Editors' Review

+

Avant Browser leverages the rendering engine power behind Internet Explorer, Chrome, and Firefox to provide you with the fastest possible Web browsing experience.

Pros

Switching render engines: To switch, you just right-click a Web page and then make your selection from the menu. Switching between rendering engines accelerates loading on even highly trafficked sites.

Ad blocker: Avant Browser has a quick-starting ad blocker.

Browsing speed: Avant was as fast or faster than the default browsers installed on the test system. The program also isolates crashed pages to a single tab, so you can close it and resume browsing without slowdown.

Cons

Not as attractive: The Web has become an extremely visual medium, with design and clarity becoming more important all the time. Avant brings to mind Microsoft design sensibilities rather than the cleaner browser windows of Firefox or Chrome.

Bottom Line

Avant speeds up browsing in certain cases, and the ad blocker functionality is always welcome. However, if aesthetics are a high priority, you may want to consider other browsers first.

"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 04, 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!
