    "Good IE replacement"

    October 15, 2014  |   By wilecoyote72

    Version: Avant Browser 2015 build 1

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    None so far for me

    Summary

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

    "I like it!"

    July 14, 2014  |   By TECHCRZY

    Version: Avant Browser 2014 build 7

    Pros

    Fast with great rendering options built in add-ons. Add blocker works really well.

    Cons

    No additional add-ons available . When on youtube had problems going from full screen to minimized it would hang most the time.

    Summary

    Great browser that needs very little work. I recommend This Browser.

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

    June 4, 2014  |   By RetSailor_ITD

    Version: Avant Browser 2014 build 5

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

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

    Summary

    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!
