pc issue MX UI issues... let's make a list!

5 posts in this topic

I've been forever complaining about some of the UI issues in MX. While things have improved since MX4, there are still some things out of place, or just plain not updated because of whatever reason. So in the same spirit of the Typo's, grammar issues etc... lets make a list! thread... here we go with MX UI issues...lets make a list!! Although somehow I don't think it will get the same response as the other thread... of which also has been somewhat slow to fix issues of late...

 

So off we go...

Lock button has text lower than the Security button

A message about Chrome?? Not sure how this came up, nor have I seen it more than twice, but still i'll add it in

Reader mode:

The search bars are different in Maxnote and Passkeeper.

In Maxnote - Colours are lighter, smaller text, different magnifying glass icon

Choose one style and make them the same.

Different heading style compared to downloader/ABP/clear browsing data/sniffer dialogs etc.

In QA setttings, "background" is cut off even though there is plenty of room for the (?) to be moved to the right:

More to come...

Once they've been looked at it would be nice if the UI could get a slight make over. Currently it's very static, buttons are either on/off, there's no movement. Add some animation (eg. fade in/out) when moving over tabs/buttons. Opening/closing tabs is very, very jerky compared to almost every other browser.

 

The latest Firefox looks amazing, animation on hovering over the tabs, a colour flourish when a tab is loaded, animated refresh button, fades on menus. Even just the fade on the text in the tab bar when the titles are too long - it looks better than the ellipsis (...) that Maxthon uses.

All very small things, but they complete the experience and makes the whole browser look very polished and complete.

The new Maxnote style is nice. The animated drop shadows when hovering over items is a nice touch. Hopefully that starts making it's way into the rest of the browser over time.

side bar notes icon and favs icon show "favs and notes" dir but with a different result, maybe depending on the way  you saved the content by using the bee icon  ?

it's very confusing, obviously I have some favs inside "notes" and some notes inside " favs"...

I know many people associate the "blue e" with internet, but it doesn't mean that Maxthon needs to give IE any more promotion. Change the IE logo to either:
a generic globe icon:

or the document icon showing that Maxthon is associated with htm files  etc.

or a Maxthon M:

Same goes for MX on Android (and probably iOS)
