  1. Whoa. There are a lot of words there and it gives a prick to the heart (not sure if used the right term). I'm not really good with these kind of conversation but I'll still voice my mind.

    What MaxthonJeff said that  "I created maxthon to please myself in the first place" is probably a typical reply among developers. I'm not sure if you, sajphon, is a developer yourself but I've studied programming and have already tried building projects. While studying, my instructor gives me some tasks to build then I defy him by implementing features that I myself think could make the output better and that impresses him. On another case, I checked some others projects then thought to myself  "It could've been better" then tell them ways to improve their work but it was just a form of self-satisfaction. I bet they're thinking "easier said than done, I have to make a lot of adjustments to implement that".

    Basically speaking, MaxthonJeff built Maxthon because he isn't satisfied with other browsers. Probably saying "I could do better" then he built and released it wherein other people finds convenience with what he built. He didn't build it just to please others. As for me, I wouldn't build something I don't want to just to please others. How can you be yourself if you build something just for others and not for yourself?

    And @sajphon30522 hours usage, Member since January 12, 2013 (recorded in community). Me:  8575 hours usage, Member since January 21, 2014 (recorded in account).
    I'm 1 year later and 21947 hours shorter than you. How come you have smaller contributions but bigger guts to cause a commotion here?


  2. As for me, I still want to retain the Features:

    • Sidebar
    • Status Bar (Especially System Info for Up & Down Speeds)
    • Night Mode (Possibly Improve)
    • Developer Tools
    • Resource Sniffer (Especially! Barely used but helps BIG time)
    • Snap (Frequently used. Useful at all times). Lastly...
    • Gmail Notifier Extension (Not sure if Chrome has a similar/better alternative but this is very useful to me)

    I'd probably still stick to Maxthon as my all around browser no matter the changes. It carries most of my browsing data and I feel more secured with Passkeeper than Chrome's.

    One concern would be LivesOne & LivesToken. As Mx6 will support BSV, LivesOne will probably be left out. Hope the feature is still the same, Reward for Browsing, but please, no eating away CPU usage. Browsers already consume a large amount of RAM. Don't make it harder.

  3. Still the same. Did you try checking the addon in the Extension Center and the one I uploaded?snap_screen_20190711084919.png

    There's 1 line missing on the one I uploaded. 
    Left: Extension Center
    Right: Uploaded

  4. Is anyone here using Gmail Notifier? Mine just broke.
    I had my laptop fully resetted and installed Mx5 clean. I signed in my account then it starts to sync with my account. After syncing, I noticed a blank icon which is Gmail Notifier that is now broken. Had tried reinstalling the extension a number of times but still the same. I already signed in my Gmail before the tests but still the same.
    I'm using Mx5.2.7.5000.
    Here's the link for Gmail Notifier

    I thought that they used basically the same ABP core, but it seems that may not be the case. Or at least there's something going on that is causing this issue.

    If you're talking about the ABP between Maxthon and Firefox, The interface is completely different.


  6. I was just using ABP on Firefox and just noticed a slightly big difference with Maxthon's ABP.
    I was browsing video streaming sites and noticed a mirror that doesn't play unless you turn off the adblock (both Firefox and Maxthon). I had the mirrors link whitelisted with wildcards (*.domain.*), It worked on firefox's but wildcards aren't allowed on Maxthon's whitelist. The video player is embedded so it can easily be whitelisted with wildcards but it's hard on Maxthon(can't do it).
    Additionally, you can block elements easily on firefox while you need to type it manually on Maxthon.
    The only advantage I see on Maxthon's ABP is the custom filter which is not on Firefox's, aside from that, those in firefox are probably better.
