    "Not what i was looking for."

    October 27, 2012  |   By newgamer2040

    Version: Maxthon 2.5.18.1000

    Pros

    Did seem to load pages as quick as Chrome sometimes faster.

    Cons

    I was unable to download a youtube video using sniffer,right click menu(download with maxthon)as many here claim.
    Tabs crashed 35% of the time.
    Tried to install Funmoods etc.(although I was able to opt. out of this)

    Summary

    I was very disappointed with the downloading capabilty of Maxthon and spent TIME researching this to no avail.
    After 24 hours I've uninstalled (left many files behind)and I now love Chrome much more.
    Bottom line is no I would not recommend Maxthon

    "better than Firefox chrome as it took their best option"

    May 21, 2012  |   By sajib801

    Version: Maxthon 2.5.18.1000

    Pros

    video streming is awesome .i have problem with crhome where problem with adding new pluggin & also video on youtube stopped in middle specially for Hd playing .For firefox i have to add atleast 5 add on to make it more comfortable like chrome but maxthon give all those built in .it has very little memory use even better than firefox .chrome is the worst browser when it comes to memory use

    Cons

    those who opens many tabs maybe more than 20( i think) then maxthon won't show the last tab instead have to go to scrollbar to visit those tabs .though i m looking for better addon on that .

    Summary

    if you don't open more than 20 tabs at a time then this browser could be better than firefox & chrome as you don't need add on to make it comfortable like chrome also you will not have the video streaming problem & too much memory usage problem like chrome

    Updated on Aug 29, 2012

    i have open five window each with 20 tabs so with all those 100 tabs over 10 hrs of continuous browsing still 1400 mb memory usage total as idle memore of my pc is 600 mb so for 100 tabs using 1 gb memory without a crash you can't expect any better from other brand browsers .its night mode is way better than those of firefox ,chorme .which actually help a lot for long use .its built in downloader can capture video which idm can't or site that don't allow idm to capture .so guess what you don't need anything more .

    "Not For Me, Better Browsers Out There"

    April 8, 2012  |   By Imogen7Ryan

    Version: Maxthon 2.5.18.1000

    Pros

    It's got a nice looking UI. It's different in that it is one not that common except in the Far east. It has a lot of Apps and customizes well.

    Cons

    The majority of the Apps are in a foreign language so if you don't understand the language you will have a hard time knowing what app does what.

    Summary

    I have tried many of the lesser known browsers to see if they offer something different or better but sadly they don't and the reason why the *big* hitters are at the top is because they really are the best.

    This is popular in Asia so if you are a native or native speaker then this will suit you well.
