Quick search for Snap?

Hi, Have anyone here been able to make a Quick search string that works for the Snap search engine? I am able to make one that works for one search. But if I put in a second search while the first search result page still is open, nothing happens. I have to close the result page before I am able to ...

Re: Must restart Avant for new URL alias to work.

There a number of things that may require a restart. This is just one. This is a common thing in many programs, is it not? Sara :) Well, some programs have restart requirements, and Windows itself does from time to time (understatement of the day!). But most often you are told that a restart is req...

Must restart Avant for new URL alias to work.

Hi,

When I add a new URL alias it doesn't work until after I restart Avant. Is it supposed to be that way, or is it a bug?

I'm using online bookmarks.

Hi, At this URL there's a picture in .jpg format: http://www.uhrendirect.de/shop/images/artikel/40240.jpg When I right click in Avant and select "Save picture as..." the only option is to save it as a .bmp file. In other browsers you can choose, or at least save it as the same format it's in. Is it ...

In Task Manager, go to View-->Select Columns, and enable "Virtual Memory Size" and compare the usage of the 3 browsers.

Why is Avant using far less memory than Maxthon2 and IE7?

Hi, I am mostly running on a laptop and Vista is no rocket even though my laptop is considered to be "Vista Ready". Browsers are normally resource hogs, so I have had Avant, Maxthon2 and IE run in parallel over a few days. What's become very obvious to me is that Avant uses about half the memory of ...

Avant as default browser in Vista seriously broken.

Hi, Both Opera and Maxthon2 show up in the "Default Program" utility in Windows Vista and can be set to be the default browser from there or from within the browser itself. Avant doesn't, and the built in default browser setting in Avant isn't working right in Vista. There's no Avant entries in the ...

Hi, I would rather not have a whole bar open for the one or two add-on buttons I use in Avant (IESpell being the most important). Would it be possible to have add-on buttons show up in the available buttons under "Customize Buttons..." so I could add them to the "Standards Buttons" bar? I guess what...

Good looking skin for Vista?

Hi, There's a lot of very good skins made available to Avant users. However, in my opinion there's really none that looks very good in Windows Vista. The only ones that seems to have been made with Vista in mind is a couple of very dark ones which is a style I am not very in to. That leaves a lot of...

Still, every time I open Avant I am asked if I want it to be the default browser. Doesn't the default browser settings in Avant stick in Vin...

Avant based RSS Gadget for Windows Vista

Hi,

By default Windows Vista comes with a sidebar gadget cycleing through IE7 RSS feeds. I would really like something similar for Avant since I keep my RSS feeds there and not in IE7.

Re: Mouse cursor flickers when hovering over buttons in Vist

Just a little update. This flickering is really annoying now. It's costant whereever I hover over any UI part of Avant in compact mode. It doesn't happen when the mouse cursor is still, but it's really hard to move to where you want when the cursor flickers up and down, in and out. To me compact mod...

Re: Avant browser and the new RealPlayer 11 video grab.

I'm leary of adding betas--they have bugs that could mess up in conjuntion with Avant. But give it a try if you wa...

Hi, When I use the browser in compact mode in Vista the cursor flickers when I hover over buttons or tabs. It starts happening when I have opened a few tabs and used the browser for a little while. This does not happen at all when I'm not in compact mode. I like compact mode, so I hope this can be f...

I'm confused. If you're using online storage, I thought you just log in at each computer and you get everything, all settings. Why copy stuff manually?
