Avant 2013 & Chrome

Post by ChronoWerX » Mon Feb 11, 2013 8:36 am

Hi,

in most threads you say that the 2013 version will support Chrome Extentions (like Roboform Bar, Icons from Extentions)

In Beta 6 I don't see this.

It is planned or not future for this?

We will add this feature after we release the 2013 build version.

This should really be on the top priority list. Most of the extensions on chrome depend on the toolbar button (for example NotScripts), which makes using chrome with Avant difficult or maybe even unusable for some users. Adblock for chrome has its context menu so its ok, but for other addons the only solution i found is setting a command shortcut in chrome extension options (lower right button) for each extension that doesnt have visible toolbar button.

Firefox has its addon bar, it would be good to have a chrome bar too, or maybe devs find even better way to implement it :)

It's still on the request list, but don't hold out much hope for it....

ouch! this is really unfortunate. as the original poster mentioned some addons like lastpass are dependent on this feature. not having it unavailable in Avant means that when it comes to the Chrome engine the user experience is not complete. i do hope the developer prioritizes this feature if only for the sake of feature completeness.
