Are all versions of Avant compatible with IE9?

What do you mean? They are both browsers, it's like asking is a Honda compliant with 2012 Toyota.
Avant is based upon the IE engine.

I presume you don't realize that Avant is not a stand alone browser, but is a front end to IE.

Thank you. I am using 2010 build 131, so I presume I should stay with IE8 until a new version of Avant (not test version) is ready.

I'm conservative when it comes to new software. I prefer not to use beta versions of anything.

I've pretty much always trusted the Avant betas......but there have been a few where I have gone back to released versions.............I try to keep a trusted version in my downloads saved 'just in case'.........

Actually my real concern is with IE9. I like to wait a while before I use it. Does Avant perform any better on IE9? My main disappointment with Avant recently is that it is several times slower in starting in comparison with Orca or IE8.
