Re: Browser User Information

That's the point of the site. It's a way to track you even if you don't have cookies enabled. Right now, as far as I know, it's only a proof of concept but it doesn't seem all that hard to put into practice.

Re: English Language

Way to dig up a year and 3 months old thread but anyway... If you have and Italian version of Windows, for example, and have Windows set to display English instead of Italian, Avant will use Italian by default. Obviously you can change this but the default is the version of Windows you have installed.

Re: Hogging resources

Just to be clear, it only shows up once Orca is launched? How about after Orca is closed? Does the sound go away?

What are the specs of your computer? Processor? Ram?

Re: Has Avant Browser fixed the bug with Windowblinds yet?

I've used Avant with Windowblinds for years and have never had a problem. Can you take a screenshot of the problem you are having.

Re: Firefox Updated

No problem. That setting evaded me for a while as well but it didn't make sense that they would remove that feature. It just got moved in 3.5.

Re: Forum Background [Avant Browser skin]

Statm's correct. The Avant Browser homepage was designed and created by someone else originally.

In the past I've had so many problems keeping psds that I now keep them in 3 separate places so I hopefully, never lose them.

Re: Forum Background [Avant Browser skin]

Well, the first one is really unfixable because there are no PSDs of the header so you can't exactly take the background out.

Re: Forum Background [Avant Browser skin]

Well for Firefox, there is an extension called stylish and if you don't want to install another extension, it can be done in userContent.css. I'm not sure if you can do it in Safari. Either way, I'll point Matt to this thread and see what he thinks.

Re: normal for UAC prompt opening avant?

Avant and Orca are essentially the same.

Is "Run this program as an administrator" checked in the shortcut properties?

Re: Keep or Remove RSS Feature?

Although I use another feed reader, I would rather it stay because I'm sure many people do use it. Is it going to be removed because there are problems with it? or just because you want to? If it's the former, then I would rather the bugs be fixed. If it's the latter, well, that's just a poor reason.

You shouldn't ever have to answer to a UAC prompt with Avant.

Re: Two Bugs: '@' and Download-Bug

I can't reproduce the first issue but for the second, do you mean minimizing to the system tray? You can right click on the icon to get Avant back.

Re: Drop-down menu does not work

Well, it's not directly a fault of Avant as it is the default behavior that Microsoft decided on. However, Avant, and other pieces of software, can change this by adding an entry to the registry.

Re: Orca Browser, just installed

Orca is very limited in the types of extensions that can be used with it. Anything that changes the look of the browser simply won't work because Orca is created with an entirely different technology. There is a list of extensions that work and do not work.
