Curious about the size of AB 2012

I just wondered why the download size of AB 2012 (22.7 MB) is 3 times the size of Firefox download (7.54 MB).
I guess it's because Firefox downloads a lot more during installation.
Could AB do it this way?

Except that is not the size of the Firefox download. The current Firefox 6.0.2 download is 13.8 MB.

AB 2012 a5's size of 16.7 MB is certainly comparable.

It was the size I last downloaded it!!
I've used the built-in FF updater since then so didn't notice the increase in the initial download size which has, as you say, increased to > 13MBs.

I was happy just with the Trident engine!
If I want to use Firefox engine I'll use the Firefox browser.

I'm just wandering whether Avant allows us to choose which engine(s) to download?
