Avant 11.5 is persuading me to change from Firefox 2.0

Post by igoldsmid » Tue May 22, 2007 7:50 am

Because FF is such a memory hog - after opening a number of Tabs, its seems to always end up using 350mb RAM - probably cos I've got too many extensions. But anyway - Avant 11.5 is fabulous - much better than Maxthon 2....

Does anyone know if there is a way to 'import' Firefox history into IE/Avant?

In which way??? I just installed Max 2 to test it and everything is exactly as it was in AB except for my inability to get the favorites online!

Regarding the bookmarks, is it not just possible to export from FF and then import into AB?

He said Firefox history, not bookmarks. And no, I'm not aware of a way to do that.
