    "I agree with jakebe2, this is a bad release."

    October 10, 2006  |   By ryork272


    The tabbed interface.


    Like jakebe2, I have used this product for several years. I have one question for Anderson (the developer): What were you thinking when you came out with this release!? This is horrible. I wrote him and told him so and said that I wanted to go back to the 10.58 release. He said to go to the "forum" and deal with this release. No dice Anderson. I uninstalled it and installed IE 7. Bye, bye Avant Browser! Avant lost all my setting, and of course, reset my home page to Avant. If CNET plans on purging all previous reviews of this product then they should also adjust the 'star' ratings to the latest reviews. The 4 1/2 stars are based on previous releases of the product. All reviews of the latest release have been negative.

    They are not purged, just hidden. All reviews for older versions are hidden until a new version is released, then the old reviews ar eshown until someone writes a new review. I personally got anouyed to heck from the last update with it losing all my settings, so if this update is going to do it again, forget it.
