  1. 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 securi

  2. with respect - do you really think the majority of people looking to choose a browser are interested in the above - they will not have a clue what you are talking about - i include myself in that - thats why the interest here is minimal - each new release gets downloaded a few time - nothing in real terms - the telegraph site/link you give has a couple of hundred contributors - where are the 700 million Jeff tells us are using Maxthon - gone i suggest you are developing a niche browser - it will have its core but that core will be minimal imo - and statements like Maxthon will provid

  5. when do you intend to update the core - the one used is many months behind todays release - changes in the core can affect the overall browser so whilst you are busy adding features and fixing bugs a new core could affect much of that

  6. I too remain very confused. You've set out why you've chosen BSV over the other blockchain protocols, and that seems to make sense. But you haven't answered the much more important starter question: what has a browser got to do with ANY kind of blockchain? Why do I want it? What benefit does it offer me? And how can a web browser be "built on" what I thought was a system of digital currencies?

  7. 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

  8. 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

  11. I just want to agree with @Tony (if I understood you well). I just need a stable, flexible, customized, contemporary browser with many features and extensions. I don't interested in any blockchain etc technology. I used Mx from MyIE times due to flexibility, customizing and lightweight. "Maxthon is a state-of-the-art, multi-platform web browser". That's all. If you want to build a platform for mining, blockchaining, etc you should name it smth else. Everything but the browsing should be optional.

  12. "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 t

  13. Totally agree! MX5 is feature rich and highly customizeable. MX6 is only Chrome clone. :( MX5 on modern core will be total win!

  15. Simply hiding a button does not disable the functionality you do not need. Once again - when will it be possible to completely remove the VBox from the browser? Jeff assured that VBox would be an extension that could be removed. Was that a lie?

Hahaha... they are not mocking us man.. haha.. it just takes time.. i for one have patience.. i have learned this through out time.. i know i need more patience cause sometimes i flip at people.. for example when they tell me why am i not fixing their car better or get an item faster from another country and then i want to tell them "if you want something done fast, do it yourself" or and "why dont you do it yourself then" but then i calm down and explain it to them cause they are not people that think for others... i learn how to put myself in another their shoes so i dont have to embarr

  19. Hello Maxers, First, we want to say "thank you" for everyone’s feedback during Alpha testing. We fixed a bunch of bugs and made many optimizations with your help in April. Here are the changelogs: Functions Optimized: 1.1 Account sync and login New tab page data of Maxthon 6 will separate from Maxthon 5, and it will have a separate cloud service and sync to it after importing the data from Maxthon 5 once at the first login. Improved the logic of data sync of the new tab page Added the function to merging data for users who has multiple accounts Adde

  20. 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

  21. 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

  22. 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.

  25. Don't worry, in a month or so, they release version 5.3.8.2xxx Beta, to fix this stable version As for version 6, in my humble opinion (I hope I'm wrong, seriously), I don't think it's going to be built, it's hard enough for them to get versions and fixes of these last ones, as to dedicate time to start a new project. What's more, the big support has always come from this community, where is it?, then in better places, obviously

  28. Hello, just trying mx6 6.1.0.1100 here. Looks very promising. It's a totally different browser from Maxthon 5: you can feel it's some sort of chrome but on a very embryonic stage of development. There are lots of missing feature to be categorized as a Maxthon Browser Software like we all know and we all used before (network sniffer, video player popup, direct video link download, bottom status bar indicator, ...), but it look promising, although I was expecting I could move the portable version between different PCs without having to worry about extensions to be deleted (becaus

  29. Dear MX developers: I am a loyal Maxthon user since the MyIE2 times, I would like to make some requests / comments: Please, MX6 forces me to keep logged in to the Maxthon account. I cannot, as in MX5, enter the account every time I open the browser with the assurance that no one will access my sites, notes, passwords as happens in others browsers, even if my pc was stolen. all Extensions, themes and configurations are lost when exiting the MX account and re-entering and must be reinstalled again!! I'd would like that the status bar to return, with all its tool. It is ver

  36. Dear Staff, 1. BUG (possible) - If MX6 is closed without opening the pages in the Last session page(mx://last-visit/), on next opening of the MX6, the Last session page is not available anymore. This is not the case in MX5. 2. Suggestion for Implementation - Status bar (Very useful for traffic monitoring and the rest...) 3. Suggestion for Implementation - Resource Grabber

  37. 'Last session' in MX5 was great. 'Last session' in MX6 is presented as open browser pages I often have more than 10 links in 'Last session' on MX5, not very use having that many open windows, as in MX6. Think I'll stick with MX5

  38. Please make it possible to display icons in quick launch in the form of screenshots of sites, as in version MX5. And also make it possible to change the quick launch grid. So that it could be done on 6 columns, and 8, or 10 for example. Thank!

  39. HOW TO COMPLETELY REMOVE VBOX AND BSV MODULE? Deleting bsv.7z, vbox.7z, welcome.7z, files and folder "block" from webui folder does not help. It was promised that users could remove the blockchain module they did not need. Was that a lie?

  41. so a few questions 1 - the themes/skins are just different colours - good for those who are happy with that but what about full UI changes as was possible in all earlier version 2 - when are we going to see things that are standard in all other browsers - bookmarks sidebar - status bar to name just 2 3 - when will the core be updated - its months behind current releases - i thought one of the main reasons for 6 was to be able to be up to date with the core at the moment [imo] 6 is way behind whats out there - it looks like something that might be ok - but when - there are

  43. After nearly a week, the MX6 alpha 2 test was successfully completed. We have received many praises and constructive suggestions for browser performance and basic functions from hundreds of Maxthon supporters worldwide. On behalf of Maxthon USA Inc., we would like to express our sincere gratitude for your active participation and enthusiastic feedback. Through user discussions in the test group, we can see that many users expressed their support and expectations for MX6 alpha 2. Better performance, faster response Compared with the MX5 browser, MX6 alpha 2 is much faster. Especi

  44. 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 😞

  45. this post add on MX6 please The settings section should be very advanced, for example advanced settings in google chrome I want Turkish language support Quality plugins The core should be developed (In the private messages section on Twitch etc. it is very problem) There are too many problems in MX5 right now

  50. Did you miss me? Because I'm here and I will grumble... Again! What happened to your Extensions Center? After years of controversy, we finally realized that users really need extensions. But if you browsers does not have extensions what you users need, it does not mean you can just forget about the extensions that already exist. Does not matter what do we think ab out the browser, does not matter what the developers want to do with the browser, there are too many users who love it and will use even if Maxthon close the project. And this people probably would like to use the extensions.
