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.


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.


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.

"When Not Freezing up, it's good... not great"

June 11, 2015  |  By QiGongMstr

 |  Version: Avant Browser 2015 build 10


It is fast and fairly easy to customize.


When checking my log in information in Facebook, it registers as IE (Internet Explorer). This browser, even with pop-up blocker, and AD Blocker activated, I get more adware trackers than I did with Opera.
The fact is, I got really tired of the browser freezing up on me, so I deleted it.


If you're an IE user and want something easier to manage than IE, this will be good for you. If you're in need of something reliable and with better security, keep searching.

"I Don't Get It.."

I'm thinking. May take awhile.


Constant IE script errors just by going to the Facebook login screen for example. Before I did ANYTHING. Hard to figure out where the internet options were, and at one point it locked up and I to call up task manager to close the dang thing.


First of all if I had realized that this piece of trash uses the Internet Explorer engine renderer I would have NEVER downloaded it. It said in the description that you could right click and choose Firefox renderer or Chrome. Neither one of those were listed only I.E. I NEVER liked I.E. it's the WORST most unstable browser I've ever tried to use. So obviously then since Avant only uses I.E.'s engine this browser was useless to me. I can't even use Internet Explorer btw, without some huge problems going on. I don't understand how over 2,000 users rated this 5 stars, I don't get it.
