Editors' Review

+

A browser based on the Internet Explorer engine, Maxthon is probably something of a curiosity for most North American users. It never really caught on there, but elsewhere--especially China--it's one of the most popular browsers around. It renders pages fast and comes loaded with features, as if Firefox came with 90 percent of its most popular plug-ins.

All the basics are represented here, from tabbed browsing to skins to add-ons, and many of the rolled-in features make Maxthon hard to ignore. Some of our favorite features include rolled-in auto-form filling, the ability to set up bookmark groups that open on start-up--excellent for news or blogs, the ability to autoscroll Web pages, and pop-up and content filters for blocking ads and specific content formats you don't want. There are also customizable hotkey commands for such nifty features as auto-completing URLs, so if you type "download" and hold down the Ctrl key, it will auto-fill the "http://" and the ".com".

We also like the super drag-and-drop feature, which lets you directly select and drag keywords to a current Web page or directly to the address bar. Maxthon is fast, small, flexible, and easy to use, and the extra features make it a browser we highly recommend. This version, Classic, differs from the newer Maxthon in several ways--notably by being more stable and less customizable.

"Almost Works"

March 17, 2014  |  By acompuser

 |  Version: Maxthon (Classic) 1.6.7.35

Pros

Doesn't use a boatload of memory like other browsers. Tabbed browsing.

Cons

Lost of pop up ads no matter what the settings. The browser also reloads the pages after every few minutes. I am unable to view videos, read a page, or download from sites without an interruption.

Summary

After using this turkey of a browser, I am ready for a much better one.

"Pointless geeky version of Internet Explorer"

June 25, 2011  |  By spartain

 |  Version: Maxthon (Classic) 1.6.7.35

Pros

It's free - and nothing else

Cons

It's merely Internet Explorer with a different interface.
It's more cluttered than Internet Explorer.
A problem getting home page to appear on start-up.
It's rubbish.

Summary

If you run this all you are doing is running a more cluttered, more geeky version of Internet Explorer. After installation all of my settings, favourites, etc were there in this browser. Unless you like wasting your life away, it's a total waste of time. You would have thought these developers would have better things to do with their time.

"Conflicts with Opera"

May 08, 2011  |  By rareflorida

 |  Version: Maxthon (Classic) 1.6.7.35

Pros

It seemed fast when it worked.

Cons

I like Opera and there was a definite conflict. The problems I saw in Maxthon may have been caused by Opera, but I know the problems that started arising in Opera was caused by Maxthon. I kept the one I trusted.
