Software update: Avant Browser 11.7 build 36

Anderson Che, founder and sole employee of Avant Force, has released a new version of Avant Browser. This web browser partly uses Internet Explorer, but adds extra functionality to it, such as a pop-up blocker, tabbed browsing, a search bar and the ability to customize the appearance of the program with skins. Some of these features are already offered by default in version 7 of IE, but Avant Browser can already be used from Internet Explorer 5.5. Since version 11 it is possible to save your profile online, so that you can access your bookmarks, RSS feeds and settings from anywhere. The changelog of this release shows the following changes:


  • Fixed an HTML bug which prevented a sidebar from being displayed on “”
  • Fixed a bug which mischecked a bookmark url availability
  • Fixed a bug where the address bar drop down list kept showing when switching to other applications
  • Fixed a bug where disabling “auto refresh all tabs” didn’t work
  • Fixed a bug where for some people, going to Google and typing “blocker.swf” in the search bar, Avant attempted to download the file from “http://localhost/res/blocker.swf”
  • Fixed a bug which caused the “Search the current site” button to use Avantfind instead of your default search engine.
  • Fixed the XSS vulnerability on the browser:home page
