"One of the Best Browsers"

February 09, 2009  |  By BMENON

 |  Version: Orca Browser 1.1 RC 3

Pros

Avant is the best IE based browser.and now Orca from Avant is the best based on Firefox engine.This has all the features of Avant and also of Firefox and its most secure browsing.

Cons

Nothing glaring cons. at this moment.

Summary

Those who like Avant and Firefox will like Orca. Orca is faster than Firefox and CPU memory usage is around 78000K compared to 90000K of Firefox 3.0.6;when three tabs opened.It supports Mozilla Firefox addons/extensions and has a Mozilla Addons Window in Tools.I installed WOT(Web of Trust-a Firefox Addon for showing secure ratings of Websites we surf).Usually its icon should be shown in the Address-bar,but in Orca it never shows anywhere,similarly other addons icons are also not found anywhere in Orca.There is an Add-ons Buttons-bar under View>Toolbars, but no method to show the icons in that bar.Under Help,the help file goes to Avant Forums which do not have any details of Orca. Such defects are to be looked-into.
