 Internet Avant Browser - easy surfer
Avant was the first IE (Internet Explorer) based browser I ever tried that allowed me to use a tabbed browsing interface. I fell in love with that feature the first time I tried Opera. Avant used to crash on me occasionally but it's been continually improving and it seems to work very nicely now. I enjoy the built in pop up blocking and other features it has. It's really got plain old IE beat all to heck and back. If you are trying tabbed browsing for the first time, you'll never want to go back.
Website - Quote from the website
Avant Browser is a multiwindow browser that allows users to browse multiple Web sites simultaneously and block all unwanted pop-up pages and Flash ads automatically. The integrated cleaner helps users clear all traces and maintain privacy. The built-in Yahoo/Google search engines enable users to search for Web pages, images, groups, directories, lyrics, software, and news on the Internet. Avant Browser provides options for blocking the download of Flash media, pictures, video, sounds, and ActiveX components, so users can efficiently use their bandwidth and speed up page loading. All opened pages can be easily stopped, refreshed, closed, or arranged with just one click.
