  1. Get Up MAXTHON !

    6 is said to be coming - will it be too late - i think it probably will for the majority of international users who seem to have all but abandoned Maxthon if this place is anything to go by - Chinese users may support it which i think has been the target user for a long time as to contributing - why? - what has Maxthon got that the many other browsers out there cannot offer with a little work - imo Maxthon has 2 feet stuck in the past - unless 6 uses a standard core that will continue and if it does then its just another browser of which there is endless choice it seems to me Maxthon as we know it is dead - it will take something special to change that and past history tells us that wont happen - we have had addons and initiatives that no one wants that were there to attract users - i want to be wrong but i dont see anything changing if Jeff was interested then he would comment - he is conspicuous by his absence as are all at Maxthon we should plan a wake and be happy for what Maxthon was and move on
  2. MX5 PC Beta Release 5.3.8.1600

    too little too late - a few bugs fixed that in truth i doubt most users did not know existed and its taken 3 weeks for that how old is the core - that needs updating - work on all old versions should be stopped - they are of no importance - any new development should be on the next incarnation of Maxthon - that should be urgent and something should be out for testing now however raw it is
  3. New version of maxthon ??

    i agree with that in many ways - and my new browser of choice leaves a few things that i miss BUT - the core is up to data and is updated as soon as a new one is issued not months later - that must be better for security some addons - especially adblockers are better and fully up to date and there is choice i have worked out the UI on Vivaldi so changes are possible to what i want so have changed but will continue to look here for 6 and see what that brings to the table
  4. Save as Image

    why do you have to uninstall - just install the latest version as a portable install to test the feature you want - it will then run independently of the installed version
  5. New version of maxthon ??

    maxthon and vivaldi - modding the Vivaldi UI is not as easy for me at least as its js rather than HDML - but its no less configurable than MX if you know js or use their support which is good - as to the development tem are you saying two and a half people or 25 - whichever how is that relevant - the impression is the the development team of MX is a couple of studends doing the odd hour now and again - sure thats not true bur-t input from any team is conspicuous by its absence all software is bugged and never complete i am told by Jeff - the key thing surely is if those bugs matter
  6. New version of maxthon ??

    seems to me a poor reason not to move - the hack may well work - not tried it as i have never trusted maxthon passkeeper so have no passwords to transfer from it - but its a one time effort to manually transfer all the passwords or just start again as you log into sites with passkeeper passwords - most [all?] sites have password reset - use that maxthon is/has become yesterdays browser as long as it continues down the path it has chosen imo - if and when 6 arrives with i assume a standard core it has a mountain to climb - in china it might still have a following - that seems to have almost gone elsewhere
  7. New version of maxthon ??

    not that i know of - i think its something you have to do manually - from what i have seen of vivaldi its worth the effort
  8. New version of maxthon ??

    you should let them sort it No1 - bugsir has little else to do here - but i guess they would not bother so the place might even look busy!
  9. New version of maxthon ??

    i think its dead - maybe they are working on maxthon 6 - as sure as hell they will tell us nothing i think the new version is called vivaldi
  10. MX5 PC Beta Release 5.3.8.1300

    they seem to be confused when it comes to testing - one build will go here so is on general release the next goes into the testing area only to be released 24/48 hours later on general release - tat after little or no feedback and certainly no bug fixing there is talk of a testing team - whoever they are they are not here and by the state of some of the releases they dont pick up bugs or if they do Maxthon look at them as reference only just take it as it is and dont ask questions is the best option - even if you do ask questions they never answer them
  11. works fine on 8.1100 - no idea on earlier versions
  12. new 5.3.8 is slow in coming - any idea when we will see it - the time its taken from the last release must [surly] mean it will have all bugs fixed
  13. not exactly sure what you are asking - are you saying stylish does not work if thats what you are saying i can only say it works for me that said it can be difficult to get it working so comeback with a clearer question and i will get some info - its not straight forward and a while since i looked at it
  14. I'm disappointed

    nothing new here - in fact nothing to be seen - i thought you were going to post something new but then why would you?
  15. I'm disappointed

    what????????????????
  16. I'm disappointed

    has the browser been given up on - not if you believe the BS from china - trillions of users - well a few less than that - where they are other than in the mind of the marketing dept and developers is anybodies guess it works and is updated now and again - new features are added that nobody asks for or wants other than the company skins - they are possible - if you want them then its a learning curve - the company seem to think they are not important and put forward that a colour change is a skin dont expect much from this place - it seems to be drawing its last breaths
  17. thats a relief - its good to know that effort can be put into moving a graphic 2 pixels whilst all the REALLY important bugs and requests continue to be ignored did it take all the devs to fix this - that said all the devs may just be a part timer drafted in now and again
  18. sure as a bug that will go to the top of the list and get every dev working on it other more important stuff can wait
  19. Stylish for Maxthon and spying

    stylish has been updated a number of times on the extension centre - checking the version listed is 3.0.4 non of the updates have ever worked for me and others that post comments the answer has been to stick with version 2.4.3 which whilst old works - i just keep the 2.4.3 extension write protected so any update does not work whether this get round the problem you state i have no idea but hopefully so
  20. MOVING TABS TO BOTTOM (OR ANY)

    the only efficient way to do any skin mod is to do it yourself - that means learning how shins are done but until they make skinning as MX3 every update has the potential to change mods so its virtually impossible for those who mod skins to keep up tabs at he bottom is easy enough - like i said above its not rocket science
  21. Small fonts on some pages

    BUT - [add sarcasm smilie] thats how they seem to work - add something that nobody wants whilst old bugs go on and on and requests that have been around for yeas are ignored
  22. addons are great BUT all those who seemed to understand how to make them seem to have left - the problems with MX5 and the thought that talking to the company was like talking to the wall sent those users elsewhere same with those who contributed themes - the difficult way to add themes being one problem - another being the state of MX5
  23. maxthon devs have always ignored users - when was the last time we saw a dev on here - all we see is bugsirs who patronise - they come and go like summer snow so have no insight into whats been asked before the bottom lines are the browser is free as are all others - if it works for you then expect no more - you can but nothing will happen Jeff talks a good story but follows nothing up - too busy with crypto-currency or whatever to dirty his hands with this place and the user base that gave him what he has long term users are leaving which is not good - input here is all but dried up - it does need a statement from Jeff or whoever but we all know that is unlikely to happen in any meaningful way apart from whoever is sitting in the bugsirs chair this week telling us that the users are important - more platitudes - we have heard it all before
  24. i dont understand their logic at the moment - seems they fix one or two bugs and release a new version - no one from here is testing anything so they must now do all testing internally and it would seem not very well
  25. MOVING TABS TO BOTTOM (OR ANY)

    its not rocket science - it cannot be as i can do it - its worth learning to get the skin as YOU want it
