Any Internet browser that for sure will browse?

Any Internet browser that for sure will browse?  :tellme:

I am so annoyed with a certain page my various browsers only can figure out to open if the moon is in a special phase, or if the sun is in the right angle or what the heck the necessary environment may be. PLEASE recommend me an Internet browser that will open each and every page on the Internet!. I cannot change the page, but I can change what browser I am using. I don't care if it is ugly, or payware, or has a silly interface, as long as it can do what a browser is supposed to do first of all: Browse! It will most likely only be used without any addons or plugins - except I do need to watch a video on the said page.

^ I must say, the Avant homepage's praise makes me want to use that browser again! For a while Avant was my default browser maybe six years ago, but back then it was strictly a variation of IE, like today's "Avant Lite". This modern "trible engine"-system (called "Avant Ultimate") is very interesting. And Avant is also offering a one-click Video Sniffer!

Thank you, Target  :up:  I am installing Avant Ultimate right now.

FWIW that wasn't necessarily a recommendation.  I've used both those browsers but far to briefly to make any sort of comment

be interested to see how it goes for you though  :Thmbsup:

At first my newly found happiness didn't last more than a few seconds. At the end of the installing, the Chrome part was blocked by my security program, because Google never will respect privacy.

It is 4 at night around here, so I will go back to bed...

after an hour with Avant, my everyday browser Pale Moon (Firefox) is now faster than ever before. Avant is advanced,   but    it    is    n o t     f a s t  .

I think you're hosed. The number of engines out there isn't very large. I have to switch browsers for some sites. Yeah, it's a PITA, but... Thank MS for destroying the browser market. Now we have vultures there, and not much more.
