Avant Browser 9.02 beta 003 released!

Post by Anderson » Mon Mar 22, 2004 4:58 pm

Hello, Everybody,

I just finished 9.02 beta 3. As requested, the old splitter is back now.
http://dl.filekicker.com/send/file/1422 ... abbeta.exe
Anybody like the old splitter, please test if it works properly.

I will release an official version soon.

Thanks,

Anderson

Spectacular! This... right after URL editing! And as one who never had any of the major issues many others did, I'm completely happy!

WOW.. fricken amazing :D

i used a javascript speed test at: http://www.24fun.com/downloadcenter/ben ... nchjs.html

My results were much better on this beta (last beta i scored 19.21 seconds total)
this 1 i scored 15.79secs. (windows xp amd 1600+ dialup connection)

TEST 1 time: 3.284 sec.
TEST 2 time: 0.691 sec.
TEST 3 time: 1.091 sec.
TEST 4 time: 1.121 sec.
TEST 5 time: 2.694 sec.
TEST 6 time: 2.724 sec.

It recognised my browser as MyIE2 .. does avant browser use MyIE2 code?

it recognized your Avant as MyIE2, because you tried MyIE2, and it changed your user agent without your permission. Avant will not change your user agent. Normally, it will be just recognized as IE.

Hi stevenp, I was having the same problem but when I open the sidebar from the Favorites button it started working again and I can now open and close with the splitter bar. Try this and see if it works for you.

Yeah. It's because there's no inbuilt default for the splitter. When you try to open it the first time, it doesn't know which to open as.

May I suggest blocked popups?

Tools->Avant Browser Options-Miscellaneous. Uncheck the second box--apply. Just once open the side bar by clicking the faovorites icon. From then on all you have to do is click the middle of the left border (little lines between two little arrows.

HTH

Same thing here... Just with better grammar. :)

EDIT:

Once I opened it by clicking on the FAVORITES ICON on the tooldbar, then the slider bar on the favorites began working both opening and closing. Before clicking the FAVORITES icon, it would not open the FAVORITES panel when it was closed. Hope that info helps.
