Internet Explorer might come bundled with Windows but it lacks many features. A number of these can be found in Avant Browser.
Avant Browser is a quick download even for dial-up users. The interface is very similar to Internet Explorer, but open some of the menus and the differences are quickly obvious.
It is possible to deactivate different parts of a web page, such as pictures, sounds and flasgh animations. If you have a slow connection, this can make a huge difference.
Avant Browser can also block advertisements (including pop-ups), translate web pages, display web pages in full screen mode, and has full support for skins.
Any favourites or recently viewed pages from Internet Explorer can be easily imported, making migrating to this browser a doddle.
