Hello. You had this feature on a previous Avant Browser, but now, it's not there. I want to chose my search engine before i search. Like Mozilla Firefox, near the place where you type what you want to search is a list that will allow you to chose the search engine... Thank You and excuse me for my English, i am from Romania.

Hello,
You may set search engine under Tools>Avant Browser Options...>Search Engine>Standard Search...
Look here for the search strings.
IE8(Pro), Microsoft Security Essentials

Sorry, that isn't possible I'm afraid.

But what you can do is use quick search instead. Where you enter a user defined alias for a search engine. I have binded : wke for search on Wikipedia. So I will just type wke and whatever I want to seach for afterwards.
