This addon will open any URL copied to your clipboard in a new window.

In order to prevent Avant from blocking access to the clipboard and complications with the pop up blocker... I had to put the script in a separate file. So you'll have to first extract the pastego.htm file in the following zip file to Avant's skins folder. C:\Program Files\Avant Browser\Skins *
pastego.zip

Then install the button,

[url=aba://forum.avantbrowser.com/download.php?id=1376]Click Here to Auto Install[/url]
...or download below,
PasteGo1_1.aba
(1.64 KiB) Downloaded 868 times
*Note: If you extract pastego.htm in a different location, you'll have to edit the buttons path. Tools > Avant Browser Options > Add-ons > Add-ons, highlight Paste & Go, click Edit

Thanks bigC - just a quick observation, the link opens in the browser which is set as default browser, which may not necessarily be the browser you are using.

Thanks Kudos, I didn't think about that. I uploaded a new version that will always open the url in Avant regardless of what the default browser is set to.

The zip has not changed, you just have to reinstall the button(delete the old one first). :wink:
