  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 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 . 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 Jeff
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. why chrome has SDK when firefox is already on market? maxthon SDK has API to acess Maxthon only features.
  14. The priority of Maxthon is always perfmance/bug fix. It already has a lot of build-in features.Upgrading current features follows. Brand new feature will be carefully selected. Unless we feel the feature will benefit most users, not just a small group, we will not add it. The best place of these features are addons. We may put more time upgrading addon SDK than building every feature by ourselves, which may be an endless task (just check how many cool ideas in firefox/chrome addons). Thanks Jeff
  15. The new one will take a different path than Maxthon. It’s designed for people who have used to Chrome, not mean to replace Maxthon. And it will be more focus on blockchain related features . Maxthon will continue act as the All in One package, feature rich browser. The new one will not be Maxthon branded. It will be released under a non-profit foundation. I am not sure what do you mean “three separate lists”. I suppose after CEF upgrade, the unsupported site will not support Maxthon.
  16. Thanks all for the concern. I admit there is some disconnect between dev team and the forum users. Let me brief what we did for the past several month. We are working on adding Chrome addon support. And it turns out it will be much easier to have it in a seperate product, like Nitro, than in Maxthon. And we also did some research with blockchain technology. We decide to build a separate product, continuing Nitro product line (may with a different name). The product will support Chrome addons from the beginning, adding blockchain technology, being cryptocurrency friendly. We have a lot of new ideas about how to use browser to build a decentrolized internet. We will continue to improve Maxthon as well. Some improvements are being cooked, like Translation, Snipper and Quick Access. We also upgraded the browser core to bing up-to-date engine, improved performance. There are a lot to expect. Thank you again Jeff
  17. The problem is we don't have valid certificate for these sites.Do you know how to get them? Maybe you could record a video to show the problem ?
  18. Who's calling me ? I hear your voice in my dream
  19. Hey, do you have any website that "We" could use to reproduce the problem? The sites in above posts just don't display any certificate dialog on any browser. Maybe they require special login information.
  20. Please go through SDK first and if you have questions, feel free to post them here.
  21. Can you use mx5(portable version) and import your mx4 magic fill data ? mx5 could have fixed a lot of bugs in mx4.
  22. The quickest way to send an webpage to mobile via mx5 is through QRCode. Then you can use mx5 android/iOS to scan the code and get the page.
  23. My friends, the purpose of alpha test is to find problems and fix them before sending to more people. Thanks to early participants, we already located some bugs and are fixing them. You can expect us start sending more links in next 2 days. thanks jeff
  24. yes. In mx5 we will try to improve the UI and have consistancy among all platforms.
