"A poor copy of FireFox & Opera"

January 29, 2005  |  By neo_1

 |  Version: Avant Browser 10.0 build 35

Cons

Since Avant is not a true browser, just a shell for IE, it inherits all of IE security holes.

Also, stability is quite poor... Avant crashed on me when I tried to launch it right after installing.

That bodes poorly for the program...

If you want tabbed browsers that are secure AND stable, I recommend FireFox or Opera.

If you MUST use IE, then give Maxthon a try... it's much more stable and robust.

The developer of Maxthon also tries to patch IE's inherent security holes, within Maxthon, before Microsoft does for IE.

I find that commendable...

"fantastic - love it"

January 27, 2005

 |  Version: Avant Browser 10.0 build 35

Summary

I wanted to use firefox but it was really slow (strangely) on my PC. Someone suggested I use this and it is superb. It downloads and installs really quick. And then all it needs is a little tweaking of the toolbars and your off. fantastic

"Excellent browser, extremely fast!"

January 26, 2005  |  By Electrolyte

 |  Version: Avant Browser 10.0 build 35

Summary

This has to be the best browser I have ever used. It is very fast at loading webpages and starting up, has a decent GUI (with plenty more skins available) and can even block adverts! Top notch!

"Very Good!"

January 26, 2005

 |  Version: Avant Browser 10.0 build 35

Summary

It's a very good browser, with XML reader, pop-up blocker, advertising blocker and tabs. You can zoom images and the site too.

Becaus it runs using IE engine, you get FULL compatibility with all websites in the world. Why use Mozilla/Firefox whe you can get MORE!

"Great I.E. alternative"

January 24, 2005

 |  Version: Avant Browser 10.0 build 35

Summary

This is essentially internet explorer with tabbed browsing and an ad blocker, as such its pretty much every thing I want from a browser. My only major complaint is that it doesn't autocomplete for favorites like I.E. does, other than that I love it.

"I was very impressed!!! A+ Browser"

January 24, 2005

 |  Version: Avant Browser 10.0 build 35

Summary

I've tried Firefox, Netscape and of course, IE and this is better than all of them put together. It's fast, stable and the features are GREAT. You see pages full screen and other cool features. I highly suggest anyone who wants a great browser to give this a try.

"This Avant Browser is........ FANTASTIC!!! #1"

January 24, 2005

 |  Version: Avant Browser 10.0 build 35

Summary

The only other browsers i ever used were internet explorer and aol's browser and they both sucked! Avant's browser loads the pages with super speed and I dont get any pop ups on it. Plus you can see how much percent it takes for each page to pen when you go into a website. I love this browser. I would like to thank whoever created this browser for doing a wonderful job! Thanks and keep up the grrrrrrrrr8 work! :-)
