  1. I really don't understand why you don't post MX6 alpha here. This community is your core-users. There are not so many people, so it could be just open beta. P.S. New logo is really cool!
  2. ... but it can be a part of status bar.
  3. For example, synchronization can work between your devices only (today it works via Maxthon's servers): you need to connect your PC with your smartphone and then you can add a new device to this chain. If you lose all devices your data will be lost too. This is really secure, but too uncomfortable for users like me.
  4. Come on, guys! We know nothing about Maxthon and MX6, absolutely nothing! How many people do work in Maxthon and how many people do work on MX6? This is really important, because sometime it looks like there are only Chen (as developer) and Zhang (as support and promotion). Your expectations from the browser should be relevant to the number of developers. Vivaldi and Brave has several dozens of employees and as I know Vivaldi has 3 special developer who responsible for Chromium updating. Does Maxthon have special developers who will work only with Chromium updates? I don't think so. Chromium update cycle is about 40 days. Small team just can not work on the browser and at the same time try to update Chromium every 40 days.But today for Maxthon this is not so important as for Vivaldi, Brave or Opera. MX has own UI, own extensions, own sync and many other own services. Very often Chromium vulnerabilities aren't relevant to MX. So in this case (before MX6) old Chromium is not so important as own MX vulnerabilities (we already know at least two cases). So updates is important, but it's not so important as we think. If MX updates own code and ignores Chromium updates, this is not so bad as it could be. But... Why not Firefox? Firefox has ESR version - 1 update instead of 7, several months instead of 40 days. Tor, Cliqz (I think) and probably other Firefox-based browsers use ESR versions. Honestly, I hope Brave will be based of Firefox, because we already have too many Chromiums and we don't need another one. Eich chose Chromium, because he had no time to wait for Firefox Quantun. Von Tetzchner chose Chromium, because he just could not realize all there UI changes of Firefox. But Eich and Tetzchner have big enough teams. But what about MX? I think we have too many Chromium-based browsers. Now I try to support Firefox and Firefox-based browsers. I see all potential problems, but... Today Google owns Chromium and it could be a problem. I don't want to live in the world of the only browser and I'm ready to accept some changes. @MaxthonJeff, if you haven't started working on MX6 yet, think about Firefox: less opportunity to change UI, but you still can add popular MX features. Nobody will notice another Chromium, but another Firefox... maybe...
  5. Did you miss me? Because I'm here and I will grumble... Again! What happened to your Extensions Center? After years of controversy, we finally realized that users really need extensions. But if you browsers does not have extensions what you users need, it does not mean you can just forget about the extensions that already exist. Does not matter what do we think ab out the browser, does not matter what the developers want to do with the browser, there are too many users who love it and will use even if Maxthon close the project. And this people probably would like to use the extensions. Maxthon's Extensions Center does not work: Users can not write reviews. Just check any extension page - last comment was written in February 2018, almost 2 years ago. I'm almost sure this is because of Mining Go and referral links/codes. I think Maxthon tried to stop all this spam and just close all comments. But why did you do this for all gallery, not for Mining Go page only? Sometimes we need a feedback, but you took that opportunity away from us. Where are all updates? There are not so many extensions for Maxthon, but I can not believe that no one developer has made any update for his extension. Just check Recently Updated - the last update is Shopping Assistant - August 1, 2019. The developer of SaveTube and ViewTube made several updates this autumn, updates for Maxthon is already done and uploaded, but still not available for users. When Twitter released new UI, I updates my mxaddon, but it is still not available too. Even if Maxthon fix the issues, the communication on Extensions Center is broken. There is no way to inform the developer about a problem with his extension: even if you write w comment/review, he will never see that. There is no notifications for developers. And if you like an extension, you can not see other extension from the developer. We don't know you plans, but almost every you user can explain what we want to see and what you should do.If you close Extensions Center (as you did for Skins Center), it will be very bad for the browser, the community and every your user. Come on!
  6. NoAds It was unofficial port for MX, but because of old bug of Chromium it could break the browser. So the developer removed it from Extensions Center. But than someone upload it again and now you can use it. But if you will add "full lists" it may break all pages (white field instead of content).

      A.S.

      As I know today Maxthon stopped trying to add Chrome extension to MX, but they want to add this to remake of Nitro (it probably will be named LivesOne Browser).

      • Containers are developed by Mozilla and this is exclusive for Firefox.
      • AdBlock Plus and unfixed NoAds (I have to fix it manualy) are the only adblockers for MX as I know.
      • LastPass is available for MX.
      • Instead of Ghostery you can use ABP lists.
      • Try to use ViolentMonkey and scripts to download video if sniffier does not work.

      By the way, whu do you need several ad blockers? ABP and uBlock work with the same links, AdGuard uses own one, but you can add AdGuard lists to uBlock.

  7. Sum up: RoboForm was developed by SiberSystem RoboForm.mxaddon was upload to Extension Center by Roman Gravit Roman Gravit used email @siber.com, so he probably worked there (and his Facebook profile confirm this) It means that RoboForm for Maxthon is probably official add-on They both responded to messages: RoboForm - via Twitter, Roman - via Facebook. So they know about situation and probably they will connect with Maxthon Team. But maybe I could give them links to someone from Maxthon Team on Facebook or Twitter (Lizzie or Jeff)? P.S. By the way, the website works, but you shoud use siber.com/index instead of siber.com
  8. This website is dead already... But I think I found his profile. Maybe this is other man with the same name, but I'll try to talk with him. I wrote about this on Twitter, RoboForm replied. Can I give them link to someone from MX Team? Or you can try to do the same and write to RoboForm on Twitter or Facebook.
  9. I thought you could get his email from MX Passport. Nope? Not the fact that it was an official port. Usually things like this are made by fanboys from China or Russia/CIS.
  10. Did Lonely Atom delete tracking scripts or just use old safe version? Or this method of tracking just does not work on Maxthon?
  11. What's up, guys? As you probably know, my new interests are privacy and security. And today I have a bad new for you... According to Robert Heaton's note, popular extension Stylish steals all your internet history: I have a lot of questions: Is Stylish for Maxthon official? Here're not so many official extensions and ports. I know olny three: LastPass, VKOpt and AdBlock Plus. Other extensions in most cases are unofficial ports from funboys. Is Stylish too? Add-on was uploaded by one of users from China - 寂寞的原子 (Lonely Atom). He made many cool exnetsions for Maxthon. Who is he? Can we talk to him? Is spying update relevant for Maxthon? Last update of mxaddon was in January 2018. Does this mean that users of Stylish for Maxthon take risks too? Because if Lonley Atom used old version of Stylish, it may be still safe. Not a fact, but we have a chance. Are Chrome and Firefox issues relevant for Maxthon? Maxthon is closed browser. That's why many third-party developers don't want to work with Maxthon. Maybe changes happened on Chrome could not be repeated on Maxthon. Now we need someone from MX Team to check it. P. S. I've seen mention of Stylish changes thrice, so it's probably true... I'm not sure that it's relevant for Maxthon too. So don't panic! Maybe it's false alarm... But I think you should know this...
  12. If it's true, this is because of Mining Go and invitation codes. They could just disable comments for one extension.
  13. Hi. guys! I had to write about this many week ago, but... What's wrong with Extensions Center? Does it work? I tried to write reply, but I can not add new comment. Just white screen and nothing more. I hoped it's temporary, but it still does not work for me. Now I hope MX Team just preparing big update for Extensions Center and they have no reason to fix old bugs. Because we really need new Extensions Center: with notification and developer's pages. Now feedback is broken...
