To be honest, I can't see it happening any time soon. Avant Browser only has one developer and AFAIAA, there are no plans for a non-Windows version.

I don't think that Avant Browser is available for Mac.
Though there's a Mac version of Internet Explorer that probably will open websites properly.
Check this out.

(Internet Explorer for Mac only works on OS 9 Macs and earlier, not OS X. As you may guess therefore it's pretty outdated now, though at one time it was the best browser available.)

I replied to a copycat thread, with a solution to have Avant Browser working within Mac OS X on an Intel Macintosh.

viewtopic.php?t=19508

WARNING!! This solution is not free. :( But will leave your Intel Mac open to running other Windows Software.

And brought it to the forefront in the process.

Still, doesn't hurt to add a link to the other post.
