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

13 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"...

also missing tooltips

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)

if you remove favs and notes buttons from address bar, they become inactive and grey in sidebar (no other choice than redundant or disabled...)

Just installed Mx5.1.4.1700 and really liked the new design though there are some issues to be expected, some of which are already posted.
Since I've just installed this version, I only encountered a few issues and will probably encounter more as I explore using the browser.
Here are some of the issues:

  1. The new tab opens a tab refreshes once clicked, unlike the previous versions which has it preloaded and doesn't have to open a new tab. This issue slows down the browsing speed because you have to wait for the new tab to load. It's better if it was like the previous version's.
  2. The address bar doesn't have the feature as the previous version where it only shows the website address and aligned center. In addition, entering an address on the new tab only searches it on the search engine(as already mentioned on another thread).
  3. Maxnote is opened in new tab when it can just be opened as notes mode where it is easier to use instead of switching tabs. Additionally, instead of just Maxnote, why not add the other tabs of uu.me too since the user tab on the upper left side from previous versions is removed in this version. It will be easier to access this way.

I have no problems with the smaller icons, sidebar, and status bar because it gives more space to the window

That's all I can find right now. Will be posting more if I encountered more

I have Facebook and Animes TV open upon the launch of Mx5 but it caused a bug where Facebook is only shown in the browser. If you take a look at my tabs, Facebook tab is closed and AnimeTV has the facebook icon. I kept switching tabs but facebook is the only page shown. I tried refreshing the page but it doesn't refresh the page shown(tab refreshes but page doesn't). Browser crashes then after.

Found another bug related to new tab.
This time when I browsed for Maxthon Forum since I spotted one before this

Maxthon bug 2.png

Once I opened Maxthon Forum, same bug from before appeared but now, when I click on the page, it switches to the tab on the left of this tab
The other bug is I have some missing Recent visited sites. After closing the tab, I tried restoring some and noticed that it wasn't on the list
