Avant Running Google Chrome Add-on

So I installed the new Chrome add-on and then went into Preferences -> Add-on's and activated it. Not sure if it's working but Avant still seems to work. Need to try and get a single tab to fail and see if the whole browser fails or not. http://www.geek.com/articles/news/google-chrome-frame-run-chro...

Re: Multithread Avant

I completely moved over to Orca several months ago. I love the Flash blocker with the ads blocker. The only thing Orca is missing is RoboForm support but I realize that is not Orca's fault.

Re: Orca doesn't like uploading files

Been happening to me too. Everytime I try to save a file the Whereto box pops up and then the whole thing freezes up and I have to abort Orca. (Avant Also)

Missing plug-in

What plug-in is trying to load for this page.

Using all versions of Orca and when I press the INSTALL MISSING PLUG-IN nothing happens.

Re: Make Orca Faster

Thanks yaspaju, Ran all your about:config updates and wow, it really did speed up an already fast browser. Now, is there a way to export the about:config setting so that after the next update, I can just import these settings. I'd hate to have to re-enter all the tweaks again (not that it's all that...

Re: Orca 1.1 B5 and Windows 7

Ok, I can't comment on the slow down as I've jumped from Build 3 to Build 5 and a new OS inbetween :crazy: Have you found that cookies are not sticking however? I am finding that I have to manually log in to any site that Avant Browser would normally automatically log in to eg Yahoo Mail. Yes, I to...

Re: Why has Avant Browser gotten SLOW??

for example: http://www.channelnewsasia.com Visiting that website will always cause avant to use 99% Cpu resources for 5 to 10 seconds. Does anyone experience this in build 31? I just opened it (with Orca) and it worked rather quickly but I did notice that there were a ton of ads loading. This is a...

Re: Orca 1.15 and Windows 7

I've been using Win 7 (x64) with Orca for a few weeks now with no downside side effects at all. Although, I must say that this latest update (Build 5) seems a bit slower than build 4.

Re: New Browser:Home page

I felt hi-jacked and returned to my own home page. Avant's has no style, no useful information that isn't already available in Bookmarks, no current news, weather, no anything. In case you're wondering, I don't like it, we should have the option offered before it replaces our own preferences. Sorry...

Re: RoboForm alternative that really works

ftboomer - do you have multiple master password dialogs at start too? When you save several tabs on close and then the tabs are opened on Orca start. I'd just like to know where is the problem. I don't understand your question? At start up I receive a message but it says nothing about what you are ...
