Quick Access page loading issues

24 posts in this topic

The main enemy of the user is the on-line quick access page - pc-newtab.maxthon.com

Dev's do not care about the constant complaints that the browser is loaded very, very long due to on-line QA page.

Dev's do not respond to requests - 

Dev's live in their own world...  unfortunately...

The offline feature has been restored. 

When? Where is this offline/online switch? If this is true, then millions of Max's users will have a great celebration.

Shut off the network, open new tab page.

That's not what I meant. I wrote about something completely different. When you start the browser, it always takes a very long time to connect the server where the QA page is located. In any case, Maxthon makes a request to https://pc-newtab.maxthon.com . Turning off the network does not give anything. It is necessary to turn off the request to the server. Make QA page completely autonomous from the network and synchronize only on the user's request.

What is there to discuss? Loading Quick Access page locally will always be faster than downloading it form some server in Cina or anywhere else in the world.

I have 100/10 connection and starting Maxthon sucks every day.

Hi, Tony! It does not matter -  you change the QA page or not.  Even in offline Max tries to connect to the "China" (the server is located in US - IP 151.139.241.18 and simple ping from USA is 30x faster compare to my location) server first (https://pc-newtab.maxthon.com ) We don't need this.  We need:

Posts related to QA loading were split from the original thread. Was way off topic from the original.

I understand why they've done this, having your data everywhere is the "latest thing". It's no doubt handy if you login elsewhere to have your data there, but it seems odd that QA doesn't have a local only option.

As shown in the image above, almost everything else, from settings to extensions and favourites, all have the option to sync or not, yet QA - which is basically a riff on favourites - doesn't get that option?

Odd to say the least.

But they do have a fallback to still show the cached version if the site can't be accessed. Although the talk now seems to be more the time it takes to download/display, rather than it not displaying at all, which I believe was the problem previously.

Also odd that the fix is relatively simple looking from the outside in, yet it can't/won't be implemented.

Add a check box to the sync page and the code in nutshell would be:

If SyncQAbox = True (
	goto syncQA()
    ) else (
    goto loadQAcache()
    )
End if

Don't forget users who never login and don't need or don't want to sync Quick Access at all.

That's me. But in my testing the page loads instantly when using guest mode.

If i was using QA in guest, i'd have nothing to complain about.

It will be fine to hear the dev's and Jeff. Or will everyone quietly forget about the "problem"?

At least dev's will answer? Can we hope for the off-line QA function?

Hopefully it will be implemented for ALL users, as many who have an account and synchronize, as those who do not want / have an account, and even then, the request is made to said page  https://pc-newtab.maxthon.com of QA :wink:

They will plan to develop this function after the 8th of October 2018, but I cannot confirm the date of this new version which has this function.

an update on the time scale would be useful - this year - next year or when Maxthon10 is released
