This latest version didn't address to the fatel crash problems and blue screen of death most users encounter on daily bases.

Very disappointed at Anderson. He doesn't care about his customers. No wonder people are abanding AB for better ones.

The crash is worse than the last revision. I can't even make it work by deleting ybrowser.com aloneg. I have to kill the program and restart.

Does anyone want to share your experience with this new version here?

This version is literally unusable, no matter which rendering engine is used. I'm lucky if it runs for an hour at a time. The worst part is that even when the pop up tells you it's crashed and asks you if you want to wait or kill the program, you end up having to open Task Manager to actually kill Avant, or it will continue to run in the background even after the pop up and browser seemingly shut down. Have gone back to Chrome and Firefox separately, which is what I downloaded Avant specifically to avoid having to do.

Update: After this last crash, I can't even open Avant anymore, even after a full computer restart. Not sure I'm even willing to uninstall and reinstall it after the progressive crap "updates" lately.

I confirm. Build 10 changelog says that it fixes the crash and it is worst. This is the Apple syndrom: never test your software before release ;)

Only solution : go back to Build 9.

Built 10 does not work. Where can I find AB 17 built 9? There is only built 8 available.

Please give build 11 a try, see if the crash issue is fixed.

It started opening default Chrome engine to nothing but the purple "tab has crashed" tabs (5 pinned tabs) - and no amount of refreshing the tabs or closing and restarting the browser would bring them out of this state. Installed build 11 from this link, and it worked. For just over 2 hours. Then...Avant crashed and closed itself. Had to go to Task Manager to fully close Avant, and when I re-open Avant, all Chrome tabs are again purple. I can ONLY use the tabs if I switch default browser to Firefox engine.

Just go back to 10 guys. It was at least stable. Seriously. You're making it worse.

Hello,

Build 12 solves the problem and it seems that it works very fine. Moreover, it integrates FF57 and is really faster than before. A big thank to the dev.
