    why is it necessary to join somewhere else to get this version - is this not the official forum of Maxthon - you have testers here and a by invite only tester section - what point does that serve if you push versions to anyone who joins the Telegraph group which is effectively public

    I'm watching the latest mx6 alphas, and I don't like the way it's going. Basically, if you don't implement the features that defined maxthon, I don't know what will be the reason to choose this browser over any chrome version or derivatives (each one with its own ideas and that define its browser, example of vivaldi, opera etc, to name a few) Losing faith for moments 😞

    I'm trying it out at the same time, it seems to be in portable mode. I haven't used the installer. It has left me with a rather cold feeling, as soon as I start it, what appears is a "chrome" appearance, then looking at the settings you can see that they are more or less like in maxthon. It is missing many things that characterized Mathon: - screen capture. - video downloader and control window - status bar with access to volume, double window, zoon, and all the information that was given from the memo, network, cpu etc.. - File Detector I think he needs "a lot" of work to be called "maxthon", otherwise he's just another chrome. Interestingly, the 360Chrome browser is more like maxthon than the maxthon 6 browser itself 😕 And although it is early because it looks like an "alpha" version the languages are a bit mixed. In my case, choosing Spanish, the configuration appears in English and also in Chinese.

    this is an english forum - easy to translate so why not do that - as to your comment i fully agree Many @ s followers of this great maxthon browser we are very eager to try the alpha and beta versions of the new maxthon 6. We would like to please send us a link to download it and so once and for all calm that monster called expectation we have inside. Please respond as I understand that at the end of February the alpha version appeared but we are already at the beginning of March and the uncertainty increases because we know when we will finally try the new maxthon 6.

    Thanks for the clarification my friends. It’s not hard to comprehend. It’s actully a common sense in building good product. Facebook started as a mischief to rate college girls. Google started as an internal tool. You can not design a product to please everyone, but always a certain kind of people, starting from yourself. Back to topic, although not seen by most people, I believe blockchain can help us build a honest world ( I really mean it in my presentation) and also help users get back their data from companies. That’s why we will build MX6. But it does not mean we will abandon users who don’t care. MX6 will be faster, compatible with MX5 and more importantly, compatible with Chrome, which means no annoying ‘please change your browser’ message, and bring massive Chrome addons to Maxthon users.

    And what about the mobile version of Maxton? Will there be new features for it? It would be good to have a sniffer, page translation and better night mode.

    This will be optional? Will there be any way for any user to opt out of the whole bigcoinc, biddata, bigXXX related theme that has the browser built in? We will be able to "be free" to choose if we want such options BIGxxx?

    Dear Maxthon users, You may already know that we are developing next major update of Maxthon browser, Maxthon 6. Here I want to share something information about it, including its value proposition, and how we will develop it. Value proposition: For existing Maxthon users, Mx6 will keep all Maxthon5 data and implement most useful features from mx5, and providing much better website compatibility, full chrome addon support, useful chrome features. For all users, Mx6 will be the world first Bitcoin powered browser, enabling users to explore and participate the next generation of internet - Metanet. More information about metanet can be found at bitcoinsv.com . Develop: The main browser features of mx6 will be developed based on a deeply customized chromium code base and existing mx5 codebase. All bitcoin related features will be developed by Maxthon team. Mx6 also has an open API to enable other developers to integrate their code. At Maxthon, we want to design the application of the future. Starting from 2003, Maxthon has been in the frontline of web innovations, today, seeing a new web is hatching from bitcoin(blockchain), we want to invite all Maxthon users to join this extraordinary movement. We can discuss all related information in this thread. We can discuss bitcoin here as well, but to learn more about bitcoin and metanet, the best place is bitcoinsv.com Jeff

    So does the beta version have an updated Chromium kernel? I am currently running v5.2.6.1000, and when I use the about-> check for updates function in the browser it tells me "your browser is up to date" even though there are numerous more recent builds available. But whether I try to download the most recent official release or the beta release, the download consistently fails with just a few KB remaining. I've even tried downloading the file with Chrome, but it also fails... How can I get an installation file if Maxthon itself can't download and refuses to update?

    I was a big user of Maxthon 4, Maxthon 5 not so much. I hope with the upcoming Maxthon 6 I can find a home for my browsing needs. I really welcome that Maxthon will support Chome add-ons as there are some add-ons that I always install no matter the chromium based browser. Even Microsoft stopped fighting it's corners and concluded if you cannot win then join. Currently I am using Opera and Chromium based Edge.

    Much@s seguidores de este genial navegador maxthon estamos muy ansiosos de probar las versiones alpha y beta del nuevo maxthon 6. Nos gustaría por favor hacernos llegar un enlace para poder descargarlo y así de una buena vez por todas calmar ese monstruo llamado expectativa que tenemos dentro. Respondan por favor ya que tengo entendido que a finales del mes de febrero aparecía la versión alpha pero ya estamos a comienzos del mes de marzo y aumenta la incertidumbre por saber cuando por fin probaremos el nuevo maxthon 6.

    I think you have misunderstood Jeff's comment. I'm quite sure Jeff means that his initial intention of beginning to develop Maxthon (MyIE2) was simply to please himself in that it was only meant to be used by him. He was dissatisfied with browsers he was using at the time and thought he could build one to better suit his needs. In doing so he also built one that other people also enjoyed. How this could make you sad is beyond me (unless,of course, you misunderstood what he meant).

    "I created maxthon to please myself in the first place"... now you made me sad. With a single superficial sentence you wrote off all the years I've promoted maxthon left and right to a simple "I don't care about the users, all I care about is myself". You had chance here to say something that would bring the community together, instead you did this. You know, I've defended Maxthon when it didn't work properly in MX3, I've defended Maxthon when it cheated in html5 test and I've spent countless hours arguing with Niels Leenheer about whether it's fair to simply remove maxthon from all the test results, I've defended Maxthon all the way until now when it came to every tough decision, every misstep when there were Nitro tryouts and unfunctional mobile browser versions, I did it all because of loyality and belief that Maxthon was different because you guys cared. But I guess I was wrong. And to mention the embracing of new technology and new ideas. Maxthon didn't innovate or bring new technology in years unfortunately. It became stale and outdated, so if embracing innovation is your goal, you have unfortunately failed. I wish you good luck with pleasing yourself, because you have lost me.

    Sorry to say this @MaxthonJeff, but from what you've said in the video, it seems you are not trying to develop the best browser for people anymore, you are simply making this a playground for crypto schemes. I've spend 30522 hours using Maxthon (that's almost 3.5years of real time) over the past few years. Started using it since the era of MyIE2 actually. But in the past years the development cycle of MX has slowed down to almost a full stop. Simple bugs persist tens of version and most requested features and functionalities are ignored. There is no innovation, no interest in upping the security, compatibility or speed of the browser anymore and now, by introducing even more unneeded gadgets,tools, wallets and protocols to MX6 coupled with using "heavily customized core" you are again sinking into the depths of unamageable dependencies, that will only slow down the browser and annoy the users. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE maxthon. As i've said above, i've been loyal to maxthon for well over a decade now. But you are simply ignoring what people want from you and that is costing you your users that are migrating over to Vivaldi, Brave and other similar browsers that actually care about opinions of their users and let them shape the browsers. You are a visionary, nobody can take that from you. But perhaps you should think about your users in the first place and create a product they want to use. And then, only then, make the bloatware something that can be added by plugins and not as a main feature. That's my five cents to the topic.

    OMG.... It's a MIRACLE! 1. Will I finally be able to come back to Maxthon, after stopping usage of Maxthon after "Maxthon Classic" due to the program becoming fat/slow/bloated, and losing good plugin support? This all caused me to stop using Maxthon and start using "360Chrome" instead which provided most of the features I needed in a Browser, i.e. much like Maxthon and nothing else out there, but also had Chrome plugin support. 2. The moment I saw the result of the new Maxthon I knew you guys needed to switch to Chromium instead due to the above reasons, but sadly it took you YEARS to do so, and I haven't been using Maxthon since Maxthon Classic. So, I'm very happy to see the change. I've been wanting my Maxthon back, 360Chrome was obviously missing a couple of things I liked with Maxthon. 3. Wth is with the "Bitcoin" gimmick? Guess I'll have to read through the thread to see, but honestly, this just seems dorky. Personally, I think you should just focus on making a BETTER Microsoft Chromium, stand above the rest like Maxthon/MyIE2 used to. Though, I'm okay with not being a shell anymore like they were, as long as we don't have the bloated crap of the recent Maxthon, as well the crashing crap of Googles Chrome, etc. 4. Microsoft Chrome Edge if they actually listen to me (unlike the ****'s of Google Chrome), implementing the missing features of Maxthon and 360Chrome, are you worried Maxthon will die? Is this part why the change, cause you've finally realized you've lost a lot of people, and seeing how the market's going? Of course, that's assuming the jerkwads will listen, but I suspect they won't like Google didn't, and the fact that Microsoft won't listen to people in relation to how we want Windows Updates to work, doing what THEY want instead. Anyway, looking REALLY forward to this.... I hope Maxthon can be my LOVE again like it used to be before the last several years crapshow. Thanks much...

    As for me, I still want to retain the Features: Sidebar Status Bar (Especially System Info for Up & Down Speeds) Night Mode (Possibly Improve) Developer Tools Resource Sniffer (Especially! Barely used but helps BIG time) Snap (Frequently used. Useful at all times). Lastly... Gmail Notifier Extension (Not sure if Chrome has a similar/better alternative but this is very useful to me) I'd probably still stick to Maxthon as my all around browser no matter the changes. It carries most of my browsing data and I feel more secured with Passkeeper than Chrome's. One concern would be LivesOne & LivesToken. As Mx6 will support BSV, LivesOne will probably be left out. Hope the feature is still the same, Reward for Browsing, but please, no eating away CPU usage. Browsers already consume a large amount of RAM. Don't make it harder.

    Hello, As says @karajan, the certificate ends 02/07/2020, it has to be renewed, it's the job of the web master of vidlii.com. The use of a certificate is to certify that the Web page you want to acces is genuine, so that the domain is not faked, but you always keep the right to bypass this, at your own risk !! So send a mail to the webmaster.

    Can someone explain how having blockchain tech in a browser makes it more secure? I (think) I understand how it works in relation to a transaction process, but what/how does it offer security in a browser context?

    Mobile version will be updated later. But don’t expect it comes with a lot of features because we don’t want it to be bloated. It may have some addons like ability, not finalized yet. Chrome store rule will not affect Maxthon features. We are considering to provide an additional store if we have resources to manage it.

    Yes, you will be able to do it. All extra features are done in the form of modules, it’s possible to disable these modules if you want.

    theres a post from bugsir saying all updates to MX5 are on hold as they are working on MX6 - no time scale or info given - so we wait and wait and i would guess wait some more in the mean time Vivaldi works for me - its skinnable with work and has an up to date core
