  1. @PHYR @MaxthonJeff thanks for the clarification. I still think there is much to think about when it comes to including it in the base browser, but I'll try tokeep calm and wait to see what the alpha / beta version will bring us. @MaxthonJeff feel free to drop me a DM with pre-release once it's avaliable and i'll gladly test it and report back to the forums about what I honestly think about all of it.
  2. @DARKSTORM I have actually studied software development. I own a development company and I am also a developer myself. I've buit multiple products that were just to please me. I've even took a shot at my own browser But all those were private, because if it's just about my pleasure, then it's just for me. But once you make your product public and you want it to be widespread, because it generates you revenue, you kinda sorta have to listen to your users. If you force your users into something a majority of the users don't care about, or don't even want, you are going to have hard time sustaning your profits and your community will loose faith in you and your product. And if you look here thoughout the forums, you will find that is exactly what is happening here. Not enough of community communication and ignoring community requests is what angers the people that use maxthon. It angers me and i'm pretty sure it angers you as well. Based on what you've written you are maxthon loyalist as well. What would you rather have ? More half finished, half working blokchain products built into the browser, or reliable crashless browser that cares about security, privacy and speed? For me that is not even a question. I sure want maxthon to be successfull, widespread and to bring innovation. But perhaps to the fields where it matters. And to answer your question. I may have a lot less topics / comments here on the forums, but i am present here almost every day. I read topics but i don't really feel the need to respond most of the times. But one of things that define me, is that I always speak my mind. And this is it. I feel that perhaps by letting Jeff know how community feels about this may knock some sense in him. And guts? What guts. There is nothing to be afraid of here. There are only few possible outcomes and none of it is anything to do with guts. Either Jeff speaks with some people and realizes he is wrong, or he books me a flight to china to speak with him personally about my concerns, or he ignores me, or I get my account banned. Neither of those will harm me in any way. PS: I've went though my emails and found out i've registered my MX account back in 2009. That was the era of Maxthon 2.0. But i've been using it even sooner, back when it was called MyIE2, as far as i can recall, it was somewhere around 2005 - 2007 when I started using it. Since then i've used it for around 12hrs a day almost every day. I use only two browsers. Mathon for everyday browsing and main part of web development and Vivaldi for company related stuff, because Maxthon doesn't play nicely with our inner networking SSO/LDAP related stuff. PPS: In your feature suggestion post here in this topic you've written about using Snap (Frequently used. Useful at all times). Even though Snap is one of the most polished features of Maxthon, I have found a replacement that has few usefull quirks. It's called ShareX and it can do all the same as MX Snap, but on top of that it can autoupload to FTP or image sharing sites. And you can bind it to multiple different hotkeys / keybinds to do different things. You can set which keybinds will to what quality or what type of snap and so on...
  3. "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.
  4. 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.

  6. anagrammar replied at 2015-1-6 05:40 I'm not suggesting you shouldn't do that if you wanna, but all of those features exist in Stylish. Well As for a developer, it's challenge for me and to be honest, Stylish is not really that user friendly. Personally, i've installed it, disliked every part of it, and uninstalled it before you could say "I'm gonna develop new extension, that fits my needs"
  7. I started to develop custom CSS modification extension. It's main features: 1. It's in english! 2. Per domain css with option for wildcards, exact domain or domain arrays
  8. Dermot replied at 2015-1-3 16:16 I think the fact the OP used Ad hunter to modify CSS instead of it's intended purpose was just as m ... Perhaps it was a misuse, to use it to modify CSS too, but it still doesnt make adhunter bad. I never experienced problems that you describe. For youtube adverts I use YoutubeCenter.
  9. PerritoCaliente replied at 2015-1-3 04:45 No adhunter,better is Adblock. Pls Dont support Adhunter.! Care to explain why? Saing no without proper explanation is pointless.
  10. @tony why cannot you see them going back? If community decides that adhunter was better solution, I think, we can see it happen.
  11. So I think, all of us would be more happy, if adhunter was modified instead of being replaced with adblock plus Thank you for your feedback
  12. I just updated to the newest version and I came to conclusion, that the new AdBlock Plus is not as good as maxthon adhunter in terms of css modification. I used adhunter not only to block ads, but also to modify css of some sites to make them look better and easier to read and navigate on. But with the new Adblock plus, there is no way to modify CSS, only to hide specified elements. This is not the best solution unfortunately. If this is only my problem, I will delete my post and develop plugin to replace this feature
