Firefox 3.5 and Orca 1.1

Post by statm1 » Wed Jul 01, 2009 1:09 am

I'm sure someone is going to have questions about whether Orca is going to be upgraded to use the version of the gecko engine that comes with Firefox 3.5. The answer is yes but that it will take a week or two extra to get released due to heavy development of Avant Browser 12.

I do not have a specific date and my one to two week release date is subject to change.

Feel free to post any questions in this topic and I'll do my best to get them answered.

If Orca is going to use the new Gecko engine (v1.9.1) and have the new features of Avant v12, will the Orca version be updated to v1.5 or even v2.0?

Can you find out if "Private Browsing" will be implemented.

Yes Avant 12 will have its own private browsing feature.. I would think since Anderson likes to keep the code base between Avant and Orca fairly similar that Orca will also in turn have a private browsing mode. As for the version number of Orca, I will have to find that out..

Thanks. As you are in contact with Anderson, can you find out if the portable versions will support online storage.

I've asked Anderson. He said both Avant and Orca USB version will support online storage.

Please provide the following information before reporting problems:

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.

Yes, thanks for confirming Jasmine. Another question is can we have a list of what Avant features will be missing in Orca? I miss the "save screen/page/region as image" and the "use IE proxy settings" features. There's more but I can't remember them at the moment.

Yes "save screen/page/region as image" will be added to Orca 2.0 which will be the version of Orca that will include most if not all of Avant 12's new features.. But, no it won't be added to 1.1. Using the IE proxy setting is alittle ify.. That will be going in the request list.

Thanks - looks like Orca v2 will be on equal footing with Avant v12 - yay!
Proxy settings already requested here.
Any preview screenshots yet?

Thanks for clearing up the question to private browsing as that's the one I am mostly curious as of the moment. So far, I am drawing blank on what questions or feature that I am interested at. :think:

Hey AXEMAN, see this article: How to Enter Proxy Settings in Firefox
As for AntiVirus/AntiSpyware FireFox addons, try Dr.Web anti-virus link checker
But most antivirus programs should work well with Firefox..
