    "never managed with this browser"

    May 12, 2013  |   By hbdmesq

    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.
    who knows

    "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.

    Pros

    This is a browser with smallest size I ever used.Cute but with fast speed and low Memory usage.No other IE based browser can compare with Avant.

    Cons

    I just installed IE10 in win7, but the rendering engine still show IE9.When will you support IE10?

    Summary

    If you like using IE or IE based browser. Avant is the best choice for you.

    "Still my favorite"

    November 22, 2012  |   By pangdudu

    Version: Avant Browser 2012 build 189

    Pros

    Well,I have been using Avant for several years now.It's still my favorite and default browser. I just use the basic features of a browser.Maybe that's the reason I don't have many problems? Speed is fast and use less Memory.These are really important for my old computer.

    Cons

    No big problem.

    Summary

    The ones who like using maxthon may like this browser too. They both don't have beautiful skin but with fast speed and many a useful build-in features.

    "OK, OK, OK, OK, OK,"

    November 20, 2012  |  

    Version: Avant Browser 2012 build 189

    Pros

    OK, OK, OK, OK, OK,

    Cons

    Something in the latest version seems to be keeping me from opening .asp documents. I'll resolve this eventually. It may not even be related to the browser. Oother computers handle .asp documents no problem.

    Summary

    Ok
