Avant is an ultra-fast web browser made for Windows. It is a freeware web browser made by a Chinese programmer named Anderson Che. It unites the Trident layout engine which is built into Windows with an interface that is intended to be more feature-rich and flexible than Internet Explorer (IE). The version 2012 was separated into two editions. One was the Ultimate edition (Size: 62.9MB) which also had the Gecko layout engine, and it also gave the user a choice to choose between both of the engines. And the other edition was the Lite edition (Size: 4.46MB) with only the Trident layout engine. It is compatible with Windows XP or above.
The Avant Browser is mainly inspired by Opera, the first major browser to have a multiple document interface. The objective of the developer was to use the same layout engine used by Internet Explorer and unite it with the interface of Opera. Thus the Avant browser was initially released under the name "IEopera", but it was soon changed due to trademark issues.
The Avant Browser is a freeware, and hence it Is free of cost. It has no hidden virus, malware, spyware etc. and no hidden charges either.
Its multiple processing design allows a smooth and crash-free browsing experience, and it is also high on reliability. This kind of system also makes sure that if a single tab is frozen, it does not let the other tabs freeze or pulls the other pages down either.
Light on memory
Avant Browser is the smallest browser in size available for windows. As memory usage is also an essential aspect of the browser, the developer has made sure it does not use any unnecessary memory and provides a seamless browsing experience.
The split view adds to the multitasking interface of the Avant Browser and enables a whole new dimension of customizable layout interface. It makes viewing multiple websites an easy task. The prime example of using this feature would be reading the news while watching a video on a different tab.
The tabs in the browser are detachable from the main browser window and can be placed on top of different windows that might be open your screen. You have to drag the tab and put it over any window of your choice. This way, you can watch YouTube or chat with friends while working on a different application like Word, AutoCAD etc.
No Ajax Technology
As Ajax technology is becoming more and more popular, the problem of memory leak is also increasing. Still, Avant Browser uses a different technology and makes sure that all the memory is released after a tab is closed. The Ajax technology also causes frequent freezing or crashes for many browsers, but as the Avant Browser uses a different technology, such happenings are minimized.
One of the main features of the Avant Browser is the pop-up blocker. Avant can load up a web page faster than most of the browsers because of the Ad blocking feature. It also has a black and white list which can permanently block or allow the pop-ups respectively.
