    "Internet Explorer Recharged!"

    September 3, 2005  |   By yongtw123


    Avant has everything you would expect from Internet Explorer. Avant is actually based on IE! So users can surf the web without compatibility problems like Firefox! Avant comes with pop-up blocker, tabbed browsing, session saving, enhanced security, etc etc. Users can choose to enable or disable browser features like ActiveX, Flash, JavaScript with only a few clicks. The best thing is that everything on web loads with no problems on Avant. With more features, the recharged and reloaded Avant is a superb choice to replace IE!


    Avant does not fully inherit IE's SP2 features, such as ActiveX alert, etc. One word of caution, Avant does NOT prevent you from getting bad stuff like spyware, adware, worms, etc into your computer. Avant has the same vulnerabilities as IE, so users should still exercise caution.
