request Support for windows notifications/toasts

4 posts in this topic

Maxthon doesn't have any way of notifying users of complete/failed downloads unless you keep open or open the download manager.

Maxthon should use the notifications/action centre in windows to show when downloads complete/fail etc.

Info here from MSDN

So no interest in doing something that's makes MX more user friendly or standardised with OS features?

I can answer only about myself.

1. I hate Windows10's notification center =)

2. I'm using external download program due to Maxthon's inability to regulate download speed.

So, I'm really neutral to this suggestion

So don't use it. Doesn't mean having a toast popup wouldn't be handy even for those that don't use the notification centre.

Are there any browsers with advanced download management? I don't think so? The big 5 only have a download list to review and have easy access to the downloaded files.

I don't think MX should try and offer something more complex considering there are programs dedicated to this that would do a better job. What they should be doing is spending time on fixing/adding some of the basic features that were removed in the 4.4 > 4.9/5.0 change, along with polishing up some of the rough edges of the UI.
