Smile Advanced Browser
FREE!
Advanced Browser.
Turns those nagging, resource-hogging flash animations into whitespace. Gone!
I've been using it for days and haven't had a pop-over or pop-under yet!
I'm surfing faster than ever!

Some features from the Advanced Browser website...

Quote:
Super fast browsing architecture!

Built-in Popup Killer

Ability to turn on/off Flash Animation

Quick Search Toolbar

Site Group: Open and save a collection of sites as a group

Built in Erase tool to remove all traces of online activity

Adds level of security to your browsing experience

You can change the Skins to your color preference

Rock solid performance over all other browsers
I've tried Internet Explorer, Opera, and Firefox. I can say that 'Advanced Browser' is the fastest and most accomodating browser I've ever used.
Try It!!!! It's FREE!!!!!

Doesn't this still run on IE's engine, just with a new front-end?

Hi Henry!
I haven't checked the "Avant Browser", but in the "Advanced Browser" Tools>Advanced Browser Options>Clear Records Tab: it also shows the name "Intellibrowser" , But it still works good.

I have a PII with only 128Mb ram and was getting fed up with all the 'click and wait' I was getting with IE...even with DSL High-speed...and constantly clearing cookies...and downloaded program files....and no way to turn off flash that I could find, etc, etc.

Hi brendandonhu!
I'm not technical enough to know, but it reads IE bookmarks without having to import them(that I noticed), if that is any clue...

HI Eskim68!
You're Welcome.
I've been running it for about 5 days. I can run IE or Opera at the same time. I've uninstalled Firefox so I didn't check that one. Advanced Browser asks if you want to make it your primary browser. Is there anything specfic you were referring to when you asked if it 'sits well'?

FYI- It is Internet Explorer with a new coat of paint, so all the security issues there still apply.

'new coat of paint'? Is this an MS thing?

It still uses IE's engine to render web pages. The difference is the new front-end look on Advanced Browser.

Hmm...interesting. How did you verify that? I'm not being doubtful of your finding, just would like to know so I can check myself in future.

With that bit of news then, Advanced Browser uses the IE 'engine' much better than Microsoft, IMHO. Advanced Browser is much faster than IE. I hardly have the time to sit and watch the page load anymore like I used to with IE, .... they just flash up on the screen in a wink. That's what I like.

As far as I know, without a good firewall and anti-virus, there will always be security issues no matter which browser is used.

Does any browser incorporate all the necessities needed to surf safely?
Firewall, anti-virus, anti-trojan, anti-etc..?

If you check the user-agent and other info it sends when you visit a website, it identifies itself as Internet Explorer 6. A browser with built in firewall and antivirus would be a bit bloated, I'd say.

I d/l and installed. Couldn't even get it to work. Wouldn't load a web page. Doesn't seem to be as good as even Slimbrowser, much less Firefox. Am I missing something?

I went to a web-site that returns your browser user_agent info and you are 100% correct. I also noticed along the way, that user_agent_string can be changed to whatever you want. What is the usefulness of the user_agent_string? Does a website program check this string when you see source code such as 'isIE' ?

I guess it would be a bit bloated, but if it's all for one purpose, why have a bunch of programs to load instead of one? Maybe a firewall should be included in browsers. I see anti-virus, anti-spy, etc, as being functions of the OS.

I'm using it right now. I'm also testing Avant browser (very similar). http://www.avantbrowser.com/download.html
And I'll be trying Slimbrowser later today. I've read that it has a spellchecker that I won't need. Maybe that feature can be turned off.
