Browser Options

Post by kanuck » Sun Sep 07, 2008 4:54 am

Since ORCA is based on both Avant and Firefox, it should import the browser options and other settings already defined on both browsers if they are installed. An example would to import automatically all URL aliases defined in AVANT browser options... to re-enter all the information is a pain in the neck!! It should also import addons and extension I have in firefox...

Importing extensions from Firefox? Umm, that might be possible. But to be clear the only thing Orca and Firefox have in common is the rendering engine that Firefox uses thats pretty much it. The rest of it comes from Avant. Granted in the future features might be migrated from Firefox into Orca but it will never be a Firefox clone like Flock or Netscape.

As for importing Avant profiles, I think would be alittle harder to do since a Orca Profile has more to it then Avant. But who knows..

@Kanuck: I notice you are still using Avant 11.5 if your profile is true.. Out of curiousity what has made you stick with such an old version?

The first time I've installed the new orca, I've logged in to the online storage with my Avant's login details and it have imported all the settings just fine.
