Avant Browser

CNET Editors' review

Starting from the Internet Explorer engine, Avant Browser adds useful capabilities, such as grouped favorites, an RSS reader, and tabbed browsing. The first thing we noticed upon launch was the aesthetically pleasing skin that came as the default with Avant Browser, but you can choose from among many preloaded skins in the Tools menu. The tabbed-browsing feature lets you quickly switch among Web sites, rather than having to shuffle through several browser instances in the Windows taskbar. If you visit several Favorites often, you can save them as a group and open the whole group with one click. When you shut down the program, Avant Browser remembers which windows were open and launches them the next time it starts up. You also can automatically refresh all windows, or only the current one, at regular intervals. A simple pop-up blocker works in most cases, but it was powerless against some floating banners and other, more obscure pop-up methods. Overall, we found Avant Browser a great alternative to Internet Explorer, with useful features that make browsing even more efficient.

    Version: Avant Browser 2013 build 107

    Pros

    Nice from any one who offers a free browser with all the efforts involved, but with that everything is said.
    Thanks for the efforts!

    Cons

    Never managed with this browser all over the years and every time removed it again after a short while.
    will stay with Chrome and Firefox ,the only reasonable ones in my eyes.

    Summary

    Not recommended but you may discover things I did not.

    "Great Broiwser - used and supported for years BUT!"

    May 5, 2013  |   By zone8

    Version: Avant Browser 2013 build 107

    Pros

    Superb for all my browsing - far better than any other at least for me BUT

    Cons

    Latest version has moved bookmarks to right side - hate it ... really hate it, so have reinstalled previous version. Latest also changed all my settings, icon sizes and types and so forth. Really disappointed with these changes. Unless it changes back - will have to opt out of using this. Have used for many years but latest changes - especially losing settings and having to re-do them all, is a real PITA. The Bookmarks sidebar move to RH side is totally unacceptable for me. Not just a nuisance - I really mean unacceptable.

    Summary

    Great browser but latest update is awful. Please change it back immediately, if not sooner.

    Updated on Jun 6, 2013

    Should mention I have made donations from time to time to support this.
