Sorry if this is the wrong forum section to be posting this, but I wasn't really sure where else to go. I currently use Avant Browser to, well, browse the internet. Is this a reliable browser? How secure is it compared to other browsers (such as IE or Firefox)? Thanks in advance for the reply!

Hi Rapid Descent

Well, reliable in that case can mean

* it's working perfect for YOU,
* it's easy to handle,
* has useful add on making surfing easier for YOU,
* has less open security holes,
* the reaction time til such critical security holes are closed.

I am sure you as experienced user can answer that questions. Personally I use Firefox and Opera as my main browsers. There might be some great working hulls for IE like Avant Browser but here another question that will help:

If you are going to put fresh new paint on a wrecked car, will you get a brand new one after?

Hi TheSentinel

Thanks for the quick reply. You make several good points. I guess it all boils down to personal preference. I think I shall continue to use Avant Browser as it is extremely user friendly and seems to have a degree of security I am happy with. Thanks again for the response ahah.gif

I don't use any browser that runs on the IE hull.
I prefer Opera and Firefox.
They aren't perfect but I think they are more secure than IE etc..

Avant is not really secure.
Personally I prefer Opera and Firefox.

Hello darksat

you claim to run a Security Board. Kay so far, but do you think it's ok to get an extra promotion from other boards by placing your signature about your board?

A board claiming to do in Security but hosting popups and advertisments isn't so serious...

So please change or remove your signature.

If security is concerned the MFF is the best browser. Its the feature lacking in IE.
