Browsers... My Experience

Recommended Posts

Howdy !

I am now using K-Meleon as a browser. So far so good... except once, the chess pieces didn't all render on the chess board on an iGoogle chess puzzle widget [whatever], but subsequently has worked fine.

OK, I got tired of my Opera 9.27 browser not opening my second page on iGoogle (and not showing some of my iGoogle widgets [or whatever they're called] like gmail).

Now, I was using Opera 9.27 because Opera 9.5x isn't stable on my eMachines eMonster 700k using Windows 98SE with a whopping 192 MB ram (sigh)... and I'm going to wait until Opera 9.6x is known to be stable for older machines... and I don't care for IE6... and Firefox 2.0.0.16 just works wonky on my 'puter, and Firefox 3.0 isn't an option for Windows 98SE.

Soooooooo... I tried Avant Browser. Prior to uninstalling Avant, after crashing, and crashing, and crashing, I finally get a web page to come up...

All I get to notice on the page is an ad from Yahoo to try Firefox 3.0 :lol: ..................... then Avant crashes on me again.

Maybe it's just me... but I thought it was funny.

Yes Marty, I agree that SlimBrowser has some good points, but I was wondering if you know where I can find a new update for it since Sept 14, 2007?

Were you using the new version Avant Browser 11.7 build 10 ?

Thanx Marty...

I've dl'd it and will review it next to K-Meleon ( sheeeeesh !... the dl feature on K-Meleon was even slower than Opera 9.27's standard dl'er on dial-up )

Sultan... I couldn't find any more recent versions either...

Prolly in the works?

re: Avant....... I think so. I use FileHippo.com daily to see what's up and new and just dl'ed it last week.

Funny, the FileHippo update says build 9 but the description page says build 10... but I'm pretty sure I hit the "Download Latest Version 1.91MB" tab which shows build 10.

update: confirmed - it was Avant v. 11.7 build 10

update (deux): Slim Browser good for dl'ing ( my Leechget proggy works )... but otherwise it's (IE IE IE !!!) slow... promising, but slooow. I accidentally doubleclicked a tab and it disappeared (closed) which I thought was rude. Having multiple tabs that all load slowly is like hearing fingernails scraping (IE IE IE !!!) on a blackboard .

Sticking with K-Meleon until Opera is a viable option again.

come on

sultan up dates are only there to see how many users are using thier product

then they can target that area

up dates are another way to see if they have any more new users

tell me what is the difference

123 versions of any

os or program absulutly nought

every thing isnt changed

i learned this at techtv

virus are another dimension

they need to be up dated

but if you set your security properly

up only dates catch the new bugs on stream

hi jcl

i just read your avanti

link

i used avanti in the past

but at the time it was to big for my sys

so i had to get rid of it

leo laport from techtv used to swear by it

and i havent thought about it since

with this dam vista you have to be care full what you load

in the past on all my sys ive used a registry cleaner

but vista wont allow any registry cleaner that i have installed

it shows it as an error

i like slim browse it is small quick fast

and every thing is in front of you not hidden like many

browsers

I'm sticking with FF 3.01 for now. I really did give Opera 9.51 a go, but, it segfaulted too many times on me. I've tried out Chrome on a Windows unit at work, it is a nice, speedy browser ( no *nix or OS X version yet though....grrrrr). :)

hitest, for os x try webkit it's part of what makes chrome quick. Looks and works like Safari but faster.

Okay:-) Thanks isteve, I'll give Webkit a try.
