No. It works without IE. A friend of mine runs it without IE on his XP computer. Avant is the fastest teal browser out there. I hardly use IE or Firefox.

I took it up to six tabs and is was 64Mb.

Is Avant free? I'm sick of crashes - would like to try it...

It is free http://www.avantbrowser.com/
You wont regret trying it out. I have used it for over two years without a single crash (which used to be daily with IE).
#17

Thanks - I'll give it a go. I'm happy enough with Firefox atm, but no harm trying it. No conflicts or any other issues that you know of?

why does one want to know this?

No. Everything is great. There are loads of skins to make it look the way you want it. I personally think that the password autofill is far better than the Firefox version, but I suppose it all comes down to preference.

under 3.5mb firefox with 20 tabs - 3408kb
I use ultimate firefox optimizer and that uses under 3mb in itself so well worth installing for a total of under 7mb!!!http://i155.photobucket.com/albums/s308/harlzter/funnyandodd/36e7b986.jpg

Wow. Thats impressive - but then ram is dirt cheap these days and I'm not often exceeding 2GB so maybe its not worth the 'expense' of paging it to HDD (which I presume the Firefox optimiser must do)....

I'd presume it works by cache page data to hard disc though (much alike virtual memory but independant of that) - seems unlikely its possible to fit 8 pages of web data in such a small amount of ram - could be wrong though - but certainly sounds useful for slower/older computers with not so much ram.

Only in the sense that Firefox is a Mozilla overlay.

I'm using Maxthon with eight tabs open, memory usage is currently 22mb. I'd love to switch to opera since Maxthon isn't the most reliable browser in the world (version 1 at least) but there are several features in it that no other browser has yet.

I'm using Delorean with a Mr Fusion add-on and it's using about 1.21 gigawatts.

Holy carp, just downloaded ultimate firefox optimizer after reading harlzer's post, it is using between 1 and 2mb and firefox has dropped from 98mb to 0.5mb with the same 3 tabs open!

Are you finding response times faster and more stability?
#29
I'm losing the will to live reading carp like this, going for a dump now!
banned#30
4 tabs, 171mb (firefox)
#31
Firefox Ultimate Optimizer appears to be quite stable after 24 hours
#32
iexplore version 8 beta, one window open 28,636K
#33
Firefox 3, 1 tab, 29MB :)
#34

18 tabs open at the moment! (omg I gotta close some lol)
211MB
