What's happened to the Avant homepage...?

Post by Victor Delta » Fri Mar 29, 2019 9:26 am

Oh dear, the Avant homepage seems to have disappeared... Anyone know what's happened?

There hasn't been an update for some months now, so is this finally telling us that Avant is dead? If so, I for one, will be very sad indeed as I've used it for years and it's been really great. Thanks to Anderson and all those who made it possible.

In fact, I'll carry on using the 2017 b10 ultimate version (the latest version that works properly for me, including use of Last Pass) for as long as I can. Unless anyone can suggest a better alternative...? I had a search for possible alternatives a few months ago and couldn't find anything that matched Avant's features and functionality - a real tribute to it's developer.

Homepage doesn't work here too, it's sad.

Regarding the alternative, I think it's off topic, perhaps you should start a new topic.
Anyway, it depends on how you are using Avant, which engine(s), features, extensions are you using, but it would be better to start a new topic.

Yes, very sad. And we all don't know when the servers would be down and all the data gone.
Is there any browser that comes close to Avant in Terms of Autofill convenience?

I really like it, how in Avant you can just select the autofill link and it would open the page and log you in...

And after about 24 hours, it's back again. Anyone any ideas about what's going on, especially as the forum is ok even when the home page etc is off?

And it's gone again - something very odd going on.

Perhaps it's time to ask the last person here to switch the lights off?
