P.S. More problems will be fixed in the coming Avant 12(a pre-alpha version could come out around the new year). We really feel sorry for the delays.

Avant Browser 11.8 Alpha 1 released, May 14, 2010.

This is a strictly a pre-release version of Avant meant to test out the new back-end that has been developed for Avant 12. The next several releases are going to be for hunting down bugs so that the final release of 11.8 can be as bug-free as possible. Due to the length of development it was decided that splitting up the features planned for Avant 12 would help in delivering at least some of them sooner and that is the purpose of v.11.8.

Changelog:
    New Features: Brand new back-end to help with stability and reliability in the operation of Avant.
  • Multi-Process system: Avant will stay intact whether a tab crashes or not.
  • Better CPU/Memory usage. Releases memory thoroughly to fix most leaks
  • New Paste & go, Paste & submit, and Paste & Search, right click options for the Address bar
  • Private Mode: When you open a private session no history, temp files, or cookies are saved during the session.
  • Backup/Restore Profile interface: Allows you to backup and restore your profile. Your profile includes bookmarks and interface settings, such as the position of your buttons/toolbars, etc.
  • New Tab-Wrap button: As more tabs are opened you can either have them all on one row or click this button and it will start wrapping to more than one row of tabs.
  • Rendering mode: You can now choose between IE7,IE8, and IE8 Forced mode without the IE version switcher
  • Save Selected Region to Clipboard
  • Ascend or descend sorting Quick search and URL Alias
  • Clear Website icons
  • Copy all URLs from a Bookmark folder
  • New right click options: Block All images from the Same Server, Copy Picture Link, Open Picture in New Tab, Open in New Avant Browser[Private Mode].
    Fixes:
  • Being unable to start a new line to edit the script of an addon
  • Only displaying favicons in site’s root directory
  • Values are too short to read in View/Edit Autofill window when variables are too long
  • Sometimes exported bookmarks are miscoded

Download:
Avant Browser 11.8 Alpha 1

USB version:
No USB build for this release
