    The browser is very customizable, very fast, uses the same underlaying prsentation foundation as IE - but significantly faster and less memory required - like the skinning features!


    Strange setup in the search engine area - overcame that - but a newbie would have trouble here.


    Like the ability to re-open last pages after closing and recovery when it doesn't shut down gracefully. Find that it loads pages way faster than IE, Firefox and even Opera - a tough competitor - great for a computer literate person. Like the AVANT options in addition to the Internet options from IE. I have been using AVANT for quite a few months now and I have no intention of switching back to full blown IE, Firefox or Opera (Just use them to test my webpages for display issues). AVANT is and will remain my default browser.
