    "Fast stable and easy to use"

    September 4, 2012  |   By bella2011111

    Pros

    A superb surprise.
    Handy buttons for switching with ease between different engines.
    Perfect integration of advantages of firefox,chrome and ie.
    Compatible with a variety of plugins of ie and extensions of firefox.
    Adorable complementary features such as video sniffer, detaching tab, separating view, online storage feature, autofill and rss reader. Without those amazing features I can't breathe ^^

    Cons

    What has surprised me as well is the skinmaker keeps unchanged a bit. The aero glass skin is already there, why can't you allow users to contribute their intelligence for making some interesting skins for Avant browser?

    Summary

    In my impression, Avant Browser has emerged since 2001, followed by a gecko based browser with same interface and features. Throughout the years, I have never stopped switching between different browsers for searching out the best one as well as for trying some novelties. You know what,after installing avant browser 2012, it surprised me again as many years ago when I first came across Avant and Orca. This time it comes with three engines. After a few hours of usage, I uninstalled firefox and chrome which have never been removed from my machine. You know though chrome is fast it happens quite often that some pages can't open alright in it and another shortage is that it consumes too fast my memery.Firefox has its advantage in managing memory,nevertheless,mozilla team hasn't found a solution for the memory leak. I don't mean to attribute the problems to the limited capabilites of both companies. My demand for the satisfactory browser involves a balance between firefox and chrome. Avant Browser made it. I can choose to use gecko,webkit or trident with ease as the options for toggling between these engines are handy.

    The performance of the browser is excellent, however, some other aspects such as skins, help documents need yet updating.
