Except, Maxthon 4 came out in 2012 and there still isn't a Maxthon 5. M4 is still great, but it lags behind in many areas. This is just my personal opinion, but the development resources would be better spent on a true browser, rather than a "simple fast tool for browsing".
@odyssee, it's a prophecy, mark my words! I'm kidding, of course, but I really don't see how they'll juggle Maxthon 4, MX Nitro, and a fifth version. Too much effort will be spent into Nitro, not many people will use it, because they expected a full-featured, fast browser. I hope I'm just being a doomsday sayer, but the MX team have always had 2 main versions to develop simultaneously, so I doubt there will be a full-featured MX5 any time soon.

The trouble with that is that there won't be a true Maxthon 5 (or 6) anytime soon. And upgrades for version 4 will be nothing thrilling, as with v3, because it's a secondary release (not the main focus of the developers' time).
Nitro isn't customizable
juujuuuujj posted a topic in Archived General DiscussionI've been using Maxthon since the MYIE2 days, and I'm also a beta tester for Nitro, but sadly, Nitro is the first version I'll probably skip completely (although I love Maxthon), and go for either Firefox (if I want to upgrade), or Maxthon4. Here's why: - no customizability. Speed is very important, but not at the cost of what made me use Maxthon in the first place. - no quick access page. The address bar dropdown isn't customizable - UI is OK, but worse than Maxthon4. Minimize/close buttons are too hidden. Forward button is too hidden. Slashed design and color scheme are not to everyone's taste. All f6f6f6 is better than the blue. - no ad hunter - overall, the non-customizability will alienate advanced users and turn Maxthon into a "newbie" browser. There may be a market niche for speed and simplicity, but overall, I think most users prefer a balance between speed and power.
