hog but this ...

I would agree with you if IE or Firefox had the same problems. They don't.

There's workaround for this. Minimize Avant for a second if you feel it's running slow and restore/maximize it again. Avant will get rid of unnecessary memory usage! What ya people say??? Holy ****! That worked! At least for now. Not a fix to the memory problems but, like you said, a workaround. Th...

I REALLY hate the new position of this buttons. Keep trying to close tabs in upper right corner (I show open tabs at the bottom) and everytime I risk to close whole Avant instead.

I did an update using the current default icons and the "Crystal" visual style. I used the Bitmap Extractor.
