"Refined, fast, customizable and with some unique features"

June 25, 2006  |  By unimatrix0

 |  Version: Maxthon 1.5.3 build 18

Pros

Some stuff I use every day and I love:

Built-in banner/ad blocker. Awesome stuff, I love this thing. Also you can close tabs by using the middle mouse button. Create tabs by double-clicking on the empty tab space. Extremely convenient features.

Overral it's extremely fast and responsive. Nice interface( could be better see below), selectable search engine. Loads of customization features.

Cons

The pervasive integrated interface is a bit bothersome; I wish it were less so.

If this browser had vertical thumb tabs such as Omniweb for Mac, this browser would kill.

Also, a minor point, customizing toolbars is kinda archaic (from a Mac perspective), could be much more modern.

I hope the developer doesn't stall in innovation like Firefox did, which I imagine got bogged down by its growing open source community.

"All the flaws, none of the functionality."

June 22, 2006  |  By pidey

 |  Version: Maxthon 1.5.3 build 18

Pros

Granted, it does have more support for plugins and skinning is easier than in IE, and tabbed browsing is also nice.

Cons

Still lets in as much spyware/viruses/malware as IE.

Has all other flaws of IE.

Doesn't block spyware as well as firefox browser does.

"THE best"

June 06, 2006  |  By hitman3266

 |  Version: Maxthon 1.5.3 build 18

Pros

this is the best browser i have tried, i have tried every top browser to date. this has the LOWEST memory usage, it opens up immediately, the AD HUNTER works amazingly, it can block every ad on a page and you will never know it was there (it removes the space the ad was in) it also blocks activeX meaning you wont get spyware being downloaded (you can turn it on obviously), download it, customize it, and enjoy

"This is the fastest browser I have ever used!"

June 01, 2006  |  By Dr Beauchamp

 |  Version: Maxthon 1.5.3 build 18

Pros

Amazing!!!Firefox is a slug compared to this.I like the ad blocking features.I like the fact it's based on IE (but faster and more secure) so sites will always look as they should.You can skin it,add useful plugins.It seems 'browsers wars' is solely built on hype and Firefox although capable has disapeared from my desktop.....

Cons

Ask Mozilla and Microsoft....I'm sure they'll have some 'Cons'
