Hi @BugSir009, thank you for the 184.108.40.20600 download link. The Google Play Store still does not offer this version for update in my region (Czechia, Europe). Overall it's a very good update and loading of the webpages appears subjectively faster to me. Kudos! 👍 Here're my quick comments on potential areas of further improvement: Search engine list does not offer my primary Google search engine among the choices. Please have it added. Adblock Plus setting under Privacy & Security section is inactive, although the ad blocker appears to be working by default. The app reacts with roughly 0.5sec delay when tapping on the icon with number of open pages (the icon on the bottom bar to the right of the "M" icon) when Home page is active and the animation of the window being minimised is jerky for some reason. When any other open page but the Home page is active, the problem does not manifest itself and the reaction is instantaneous. Tested on Samsung S21 @ Android 13. As mentioned several times before, I would very much appreciate if you allowed users to remove the currently mandatory section with links to eBay, Instagram, Vbox, Amazon, etc. Many users, me included, have no use for any of these links inside of the browser. Adding a new site link via Add custom site leads to messing up the list of sites (only first row of custom site icons is displayed, the rest is not) and browser restart is needed in order to display the previously defined and also the newly added sites. Similar to the above, when using the Home page Search bar, My Sites list gets reduced to the first row of icons temporarily. Switching the Night Mode on/off without the Sun/Moon animation (and resulting delay) would seem more mature to me. Please consider removing the animation.
Hello @BugSir006, neither Google Play store currently offers any update nor does my existing 220.127.116.110 Android app provides update via "Check for updates" link. Can you please double check your update distribution channels and advise how to update to 18.104.22.16800?
How to add the custom search engine
phoenix-76 replied to BugSir006's topic in Maxthon NewsHello @BugSir006, just a comment on the user experience of managing the search engines. For some time now I'm very cautious around the "Restore" link in the top right corner of the search engine list. I'm really not going to test its functionality now since in the past it immediately and without asking erased all my manually predefined engines (tens of them) 😐 Unless this has already been dealt with, could you please consider either removing the "Restore" link altogether (users would still be able to remove the unwanted engines one by one) or add some kind of warning notification when clicking on the Restore link, something like "Do you really want to remove all your custom search engine definitions? Yes/No"? Thanks in advance for looking into this.
Mx6 questions and discussions
phoenix-76 replied to MaxthonJeff's topic in Maxthon Support & DiscussionPlease add a true Google search engine option into Android MX6 app. The Maxask substitute is way too inferior and returns incomplete or irrelevant search results. Thanks in advance to have this fixed in a timely manner!
