Re: Avant switch between IE7 and IE8 Final

As of AB 11.7 Build 45, Avant is now automatically switched to IE8 standards mode at installation. You will still need this plugin to switch back to IE7 compatibility mode..

Re: Search feature fails on site

Are you pushing the searching the web or searching the current site button beside the search box in Avant? Or just pressing enter when you type your search term?

Sorry for the delay in posting. Unfortunately, as far as I know, this is not possible at this time.

Re: >>After Win 7 clean install

If you don't see Run in Start on Win7 you can type "%appdata%\Avant Profiles\.default\" into the search box at the bottom of the Start menu. They both do the same thing. Also just in case your unsure, the fact that you have Windows 7 installed means that you have IE8.

Re: Build 45 changed my settings.

I noticed that build 45 changed the homepage in IE to ask.com but not in Avant, it didn't change my search engine in IE or Avant though. We appoligize for this and I will ask why this happened. From looking at your screenshots it looks like your email service is using Google to host their email as t...

Re: In Praise of Avant

<r>Yes welcome to the forums, Brainetree.. I'm glad Avant has satisfied all your gripes with other competing browsers. In defense of IE8 in one particular issue, I believe the reasons for moving the menu bar was of a security nature. To prevent spoofing of the address bar by rouge toolbars.<br/> <br...

New Search Engine switcher in build 45

<t>There is a new feature in build 45 that isn't listed in the changelog that is pretty interesting (or else I just never noticed it before).<br/> <br/> There is a new drop-down list to the left of the search box that lets you switch search engines on the fly. There is Bing, Yahoo, Ask, and AvantFin...

Re: English Language

In other words ABman, when you install Avant it will default to your Windows language. Avant isn't supposed to override your choice to change languages specifically for Avant after installation.

Re: Keep or Remove RSS Feature?

IMHO, the reason your advocating javascript is because you can code in javascript.. Its just a matter of the programmers taste. Have very feature as a plugin(componentized) or have all features built into the product. Also in my opinion, programming languages like C++,C#, etc. can run things faster ...

Re: Keep or Remove RSS Feature?

Well, if its built-in you dont have to go get it if you want it, its already there. Plus, I am pretty sure it will use less resources if its built in compared to being an IE or Avant plugin or Orca Extension.

Re: Keep or Remove RSS Feature?

If package size is a major reason for getting rid of the current design then I strong disagree. All downloadable browsers to my knowledge are considerably bigger than Avant. Orca is over 5 times bigger than Avant and no one minds. I do believe a considerable amount of people use the RSS feature so I...

Re: Is Avant going away?

I haven't played with Maxthon 3 in a few months but I thought they combined Trident and Webkit not Gecko. But in any case Anderson said once several years ago that he was thinking about the possibilities of combining the engines into one browser but I doubt he will.

Re: Forum Background [Avant Browser skin]

There are 2 problems with changing to a fixed background, one the headers background which blends in with the background would continue to scroll and two the point of this style is to look seamless between the main site and the board and making the background fixed would hurt the seamlessness.

Re: Firefox plugins?

The reason Tab mix plus does not work in Orca is because Orca isn't built to add/change any of the interface such as add buttons or change the appearance. That will be changing in Orca v2 but that release is a long way off. Since Orca v2 will be based off the upcoming Avant 12 and Avant 12 developme...

Re: Opening new tab's - relative location option

Umm kudos..lol He mentioned several of the skins in that menu..

But anyway, flowrush the skin/theme system has been rewritten for Avant 12 so it will be ALOT less restrictive in how you skin Avant. It will be closer to how Firefox skins are made but alittle bit different..
