Everything posted by Tony

  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. 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
  4. you repeatedly mention MX beta so why are we on 1400 alpha
  5. 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
  6. 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
  7. i have just seen this on telegraph from Jeff It’s because of the core we use it not latest. We will update when main program is stable. allowing for the fact the core on 6 is 6 months old or more and there have been many changes in updates what is the point in waiting for the program to be stable - its will only be stable with the core thats used surely when the later/latest chromium release is added its a new ball game and referring to Telegraph - whats the point of that platform when out of the 100's of millions of users Maxthon is said to have there are only 200 odd there - surely it would be better that in was all in one place here?
  8. would you care to say which year
  9. give up - this is alpha - to be followed by beta - to be followed by years of bug fixed versions - to be followed by MX7
  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. 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
  13. 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
  15. 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
  16. 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
  17. 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
  18. 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
  19. 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
  20. 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
  21. 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
  22. thanks - they really have lost the plot it would seem - how can they continue along the lines they are - 6 is coming we are told - unless they change their methodology they need not bother it seems to me
  23. is that not over a year old - not into the versions so i may be way off beam - Vivaldi is running on 78.0.3904.67 which i assume is much newer if only by the version number
