    lets see if anyone tried Advanced Browser
    I am using it and I find it very nice and ofcourse very smooth to use with lots of added benefits.
    It uses the base of IE and benefits of say, opera. In simple words it combines the best functions of best browsers available and itself coming up with a product that is you can say like an assembled browser.
    just try out or if anyone already use it.. want to hear some comments
    thx

    subratam, if you do try this be sure to post how it worked for you. It would be interesting to find out if there is another browser out there that is anygood. ;)

    hey bigc,

    I am trying this for past 1 month now... see my post previous... I said I am using it... and to me its really is a nice one... here lemme post from the horse's mouth

    These new features include multiple subwindows (tabs) in a single browser window, a built-in automatic pop-up window stopper, built-in online activity eraser - great privacy feature, built-in options to block images, videos, sounds, ActiveX components, multiple windows management (all windows can be stopped, refreshed, arranged or closed with one click), additional mouse functions, different skins, imports all of your current Internet Explorer favorites. Advanced browser also remembers windows you viewed and can automatically restore them on next program startup. Download this free Internet Explorer based browser and see for yourself. (File size is only 1.03MB)

    and yes... its a good browser(am posting this from here only ;) )

    Hi,subratam

    thank you for your post. It seems that Advanced Browser is relatively new web browser. May I ask you two questions?

    1.)Does Advanced Browser have mouse gesture feature like Opera?

    2.)Does Advanced Browser use registry as a preservation of settings?

    I think IE or IE based browser is not so unsecure if I configure correctly. ;)

    Best Regards

    Hi,JayK :)

    I don't know why you dislike IE so much. I also know this site.
    http://www.pivx.com/larholm/unpatched/

    but I don't worry about using IE so much, nor visiting bugtraq every day. because I never allow java,java script,active x, If I don't know the site is completely secure.

    In addition to this, I also use proxomitron as a local proxy, this program is very good HTTP firewall If I configure correctly. I also use Script Sentry as a anti-malicious script, most malicious mobile code won't be executed on my PC If I don't allow for myself.

    I sometimes use Opera and Mozilla(mostly on Linux box), Opera and Mozilla also had some bugs in the past, it's same as IE. If I don't configure correctly and have common sense, I think that a result becomes the same thing.

    Best Regards.

    I used to use IE exclusively but it was a constant battle to try to keep up with all the security problems that were constantly showing up. I will now stay with opera and blackdiamomd mozilla. They are so much more secure. And if advanced browser is just a shell for IE you will gain nothing security wise by useing it. I am trying not to use very many screen shots but in this case I will to show that it is an IE shell

    I read today that M$ has announced that the 6.x version of IE is *their last standalone browser* -- they announced that any future browser upgrades will be based upon, & built into, their Longhorn OS.

    IF M$ goes forward with this plan, I wonder what effect it will have on all the many IE clones out there?

    But it holds bigger security than IE... I always trial softwares, everytype... At present I use three browser moreso two, A B and Opera.
    A B is well to do... I have been using it... and yes... Its nice and if you need ultimate browsing experience... I think it should have its say.... security?? hmm .. I feel its not that insecure.... but yes opinions differ... and ofcourse Opera , Mozilla are there.... I have used them all umm A B do fight ..

    Because it's bad??

    Nice except some of the exploits work even with javascript off. And surfing without JS is rather painful, I found.

    Proxomitron is useful against such exploits only if you keep abreast of the latest security exploits in IE, and design filters to detect them.

    It's good that you take precautions, but as I have shown, even with this degree of effort, you are still exposed. Much easier just to ditch IE and use it only when required.

    Where is the logic in that statement o_O

    I tend to agree with others here, that while Advanced Browser may increase the functionality of IE, it still uses IE as the core and with some of IE's inherent weaknesses it does not really add much greater security at all.

    Hi,subratam

    Thank you for your reply. :)

    Yes,I also read good FAQ. Why I ask you whether Advanced Browser use registry or not is that I know many people never use IE based web browsers just because they use registry as a preservation of settings. I just want to make it more clear.

    Anyway I like to try new software, I'll give A.B. a try.
    many thanks.
    Best Regards.

    Hi,

    I used Advanced for a while and I liked it. But I am using (trying) at the moment MyIE2, so far i think this one is even more better to me.

    I was reading some very interesting articles Subratam...between the comparisons of Avant and Advanced...and it seems that Advanced is a ripped of copy of an earlier version of Avant(8.02)....also the size is different...while Advanced is 1.03 MB and Avant is 2.17 MB....i personaly did try Avant and it seemed like a very stable browser and it has some very nice features added to it.....but i am currently using my IE6 again...i have tried all the rest...and everyone i have tried has some sort of issue with it..i know people complain how bad IE6 is...but it works for me..and everyone has their own preference....some people like Corvettes and some like Mustangs and then there are ones like me, who still like Edsels :cool:

    Well if it's up to me, anyone who admits to using any IE based browser as their main browser, should be barred from being Wilder's security members :)

    Come on folks...

    Let's stay focused on the product itself and not talk about the users of it or each other. There will be people here who use IE exclusively, people who never use it, and those that fall somewhere in between.

    Let's not make it personal. It's only software!

    For the record; I use IE6 exclusively, and have never had a problem with it whatsoever.

    Until I started useing opera and mozilla I always used IE and it worked well. In all the years that I used it I only had to do one reinstall. But in the last year and a half there has been a lot more malware and it is capable of doing a lot more damage. That is why I wont go back to IE or use an IE shell browser until they make it a bit more secure. If a small company like opera can do it microsoft should be able to. ;)
