    these features should be corrected

    These issues have been submitted to the dev team as bugs.


  3. 封面.png

    Last week, we announced that MX6 is the first Bitcoin-powered browser. Many users wonder why choose BSV as the underlying blockchain. Today we will talk about the thinking behind this.

    Bitcoin was invented in 2008 by Satoshi Nakamoto and started in January 2009. Its source code was released as open-source software. In June 2017, developers led by hardware manufacturer Bitmain made the first hard fork to increase the block size limit to eight megabbytes. As a result, the bitcoin ledger split in two, and the new one is named Bitcoin Cash. On November 15th, 2018, Bitcoin Cash got another fork, result in two independent blockchains. The one is Bitcoin ABC (short for Adjustable Blocksize Cap), it would maintain the block size at 32MB. The other is Bitcoin SV (short for "Bitcoin Satoshi Vision), it would increase the block size limit to 128MB.

    BSV claims that it would restore Satoshi Nakamoto's original vision. Maxthon believes in the original power of Bitcoin.

    • BSV will help in building an honest society

    BSV leader, Dr. Craig S. Wright, believes that Bitcoin was never intended to allow anonymous cryptocurrency transactions. It was designed to protect privacy. Privacy and anonymity are two totally different concepts. Privacy means that your identity will not be exposed, but an audit trail can be conducted if someone wants or needs to investigate misconduct. Bitcoin is a transparent system that can track the flow of the coin. In BSV chain, your privacy will be protected better. But if an economic system operates in an anonymous form, corruption and crime will surely grow.

    We agree with this concept, and we will work with the community to build an honest and reliable society. 

    • BSV is unlimited scaling and keeps transaction fees tinyimage.png

    (The technological metrics of the three Bitcoin blockchains)

    The BTC developer group kept blocks on BTC restricted to a tiny 1MB size. 1MB blocks only allow an average of 3 transactions per second. With tiny 1MB blocks, the BTC network often runs into congestion. This led BTC transaction fees to skyrocket. Compared with BTC, BSV now completely removes any default cap on the block size, and BSV team claims BSV now rivals VISA for transactions per second, and offers BSV miners "better returns" than BTC.

    Uncapped scaling is critical to attracting enterprises. Enterprises can develop applications on a blockchain that is scalable to support their high volume needs.

    • BSV is the Bitcoin you can earn and use

    Unless you are a miner earning newly mined coins, BTC is a digital currency that you must buy from an exchange; and then most buyers just hold, hoping for investment gain.

    BSV ushers in a new paradigm. BSV is electronic cash that everyone can easily earn and use. Innovative entrepreneurs are creating new applications which allow users to earn small amounts BSV through micropayments, and then actually use the digital currency.

    (Excerpt from BSV Ecosystem)

    There are more than 300 projects on the BSV chain, such as UptimeSV, TonicPow, Twetch, FiveBucks and services like them, more “BSV earning” applications are coming. BSV projects also encompass diverse industry sectors, involving entertainment, social media, online games, supply chain, digital advertising, data marketplaces, distributed network intelligence, Internet of Things, banking and, of course, payments.

    To summarize, BSV builds a blockchain designed for business: to meet real enterprise needs, to be used by real people, and to comply with real laws.  It means BSV allows for massive scaling, and adds a professionalized approach to security. Working on BSV, we believe Maxthon will provide better services and make the world a better place.

    Hi, it synced after some time (I would say many hours). Now it shows bookmarks however I can't find how to set favorites folder to show on favorites bar.

    Hi projektilski, go to Bookmark manager, drag the folder which you need to display to the folder "Desktop Bookmarks," please.

    But in my case this did not happen. I logged in with Maxthon 6 but nothing synced. Maxthon 5 is still installed on the same computer.

    Could you let me know the version number of your Maxthon 6 and the UID of your browser account? To check the UID, you can access my.maxthon.com.

    Try to open the Maxnote to check the sync status, please.

    Since we announced that Maxthon 6 will support blockchain applications, many users want to know how Maxthon 6 will do it. After communicating with the MX6 development team, we decide to invite users to experience these features in MX6 Beta test. Please join the test and feel the birth of new internet.

    When it comes to blockchain, many people assume that blockchain and cryptocurrency are the same. Blockchain is one of the underlying technologies of cryptocurrency. They are closely related, but they are not the same thing.

    Blockchain is a new technology, sometimes referred to as Distributed Ledger Technology. It is "an open, distributed ledger that can record transactions between two parties efficiently and in a verifiable and permanent way". The primary usage of blockchain today is in the financial sector and it also can be integrated into multiple areas to change the way we live.

    With great features like reliability, transparency, traceability and immutability, blockchain shifts trust in people and institutions to trust in technology. MX6 will be the first browser that supports blockchain identification, information storage and retrieval.

    • MX6 will provide a blockchain identity manager

    MX6 will provide a blockchain identity management tool. The blockchain uses public-key cryptography technology to identify different parties. MX6 has used and extended this technology for users to create private identities on internet. When surfing the web, users could enjoy quick payment by fast identity verification and authentication. With the data encryption and decryption, identity manager can validate the ownership of certain data without exposing any user's personal information.

    By embracing it as an integrated part of the browser, MX6 will provide a powerful and yet private identity validation system, making a safer and convenient new internet.

    • MX6 will support new blockchain domain system

    MX6 will support a blockchain domain system, which has made blockchain easier to use, by hiding the complexity of blockchain behind domain names. It can be used as an updatable datastore for users and for app developers. For example, register “MyFirstID.test” as your blockchain domain and create "wallet@MyFirstID.test" as your Bitcoin wallet address. Then you will use this address to replace hard-to-remember crypto-address.

    In this domain system, users can create an unlimited amount of subdomains. With an unlimited amount of subdomains, people can save an unlimited amount of blockchain data, and more importantly, update these data on the fly. All the complexity of updating immutable blockchain is hidden below the domain layer. 

    • MX6 is first Bitcoin-powered browser by the BSV blockchain

    Why does MX6 choose BSV? First, with the Genesis update of BSV, it's technologically matured to develop real applications; Second, BSV's transaction fee is lower and predictable; and the most important reason is that BSV is the regulation-friendly Bitcoin. In BSV, your privacy will be protected better, but privacy does not mean anonymity. This means that your identity will not be exposed, but an audit trail can be conducted if someone wants or needs to investigate misconduct. Blockchain is a nascent technology and it should improve our lives rather than disrupt existing social order.

    MX6 will provide open APIs that allow developers and businesses to easily integrate their blockchain applications to the Maxthon browser.

    • Summary

    MX6 will have easy wallet integration to support all BSV applications. It also provides a new identify system powered by cryptography. With the development of Maxthon, more and more blockchain empowered innovative features will be added.

    MX6 Beta version contains basic blockchain functions. If you are interested in MX6, please join the test group at https://t.me/nbdomain. Your advice and suggestions are always welcome!

    Hi pantantrollo, this function will be added to the future version.


  9. Today, we will talk about the Settings of Maxthon 6. Compared with Maxthon 5, Maxthon 6 provides more personalized settings. Let's take a look at it.

    1.png

    • Startup page settings

    2.png

    You can open a page or pages when you launch MX6 on your computer. It can be a specific page, like New tab, About:blank, Last Session, or it can be a set of pages.

    • Quick save images

    3.png

    In "Settings>General>Quick save images",  tick "Quick Save images by clicking while holding the Ctrl key" and the images can be saved to the default folder.

    • Tab settings

    4.png

    In "Settings>Tab" page, you can do more personalized settings for a tab. You can decide how to open or close a tab and select the position when you create new tab or switch to which tab after closing a tab. MX6 does its best to meet the needs of users in different scenarios and habits.

    • Personalized appearance settings

    5.png

    In "Settings>Appearance>Theme", you can personalize your MX6 by changing themes. Besides "Classic Dark Blue" and "Classic Light Blue", you can also find more browser themes in the Theme Store. In the "Interface", you can choose to show some button in address bar or not. Besides that, MX6 provides other customization of appearance, such as customizing fonts and font size.

    6.png

    Moreover, MX6 inherits the "Customize UI" menu, so that you can set the interface more easily and quickly.

    7.png

    • Mouse Gesture

    8.png

    MX6 inherits MX5's built-in mouse gestures feature. You can click "More mouse gestures" to get more action selections.

    • Advanced settings

    9.png

    In "Settings>Advanced" page, there are the settings about Privacy and security, Accessibility, System, Cache path and Reset settings. With functions optimized, MX6 will open more underlying settings. MX6 can not only become a good browser for ordinary users, but also it can be the best choice for enthusiasts.

    • Summary

    The Settings of MX6 is still improving. In the Beta version, we will create more convenient features. Your advices and suggestions are always welcome!
