Extensions affect speed?

2 posts in this topic

Like other browsers the more extensions or add-ons you use, the more information the browser has to proccess. I was wondering if that's the same for Maxthon. I am running Maxthon 4.9.3.100 (Beta). Thank you in advance. :D

I can only imagine the answer is yes. But it would also depend on the extension and how they work and interact with the page. Ones that run all the time will obviously be eating up CPU time compared to ones that only run when the user starts them.

Ideally you'd only be running the extensions that you need, and not have 100 installed that rarely or ever get used.
