While there is talk of Google toolbar, I'd like to request MSN Toolbar integration as well. Plus, I'd like the ability to switch the search box on the upper right to MSN as well.

Thanks

Actually it would be nice to be able to add other search engines.

I am focusing on Avant Browser 2006, and may not come here very often.

Avant Browser 2006 is a major update, internal version is 11.0.

Orca will be offical released right after Avant Browser 2006, and comes with all new features of Avant Browser 2006.

If you have any suggestion for the new browsers, please post here.

Sorry for the absence.

Anderson
Hi Anderson,

great news! :D

I watch just 'Orca' groups now, so I've almost missed this topic. Could any moderator make new topic in some Orca group with a link to this topic please? Thanks.

Good luck with the new browsers, Anderson. :D

I think having all the options editable is required. The only one I can think of right now that is not editable through the user interface is the location of the tab bar. Since the installer asks where to place it, many people don't know how to change it once Avant is installed.
I kind of think it belongs in the same spot as View>>Customize Buttons. Maybe change the name to Customize Toolbars would be a better choice of wording.

I hope AB2006 can enhance the AD Blocker feature, like the extension of Firefox eg. adblock plus.

Avant is great but I am having trouble with Java on a few sites. So when I do I start up IE and just go back to the site. I would like an option in the right click menu to VIEW THIS PAGE IN INTERNET EXPLORER. So if there is issues I wont have to go through the hassle of starting it up.
Thanks.

Do I take it your not using XP Sp2? If this is the case, your problems might be fixed by uninstalling Microsoft's Java VM. Avant still uses this in preference to Sun's - even though IE does not!

If you search, Hipfox, you'll find that this has been discussed a lot. Avant has a "sister" called Orca which uses Firefox, and the long term plan is to integrate the two into one.

Feature Suggestion:

I find these days I use Wikipedia a **** of a lot. It's established itself now as the first point of call for quick information. Though I do have a quicksearch set up, it would be nicer if it were one of the options in the search box dropdown.

High CPU usage, unresponsiveness when closing some pages with plugins, and slow performance with lots of tabs open are problems.
I agree with dezzo, and others, that Avant browser needs a little performance work. I usually need to close AB at least once a day, either because it take 10's of MB of memory (even with very few or no tabs!) or because it starts having 100% CPU usage and stops responding all-together.
Seconded. 8) Avant thinks nothing of using 130Mb of memory for 4 tabs! I once caught it using 405mb! :shock: :roll:
