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.

"I Don't Get It.."

April 20, 2015  |  By galet09

 |  Version: Avant Browser 2015 build 10

Pros

I'm thinking. May take awhile.

Cons

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.

Summary

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.
