Try AdFender - it's free and works extremely well

Re: A very sad and disappointing trend

I agree. What's the point of a browser if it doesn't do the job - if it makes life more difficult - rather than one that makes life easier. I'll go for the easier every time. Office ? I was able to buy Office 2013 for a small sum so I thought I'd try it. It's so dreadful it's never been used since. ...

Re: Why do I like Avant ?

I've been using Slimbrowser today. It's the closest to Avant that I've tried. It does most of the things I like. Not quite as attractive as Avant whichever skin is used, but overall pretty good and still being developed, it seems ... And for portable devices, there is a separate Portable version ......

Re: Why do I like Avant ?

Oh well, another one bites the dust ! I did try out a bunch of browser some months ago. I might have thought they would improve over time, but the reverse seems to be the case. Dropping further down my list, the next one was Maxthon 3. I noted that it didn't work with Roboform (neither did Opera) bu...

Why do I like Avant ?

Why do I like Avant ? (I am currently using 2013 buid 23) - Toolbars can be placed side-by-side so occupy little space unlike some browsers - Favourites can be kept on-screen at left – readily turned on & off by on-screen button - Search field on all screens and simple button to control - Search Sit...

Notify me ...

I have v 2013 build 23

I do NOT have the "Notify me of new versions" ticked

BUT it still notifies me which is very annoying because the chance of my installing 107 or 108 is absolutely zero !

Re: Build 108 is a huge disappointment!

After seeing how completely and utterly dreadful 107 was, I have so far completely ignored 108 as I simply assumed it would also be rubbish. So I didn't even bother to download it. I just thought I would take a look at the forum to see the views of the "critics". Oh dear ... the reviews look even wo...

Re: How do you move the whole sidebar in Build 107?

I've had the Favourites sidebar permanently on for years - and on the left. Just installed 107 - it's on the right - I don't want it there. I can't move it, so I close it to see if that helps .... No, can't bring it back now. 107 is coming off right now ! :thumbdown: Please stop wasting your time im...

No, that is definitely NOT what I want. All those wrong guesses from my partly typed words while I am still typing drive me mad ! It does not do that on my system and I don't want it to do that ! Firstly, this is an example of what used to happen: I search for "totttenham" (too many t's) Google come...

Sorry - you said "new Avant profile" and I immediately thought "new Avant UI" :eh:

I have just tried
a) with a new profile & good UI - it doesn't work

b)with a new profile & bad UI - it doesn't work


So, in short, it no longer works, at least on my PC ...

Re: Search field not updated any more

I often use the history of search keywords used that session - it is useful

So the answer is "1 the history of your searched keywords"


(I never like any browser trying to guess what I want to type - I turn that off)

I thought I had already reported this but I can't find it ... so here it is again (sorry if it is a duplicate). I use the Avant search field to run a Google search. If I mis-spell something, then Google might suggest someother spelling it has used. In the past, if I clicked that Google result, it up...

Re: Your suggestion about the Avant interface

I'm afraid I have no inclination to try the new bad UI again. I have the latest Avant version installed but I'm sticking with the good UI. If I wanted a bad UI, I may as well use Chrome or IE. The reason I use Avant is that it is vastly superior to those barebones browsers. OK, some people like a bi...

Re: Your suggestion about the Avant interface

I agree too - install the UI rather than the Awkward_UI by default. I don't see any point in trying to scare off users - new and existing ? However, I much prefer the compact view - I don't like wasting space. Just because some bad, but heavily marketed, browsers are widely used, it doesn't mean Ava...

Re: Your suggestion about the Avant interface

Mike You are right - I was not referring to the Avant page asking for donations. We did see that at some point but the bit I remember was a page of nothingness - the UI. I referred to it as a blank screen - it wasn't totally blank, but it might just as well have been for anyone new to Avant, or some...

Re: Your suggestion about the Avant interface

I did try the new interface when it was initially released but only for a few minutes. My "old" profile was still in place and I tried to straighten out a few things with the new interface. I quickly realised that I did not like it and went back to my "old" interface (which itself now needed re-stra...
