    Re: Avant browser updated

    Hi David:
    Have you tried it & is it true (less system resources)? I had to go back to an older version because the newer ones caused a loss of system resources to the point of crashing. I just tried & can't get on the site, so everyone must be waiting for this fix.
    Cheers,

    Re: Avant browser updated

    I just downloaded it and it seems to work great. Between 4 and 9 % CPU Usage and 16,000K of Memory. Explorer is using 36,000K. Seems pretty good to me. Going to a Webb Site it jumped to 26% CPU Usage for a second and thae droped back to 4% and bounced between 4 and 9%

    <P ID="edit" class=small>(Edited by Phil Rabichow on 26-Jul-03 23:31. to add Later)</P>Yep. Just tried it & seems to work great. Doesn't use a lot of resources or CPU (especially compared to previous versions). Seems to load fast & usually loads pages fast. Time will tell, but right now, I'm a happy camper.

    Later: May have spoken too soon. I have it freeze twice when exiting. Had to C-A-D to close it.

    Hi Cowboy,

    How do you monitor the amount of RAM memory each single app consumes?

    Thanks

    Hi Phil

    Actually.........Process Explorer doesn't show memory usage. <img src=/S/blush.gif border=0 alt=blush width=15 height=15>
    But check the "Options" anyway......it does provide a lot of info.

    Have a Great day!!!

    Re: Avant browser updated

    Actually, I was wondering the same thing so I downloaded Bonzai System View, which seems to work quite well only to find out that Aida32 which I already have does similar things.

    Re: Avant browser updated

    I get it. Phil had already answered for me -- I couldn't upgrade to XP yet. I'm even more eager now <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>

    Hi Mike,

    Thanks for the info. Aida32 looks like a great program to monitor RAM usage till I get my hands on XP. I've already downloaded, it's <img src=/S/free.gif border=0 alt=free width=30 height=15> and requires no installation.

    Hi Michael:
    <img src=/S/stupidme.gif border=0 alt=stupidme width=30 height=30>Thanks for this. I already had Aida32, but I totally forgot about it. I think I've been downloading too many programs. <img src=/S/laugh.gif border=0 alt=laugh width=15 height=15>
