In a previous post, I mentioned I was staying with IE. But I've been using Avant exclusively since the 9.02 version. This browser is awesome and it keeps getting better. Comes in 34 different languages with built-in cache cleaner and search, the ability to enable/disable pictures, video, pop-ups, ads, flash, scripts with a couple clicks. Avant also handles tabbed browsing very efficiently.

And the thing I like most about Avant is its mind-blowing set of countless options. It is by far the most tweakable browser.

Used to be an Avant fan for long time. Not any more. Liked the tabbed browsing, session saving, and built in popup blocker, but they never managed to fix its stability (crashing & freezing), and CPU hogging (specially in Flash or Java based sites). Had enough of it after I figured out I needed to shut it down on a regular basis, in order to be able to work normally. Moved to Maxthon about a month ago, and I'm very happy with it. It has a less fancier look than Avant (though I didn't try its skins), but has the same features I liked in Avant - and more. I definitely recommend IE fans to give it a try.
