Yes,I too want the same.

Small correction mate.AB uses CTRL+N for new TAB at present.So, that has to be changed to CTRL+T and new window to CTRL+N :wink:

Welcome Back Anderson.

I would like you to add an option for Avant to be able to make me breakfast and, if possible, mow my lawn...

If those aren't feasible, how about an option to walk my dog...

Thanks...

Great you're back! :D
Just two requests here: the already mentioned multiple windows option (or else: the possibility to keep one window tab always on top above another tab), because then you could easily type some text in one window tab while you're reading the other one. That would be very useful if you're a lot on forums :D
And another request is bringing more tweaking options for Avant Browser (like: more plugin support and more toolbar buttons you can add).
Keep on going with Avant Browser, it's way better than the other browsers :!: :)

Personally, I'd be pretty happy if the bug where the picture zoom doesn't keep the correct dimension ratio could be fixed.

Avant certainly doesn't provide a sense of humor, either. ;)

I am glad to see you back Anderson!
  • 1) I want an option to install AB as iexplore.exe.
    2) I would like to hear your explanation on this topic: avant causes an enormous interrupt rate. Is it bug or not?
    3) Can you repair this bug: Hidden Group in multiple columns?
    4) I would like to have in Organize Groups:
    • Drag and Drop, like in Organize Favorites
      Cloning, like copy and paste with different name (e.g. "Copy of Previous_name")
    5) I want a possibility to show Groups in side panel like Favorites, Feeds, History, ...
I love AB!

I am a bit confused now about this thread.

What's the state of the Avant Browser Requests thread? I thought we were presenting suggestions/enhancements in an orderly fashion in the original thread. What's happeneing? Confused!!

Welcome back. I hope the move went well.

Now that one I'd go for! Renaming avant.exe and all my shortcuts is a bit of a PIA. Other than that, I have no issues at all.

Thanks!

My requests include:

1 Having a "Close all favorites ..." menu selction like the "Open all Favorites ..." one

2 Having the Zoom function work for individual pages if one wants it that way - so that one can have one page zoomed at 200 % and another at 100% for example

3 Having a button on the menu bar for turning the AdBlock on and off

4 Putting all Quick Search search engines automatically
included in the Standard Search choice list so that any of them (and not just AvantFind or Google) could be the Standard Search engine.

5 An exceptions list for the Flash enabler so that when you disable Flash in general Flash will still work for certain sites where you must have it and want it.

6. an import/export function for favorites

7. add some buttons to the context menu that comes up on an advertisement- right now it has "Add to Black List", so why not "Remove from Black List" and "Add to Exceptions List" and "Remove from Exceptions List" - this would give one full control over the whole shebang with ease

Luvnit but Version 10.0 Build 167 is freezing.

Post by meohmy » Wed May 18, 2005 12:43 am

I have absolutely never had a problem with Avant & would never ever think of using another browser but this newest version 10.0 Build 167 has been freezing up on me. I have uninstalled and reinstalled but to no avail. Hopefully the new build will be more stable. Thank you, thank you, thank you for Avant!!!

I hope you are enjoying your new home. May goodness and fortune follow you in your going out and coming in. I just want to so THANK YOU for this awesome broswer! I have searched for over two years to find a browser worthy to be used by me and I have tried many of them. Amoung them were mozilla, and mozilla firefox and I have found them lacking, not only do they not have the amount of features that Avant has but they also do not load some webpages correctly, including my HOMEPAGE! I am hard to please when it comes to browsers and I am very pleased with Avant Browser, you are a genius. I am also looking forward to IE7 core being implemented in the next generation of Avant browser. I quiver with delight when I think of the features it should inherit. :D 8)

Welcome back, Anderson!!!
Here's my request:
I'd like to have a list of sites to load without images (a sort of blacklist, as for pop-ups and ads). NOT an exception list (I'd like to have my Images button unchecked by default) but an exclusion list.

Thanks!

That would be nice, of course, but I've been running my one and only shortcut to point to a .cmd file automatically renaming it if it isn't already so, I just need to manually instruct the installer NOT to install any shortcut... :wink: THAT would be nicer still, to save somewhere the installer options and use those when upgrading instead of the default ones (the registry, maybe? or the conf.ini file?).

...i can only think of one thing that I would really like....the ability to have more than 16 tabs at the bottom before it makes a second row. M*xthon can do, but would much prefer to use Avant 'cos it roks my socks.

Thanks
