start speed

Post by mathman » Thu Mar 24, 2011 9:59 pm

I use both Avant and Orca and have the same home page for both. I have noticed recently that when starting Avant it seems to take much longer to load than Orca. Is this a bug or simply a design difference?

You should compare the loading speed of Avant with IE or IE based browser or Avant previous versions. AVant and Orca use different engines.

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.

I have just carried out a thorugh timing test for startup, using the same startup page (my gmail inbox) for the following browsers.
1) Avant - all three available versions: 2010 - build 131, (which is what I am now using), 2011 - alpha 1, 11.7 build 46. All versions took the same amount of time - 35 seconds.
2) Orca - 10 seconds.
3) IE8 - 12 seconds.

There is obviously something wrong with Avant in this respect.

During carrying out this test , had you cleared history before comparing the loading speed between Avant and IE8?

As Avant and IE8 share the same temporary files, one shoud remove all browsing history before testing. Go to Internet Options->Browsing history and click Delete... button everytime before carrying out a test. All go to the Temporary Internet Files folder to remove all files inside before carrying out the test.

The browser tested later profits from the loaded temporary files.

i got rid of the Temporary Internet files and it made no real difference. Latest results (my computer is having a slow day today):
Avant 40 sec., IE8 15 sec., Orca 17 sec,

Latest test on Avant was for 2010 build 131. I observed in my previous tests (above) all three available versions of Avant took about the same time, so I didn't test the others.

I have just switched to a new computer, which is much faster and is on Windows 7. The old computer is windows xp. On the new computer there isn't any apparent speed problem.
