What's the difference with Avant and Orca?

Besides that Orca is a standalone being "based on Firefox" other than "a skin for IE"? :)

Thats about it, they use different rendering engines. Orca uses the gecko engine and does not require IE to run.

WHOA!

Why didn't anyone tell me that there was a Geck-based Avant?! I'll have to install this on my dell as soon as I get the required ethernet!
