  1. Hello NaxthonJeff and a happy new year.

    I have been wondering two things about *.mx5skins:

    1) Isn't it time to post the mx5skin SDK tutorial in the public Skin Forum here, so that others can make use of it?


    2) How about finishing the skin maker so that mods can be made to both UIMain.dat and UIHuge.dat (and even page.dat for some skin makers)?  I'd be OK with just UIMain/UIHuge mods, since I've not ventured into page.dat mods, though I have used some in Mx4 days.

    That's it for now.  I really hope to see complete mx5skin support finished.

    Have a good day,


  2. If that’s all the users want, they will not choose Maxthon. Users want EVERYTHING. You can only speak for yourself. ;-) And actually no browser has been there. Try Googling “Chrome crash”, “Firefox crash”, “Opera crash”, “IE crash” and do it again, replacing “crash” with “slow”. I am glad you find a version that suits you well. But we will continue to improve/innovate instead of staying at a version. Developing the best product is always a way in progress.
  3. Dear Jeff, I like your Dev Team. ;)


  4. It’s a users browser, but not a ‘some users’ browser. It seems everyone think he/she can represent “The User” and the dev team shall develop the product as ‘he/she’ wishes. What if what you suggest is not majority user wants? Who to blame if there is something wrong ? I believe it’s always me and the team. Product design is not as easy as it feels. As the dev team, we have to think beyond users. The reality is not always the same as it looks like. For example, people always say how good mx2/mx3/mx4 is. But I remember how many blames appear with these product. It’s more like how my father always say how good the old time is, like 50s,60s. Remember, you always see negetive posts in forum is because people with no problem will not come to report anything. From our backend, mx5 has much less crashes rates than mx4 and probably mx3. If you think because Maxthon is not as big as Google, we cannot do SDK. You can say it again with anything we do. Just because we are not as big as Google, we have to be careful in choosing what to do. We are not that failure resistant as Google. If Google does something wrong, it can just shut it down which happens many times. But if we did something wrong, Maxthon is gone.
  5. why chrome has SDK when firefox is already on market? maxthon SDK has API to acess Maxthon only features.
  6. The priority of Maxthon is always perfmance/bug fix. It already has a lot of build-in features.Upgrading current features follows. Brand new feature will be carefully selected. Unless we feel the feature will benefit most users, not just a small group, we will not add it. The best place of these features are addons. We may put more time upgrading addon SDK than building every feature by ourselves, which may be an endless task (just check how many cool ideas in firefox/chrome addons). Thanks Jeff
  7. The new one will take a different path than Maxthon. It’s designed for people who have used to Chrome, not mean to replace Maxthon. And it will be more focus on blockchain related features . Maxthon will continue act as the All in One package, feature rich browser. The new one will not be Maxthon branded. It will be released under a non-profit foundation. I am not sure what do you mean “three separate lists”. I suppose after CEF upgrade, the unsupported site will not support Maxthon.
  8. Thanks all for the concern. I admit there is some disconnect between dev team and the forum users. Let me brief what we did for the past several month. We are working on adding Chrome addon support. And it turns out it will be much easier to have it in a seperate product, like Nitro, than in Maxthon. And we also did some research with blockchain technology. We decide to build a separate product, continuing Nitro product line (may with a different name). The product will support Chrome addons from the beginning, adding blockchain technology, being cryptocurrency friendly. We have a lot of new ideas about how to use browser to build a decentrolized internet. We will continue to improve Maxthon as well. Some improvements are being cooked, like Translation, Snipper and Quick Access. We also upgraded the browser core to bing up-to-date engine, improved performance. There are a lot to expect. Thank you again Jeff
  9. The problem is we don't have valid certificate for these sites.Do you know how to get them? Maybe you could record a video to show the problem ?
  10. Could you give a site we can test the problem ?
  11. Who's calling me ? I hear your voice in my dream
  12. Hey, do you have any website that "We" could use to reproduce the problem? The sites in above posts just don't display any certificate dialog on any browser. Maybe they require special login information.
  13. Hello ! (Add-on Dev)

    Please go through SDK first and if you have questions, feel free to post them here.
  14. Where are my password?

    Can you use mx5(portable version) and import your mx4 magic fill data ? mx5 could have fixed a lot of bugs in mx4.
  15. PushBullet for Maxthon? Or Like Extension?

    The quickest way to send an webpage to mobile via mx5 is through QRCode. Then you can use mx5 android/iOS to scan the code and get the page.
