    Avant Browser 9 - just released - allows the 'Press-It' function to work, but will still block unwanted popups / ads.
    With Version 8, you had to allow all ads / popups to get Press it to work.
    No idea what other 'features' are in this new release, but it still whoops IE's ass.

    WOW this kick Opera and Mozilla's asses. This is the only other program that doesn't stuff up when viewing my webpage!!!
    I recommend it to anyone.

    I forgot to add - make sure that opening a link from favourites does NOT open a new window, or Press-It will not work. (Avant's fault)

    I've been using Avant browser for quite some type as my preffered browser. It loads fast and has a lot of features that I like for tabbed windows, window navigation, popup blocker, etc. Sure, it runs off the IE engine and as far as I noticed displays pages the exact same way that you would see them in IE, but I haven't found a feature in Mozilla, Firebird, or Opera that I'd use so much to make me switch. I use those other browsers for checking web pages and testing, but Avant is definitely my favorite!

    Yes, I've used it for quite some time myself. I love that you can keep a pile of different sites readily accessible when you open your browser - kind of like a reminder that you wanted to go back to that site, and then you just have to click on the right window at the bottom.
