Firefox Browser Complaint - Firefox or Avant browser?

Review by tander on 2007-01-15
AT MY COMPUTER, MINNESOTA -- I'm once again trying Firefox. I keep reading reviews on it, on how good it is and I see all the extensions you can use with it, that you can't use with Avant Browser. Firefox is slow compared to Avant. I keep getting these reset connection errors that I never get with Avant. the 2 browsers are a lot alike, they both have tabbed pages, everything generally is the same except it's slower for some reason loading pages. I guess I will once again uninstall Firefox and go back to Avant. Hopefully Avant some day will make some extensions you can use.

I use Firefox and have not noticed any performance problems. Perhaps the sites your are visiting are slow? I know this site seems to slow down a bit sometimes during the evening... perhaps peak times.

Sparticus I'm back on Avant again. Have you tried Avant, for some reason the pages load faster for me with this.

I don't use Firefox nor Avant to browse the web. I use the new Internet Explorer 7. IE7 also has tabbed browsing and more security features such as anti-phishing.Unlike Firefox and Avant, IE7 is compatible with all the websites including banking and online shopping. With a good firewall installed, I have never gotten any malware or virus on my computer while using IE7.

The choice of browser is up to the user. There are a few web sites that will only work with IE. Apparent speed can depend on many factors including the type of connection and routing. I use FireFox simply because it is not tied in to Windows.

Perhaps I'll give this Avant browser a try. Never heard of it! Another one I use on occasion is the Opera browser...

I love Firefox, and have never had a problem with it. I run the free Zone Alarm firewall, Norton Anti-Virus, and Adaware SE Plus spyware blocker as well, and that has kept me safe thus far.

It's not the brower, it's the browsie.
