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.

    "Outstanding. Great option to IE, faster and reliable."

    Version: Avant Browser 2014 build 5


    Loads fast, downloads faster. I've been using it for almost 2 years and have yet to blow it up. Love the rendering options which is very helpful for working remote. More options than found in most browsers along with the ability to use IE rendering (for those sites that don't recognize it). Has IE beat hands down in my opinion. IE could learn from these programmers.


    Too many sites don't recognize it unless you run in rendering mode from the start.


    Stable and great option for IE. Even beats FireFox for options available. I would consider paying for it if it was required. It's my default browser over the several others I have available to me. Keep up the great work!
