Just some features that Avant has but Orca doesn't:

File >> Save Screen/Page/Region as Image
Page right-click >> Create Shortcut

Feel free to add more.

functional disable = at least 1:1 to avant:
having pictures disabled
- orca does not show pictures but instead some of them shows their alt text directly into page (in avant are empty image rectangles with alt bubbles - both acceptable), now call context menu / reload image - nothing happens = comparing to avant you must enable pictures first (and also orca has no hotkey for this enable/disable); view image opens new tab with image only
[- happened (i'm testing it short time only) even had checked disable pictures they were visible (program restart helped)]
[- http://www.google.com does not show any picure - but also no picture context menu at picture area (anyway alt text bubble ('google') is displayed there) - the same with avant]
if i can recommend something new generaly:
- i would like black and white lists related to enable/disable to be f.e. able to see flash at youtube only (rest disabled by disable-flash, youtube in white list) but be able quickly enable flash everywhere (except possible black list) by uncheck disable-flash; independent lists for javacript etc.
- default minimal representation of image with no alt text, f.e. 'no alt text' bubble, to easier find point to open it's context menu (in avant i could select part of page to see where hidden pictures are) - try it with this forum avatars with both browsers
- reload all (pictures, everything disabled) at actual page (only)
- (configurable) hotkeys for enable/disable (generaly for all possible actions)
[feel free move this all also to another forum]

I think that Orca should have multi language support also for Windows from Firefox like extensions, printing etc.

because I couldn't edit my post i will write new one here
If we want to update firefox windows with our language than we should download language pack or firefox and install it, go to Mozilla Firefox\chrome and copy files with your language id, in my case pl.jar, pl.manifest
http://w95.wrzuta.pl/sr/f/5piwxeG2OpT/firefox_pl
Copy it into Orca Browser\chrome and delete en-US.jar and en-US.manifest

Wooow... I REALLY want this feature!

"File >> Save Screen/ Whole Page /Region as Image"

I used the GreenBrowser, based in Ie, for a loong time, and I always used this option. It really helps save proof of contact forms, proofs of products info and details that you saw in some store, well, a lot of moments. Please insert it! I always check in new releases of Orca's. I still use GB sometimes because of this, and another thing:

Favorite Options:
"Set a different location for Favorite's Folder"

GB has it. I have a second HD, where i put all my stuffs, so I can format any time my windows HD and every thing are safe! There I keep my Favs Folder, because I have A LOT, a library of links! Every time I add something to Orca's I forget to copy to my HD and loose every link! It really sucks. And have to add all the links again to the fav bar. Sucks 2.

Btw, thank you guys, for this great Browser!! I love Orca! Love it's icon (simbol, logo), beautiful idea! But please insert this features so I can say goodbye to GB!

Oh, and there's one more thing always use in GB:

For tabs bar
"Close all tabs from left"
"Close all tabs from right"

Really useful! :wink:

And please, I have some questions, I don't know if there is a option for these:

1- Is there a way to make the download window close automatically when all downloads are finished?
2- Can I open anytime all the last session's tabs or just when I open Orca? Just one by one at the "re-open" icon? Because usually, some sites don't get saved, dont know why. It occurs in GB too, but there I can reopen, there's an option in the "re-open tab icon" called "configure > last visiteds".

Sorry keep mentioning this browser. But i really like Orca's, i meant to use only it! But i need that features, unfortunately, for real. So i gotta use them both.

Thanks!

Aren't the same function "Close tabs on the left" and "Close tabs on the right" available in avant browser 2012 build 8?
Turn to the latest avant browser,I doubt orca browser will be upgraded.

>> Thank you for this! But there's no way to make it easy? every time I wanna change I have to make all this way out? : P Could have a simple check box down the window, like the normal IE download window.

>> Yeah, but there you can only open one-by-one tab. And like I said, sometimes some links do not keep listed there. : /
Could have a option to open that window that appears when browser starts, with all the last pages visited.

Just when you open orca. Unless you close all the tabs at the same time(right click>close all) and then click the un-do button, it will open all tans you closed.
