Avant Browser ?

What is the general opinion on the Avant Browser, in relation to other browsers, and especially to Internet Explorer ?

With thanks.

I prefer it to IE and to that abomination that BT/Yahoo has come up with recently.

Give it a go, if you haven't already - it's free.

I love it. I like the way you can turn on and off the scripting on the 'fly' also I find it a lot faster than IE and it's much more configurable than IE.

I've tried Opera, Mozilla, Mozilla FireBird and Netscape, but keep going back to Avant.

I think Avant.........

......does not get enough publicity. For me (but not necessarily anyone else) it is the best.

Opera is not bad but cannot hold a candle to Avant for speed or displaying web pages the way the authors intended them to be seen. Many useful features too.

But, as I say, it may not be the same for everyone ---- just like anything else (eg. Me, AOL, XP, Grisoft, CD-RW disks, etc).

Try it and judge for yourself is the only way to learn if it is suitable for you, your rig and the way you have things set up.

Just one down-side, be careful on installing the AI-RoboForm option, you can accept or decline it at install. I found it did strange things on my system, so I removed it.

i did not get this while installing but notice its available to download as a plugin via view/roboform toolbar.

The original was offered at the first installation but they could have changed it in that case. BTW I have just upgraded to the latest version this morning.
