Maxthon Browser 184.108.40.2060
Move over Firefox, we have a new speed demon in town with Maxthon Browser 3. A very lightweight Internet browser, Maxthon offers many features you’d expect to find in a modern browser with an extremely fast and well-built backend. Upon installation, you’ll be greeted on the first run with the option to setup the Maxthon Passport which syncs your favourites and other settings anywhere you install it.
On the technical side, Maxthon actually utilizes two display engines, those being Trident and Webkit. Version 3 supports private browsing, per-page audio muting (most versions, actually) and language translations to name a few. One of the coolest built-in features of Maxthon 3 is the featured safe browsing powered by Kingsoft.
On testing the newest version of Maxthon, we were very (very, very) pleased to see that the interface has been cleaned up and up until now, CSS support seems flawless.. this is probably because it takes the best from two of the most popular display engines. Smart.
When comes to support for addons and skins, Maxthon doesn’t let down. Support for addons in this branch of Maxthon will be implemented in November 2011, but a slew of different plugins exist for previous versions. While the userbase definitely isn’t as large as Chrome or Firefox, the community around Maxthon does the best they can and plugins from News to Email Alerts, Development.
