  1. Thanks for the clarification my friends. It’s not hard to comprehend. It’s actully a common sense in building good product. Facebook started as a mischief to rate college girls. Google started as an internal tool. You can not design a product to please everyone, but always a certain kind of people, starting from yourself. Back to topic, although not seen by most people, I believe blockchain can help us build a honest world ( I really mean it in my presentation) and also help users get back their data from companies. That’s why we will build MX6. But it does not mean we will abandon users who don’t care. MX6 will be faster, compatible with MX5 and more importantly, compatible with Chrome, which means no annoying ‘please change your browser’ message, and bring massive Chrome addons to Maxthon users.
  2. Sorry buddy. But it's never the case. I created maxthon to please myself in the first place and there are other people have same taste got attracted. I won't say your understanding about blockchain is wrong, but it's certainly different than mine. I understand there are a lot of people who don't want changes and 100% accept it. But Maxthon is all about embracing new technology and new ideas. It's what drives me continue to build.
  3. Thanks Bricky, really appreciate all your contribution. Hope the best for you as well. Best Jeff Sorry if it's not so elegant as you expected. You did contribute a lot to the forum. Hope everything go well with you. Best Jeff
  4. Dear all, Thanks for all your support at Maxthon forum. It’s a long journey. Maxthon has been very popular and innovative in the earlier days and been not that sexy for several years. I want to send my thanks to all forum moderators who helped in this journey. I know some of you are not happy with Maxthon today, some are busy working with other things. It’s 100% normal. You may know that we are building Maxthon 6. The team is still trying their best to be innovitive and put 100% energy into it. We also need all forum management team have time and energy to activly helping people and manage the forum . Here I have reset all community moderators to member level, allowing all people who want to help in managing the forum to start from the very beginning. Anyone who still want to help managing the forum, being moderators of any sub forum, can PM me your request. But before the request, please consider the following requirements, 1. You shall have helped other people in the forum constantly. 2. You shall have shown positive attitude in handling different issues. 3. You shall have enough experience in browser product. 4. You shall have some basic understanding of managing communities. All the best Jeff
  5. Here is a presentation I gave at CoinGeek, talking about Maxthon 6 browser and other ideas.
  6. Sciter cannot support multiple OS, so it will not be used. Mx6 will have a skin system, more flexible than chrome, but not as flexible as sciter (which is slower).
  7. Bitcoin system is quite a big and complex topic to cover here. It’s definitely not just about transactions. In general, it is an immutable database, secured by miners around the world. Powered by bitcoin, Maxthon can provide features like save your data to bitcoin system once for all, which provide super high availability and immutability. to learn more about bitcoin, visit bitcoinsv.com mx6 will also enable app developers to easily create innovative apps powered by bitcoin.
  8. Mobile version will be updated later. But don’t expect it comes with a lot of features because we don’t want it to be bloated. It may have some addons like ability, not finalized yet. Chrome store rule will not affect Maxthon features. We are considering to provide an additional store if we have resources to manage it.
  9. Yes, you will be able to do it. All extra features are done in the form of modules, it’s possible to disable these modules if you want.
  10. Dear Maxthon users, You may already know that we are developing next major update of Maxthon browser, Maxthon 6. Here I want to share something information about it, including its value proposition, and how we will develop it. Value proposition: For existing Maxthon users, Mx6 will keep all Maxthon5 data and implement most useful features from mx5, and providing much better website compatibility, full chrome addon support, useful chrome features. For all users, Mx6 will be the world first Bitcoin powered browser, enabling users to explore and participate the next generation of internet - Metanet. More information about metanet can be found at bitcoinsv.com . Develop: The main browser features of mx6 will be developed based on a deeply customized chromium code base and existing mx5 codebase. All bitcoin related features will be developed by Maxthon team. Mx6 also has an open API to enable other developers to integrate their code. At Maxthon, we want to design the application of the future. Starting from 2003, Maxthon has been in the frontline of web innovations, today, seeing a new web is hatching from bitcoin(blockchain), we want to invite all Maxthon users to join this extraordinary movement. We can discuss all related information in this thread. We can discuss bitcoin here as well, but to learn more about bitcoin and metanet, the best place is bitcoinsv.com Jeff
  11. Hello NaxthonJeff and a happy new year.

    I have been wondering two things about *.mx5skins:

    1) Isn't it time to post the mx5skin SDK tutorial in the public Skin Forum here, so that others can make use of it?

    and

    2) How about finishing the skin maker so that mods can be made to both UIMain.dat and UIHuge.dat (and even page.dat for some skin makers)?  I'd be OK with just UIMain/UIHuge mods, since I've not ventured into page.dat mods, though I have used some in Mx4 days.

    That's it for now.  I really hope to see complete mx5skin support finished.

    Have a good day,

  12. If that’s all the users want, they will not choose Maxthon. Users want EVERYTHING. You can only speak for yourself. ;-) And actually no browser has been there. Try Googling “Chrome crash”, “Firefox crash”, “Opera crash”, “IE crash” and do it again, replacing “crash” with “slow”. I am glad you find a version that suits you well. But we will continue to improve/innovate instead of staying at a version. Developing the best product is always a way in progress.
  13. Dear Jeff, I like your Dev Team. ;)

  14. It’s a users browser, but not a ‘some users’ browser. It seems everyone think he/she can represent “The User” and the dev team shall develop the product as ‘he/she’ wishes. What if what you suggest is not majority user wants? Who to blame if there is something wrong ? I believe it’s always me and the team. Product design is not as easy as it feels. As the dev team, we have to think beyond users. The reality is not always the same as it looks like. For example, people always say how good mx2/mx3/mx4 is. But I remember how many blames appear with these product. It’s more like how my father always say how good the old time is, like 50s,60s. Remember, you always see negetive posts in forum is because people with no problem will not come to report anything. From our backend, mx5 has much less crashes rates than mx4 and probably mx3. If you think because Maxthon is not as big as Google, we cannot do SDK. You can say it again with anything we do. Just because we are not as big as Google, we have to be careful in choosing what to do. We are not that failure resistant as Google. If Google does something wrong, it can just shut it down which happens many times. But if we did something wrong, Maxthon is gone.
  15. why chrome has SDK when firefox is already on market? maxthon SDK has API to acess Maxthon only features.
