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.

    "Good IE replacement"

    October 15, 2014   |   By wilecoyote72

    Version: Avant Browser 2015 build 1


    I admit I am a online video hog. I can watch one video while downloading two others and I had firefox and chrome freeze up on me alot. Tried Avant and no issues.


    None so far for me


    Good IE replacement. I don't like IE at all and was using another browser in its place til I found this little jewel.
