    "Registration Sucks!!!!"

    September 30, 2012  |   By jball345

    Version: Maxthon Cloud Browser 3.4.5.2000

    Pros

    Still trying to figure it out. I've been trying to get registered for awhile, so I really haven't found any pro's yet.

    Cons

    Well, let's see where do I start.
    1) When I went to their website to download the software for my Windows PC, I thought it would be really easy to do. Well. that is not so. There was not a big "Click Here to Download" button. Instead, the button that is on-screen what me to provide my Facebook ID. Well, I'm not going to do that with a company that I have never heard of. So, I have to search and scroll all the way down to the bottom of the page to find the link that would allow for a direct download.
    2) After the install of the product, I opened the browser for the first time and was prompted to register for an account in order to save my bookmarks and other settings across browsers. However, there was a warning message that stated something along the lines of "accounts opened through the browser interface could have problems in other versions of the browser beside the currently installed version". The only other option was to register for a free acct at the company website.

    Summary

    You would think that the issues described above were the end of it, however that was not the case. During the registration process at the company's website, I accidentally input my email address incorrectly and clicked Submit. Once I realized this, I clicked on the Profile link to update it with the correct email address.

    As luck would have it, I can update any other aspect of my account, however there is absolutely no way to update my email address. When I visited the Help diectory, I discovered that the only solution is to contact support via email to delete your account. Additionally, it is stated that support will not update an incorrect email address, they will only delete email addresses that are input incorrectly.

    So, I wish that I could give Maxthon negative stars however that is not an option.

    My best recommendation is to make sure you have enough time and patience before embarking on this installation and configuration of this web browser because it is not polished and lacks the finesse of the other more established browsers of their competition.

    I cannot say anything regarding their web browsers' ability to load pages quickly since even if that is true, Maxthon needs to desperately rethink their workflow regarding the initial signup process. It is not engaging, it does not capture the customer, it does not instill confidence in the software, it is not easy to use, and most importantly it is not efficient.

    I can only hope that the experience gets better over time. And that your experience will be far better than mine.

    "Not As Good As I'd Hoped"

    September 6, 2012  |   By IziEzi

    Version: Maxthon Cloud Browser 3.4.2.3000

    Pros

    Fast
    I liked the numerous choices of skins

    Cons

    --Flash didn't work at all with it, on my computer at least. Supposedly there was a way to fix it, but it just screwed up my computer and Flash for my other browsers.
    --While it does have a cookie blocker, it doesn't allow for anything in-between accepting them or blocking them. So many sites require cookies, but I don't like leaving my browser open to accepting 3rd party cookies.
    --It took me a while to figure out all the icons and where to find settings, etc.

    Summary

    I was very excited to use try this browser, it got such high rating from CNet and was listed as one of the best browsers, but the issues with Flash made this browser useless for some of my favorite sites and for Facebook games.

    "Good Alternative to the Bloated, Big-Box Browsers"

    August 26, 2012  |   By otiamaria

    Version: Maxthon Cloud Browser 3.4.2.3000

    Pros

    * Maxthon is customizable without being overly done.
    * Not just one search engine, but MANY, and if they don't provide it, you can get it anyhow.
    * Shows only content that's relevant to YOU.
    * Themes available.
    * Has quick access to whatever you need on your computer. One click of a pre-assigned button can automatically open Microsoft Paint.

    Cons

    As of yet, I have not come across any. Smooth, fast searching. This is a browser that is concerned that you get the best BROWSING experience available. They give you extras, don't get me wrong, but the main focus is successful, fruitful browsing, and MAXTHON DELIVERS.

    Summary

    Google got stricken from my browser choices when they jacked over 700 of my photos and videos and put them in a public Picassa album without my knowledge or consent. Yahoo was ok. But they began to spam up my email and thought they would be "better" at sorting it then I am. Not only that, but installing Axis beta caused me a HUGE headache. IE? Nuh-uh. Safety issues there.
    Firefox is still ok with me, although a little buggy at times.
    Other browsers are EXTREMELY limit4ed or OVERLY intrusive.....and then you find Maxthon, and a perfect balance is struck. I still have it installed and have no plans to stop using it. Worth downloading? Yes.

    "Very Good Browser"

    July 9, 2012  |   By Araha

    Version: Maxthon Cloud Browser 3.4.1.1000

    Pros

    Fast browser! Attractive home page with lots of news and pics!

    Cons

    Not come across any so far!

    Summary

    Just downloaded ver 3.4.1.1000 and put to use. I have XP. I have had no prior experience with Maxthon. This is the first time, and I think I will stick to it. Browsing is fast when the grass is lush green!
    It is more than a browser catering to the need of being up-to-date with the latest world news, weather, etc. like Yahoo or MSN home pages, with an easy access to CNN, BBC, NYtimes, and so on. Classification of variety of subjects and direct access to their respective sites! Attractive page layout! Import/export of bookmarks! I think nothing is lacking!
