Release Note6

Everything posted by Tony

  1. when was MX5 final or official - its still beta - ok every so often it becomes a release but then it gets updated or a few bugs fixed and its back to beta MX6 will be no different and as to it being 'ready' it will never be finished - no software ever is - it might get to a point where its usable but that wont be for a long time imo - theres far too much missing and asked for - all we get is its been added to the list for the devs - if that follows the MX5 list then we will wait forever - just look at the stuff that was asked for on 5 that never got done so use 6 or not or find something thats more complete
  2. there is another discussion on Telegram - vast number of 300+ members - it was possible for people like me to read the comments the word is WAS - i went to look this morning and its now locked and ii have to post a capcha number to look - so what have you got to hide - the fact that there is nobody there - i am surprised you state the actual number of members - why not say its 670million as you say thats the user base - or is it that the dont want the world and its wife to read the stuff posted - mostly rubbish with little content
  3. i would guess its either this will be in future versions or i have reported this to the dev team imo this project is going nowhere for 'normal' users - its a vanity project for Geoff - the few users that are left using Maxthon will continue to be disappointed
  4. an interesting statement how do you/we know that - its never been stated how many devs there are - who are you comparing that to - microsoft or vivaldi/brave
  5. its available here to some and on telegraph to anybody - no need to join just view - as to rolling it out its an apha version - a long way from finished or usable - i log on here in hope but i think thats fading fast - Vivaldi is way ahead of 6 - i cannot see that changing
  6. 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
  7. 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 provide better services and make the world a better place. have you really thought about that with the world as it is today - Maxthon is seen as a Chinese Browser - thats beyond comment
  8. you repeatedly mention MX beta so why are we on 1400 alpha
  9. agreed - i am/was confused by the fact there is a setting line but greyed out - its so long since i set it up i cannot remember if it ever was anything other than greyed out the name is generated by Maxthon and as you say can be modified - again i was thinking that the default could be altered - maybe not
  10. setting up MX5 on a computer for a friend and trying to remember how to set up snap - want to save grabs to a specific dir but settings is greyed out - also want to change the saved name - again i cannot remember if thats possible so anybody with a better memory than me how do i turn on settings
  11. would you care to say which year
  12. give up - this is alpha - to be followed by beta - to be followed by years of bug fixed versions - to be followed by MX7
  13. 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 mature products that blow it away - it needs to be complete now or in the very near future to gain a foothold - its in alpha stage - updates are slow - there seems to be no structure to testing and no official testers - well not here - bugs are reported to the devs in a hap hazard fashion - this place has very little input - the telegraph site seems no more than a talk shop as a way to report problems - inform users and generally keep people informed you should look how its done elsewhere - the Vivaldi forum being a case in point we have one person posting from Maxthon with little info and no discussion - you sacked the 3 admins who had kept this place alive and demoted all those below them - an odd decision at best
  14. i agree and disagree - have not looked at the new build but on your point that there are better extensions than snap in the chrome store i beg to differ on what i have looked at - that said i have not tried all thats listed so would be interested to look at what you say is better - please list them snap in m6 fills the requirement for many but it should be a separate extension - whether others are better or worse is not really the issue - if a user wants to use something else then they should be able to remove the m6 version otherwise it just bloats the install
  15. so anyone can become a tester now it seems - post here and you are added to the group - so why not make it open to all - you will have no control over it soon as the test versions are posted anywhere and everywhere the whole project seems like a waste of time
  16. 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

    Forum Update

    its been suggested before - they seem incapable of doing it - there have been suggestions and links posted - the [now sacked] admins even offered to pay for a commercial theme but like most everything on here it fell on deaf ears
  18. but you are still a mod - its just the admins he has sacked - seems odd as they did all the work over the years - not that theres much to do these days - Maxthon say they have 700 million users - you can pretty much count the users here on two hands - wonder where the other 699.999.990 are
  19. i have seen and read that - let me be as simple as i can be - i do not understand bitcoin - blockchain and all that it links to - i have more chance of understanding Ody in her own language or Jeff in his than this technology - hence my question
  20. interesting can someone explain that in simple english to someone who has no interest in bitcoin or blockchain or whatever else is implied - Jeff talks about that part being a module that can be removed - if so what will that mean to the browser
  21. released on 25th Oct - thats 5 weeks ago - has nothing been fixed in that time thats worth sharing - a core thats over a year old - bugs that are many years old it would seem the project is dead is any one from Maxthon going to comment @BugSir006
  22. all good points but no one seems to be listening - the browser is dying/dead with a conspiracy of silence from Maxthon - unless Jeff can release something that is ground breaking as MyIE was then we all need to find another browser
  23. i think 6 will happen in that a version will be released as Mx6 - whether it will be different is the key question - just as 4 was abandoned when the release number increased to 5 then 5 will suffer a similar fate imo as to what 6 will be - well thats the big question - this new core is over a year old - how can they think thats good enough and why work on something so old to release it now
  24. theres a comment somewhere that its a work in progress from Geoff i think or attributed to him - apart from that i have seen nothing but when have Maxthon ever said much about anything - it will happen or not and i guess will be as 5 a continued WIP until they think its time for 7
