Howdy Bob,

How is it? Stable, user friendly, can handle some plug-ins and add-ons? Did you use it?

Nope, that's probably why pages load so darn fast..... If you like Avant though you should really give this one a try, the more i play with it the more i like it ;)

Hi folks,

But why will Bob3160 will give thumbs up on a browser when Avast Webshield cannot run inside it, or can it? Bob you are the Avant browser man here. I have the Webshield running inside my Flock browser, really fine and fast, no sweat.

Well Polonus, our friend Bob is the GREEN BROWSER man and i believe he only wanted to put our attention to ORCA browser ;) BTW i noticed ORCA still has some bugs(ofcourse it's still in beta) and it eats more memory than Maxthon does.


Cheers

OK how to set up webshield to work with Orca Browser:

Under Tools - Orca Browser Options - Proxy Server   enter under address localhost and under port 12080 then click add.That's it now webshield should work with Orca. ;)

Here is how it should look like when you're done:



Cheers

Some time ago I believe it was mentioned that not all browsers are supported only mainstream known browsers (as far as web shield is concerned) to avoid conflict, so it may be that Orca has to be added to the Optin programs in avast4.ini, [WebScanner] section.

If it doesn't work after setting it up manually to use the web shield proxy, then perhaps it needs to optin.

Well fortunately it does work with the web shield when you enter the proxy settings :)

BTW Bob it's called gecko (mozilla) engine ;)

A little typo even happens to the best of us especially if the spell checker doesn't catch it....
Every one knows Fire Fox, most novices don't know a mozilla from a gorilla..... ;D ;D ;D

Hi Bob,

This browser is not bad. First impression good. The one click adding to a black list is new.
