    "Nice and clean, but..."

    June 1, 2009  |   By edbrady

    Version: Avant Browser 11.7 build 31

    Pros

    I've enjoyed Avant ever since I discovered it. And I've been with it for years. It is a clean, easy to use browser/

    Cons

    It has started to get as bloated as Internet Explorer. And, as a result, it has slowed down.

    Summary

    I'll continue to use it. But, if it gets any slower, I'll find an alternative. Which I'd rather not do.

    "My choice as an alternative to IE"

    June 1, 2009  |   By edentonbill

    Version: Avant Browser 11.7 build 31

    Pros

    Loads sites quickly, easy to use interface, no quirky html displays, integrated search engines.

    Cons

    Nothing to really dislike; clearly better than Internet Explorer even though built on same platform.

    Summary

    I use Mozilla Firefox or builds off Firefox (Flock) primarily, but this is the browser of choice if I'm comparing web page handling across platforms. So much faster than IE and none of the strange loading characteristics IE sometimes displays.

    "I love this browser."

    May 28, 2009  |   By Stoneman527

    Version: Avant Browser 11.7 build 31

    Pros

    It has all of the good parts of IE without the bad.

    Cons

    I occassionally have a problem with the browser freezing (not responding). There doesn't seem to be a pattern to the freezing. I am running vista.

    Summary

    It is free and frequently updated. Download it. You won't regret it.

    "Avant is Thoughtful"

    May 27, 2009  |   By trancegroup

    Version: Avant Browser 11.7 build 31

    Pros

    Great UI, superb options and tab control. Avant is a smart browser, and the designers bring together a thoughtful, friendly, sharp looking, resourceful platform with clean and decisive coding.

    Cons

    I think this is a really trivial complaint but the skins could use some deviant behavior!

    Summary

    I have been using Avant from the beginning and like everyone else I appreciate the speed of access to multiple sites simultaneously. With small bugs getting promptly corrected Avant keeps getting better and better. Compared to other popular browsers, Avant is the most convenient by far; and if you dial in the preferences carefully, it provides a stable environment for every aspect of your online experience.

    Version: Avant Browser 11.7 build 31

    Pros

    Mas que intuitivo, super intuitivo y facilisimo de configurar, ademas de su almacenamiento en linea.

    En ocasiones se muestra como inestable, como si luchara contra Ie,

    Generalmente opera de maravilla, he usado el crome, el fire fox, el opera, naturalmente el Ie y me quedo con Avant-Browser, Genial. Gracias Anderson Che, por tu esfuerzo, puesto a los cybernautas.

    "I like it very much."

    May 26, 2009  |   By jraz77

    Version: Avant Browser 11.7 build 31

    Pros

    As an Explorer clone it work very good with the hebrew language, almost better than Firefox with IE tab. So I use both of them Avant and Firefox. Fire fox with it's extensions is a better Browser.

    Cons

    Nothing special to mention

    "Anything's Better than IE"

    May 25, 2009  |   By Taegugki

    Version: Avant Browser 11.7 build 31

    Pros

    Ease of use, faster and less bloated than IE

    Cons

    Prone to IE like crashes and freezes...

    Summary

    If you hate IE like me and are looking for an alternative this is the browser for you. Living in South Korea, a lot of the South Korean websites are IE compliant and will not work with Firefox or Opera or Safari, therefore discovering IE was a godsend to me, it allows me to access 98% of South Korean websites, and for those 2% of the websites here that insist upon IE usage, I don't visit again...So if you're living in a country where IE is still king and the alternatives aren't compliant, this is the browser for you...
