i use avant. been using it for about a year now. no real issues to complain about. it runs on the IE shell. people will tell you that IE has security holes and you should use something like firefox or mozilla to protect against intrusions. they just dont seem as user friendly to me as avant is. i've not had security problems so i'll stick with what i got.

Those are based on IE.Try K-Meloen.It's based on Mozilla but very fast and stripped down.Takes much fewer resources.

Opera is interesting also.It can zoom a whole webpage and has voice command.I haven't tried the voice command.

I got Avant working okay but nothing special.I've had Maxthon break a couplee of systems before and I don't mess with it much now.

Maxthon is my favorite browser so far.I used Avant in the past and it is ok.Maxthon just seems to run better on my machine than anything else.

I use maxthon for a year now, i even had my firewall block the IE. the best thing about maxthon that its fully compatible, i use it for windows update and my banking site that doesnt support anything but IE
