Tabs on bottom, menu bar, and status bar?

Post by Nurb » Fri Oct 18, 2013 1:04 am

Since firefox has begun removing options and functionality I've used for years to be a chrome wannabe, I've stopped updating FF and have been looking for alternative browsers. I downloaded Avant today since I read there was so much customization and options available

I see there are a lot of options for the browser, but I can't find the options to place tabs on bottom, return the status bar and return the file menu bar. While we're at it I'm also looking for options for caching limits and the option to ask me each time where I want to download files as I keep things pretty organized in different folders :mrgreen:

I already searched about the advice to go to vew > put tabs on bottom but the option isn't there.

This is the screenshot shown in the list of alternative browsers.

It seems that you are using an old version.
Please go to Help>About Avant browser to check your version number.

Put tab bar on bottom: View>check the option "Show tab bar on bottom"
Isn't the File menu on top right corner? I can see it in your image.
Status bar: View> check status bar.

Thanks for the reply...

The screenshot isn't what I'm using, build 118, but one from the website that listed a bunch of browsers as an example of the options I was looking for.

Here's what I have under "view"

Just a info , I see that now you are using the "chrome style of skins" , if you want use the classic style of skins go to View>>Skins and choose one of the skins at the bottom (below the line at the center) .
The skins at the top are the chrome style of skins.

But that option exists using the classic style of skins .

That did the trick! Thank you :D I even found the option to put the status bar back that way too

Are the caching and cookie options hidden somewhere too?

Avant itself doesn't have caching and cookie options but you can set it under each engine.
If you use firefox engine, you can set it here: Tools>Mozilla firefox>Options.
