"Download this video" in the new RealPlayer 11 doe

Hi. The new RealPlayer 11 (Beta) has a cool feature that adds a download popup to videos so you can get them into the player from the web page. It works in IE7, but not in Avant. Any idea why that is? Other pop-ups like that from for instance the Orbit Downloader works in both Avant and IE. I really...

Yes, I'd be curious to see if the OP finds any differences in their system other than the install of RC3. Personally, I've never had these memory issues and the comment about the coding of 11.5 overall doesn't really answer anything about the difference in this one release. I have been watching RC3...

Currently, it's not possible. Sure it is. You have to be using AB bookmarks and display all your folders on the bookmark bar. If you select a folder as root or use IE favs as bookmarks then its not displayed. Thanks. I did this and it works. Still what I really want is to be able to have certain Au...

Thanks! I may be stupid, but now I have an entry for AutoFills in my bookmarks, but not in my bookmark toolbar. I can't seem to find a way to make that happen.

That is odd. Is there any way to have it function in Windows as the default mail client? I have Thunderbird set as mine and have "Outlook Express" selected in Avant. Avant still opens Thunderbird, which is what I want. Maybe this same thing could work here? When I set Yahoo! as default I went to a ...

That button should have a small drop-down next to it giving you these options. It doesn't. It's simply a button without any dropdown. This is interesting. I have Yahoo! Mail set as my mail program in Avant. If I change it to Outlook Express I do get the dropdown next to the button. That's weird sin...

"Did you mean..." in AvantFind

Hi, I have found AvantFind to be a good search page (powered by Yahoo!). But since I am a hopeless spelller I would like to see the "did you mean..." feature Yahoo! and Google has in AvantFind. When I search for "Avvant browsser" I want to be asked "Did you mean Avant Browser". I may be posting in t...

While I know it's not what you're looking for, the File menu isn't the only place you can get this. In addition to the top of the Tools menu, you can add the button to the toolbar, which also has the mailing options. ( View -> Customize Buttons ) Thanks! That would help, but I am not able to find t...

Keyboard shortcut and right click access for "Send a li

Hi,

I would really like to see a keyboard shortcut and right click menu item for the "Send a link" function. This function is so tied up to the browser window that it shouldn't be "hidden" in the File dialog.

What happened in RC3?

Hi, I have been trying all the beta's and RC's for Avant 11.5, but have given up since they have seemed unstable and a huge memory hogs. When RC3 came along I was close to not even bother, but I did it anyway since I really like Avant and used to how it works. What a surprise! It has been running fo...

Avant 11.5 doesn't work with Spell Catcher Plus.

Hi, I am using the universal spell checker (and more) called Spell Catcher Plus (http://www.spellcatcher.com/). I have used it for years since it also has a lot of other functions I use in my work. It works in all Windows programs I have ever used, except for the Avant Browser. I really want to move...

Button and/or key combo for "Send link...."

Hi,

I often send links to people in e-mail. I would really like to be able to have the "Send link..." option as a button in the toolbar, or at least have a key combo for it.

Re: Close to giving up

I ran Vista for a couple of days. Security my a**. The most secure aspect of it is that it won't run for very long at a time, and that a lot of programs won't work at all, so they can't cause harm. I remember when XP came along how people swore they would never leave Win2K. They did. We'll see if Vi...

Avant vs Maxthon.

Hi, I have been testing Avant 11.5 and the new Maxthon 2.x betas. I see some differences between the two when it comes to features, and I think I like Avant the most. However, in the end performance is very important. Are there under the hood differences between the two which affects speed and relia...

Hi, I am a relatively new Avant user, but a really impressed one! Avant has been my default browser for a while now, and I'm not turning back. I am always curious about new software so I tried the preview of the new Maxthon 2 browser yesterday. What immediately struck me was the similarity to Avant ...

Avant using IE7 as backend?

Hi, If you have IE7 installed is it the IE7 rendering engine being used by the Avant browser? Forgive me if this is a stupid question for seasoned Avant users, but I started using Avant very recently finding that FF got slow when I added the extensions I need while Avant had it all built in anyway. ...
