  1. Hi Everyone,

    We always believe Maxthon is made by all users, not just developers and we always believe we shall send thanks to the people who contribute to the community.

    Now, we have introduced a new forum feature to make a step forward in this direction.

    If you look at the post, you will find there is a new feature, "Give tips", on every post.

    When you click 'Give', you will have the chance to send a little reward to the owner of the post to show thanks to him/her.

    You can use Maxthon Vbox or other wallet to pay the tips.

    How to receive tips?

    1. Open Maxthon Vbox and create an identity.
    2. Goto 'Identity' tab and 'Copy address'

      3. Go to your profile page on the forum and paste the address to "Payment Address"

    Q: What unit is the tip?

    A: The unit is VPoint which equals to 100 satoshi. 1 satoshi=0.00000001 BSV. The default value is 2, so it doesn't cost much, but a good way to show the thanks. Feel free to increase the amount 😉

     

    The feature is pretty new, feel free to submit any problems you found.

     

    Cheers ~~

    Jeff

  2. Hi,

    This forum is dedicated to Skin and Extensions of latest Maxthon browser. 

    Maxthon uses the same Skin and Extension format of Google Chrome. Feel free to share any good Skin or Extension that you love.

    If you are a skin or extension author, feel free to share your work to our community.

     

    Cheers~~

  3. 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.

    Sorry to say this @MaxthonJeff, but from what you've said in the video, it seems you are not trying to develop the best browser for people anymore, you are simply making this a playground for crypto schemes. I've spend 30522 hours using Maxthon (that's almost 3.5years of real time) over the past few years. Started using it since the era of MyIE2 actually. But in the past years the development cycle of MX has slowed down to almost a full stop. Simple bugs persist tens of version and most requested features and functionalities are ignored. There is no innovation, no interest in upping the security, compatibility or speed of the browser anymore and now, by introducing even more unneeded gadgets,tools, wallets and protocols to MX6 coupled with using "heavily customized core" you are again sinking into the depths of unamageable dependencies, that will only slow down the browser and annoy the users.

    Don't get me wrong, I LOVE maxthon. As i've said above, i've been loyal to maxthon for well over a decade now. But you are simply ignoring what people want from you and that is costing you your users that are migrating over to Vivaldi, Brave and other similar browsers that actually care about opinions of their users and let them shape the browsers.

    You are a visionary, nobody can take that from you. But perhaps you should think about your users in the first place and create a product they want to use. And then, only then, make the bloatware something that can be added by plugins and not as a main feature.

    That's my five cents to the topic.

    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.

    Can someone explain how having blockchain tech in a browser makes it more secure?

    I (think) I understand how it works in relation to a transaction process, but what/how does it offer security in a browser context?

    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.

    And what about the mobile version of Maxton? Will there be new features for it? It would be good to have a sniffer, page translation and better night mode.

    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.

    i wonder if the google's rules within chrome store will affect Maxthon features or addons developing.

    that said i will not use bitcoin related addins, i wish we could have an innovative UI if not a renderering engine.

    now whe had to choose between blink or blink and chrome store or chrome store ( gecko and Mozilla :-- )

    Chrome store rule will not affect Maxthon features. We are considering to provide an additional store if we have resources to manage it.

    This will be optional?

    Will there be any way for any user to opt out of the whole bigcoinc, biddata, bigXXX related theme that has the browser built in?

    We will be able to "be free" to choose if we want such options BIGxxx?

    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.

  8. 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

  9. Dear Maxthon community members,

    Besides the high interests in the Browser area, I also keep eye closely to any new technology that could impact the world. Now I am glad to let you know that, I will start a project based on blockchain technology, which is introduced by BitCoin. Although it's a separate project, it will introduce some nice thing to Maxthon. With this project (lives.one), there will be a token created (LivesToken). Maxthon will use this token in some ways, like, reward users activeties, reward active community members who contribute a lot. The best thing is, with more and more users who use the token, its price will increase. 

    Besides, the project is in pre-sale stage and have discounted price for participants.

    It has been long that I wanted to create something to give rewards our community. I believe LivesToken could serve that purpose.

    If you are also interested in blockchain technology or want to participate in LivesToken project, you can join our telegram group  https://t.me/joinchat/E-ue2w1NCPOj5y9GA3LUPw .

    btw: Maxthon browser and LivesToken are two different technology and run by different teams. They will be developed separately.

    Thanks

  10. 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
