Avant Browser 11.7 Build 21 SR2 & SR3 - big performance hit

Post by pdecrocq » Fri Jan 23, 2009 4:37 pm

Since I installed Avant Browser 11.7 Build 21 SR2 and SR3, I have noticed a big performance impact to the point the mouse moves slower while AB is loaded.
I have seen other posts that report similar problems.
There must be something changed there.
So far, I rolled back to Avant Browser 11.7 Build 21 (no SR) and everything works fine.

I agree, may try the roll-back to see. Where are those hidden again?

And on a sidenote. I havent noticed this on SR1 or SR2.

Actually in SR3.. I can see alittle of what your talking about.. But so far.. its not bothering me.. That might change though..

ftboomer, What's your Windows version? XP?
Could anyone with Vista confirm this problem?

You're saying that when AB is running, The mouse cursor moves slowly? Does it happen outside of AB as well?
Does this happen on every website?

Yes the more I use SR3.. THe more annoying this mouse thing is getting.. Its like the mouse is lagging when it hovers over Avant.. So you move the mouse and theres a delay before the cursor moves.. And yes this is on Vista SP1. I had to revert to SR2.
