Review: Change the way you surf with cloud browser Maxthon

Start reading the news on your Mac at home, and then pick up where you left off on your smartphone or tablet from the train using Maxthon for Mac.

Maxthon for Mac offers everything one would expect from a fully-featured Web browser, with a few innovative features you won't find anywhere else--yet. Cloud Push is the application's real standout, though a lack of documentation and support really hinders the learning curve.

Maxthon for Mac installed with ease, and we were online surfing in no time. The browser's uncluttered interface, similar to Google Chrome's, leaves plenty of room to display Web sites, though a full-screen option is also available. The lack of Help files within the app, or on the official Web site, left us pushing every button and scanning every menu in search of its much-touted Cloud functions. Eventually, we figured it out and everything functioned as promised. We browsed a random site, right-clicked, and selected Cloud Push. Here we were given the option to push this site to our cloud, to a specific device, or to a friend. We pushed to our iPhone's Maxthon installation and within seconds it beeped with a notification. We fired up the app on the phone and there was a new tab already open, loading the site we'd just sent. Additionally Cloud Push also worked with individual elements on a Web site, like a picture. Downloaded files could also be saved to our cloud, making it easy to access them from several locations.

Maxthon for Mac offers a solid choice for professionals or students, who find themselves surfing the Web from multiple devices during the day.
