All transparent PNG images have Alpha Channels. Trident lets in only a little bit of the Alpha PNG population, but definetly not the latest 32-Bit Alpha PNG technology.PNGs are not completely supported by IE, I believe PNGs with an alpha channel are a few ppm (parts-per-million) of all the images on the net...
Funny... The author of that site must be a complete idiot then to miss the "IE Shell" references that are mentioned about eveywhere in reference to Avant. I don't recall anyone once saying Avant was a standalone browser. So, the author of that stupid, lame, BORING message was just talking out of his ****.sirin wrote:Funny, has it ever been anything else?

From an anti-IE website (not having anything to do with me):
Ever wondered why you need to download Internet Explorer (50+ Mb)?Is Avant Browser a better browser that IE?
Avant is not a browser. There is no such thing as Avant "Browser".
Avant "Plugin" would be more appropriate. Avant is just a plugin to Internet Explorer, nothing else. Avant has all of the features of Internet Explorer, because you ARE running Internet Explorer.
When you are running Avant, open the windows task manager, go under processes, and look for "avant.exe". That's Avant. Look around, and you'll also notice that "iexplore.exe" is running. What is this? 3 words: MICROSOFT INTERNET EXPLORER.
If you run Internet Explorer and not Avant, you'll notice that all of these features that came only with Avant are gone. This is because all of these features can only be accessed using The Avant Plugin.
Anderson Che, the only guy on the Avant team tried to get credit he didn't deserve by naming it Avant "Browser". I know these things because I used to be an Avant Fanboy, wubbing every little bit of it. I sent them a suggestion concerning open source, but they refused to do this because they were SCARED of "Source Code Thievery, Alteration, and Distribution." Actually, Mr. Andy was scared to release the source code because users would then find out it was just a plugin, which would cause an outbreak against him and his so-called "browser". I found this out when I was running the Task Manager to kill some useless ram-hog apps that I wasn't using, I was also running Avant. Then guess what I found while I was looking: The Notorious "iexplore.exe".
Before I found this out, I thought it was a browser based on IE, but when I saw "iexplore.exe", I had found out it WAS Internet Explorer itself! Avant is not a browser. It's a PLUGIN. I wasted time defending a waste of space on my hard disk with a 10-Page site for nothing (took it down). I'm a Firefox dude now.
Now please, topic, people.
This warzone stuff's getting kinda boring.
