Okay, with RoboForm I agree with you.

But what is with the tabs bar? Why isn't it possible to use these buttons, if I don't use the window tabs bar? Because if I want to use the windows tabs, I would prefer IE7.0 and not Avant!

Especially the window tabs bar works for Cristal SVG :roll: =>

Currently the system buttons are wedded to the tabs bar. There have been multiple requests to separate them. I prefer the tabs on the bottom and the system buttons on the top like they used to be. The buttons you are seeing in compact view control the whole browser, not just the window--like the red X and the other two in the full view.

BTW, why use a tabbed browser if you don't want the tab bar?

i tried putting the skin-maker in the skin directory of avant, , but avant can't even open the default skin that is supplied with the skin-maker.

btw, there is no crystal skin in the skin maker. maybe you gave me the wrong version of the skin maker?

I gave you the link for an earlier beta release by mistake--that'll teach me to answer posts at 3 AM!

Very easy question and easier to answer: :roll:

I'm using the tab-function (open 5 or 10 pages in one window) but without the tab bar. I prefer to switch between the sveral tabs by the tab bar buttons.

-you mean you use tabs without seeing them?

Exactly! :D

I prefer this, because in this way, my useable browser window is as big as possible. With the tab bar my browser window is is nearly 1cm smaller than without it.

Last answer, because I don't like to continue with your spam! ](*,)

If I'm using F11, it's impossible to navigate between the different tabs!! :roll:

You can use Ctrl+Tab. I view the tab bar, but generally use Ctrl+Tab to switch between tabs.
