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.

"Avant is a fast loading full-featured browser"

December 12, 2005  |  By FredMars

 |  Version: Avant Browser 10.1 build 30

Pros

One hand surfing! I can navigate back and forth, open new pages in either foreground or background, can even scroll to a tab I want using the wheel!

I can exit and save all open pages, and when I return to the browser, it will prompt me to open all/any/none of the pages I last visited when I shut down the browser.

Updates are easy and fast. In all of the versions since I first used this browser, I can only remember one that casued me any problems, and I still think it may have been an OS problem and NOT Avant browser.

Pros

I like the tabbed view, good pop up blocker, excellent capacity to open multi tabs without any hitch as also the good interface.

Cons

A few more feautures like showing the number of tabs opened, color scheme for the opened tabs and non opened ones, some more nice skins would be appreciated.

"A Great Browser."

December 07, 2005  |  By brucejlk

 |  Version: Avant Browser 10.1 build 30

Pros

I downloaded Avant on my Laptop and never looked back. The look is great, and that makes it very appealing to use. Not only that but it barely takes up any space, and has some different options that the other browsers don't have.

Avant is very user friendly, and you have nothing to lose - so give this one a shot!

"Very fast browser, no bugs, easy to use, good popup blocking"

November 26, 2005  |  By andreastzio

 |  Version: Avant Browser 10.1 build 30

Pros

Much faster than IE, faster than Opera, and in general faster than eny other brwoser I've seen. Features are not that revolutionary, but everything is easy to use and intuitive - I've found them largely sufficient for my needs. Have not yet seen any single bug. Very efficient ad and pop-up blocking. The tabs work very well, and everything is quite customizable.

Cons

I've seen it hang some times, but not sure whether it's the browser or the viewed page causing this... But in any case, just kill AB then restart - it'll take you to the pages you were viewing ==> no trace lost!
