Yeah, my reference to AvantFind was intended to be a subtle wink to that, but my overall point was that making absolutely no reference to it leaves its purpose to the imagination.AbelAbel wrote:I think it relates to the incomes of Avant . As I know, most of the browsers earn money via the search engines.
Did you not see my screenshot? The results aren't the same. Like I said before, I assume it's the same custom search Google makes available to everyone, but the results do differ.AbelAbel wrote:I tried the string, the search results are exactly the same with google's.

This is odd because even the results change from the custom search results to what they should have been in the first place.Tjexcite wrote:When you open the custom page if you click the search tools you go back to your Google account page and it would be like you opened a search page.

I don't like this and want my old Google back, not the Custom Search. This is happening even though I have my search engine set to http://www.google.com/search?q=%s in Avant.

Wait, you're getting Google's auto-complete in Avant's search bar? I tried using the "avant" string provided by xiaobing as well as my default which is now hi-jacked to google.avantbrowser.com and I don't get that behavior from my search bar. AM I misunderstanding you?

This change feels like a hijacking of my browser. Could you please change it back?
- In Google you can set the option 'Open the search results in a new tab'. In the Avant version this setting is ignored. Which is quite annoying because it makes a multitab browser less useful.
- And the Avant version is slower because there is some kind of redirect between the search command (via the normal Google page?) and the results page.
