10 posts in this topic

Hello everyone 

I am very happy to share a thrilling news with you. Maxthon Browser’s CEO Jeff created a new Trello board to illustrate our future development more directly to our users! The main purpose of this board is to list the roadmap of our product for the next stage on public, which helps us to hear user’s voice better.

We sincerely welcome all of you to have a visit. We will regularly update this Trello board for the future product plan and here you can easily help us improve our product by voting for the listed features/items you like the most. Our product team will take your opinion into serious consideration and update our product accordingly. You can also subscribe this board to receive our latest messages and updates at the very first time.

Here’s the link for the Trello board:https://trello.com/b/ofOaTdxE/mx5-pc-public

Oh... It's good, but... times have changed... Now I need tool to protect my privacy: HTTPS Everywhere, Disconnect, Ghostery, Privacy Badger, etc.
I can add Disconnect lists to ABP (btw, why there is not EasyPrivacy?), but what about HTTPS Everywhere or any analogue? Look on Brave (we both know that you know what Brave is). Brave has build-in tools for HTTPS-connection only. This about it. Tooday you really need it, you need it more that other browsers. And think about VPN and proxy. You have clear settings, but... I'm not sure that I can trust any proxy from the web. What about own service or third-party solution?

I think this is something more than just "change ABP to uBlock"... ABP is not just extension, this is build-in tool and ABP Team (not MX) made it.
But you can ask uBlock developer about this. Because uBlock may be just add-on, like NoAds. And users will have choice.
I think any ABP improvements is more important question. Because this is still v.1.0.0 without manual blocking.

I hope there will be good core update, that will get new updates without staying outdated.

@A.S. You can add Easy Privacy and other Adblock subscriptions to Adblock from here. ttps://adblockplus.org/subscriptions

Yep. But users need popular lists directly in ABP. There are regional lists only.

Oh... I read your road map, and there is not what I was waiting for...

There are common phrases: improvements, optimization, update, upgrade, etc. But what does it mean? Because even if I don't like what you do with you browser, I still know that you're working. I know that I'll see some improvements, some optimization, some update and some upgrade. But what will be these? 

I saw 3 important things only: Nitro, Blink and extensions. And even these are not so clear...

Meh, nothing overly interesting. And more to the point, nothing that couldn't be done by posting on the forum, or a link on the forum to a page hosted by maxthon.com. Don't see the need for some other random site to have that info.

As for features/improvements... i've said it before, there is a whole section devoted to just that on this forum. All it takes is one person to spend 10mins and collate some info from it (and most of that is in the wishlist thread!). Although it is good to see a rough idea of what the plan is, what they're working towards.

The only thing that's vaguely eye opening is Nitro2 with Chrome extension support. If N2 gets it, then I can only imagine MX5 would follow shortly (or MX6?). If N2 is anywhere near useful + having .crx support, it might be enough to make users jump from MX5. Not sure if that's a good or bad thing!?

And i'm curious to see what the UX improvements turn out to be. Still lots of issues with UI imo.
