AB Extension Pack

Postby MysteryFCM » Thu Jan 26, 2006 10:26 pm

What is the AB Extension Pack?

The AB Extension Pack is a collection of extensions written for Avant Browser that provide added functionality to an already wonderful browser shell. The extensions available can all be used from the browsers right click context menu and where applicable, are also available from the favourites.

Extensions currently include webpage and text translation, search/meta search engine lookup, dictionary/encyclopedia lookup, domain verification, referer verification along with our sURL, vURL, hpHosts Online, Multi-Search services and much more, with new extensions being added on an on-going basis.

For an upto date list of included extensions, please see the AB Extension Pack FAQ

Updates:

Added: SiteAdvisor Lookup

Modified: hpHosts Online Lookup (see Notes)

Misc: Minor updates to the installer
Misc: Other minor modifications

Notes:

Due to a server move, the hpHosts Online query in the last version is now broken. This version includes the new URL for hpHosts Online.

Though I have been given permission by SiteAdvisor to include the SiteAdvisor Lookup extension, it must be made clear that this extension is NOT supported by SiteAdvisor. Any and all questions associated with this extension, should be directed to myself at: http://mysteryfcm.co.uk/?mode=Tickets&cid=2
