Let's have a poll

Post by mbrazil » Fri Mar 22, 2013 3:54 am

I'd like to get an idea how many people who come to the forums like the new UI and how many prefer the old UI (with the classic skins), so I'm posting this as a request for everyone to state which UI they prefer and why. Thanks!

The new interface is baddie. :) Instead of using Avant Ultimate only with gecko engine, logical set Firefox...

Until the new interface toolbars (and placement of the tab bar) is fully customizable, I definitely prefer--and exclusively use--the older interface (specifically, Aero Glass skin).

Brawnymike took my words. I think most Avant users use Avant because it's customizable. So make it fully customizable and we dont need the old UI anymore. Or make a version for each UI because i doubt it if it will ever work well with 2 UI's.

I'm still using the old Windows Traditional skin because I like my tabs on bottom, the Status Bar, and the other configurable buttons and bars. If it wasn't for the old skins I would have bailed on Avant when 2013 came available.

Hello everyone

I also preffer the old interface. I like to have all the options available. Not having to do right clicks or whatever to make menus appear. I hate that all browsers want to imitate chrome.

Still using old interface. Currently new skin is unusable for me. I think new skin will be great as soon as there are more customizations and the developer use more his imagination and listen to user suggestions to make something that looks new but keeps usability and accessibility and less just imitating popular browsers.

I prefer the old skins too . But some times i have to use the new skins (to see videos . . .) , i would like that the old skins have the same performance as the new skins and/or that the new skins can be as the old skins in terms of customization (that we can put all bars , all buttons , tabs ... where we want) .

I was getting some slowdowns and page rendering errors (famous purple "something went wrong double click the background to refresh page.." which seems to appear when disk or mem usage is high so firefox cant start itself and timesout or something which i noticed from my testing), also avant processes hanging and another smaller bugs, and i decided to give old version a try again. So i have "upgraded" back to 2012 build 197, nearly all bugs i had fixed, smaller memory usage (browser side), maybe some old minor bugs present but not as annoying as in 2013.
It was even possible to copy and overwrite new gecko engine from 2013 to 2012 b197 so didn't loose on rendering speed. Same with avant downloader :D
So im sticking to the old build untill 2013 is improved/fixed. Hope it will be soon [-o<
