Re: A tarnished reputation

WHAT ? !! People get in trouble and possibly banned for expressing frustrations around here ? ! ! I've been away too long. That can't be. I don't believe it. That would be communist ! And seriously, I don't know what's going on. I switched my operating system from Vista to Windows 7 back in February...

Re: Avant Exodus

Definitely a long, but interesting dissertation. There is a budding movement, you might call it, to have Anderson and the SlimBrowser people meet, with the base idea being combining Avant and SlimBrowser positives, and coming up with a new browsing or a single browsing product. Could be interesting...

Re: Musings about Avant Browser

I envy people who say they don't have stability issues with Avant. There have been posts by several. I haven't had a stable experience since I think 11.0.46, and when I reinstalled 11.0.46 the stability I experienced the first time around was no longer available. I think because I had installed Inte...

Re: Avant Exodus

Spectacular post. And the only place i disagree is with the download manager. On normal servers I get 200kB/s, but with a download manager I get up to 1700kB/s. I love download managers. Is it because you can download several files at once? I was reading somewhere like PC Magazine or PC World, that...

Re: Avant Exodus - It takes a lot of words to list the reasons

I want Avant Browser to be around for a long time. No other browser online has a Forum Community that for me compares to this one. Mozilla might have more forum posts as far as sheer number of people who go there for help, but I think Avant's Forum has more regular contributors and moderators, all a...

Re: 11.6 build 11 issues with Google Toolbar

I'm reluctant to start a new Google Toolbar thread, seeing as there are already at least three started in the Bug Report forum already. Since people are going to look here who already know a little something about Google Toolbar, they might be able to answer my question. I am of the impression that ...

In my situation it didn't come back until I used Internet Explorer today. I normally almost never use Internet Explorer. Today I had to download the new Microsoft Window...

Re: History of Visited Sites

Re: Make System Buttons movable

I only have one *tiny* niggle ... the Next Window (right arrow) and Previous Window (left arrow) order has been reversed and is now rather counterintuitive - the order of the buttons can't be altered in the "Other Buttons" section of the Customise Buttons dialogue. Yeah, that sort of bugs me to. I ...

Re: Disable auto search for highlighted text

When AB changed the Groups & Black Window buttons' usage/position I got so frustrated that I looked elsewhere ( ) and found SlimBrowser which has these items where AB used to have. AB is still my main browser but now and then I stray onto SlimBrowser. So it's all AB's fault, so there! BTW why is th...

I noticed that also, highlighting text I open a new search in Google in the next window. Didn't you used to be able to highlight text in only the color yellow? When I highlight text on a page, and click the highlight icon on the floating toolbar, each word is a different color, and to really annoy m...

Re: if you are not going to FIX CPU usage I'm going to use Opera

well I see having 15-20 tabs open as having 15-20 instances of IE open. try disableing JS and see if the CPU problem occurs. Are you sure about that? I am no programmer, but it would seem that having 15-20 instances of IE open would use far more resources. Each tab in Avant is sharing the same tool...

Re: AB crashes when window transitions are fast (send report)

I have been having this issue myself since August, when build 19 or 20 came about. Sometimes it happens if I am opening many windows one right after the other, or I have been using the same browsing session for several hours, or longer than a day. Other times it happens when I have only two windows ...

Re: Avant won't show images

My guess would be because of tose "flying" or "floating" ads. I would like to know how they make those "floating" ads appear there. I am one of those fortunate enough that Avant blocks almost all of my popups, except that one when I look up definitions of words at the Merriam Webster dictionary web...

All things considered, I think in order to run any newer Version of Windows like XP, and especially Windows Vista (I haven't even played with that one yet), I wouldn't try to do it again without at least a 3Ghz+ - 4Ghz+ processor, with the hyperthreading and dual cores if at all possible.

Re: Reverted to 10.2 52 and wow

I contemplate about reverting to Avant 10.2.52 every day, for at least a minute. I am trying to remember if Avant 11.0.46 had any decent features that made it memorable. I know it's only been since April or May since I started using the 11.5 betas and release candidates, but I already can't remember...
