Please add these features that Chrome has.

I use chrome because of these two features.

1. The tabs are on top! There should be an option for this. Chrome uses less real-estate which is better for netbooks. Plus that top windows bar is wasted space anyway.


2. Auto-correct in the address bar. If I want to go to google.com, and because google is the most frequently visited site I use that starts with G, all i have to do is type 'G' and the address bar automatically fills in google.com. Avant's I have to press extra buttons to start scrolling down. Chrome saves keystrokes and mouse clicks.

Auto-Complete is already on the developers To-Do list for upcoming versions / 2011.

See here: http://forum.avantbrowser.com/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=28680

Tabs on Top was requested before I believe, but I'm not sure if Anderson plans to implement it, though I agree it would be a nice option.

This style is also discussed here:

Please provide the following information before reporting problems:
Avant Version; System(also point out it is a 32 or 64-bit OS);IE; Memory Size; CPU Speed;
Optional: Firewall; Graphics Card

For the problems hard to replay, could you add me into your MSN or Skype list if you use either of them? The advantage is that you can let us know the situation in the first place by making some screenshots, sharing your screen or explaining the specific problems more clearly when they happen.

Pressing f11 or f12 to enter full screen or full desktop mode can't satisfy you? Both modes save huge space for you.

Jasmine didn't respond to this particular concern of yours, so, I will. Avant has this feature. To find it go to Avant Options than to URL Alias than select the "Add" button. Then type in an alias letter or name such as "g" for google.com (example), then go to the next section and type in the URL address. Be sure to click "Apply" and "OK". If you are using on line storage be sure to save what you've done.

Browser Peeper,URL alias is great, but he asked for a greater feature regarding the address bar auto-complete. I have had it recorded.

Sam, future AB downloader will auto-rename the repeated file "aussi".
