In IE you can watch video while loading pages in the background, but not in Avant. And that is not even a threading problem. Avant stalls on many pages where no other browser have a problem.
But I can watch Youtube videos when a lot of tabs are loading in background. Have you tried to disable the ads blocker?

I'm unable to play this movie in neither IE nor Avant regardless off what websites are loading in background. I'm only able to see the ad before the movie just fine. Then there's a script error.

I'm pretty sure this subject is subjective. I've personally had the same buffering problems in every browser in the past.

Flowrush, you have "never" had a buffer problem in any other browser? Same for you psykocyber.

Well, It seems to work fine now.
I've tried to open 3 tabs with http://edbpriser.dk/ while watching this movie and it worked fine.

Watching a video in one tab while surfing in another is impossible due to constant stalls.
As the threads creator is it not surprising that I 100% agree.

I for one support the idea of having multithread in Avant. Like in Google Chrome, I would like to know how much resources each of the tabs is using and kill them if not needed.

Sorry about the delayed response, but yes I have had buffering problems in other browsers, but it is not consistent like in Avant. If there is ever an issue I can fire up IE(7) and 9 times out of 10, the video loads fine. CNN is really the only site where there is an outstanding issue with the video which still, to this day, has not been resolved.

I used Avant for about 5 years until I decided to try Orca about a month ago and since then it's my default browser. I still keep my Avant updated but I hardly use it. Even though Orca has several bugs, IMO it's still better than Avant by far, no more stalls!! And the addons makes it even better. I only wish it didn't take so long to get an official version out. Would have been kool if it was Open Source.

Is Orca like Avant in that you can change where the tabs are displayed....(I like mine on the bottom of the page and so far...Avant is the only tabbed browser I have found that lets you do that.

+1 vote for multithreading
p.s. i have videos disabled = jscript is enough to freeze browser for minute (there was another thread about this), even without it mt is required

I completely moved over to Orca several months ago. I love the Flash blocker with the ads blocker. The only thing Orca is missing is RoboForm support but I realize that is not Orca's fault.

+1 for Multithreading

The only thing that has ever crashed Avant for me, to my knowledge, are ads.. There are just some ads that Avant does not like when trying to load a page and it just sits there churning and if you try to do anything it crashes.. But, then its random on which ad is going to do it. Btw, this is more on Vista then on 7..
