Hello all,

The website of Avant Browser is going to be replaced with a new one :D :

How do you like it?

At the bottom there will be a button linked to facebook, maybe you could show your support to Avant Browser by donating a click on "Like" button :wink: :

It's only a fan page for the moment, once we reach to 30 Fans, we can call it the official page :!:

Unfortunately, the forum will keep unchanged. Short of hands.

Better then the current site but the support page is a bit dated. It could also use a few screenshots of AB somewhere.

Looking good

I like the new home page, yea, better than the old one.
@Kand.in.Sky. I think their developer is dealing with the bugs. :wink: As to the home page, they just change the style. This doesn't take much time.

excuse me beeing impertinent - but the amount of bugs i discovered durng a few days and the all-over-bad design, which makes impossibles to use some add-ons (http://forum.avantbrowser.com/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=31592), the very high usage of memory, bad link-calling from ext. programs etc etc.. makes me doubt about working on bugs. AVANT 2012 is nothing more than beta status, maybe even less.
Remember the first builds did even not work on gecko engine (http://forum.avantbrowser.com/viewtopic ... 18&t=30398) and this bug was denied in the first replys...

and f.e. "open all links on this page" wer'e waiting since the very first days of a gecko browser ORCA and i don't belive it will be ever implemented. i got the answer, it is possible when using the ie-engine (http://forum.avantbrowser.com/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=31582). But, if you using the ie-engine the old avant (10.2, bld 52) is much faster and better, for gecko is ORCA the first choice. even it is the old engine.

now imagine an updated ORCA..! WOW!


i really want to use AVANT 2012 - but it is simply impossible and i see no advances comp to the old AVANT and ORCA.
and after installing 'controle de scripts' and 'configuration mania' ORCA is faster than AVANT 2012 ever will be.
and i can use most all add-ons.

try something
open ORCA and AVANT 2012 with about 50+ tabs, check the time and check the memory usage after a few minutes...
just for now AVANT 2012 uses about >100MB (92MB FF + 9MB avant, 1 tab open, googlenews), ORCA uses about 140MB - with 60+ tabs open and playing flash radio in the background. AVANT 2012 was running about 5 min, ORCA since hours.

and for now i discovered ANOTHER BUG! When exiting AVANT 2012 then chrome.exe started. but if you have already the real chrome browser running this results in a crash ("chrome.exe crashes, do you want to restart?")


really, where's the progress..?


sorry, didn't want to write a rant though


regards,
#k.

hello if you want to use IE well in your words ie-engine try IE LITE since there is no web kit the download is alot smaller in the amount of data downloaded and is much faster. :)

@AXEMAN

thanks.
I am happy with Avant 10.2 build 52, which was the last stable and fast one before the new code design. I highly recommend this version for users who wants to use the ie-engine. much better and faster and less memory usage than AVANT 2012.
I am also happy with ORCA, maybe i can figure out how to update this to the new gecko engine.... if not then it does no matter, there is still K-MELON as alternative for a lean, small and fast browser.

Just out of curiosity, how many tabs did you have open at the time?

This issue should have been fixed in avant 2012 build 180. It's due to some processes didn't exit last time closing avant browser so that they persisted in the task manager. Seems your problem is different. The numbber of ybrowser.exe created depends on how many pages you have opened. Normally, one ybrowser.exe contains 5 pages, closing 4 pages contained in a certain ybrowser.exe can't make this process end unless you close all 5 pages residing in it.

The comparison between firefox engine of avant 12 and orca 1.2.6 is to a large extent a comparison between firefox 3 and firefox 14 engine. The memory usage firefox.exe of avant 12 and orca.exe of orca 1.2.6 is mostly decided by the core gecko.

10.2, bld 52 can't prevent the memory leak issue. New avant 2012 is a multi-process program designed for eliminating the continuous increasing memory usage which can't release unless the browser gets closed. Closing some pages now and then can make some ybrowser.exe exit and release the memory taken without closing the browser itself.

Chrome.exe are called for performing the task of removing history. Unchecking the options under Tools>avant browser options>exiting: always erase the following item(s) when exiting won't make them appear during exiting avant browser.
