Mx doesn't support Chrome extensions.

Due Maxthons API's limitation/ restrictions it's almost sure that we never get such extensions like uBlock or for example VPN addons.

Unless something will change in the future.

Yes, I'm sorry. Why not, when MX5 is like the old Opera browsers. And now even Opera is Chrome and Vivaldi  wants to gimmick like Opera is his and not yet always works with all extensions... But other stories are about. Maybe MX5 has some interesting features, like screenshots, etc. but important extensions are still missing because the browser is not as widespread as chrome or Firefox. You can't export bookmarks still not in Beta 6 and no one knows when. Automatically translate as in chrome always still do not.

maxthon is not chromium and wasn't safarian, just use same engines old uses webkit, new - blink, so why chromium extensions are not usefull till extensions creators adopt/port them to maxthon

You apparently don't understand that :wink:.

Maxthon doesn't have the required API calls to allow it to function. So unless the Maxthon dev's decide to do something about it, it seems there's nothing the uBlock team can do.

So in short version - without that (API calls) even ublock devs can't do nothing!

This was asked/ repeated and answered a thousand of times... Use search next time.

Maxthon for Windows does not support plug-ins for Chrome because it is built on a modified,own version of Webkit / Blink.

This is not "pure" Chromium like it is in Mac and Linux version of Maxthon and other chromium-based browsers

This is the reason why Chrome plugins don't work with Maxthon

The team of people that offer support are refusing to answer my questions about the Bookmarks.  Is that because it's going to be possible to import a Favourites file in the same way we could previously do it ?   I honestly don't get any feedback from them.

The only option we have at the moment is to import the Favorites from a file. But when they are imported in this way they are all in a single folder on the top Task bar.  They used to be aligned across the top bar with a nice little arrow to the far right hand side that I could click on and show all of my Boomarks. 

Hope it comes back because I can't use the browser with having hundreds of bookmarks and do each one individually to make them appear like they used to.

I hear you Northern, MX5 looks great, but Infobox is unfathomable. I'm sticking with Maxthon 4 for now

Right or left, click above or below the window. But I think it's good that the window stays up. Great thing.

I know that, but i don't think it's a good that window stay up. Maybe an option for auto-close?!

Yes, maybe you could do in the settings, good idea. MX-Team ?
Sometimes it bothers even if it stays open.

You can just skip the new features, and use M5 almost like M4.

Speed dial problem:

 

Icon aspect ratio is inconsistent. Some look fine, some look stretched out horizontally. Some even show double in the folders.

Thanks, that did it, but I will not run without ABP. That's a main reason I use MX4-5.

 

ABP worked correctly  in MX4, so I hope it can be fixed in MX5. 

 

Thanks again,,,

important extensions

Hi Chantao, thanks for your interest, could you list some of the extensions that you think are important?

Since we are preparing for an extension hackathon in near future, your suggestions will be valuable.

All your posts in this thread are non sense... so far.

I don't know, why it's so hard to you to understand such a simple thing...

Check yourself on old mx forum or perform Google research if you want mr. Smart...man - you'll find ublock & ghostery devs statemen about creating extensions for maxthon.

How could they(devs) write a software code (even completely at new) when Mx "physically" doesn't have required elements(api's) to make their extension to work.

That clearly shows you don't know nothing about programming. It's not so easy as write a post on forum, lol.

Hi Northern, thanks for your feedback.

Do you mean that when you import a file, which contains folders of favorites in it, then they are shown separately outside the folders in the favorite bar on version beta6?

Hi martinstz, so you are asking that when open a site from a folder, in the meanwhile, the folder should be closed?

Hi bobad1, could you give me a screenshot to explain the glitch? That will be more explicit for me to understand :1f60a:

Hi, friend, do you mean that when you open bestbuy in MX4 with ABP on, there is no glitch?

1.) Clear Cache, Clear Cookies (I know 5 has it under settings, but from handling it's unfortunely), Xmarks if there doesn't return Export Bookmarks, Share with (like Shareholic) 

If you look at it precisely is not so much what you really need. Most of the time mx is already with me, so I have not left Maxthon all the years. It is faster than Firefox and more beautiful than Chrome.
