Avant Browser is an ultra-fast web browser which fuse the Trident, Webkit and Gecko engines into one interface. Its user-friendly interface brings a new level of clarity and efficiency to the browsing experience which with frequent upgrades have steadily improved its reliability.
Avant Browser made its initial release on January 30, 2004 with its Stable release being April 18, 2014. For those who like their customization in-house, the Avant Browser’s latest update might appeal to you. Avant has three Rendering Engines built-in: Trident, Gecko and Webkit, the engines behind Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome respectively.
Users can choose whatever their favorite engine as the default, and switch to others when the default cannot render a web page properly. Users can as well define different rendering engine for different websites in the browser options menu which allows the rendering engine to switch automatically to the selected engine for the websites when navigating to those websites.
The browser is sufficiently fast, preloaded with lots of skins as well as tabbed browsing and modular toolbars that let you move around and hide the Status bar, Toolbar, Search window, and navigation controls. The Menu bar, though, is counter intuitively pinned to the upper-right corner, and icons for proprietary functions, such as an in-page search term highlighting toggle, aren’t instantly comprehensible.
Avant contains an option to save personalized data online, making bookmarks and form content accessible from any device. Avant includes many features that are available to Firefox users only through plug-ins–such as automatic form fillers and a full Screen view which autohides all menu bars. Avant is a good browser with some nice built-in features and interface-customization options.
