you have released stable version of Avant but still you haven't merged firefox engine in it.
When it comes? I'm waiting almost 2 years for new version of Orca!

Better sooner than later

What about engines updates built in Avant
What about Avant updates itself ? There should be automatical updates (without necessity of downloading whole installer file)

When Orca is folded into Avant, will spell checking be like Orca (my preference) or like Avant?

Avant is developing too slow in comparison with other browsers.
I think that you have to hire some developers to make process faster.
I wait 2 years to change My orca to something new.
If it will still be that way i would change avant to chrome and that will be it

Although I can be sympathetic with Avant developer staff need for money, there is a brutal reality to browser development economics. All browsers in widespread use are free. They all seem to have some features which make them better in some cases. In my situation I use Avant, Orca, Firefox, Chrome, and (occasionally) Internet Explorer. I had used Opera also, but I found nothing particularly special about it. I never bothered trying Safari. To repeat, these are all free.

Nevermind no one is making something for free there are ways to earn money on browser developing.
Do you think that Mozilla hires developers without giving them money or microsoft ?

I wont pay for anything, there are many ways that developers can do to get money from ads etc.
There are so many browser and i really don't want to hear about payments,
Generally development is too slow and this is the bad side of avant.
It always been slow.
I'm waiting to hear something new from you

Nobody said you have to pay anything and the merger i am told is very soon. So if someone likes any site as well as avant they can donate if they can afford it .So bottom line you donnot have to pay for anything :)
