Aaaah. Legal issues with the "IE" part I presume? Because "MyIE2" was actually rather catchy, especially in relativity to "Maxthon." Oh well, I'm sidetracking. As for losing the settings between the beta and RC installs of Avant, I just renamed beta.inf to conf.inf (deleting the existing conf.inf fi...

Auto Refresh Checked

I couldn't find this suggestion on the forums. Maybe an Auto Refresh Checked option where you select which tabs you want to auto refresh, then a value, then use an Apply button, for example (allowing you to check and set more tabs)? Just an idea that I thougt'd be useful for the times where you want...

The only purpose for those registry values for IE is to brand the browser (i.e: AOL can put "Internet Explorer distributed by America Online.")
Branding Avant is useless, as Avant is not liscenced to be distributed with commercial software.

I find no difference in safeness between Mozilla browsers and Avant, but maybe it is just due to my browsing habits.

If 'Show Avant in taskbar' and 'Minimize to system tray on minimize' is enabled, and you try to minimize from taskbar, the browser window is minimized, but not to the system tray, it remains in taskbar.
I've found this has been a problem for a long time.

Replies: 6
Views: 1568

If you open something in a tab that was launched via JavaScript without scollbar-display, then the scrollbars won't display in that tab. But because Avant treats every window as resizable, whether the JavaScript calls for a resizable window or not, it's easy to forget these tabs were spawned via Jav...

Hey Sara! Lately I've been seeking employment and spending weekends with my ladyfriend. I need two credits to graduate, so I applied to a waiting list to go to night classes at a local college starting in January to complete the credits.

I have several browsers installed mainly to test for compatability for the pages I create on my site. Mozilla's rendering engine specifically (as many of my firends use Mozilla/Mozilla Firefox).

I agree.

I think it would be nice to be able to customize the Ad Blocker (which has been suggested before) to an image of your choice, so then you can achieve the suggestion via transparency. I also would like the page load rate/time display in the status bar (preferably the option to show/hide it as well). ...
