Re: Avant freeze

You must be enchanted or something. The night I posted that comment I had 4 or 5 of those freezes, and ybrowsers that kept getting stuck and eating up CPU cycles/RAM even after Avant was closed.... Since my last post I have had one (at least) more. Usually a restart cleans things up for a while. On...

Re: Adblock Plus Letting Ads By

That stinks. Adblock Plus should state that on their site. They should also stop saying it's free, since accepting payment to allow certain ads through makes it adware (advertising-supported software), not freeware. Seems to me I read not too long ago that AP was owned either by GoOgle or an ad age...

Adblock Plus Letting Ads By

Advertisers can pay AdBlock Plus to look the other way

Large companies like Google can pay the popular ad-blocking extension AdBlock to let their ads through.

Re: Here's a novel idea!

There is no such thing as not being able to fix bugs. You either change the faulty programming or you rewrite the code. Saying that the bugs can't be fixed says that Avant will ever be a bug-ridden waste of time. If that's the case, then why bother with it anymore if this is as good as it gets? Why ...

Re: Here's a novel idea!

How about fixing the major bugs like focus stealing and such before fixing the little things or adding more things? That right there will get the majority of the people off your backs. As it sits right now, I can't even recommend Avant to anyone. I've passed over several Avant recommendation opportu...

Re: Avant freeze

Since downloading build 108, Avant freezes up fairly often. I need to use the task manager to close Avant so that I can continue. Is this an Internet overload problem or an Avant problem? I've found that build 108 crashes more than the last version too. And it don't crash with a purple screen or an...

Re: Wrong Date in History

Yeah, I find your thread on this dating back to March of 2012. Wow, more than a year later and still no fix and not even a reply of at least acknowledgment from Avant. I am going to try out SlimBoat browser. Not b/c of this problem per se and AB actually has a lot of potential BUT the fact that a s...

Re: URL & Page Don't Match

Using Firefox renderer. It happens quite often, so I cant figure out exactly why it happens yet. So we know it does it on IE & Firefox rendering. Seems to me that this was an issue in earlier builds too, but there's been so many bug reports with the 100 builds that it's hard to keep up with....

Re: Again: Please recover the left side favorites bar

I don't know how do you move the sidebar to left. But it just changes the surface,doesn't change the code. Actually, the sidebar still on right. :lol: I don't think anybody cares whether it's on the surface or in the code -- it works! If it can be done by dragging things around and everything still...

If I didn't want a browser without any configurability I'd just use Internet Explorer. I mean, why bother, ya know? Way back when AOHell bought out Firefox and proceeded to butcher it, I went back to using IE. Then I started my search for something more configurable and discovered Maxthon. I was hap...
