Building a Better Web Browser

By Blane Warrene

Some interesting theory from a former Internet Explorer program manager who is now out on his own as a product design and project management consultant.

Sometimes it is a breath of fresh air to step back and take the 10,000 foot view of a topic — and perhaps see a perspective at first glance we might disagree with.

    Certainly an interesting read. Although I’d disagree with a lot of what Scott says :) The article also starts poorly with a typo on the first line hehe

    I think something close to the perfect browser is avant browser. It uses the ie layout render but it has taken care of most security flaws

    If only Avant Browser didn’t crash every five seconds. It is doubtful that any one program will be perfect for everyone nor fulfill 100% of everyone’s needs.

    I’ve been using Avant Browser exclusively for quite a while now and I’ve never had it crash (yet).

    well the new avant browser 10 is kinda buggy. odd because avant 9 was really stable

    Haven’t tried Avant yet, but since Internet Explorer’s layout engine isn’t very good (as a designer when I ever have to fix an odd standards compliance bug on one of my pages it is for ie) it doesn’t sound like avant would be all that good.
