well, i tried Myie2, and it has some features that i would love to see in ab (mouse gestures,resizable tabs[abs tabs are a little big]) but ab is much faster than myie2  ;D so, i use both.

The mouse Guesture of Avant could not be called a "Guesture". Sometimes it just cause trouble for me.

Avant is much faster because of its lack of features, like "Content Filter" in MyIE2.

Avant is developed with Delphi, if it has those features, it may much slower than MyIE2. Because MyIE2 is coded with Visual C++. Someone said "A Programmer using the RAD Enviroment is not a Real Programmer". Although I don't completely agree with it.

I also gave a try on GoSurf( http://www.mmjd.com/gosurf/ ). Much better than Avant but with no Skin and sometimes lost its toolbar image.

Since I'm just looking for a simple Tabbed Shell of IE, I still use Avant.
Try everything, take only one.

:o I am a diehard AB fan for a long time now.  But even I must admit that if the authors of both ever joined forces, that IE shell would be awesome second to none! But for now, AB is fast - noticeably faster than MyIE2.  On the other hand, MyIE2 is remarkably stable, functional and works more like IE than anything else I've tested before including AB.  Nevertheless, AB remains my sentimental favorite.

Edit: Just got my hands on AB 8.02 b101  awesome!  The Favorites Menu glitch for many has been fixed in XP limited user accounts.  AB is a speed demon!!

MyIE2 vs Avant... Answer...

Post by tenplus1 » Fri Sep 19, 2003 12:27 pm

I've been using MyIE2 and Avant Browsers for quite a while now and have come to the following conclusion:

MyIE2 might have some nifty Ad-stopping features and some nice shortcuts in doing some things, but it's a pain to setup, the menus are cluttered and all the windows are either maximised or restored...

Avant on the other hand has better window control and faster updating, the menus are simple and the ad-support basic, but in general it's a much easier and cleaner browser to work with and in the end that's what counts... ease of use...

AVANT is the winner...!

Hi guys,

for me, the only thing that Avant is better than MyIE2, is the sized windows.

Avant doesn't support a lot of thinks, as Download Manager, IE plugins....

VaMPiRiC_CRoW making a comment on Avant forum?

And it's in favor of MyIE2  :o

Shocking !!! ;D

BTW - speed on Avant is faster :)

And I believe MyIE2 and Avant share the same abilities and problems with plug-ins and such.  For example, the google/win98 problem is common between the two.

Yeah, I was just playing with you :)

Although it should be noted you're pretty active on the MyIE2 forums, more so than here :)

I'd be interested to know what you think of the newest Avant version.

I have tried all of what are supposed to be the better browsers, to include FireBird/Mozilla and Opera (hyped as the best, but NOT!) among others, and they all have their plusses and minuses, and none of them are perfect, and each person has their own ideas of what they like in a browser, but IMHO Avant currently is the better of the best, for a lot of reasons that are not necessary to go in to - y'all know that...  If only they would add in the hotlist/notes feature from Opera....  ;)

Maybe you should try WinRAR 3.0+

Most of the problems are coming from user's mis-operation and setup. That's what I feel in the forum. Just personal opinion.

I use powerzip here. Maybe it was a corrupted download. I always download from download.com or the main site  :)

I like myie2 because I can add stuff to the sidebars and load external utilities. As for avant, it rocks cos' of the speed!
