Avant Browser 10.1, build 40, works under Wine 0.9.10 with a few caveats. The 'Address:' bar jiggles (in both the View->Address Bar and 'Open a link' window). The 'Address:' bar has to be turned off (uncheck the View -> Address Bar checkbox) in order for the browser to start up fully. The up/down rail aren't properly painted, but you can navigate a 'cut-off' page with the up/down or page-up/page-down keys. But in general it works.
Old test results
The test results you have selected are very old and may not represent the current state of Wine.
Selected Test Results (selected in 'Test Results' table below)
Wise installer/uninstaller (absetup.exe/uninst.exe) - Never really
had problems with the installer. Will install the wrapper under Wine
emulating Win95 - WinXP.
Avant.exe - The browser can be run
with Wine emulating Win95 - WinXP, but perhaps the 'smoothest'
operation is when it's installed and run under Win95. Some websites
render (e.g. Freebsd.org, Netbsd.org, MSN.com) but others just don't go
anywhere (i.e. they just continue to load). It appears that the
webpages are downloaded, but aren't immediately rendered. After a few
seconds, if you stop the page loading, go back in the history, then go
forward to the page attempted to be loaded, the page will render
correctly. The browser also pops an icon into the SystemTray.
What does not
General: None of the keyword shortcuts for the toolbar work.
Clicking on them does work, but the keyboard shortcuts are no-goes.
None of the radio or checkboxes show whether they've been checked or
not. The Address: bar and the 'Open a Link:' dropdown flicker and don't
properly display the URL previously input.
A summary run-down of the toolbar commands:
File -> Save... : It's kind of hit-and-miss on full website pages you can save (saving just the plain HTML page works)
->Print Preview: Crashes the browser
->Send a Link: Doesn't do anything
->Exit: While this does close the browser, it never saves the exit
option selected. And Avant comes back up thinking it has crashed.
Edit ->Find on this Page...: doesn't work.
Browser Options...: doesn't show up fully. However, if the Systray
Avant Browser icon is right-clicked and 'Customize Tray Icon...' is
chosen, the Options page comes up fully.
3. Change to the Avant Browser install directory (default location is C':Program FilesAvant Browser').
4. Start the browser:
(See Note above if you're using a pre-0.9.8 Wine version)
5. The browser will start and a splash screen will be displayed. It'll appear the browser has stopped.
6. Click the 'View' toolbar menuitem and uncheck the 'Address Bar' option. If you can't see the toolbar, just click where the toolbar would be. Eventually, you'll a toolbar menuitem, and the other ones should show. Click 'View' and uncheck the 'Address Bar' option.
