Perhaps it's me but I cannot see what this d***n splitter bar does that the button bar doesn't. Seems an inordinate waste of time to me!

;) it does nothing more, of course...it's just closer to the mouse pointer, wherever it may be...so it's faster to get to!
that's why so many of us asked for that! :D

@ Anderson:
Thanks again for the splitter bar!
What about the new strings for the language translation? 8)

Well it's not closer to my mouse pointer. Mine is usually over the other side for scrolling or up the top for entering in the search or URL text boxes.

Well, 003 has been running now for 22 hours....... and it's begun to get extremely sluggish now.

Edit

I've just checked my resources and they're fine, and my CPU usage is only at around 40%, so I have no idea whats causing this sluggishness

What I noticed is that the latest betas are slower than 9.01.116
Since Anderson released the .119, and asked whether we found the new release slower...well, I've found AB slower

That esp in first connecting to pages, not in site browsing..

Thanks Anderson for Splitter Bar back !!! :lol:
For me is a good idea add the option for Auto Hide like top panel in full screen mode.
After some hours the beta 4 is quite stable.
One more step to Paradise.... :wink:

I'm afraid I have had to go back to 9.01.119 as the newer one's are just too unstable as far as speed is concerned (they're fine for a couple hours, but then start to get sluggish, to the point where it's taking 2-3 mins to load a standard no-graphic webpage).

Thus, just a couple requests for the next release (if possible);

1. Locate and fix whatever is causing AB's iexplore to stop responding when closing Avant
2. Locate and fix whatever is slowing AB down so much.

At first I thought it was a resource and/or CPU issue, but it appears, after checking, that it's not.

It's great because it clears up the button bar.

I can remove Fav, Search, and Histroy.

Plus with the search field gone, I can fit Nav, Addy, Tab, and Menu buttons all on one bar!!! Take out the status bar, you have one big **** window, for browsing!

Side bar splitter ROCKS!!!!!!
