FF has "extensions", which can add lots of new features.
But Avant's really faster and I don't like FF's page rendering..
If I die I have to go before Crom and he will ask me:
"What is the rule of Steel?"
And if I don't know it, he will cast me out of Valhalla and laugh at me!
That's Crom, strong on his mountain..

I can't say... I like both becasue both have their pros and both have their cons.

Also, you are comparing and IE based browser to a Gecko based browser which is very different. If you were comparing Avant to MyIE2 or Slimbrowser then I would have to go with Avant just because of personal taste. I have tried all three and like Avant the best.

I have to say Avant Browser. Firefox is much slower starting up. Plus it has extension bugs. Firefox is a good browser, but still needs improvement. It's beta, so we'll see when they come out with a official version.

I wouldn't agree that Avant is faster, but it does take less time to start...

I'd have to disagree. On my system, Firefox (and Mozilla) are MUCH slower than IE or Avant.

AVANT is simply slicker and faster than Firefox. Most of the tool sets are equal (after you install several extensions for Firefox). But the tool sets are built in to the AVANT interface. The Gecko rendering (from the top down) is slower than the IE engine that AVANT incorporates. My system may not be the "fastest on the market", but is adequate for a benchmark of competitive software.

Did you really think there would be a tremendous amount of Firefox users reading the Avant forum? :?

Orca would be the best IMHO, it's the best from FF and AB.
