LOL I can't believe I read all the comments on the topic, but yeah, feature based my favorite version was 188.8.131.520 but it did crash a lot, 10 times daily at least, stability wise maxthon has improve a lot, I was the type of user who in the old forum wrote a lot of topics with suggestions and improvements that I belived could make a lot of people happy, a lot of them were implemented a lot of them didn't...
I could write a topic about some bug and find out 4 users had done the same, months ago and the bug may or may not been fixed.
I know and understand that is impossible to keep everyone happy, the same feature 2k people requested another 2k users will complain about it in the next day...
Thruth be said, the users who actually use the forum are not even then 10% of all the maxthon users, and there's now way to know what they like what don't, if they stopped using maxthon for a bug, lack of addons or just they didn't realized that you had to go to the forum to download the latest version and a lot of things stopped working for the same reason.
But I do believe that maxthon devs should put more attention to the forum users, because at the end of the day, we are here because we use the browsers and we want to make it better, because we care enought for the product to write a topic, to welcome new members and shared out knockledge to them.
Because at the end of the day the forum users are the ones who recommend maxthon to others, I had made a lot of people switch to maxthon, I'm always bragging about the snap tool and the maxnote wich I used daily and I really depend on them on my daily basis (like really really depend on them). The forum users are the spokesman of maxthon and keeping them happy is important because they are the ones who bring other people here and keep them here.
The reasons I've stayed with maxthon is because at some point I've felt listen, with chrome you could talk and no ones will even care, chrome devs are totally unaccesible, and maxthon devs used to enter the forum once in a while, at least 4 years ago they did... We came here, we complaing, praise, comment and still do, because we know they are some people to talk to, if we truly believed that coming to the forum was pointless we wouldnt be here in the first place.
So to summarize it, bring chrome extensions to maxthon, because the lack of them are making me go to firefox to do a certain task that I know they are impossible in maxthon c:
I haven't forgot
