Editors' Review

+

Avant Browser Ultimate combines the three most popular Web browser engines -- Chrome, Firefox, and Internet Explorer -- in one app, allowing you to switch between them with just two clicks, without needing to have any of those browsers installed on your computer. There is also an impressive array of customizations and advanced features that can make your Web browsing more efficient.

Pros

Three-in-one Web browser: With a single button located at the end of the address bar, Avant Browser Ultimate enables you to choose which engine to use on the page: Firefox, Internet Explorer, or Chrome. Even better, you can have different pages displayed using different engines in the same window.

Side-by-side comparison: You can view multiple site tabs at once in the same window by placing them side by side. This can be very helpful if you're a Web developer and want to compare how your site looks in different Web browsers.

Highly customizable: Since Avant Browser doesn't support all third-party Web browser extensions, the developers have tried to ensure that all popular functionality is present in the app itself. This includes things like a password manager, page translation, mouse gestures, cloud backup, ad and Flash blocker, auto refresh, and even a video downloader.

Cons

Buggy: During our tests, we regularly ran into Chrome engine errors although that didn't crash our system or the app itself. Another bug that we discovered is that you cannot open a blank new tab -- it will always load the site that you were looking at prior to pressing the "New Tab" button.

Limited extension support: Although the app sports three of the most popular Web browser engines under its hood, not all extensions for the three platforms can be installed and used successfully. In our tests we've had a 60 percent success rate when trying to add extensions to the browser.

Bottom Line

Avant Browser Ultimate is a good companion for Web developers since it allows rapid testing and comparison between different browser engines. You should also give this free app a go, if you're not happy with your current Web browser and are looking for something different and more powerful.

"Absolute rubbish browser"

May 22, 2016  |  By andreas_uk

2016-05-22 02:20:49  |  By andreas_uk

 |  Version: Avant Browser Ultimate 2016 build 005

Pros

In the past this browser was the best one could find. Reasons were the easy switch between different search engines (Firefox,chrome,IE) and the wonderful feature of storing passwords easily. That is the PAST. NOW the Avant Browser has deteriorated to a totally unusable sw, see below in cons.

Cons

This so called browser has deteriorated to total crap.For one the developers were not able to integrate search engines properly into Avant browser ultimate. The Firefox engine considers EVERY google website as unsafe and blocks the access completely ! If you install Firefox stand-alone - there is NO such problem, so this is a Avant Browser issue. This and all other problems appear consistently on 3 different type of PC's (notebooks, PC's) and on W7 as well as on the W10 OS. Furthermore it seems the Avant SW is badly designed anyway, because the browser crashes every now and then. Be it an address violation, be it also a very common error message called Gecko engine failure. So this browser is now beyond usable and i only keep it to pick up my passwords and I moved to Opera, Chrome,IE11 and so forth.
Last point, I use high resolution screen with 3840x2160 pixels. ALL SW can cope with this and delivers perfect clear picture. Avant browser is UNABLE to deal with this and is blur.

Summary

Forget it and do not install it - it was once good and is now rubbish.

"Great Browser"

January 16, 2016

2016-01-16 16:38:13

 |  Version: Avant Browser Ultimate 2016 build 002

Pros

Fast Stable Clean Safe and Customizable. Has a way to have a open in new tab icon on bookmarks. Video downloader. Accelerated Downloads. No memory leak and light on resources.

Cons

Shockwave always crashes.

Summary

Great browser safe to download from main website the people that say it gives you unwanted bad stuff may need to look deeper cause it may not be the browser it could by the download source like sourceforge.net for the one that had the sourceforge threat. Just talk to some experts before you accuse browsers or programs for infecting and do some research would not hurt as well.

"Best Browser Period."

March 08, 2015  |  By PatrickDevaney

2015-03-08 11:08:24  |  By PatrickDevaney

 |  Version: Avant Browser Ultimate 2015 build 10

Pros

I've been using this browser for 7 months now. I stumbled across it while looking for Auto Filling features in a browser. I was sick of typing username and passwords while using a laptop keyboard in a dark room. What I fouind after trying Chrome (incrediablyslow), Opera (also slow), was Avant. If you go to the same web pages where you need to login, this browser is for you. Chrome will also automatically fill in your username and password but programs like CCleaner (best cleaning program by the way) will wipe those username and passwords out. There is a 64-Bit version of Chrome called Canary but it is slower than Avant. You can use online storage so you can login to your home Avant settings from any computer you only have to install Avant on the other computer and login. Simple controls for changing the veiw % of a tab, so you can see the whole page, without affecting the other tabs. Try this browser you will love this browser. Simply put, the fastest browser period.

Cons

Only problems have been some text on a few webstes appear messed up but the links still work. Also, you need to set the rendering engine to the lastest IE11 (current) standards in order to log into some secure websites but this is simple to do.

Summary

Great Browser

"The hidden jewel!! Progressive, Powerful, and Stable!!"

October 30, 2014  |  By Athenaspassion

2014-10-30 00:26:44  |  By Athenaspassion

 |  Version: Avant Browser Ultimate 2015 build 5

Pros

Stable, Reliable, Powerful yet Simple, Universal, Private, Secure, Almost Unnoticeable, Originality, Uses the Least Amount of System Memory of all browsers and they had the Cloud b4 the Cloud. They update often. They also seem ahead of there time, often being well equipped for the ever changing dynamic of cyber space.

Cons

Is it perfect? No, Nothing is.. As with all software, there were a few issues a few years back. But I have always had a pleasant experience. The cons of the past were just growing pains, I feel. I have been using browsers since they first existed. This being my favorite of them all!

Summary

I have been a user of Avant Browser for many years now. To tell the truth, I never even knew the capability of Avant until other choices forced me to find reliability.. I had originality acquired Avant for a couple key abilities and the fact it was stable. What I got was so much more, and has grown ever more in its abilities, and stability. I find myself Amazed at Avant's ability to stay almost unnoticed and yet win a slew of awards and great reviews. A relief so to speak.. Once everyone takes notice, things can get ruined. Thank you Avant and the Person/People/Team and donators that made it what it is today!

"Prone to crashing&when it does it crashes your computer"

April 19, 2014  |  By AspieMum

2014-04-19 03:09:46  |  By AspieMum

 |  Version: Avant Browser Ultimate 2014 build 002

Pros

More than one browser in one browser. If the page doesn't work in say Firefox you can easily re-load it in IE or chrome.

Cons

Ever so often it crashes. When it crashes your computer freezes. You use control Alt Delete & then all options just give you a black screen. Only way out: turn off with power button- that broke my laptops wireless adapter on one of those occasions.

Summary

The benefits do not outway the risks of using this software. I've had to permanently uninstall it. When it works its brilliant but once it starts crashing it keeps crashing even if uninstalled & re-installed.

"Liking a lot but their refining broke too much"

April 12, 2014  |  By xelos

2014-04-12 07:43:55  |  By xelos

 |  Version: Avant Browser Ultimate 2014 build 002

Pros

Multiple explorers in one and you can use addons if you take the time to explore and find where they are. Quick load time.

Cons

Not intuitive, windows + right or left key no longer works with new releases, browser toolbars are not friendly with resizing your window where they get jumbled or disappear (maximize usually disappears when you make window smaller)

Summary

I like the browser but with the new release and the non-compatible window it makes it hard to love it. Give it a shot if you have time and patience to explore...just keep the window maximized heh

"Do You Have Time To Waste?"

October 29, 2013  |  By Smeaga31

2013-10-29 17:12:00  |  By Smeaga31

 |  Version: Avant Browser Ultimate 2013 build 118

Pros

It works.
It's Free.

Cons

Convoluted and bloaty.

Summary

I gave This a fair shot and can see why so many like it however, I am trying to move away from bloat and at my age I am a little tired of learning new software. I have never ran across a web site in my life that required the use of Firefox. It seems that with Comodo Dragon & IE 10 I have all I need as far as browsers are concerned. IE comes with windows as a default and Comodo is better than Chrome. I just don't have time to waste or the inclination to learn a new browser. If you need all three engines and have time to waste then this is probably the best choice. For us regular people who just surf once in awhile in normal type places, this is just too much and it's kinda ugly (IMHO).
