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.
