    Submission and Review Process

    • Skins or extension hosted on Maxthon should be of high quality and improve users’ web experience,so any new skins or extensions and their updates must be reviewed by Maxthonbefore they go public.
    • A skin or extension has three kinds of status: pending review, rejected and released.
    • Any skin or extension submitted or updated by developers will be added to a pendingreview queue. Maxthon will perform a review within 24 working hours.
    • If a skin or extension meets the criteria of being appropriate to distribute to users, it will be public.
    • If a skin or extension fails to meet the criteria, Maxthon will send developers a notification back with specific reasons. When developers modify the skin according to the reasons and submit, it will be in the review queue again.

    Updating Process

    • When updating a skin or an extension, developers should update it on its page, instead of submitting a new one.
    • Before new updates get approved by Maxthon, they will not affect current use of add-ons.
    • After the updates meets the criteria of reviewed, users of this add-on will beautomatically served the newest updates.
