This used to be my work browser of choice back in 2005-2010. Sadly, while it's still an ongoing concern, in terms of design and UI it's clearly a browser from a former decade of computing, and maybe even a previous millennium. Not only that but the much-touted Tri-engine support apparently doesn't work; in my use-case it failed to work with Microsoft Sharepoint using the IE engine, rendering the look of the page but failing to provide any of the functionality.
I'm consigning this to history now. Farewell, Avant.
Avant was a first favorite Browsers away from Internet Explorer, AOL, and Netscape. I appreciated its smooth modern look and performance, but I extra appreciated the navigation bar button that would toggle images on/off. A simple thing was truly appreciated!! they dropped that button .... lured away by Firefox with its bells & whistle add-ons that included toggling images. Sidetracking here.. went on to Firefox's early UnSandboxed hell, then Chrome, the savior of stability, and abandoned Firefox since. Google/Chrome became a behemoth and people look for privacy. So, I took a trip down Memory Lane to Avant. Avant made a lot of progress with split views, Session Management, tri-rendering engine, etc but never got on the extension bandwagon, nor developed any other distinct and generally useful feature. The last release runs on the Microsoft Edge/Internet Explorer engine which I don't want to use.
If you are still using Windows XP, you have to know that Avant Browser 2017 build 5, released in March 2017, is the last version which supports the OS.
I hate using chrome as it consumes too much memory every time I start it even though only two pages are open. I prefer avant browser with firefox engine set as the default one. It runs faster and saves memory. However, now and then I will switch to ie and chrome engines if a page doesn't render alright. Sometimes I may define the sites with rendering problem to be rendered by ie or chrome engine by default. it's transparent to me as avant does so automatically as long as I have set the sites in the avant browser options. Try it, you may fall in love with it as I do.
One of the couple tri-core browsers that uses Internet Explorer's Trident, Mozilla's Gecko, & Chrome's Webkit rendering engines. One interesting feature is that you can set which websites to render in specific core engine. For example, if I want to update Windows by going to update.microsoft website, Avant Browser Ultimate allows you to predetermine which sites to use a specific rendering engine to maximize compatibility. So you can update your Windows with this browser, but this means more compatibility across the web in general as some sites work with certain engines better. The browser also exhibits low memory usage. It has a built-in ad blocker, of course a pop-up blocker. As far as extensions are concerned, I didn't test it out.
I came across this browser on the Internet ,never knew there exists such a small browser. I'm impressed by the traditional interface of this browser, although all the other browser has made themselves the simple themes/skins like chrome, and the three rendering engines: IE, firefox and chrome. And more amazing thing is that I tried some add-ons I always used in firefox browser. they are perfectly match with the firefox rendering engine of Avant browser. Haven't tried the extensions of chrome yet.Because I rarely use them.
I have used many a browsers .Basically a browser can stay in my computer for several months.But avant is the only one I keep over years for it's cute body and fast speed.
