  1. @IceHouse, long ago, in the days before Passkeeper, Maxthon had a parternship with RoboForm.  It could be there are some of Maxthon old-timers heavily vested in RoboForm who prefer to use it to fill in passwords.  (Also, it can fill in more complex forms, which gives it utility for things like posting to content management systems like those on blogs or news sites.)

    yes, it's correct.

    We apply another versioning system for the official release versions, and thus mobile versions are on the same track of PC versions. 


    You know — the navigation on the left side of the releases page in this forum is getting confusing, especially with the new numbering scheme.


    Maybe that could be cleaned up?

    I'd suggest breaking PC, Android, and iOS releases into separate pages/sections of the main nav.  Then each could have its own (clean, easy to navigate) sidebar of version numbers.

    Hope it's a short windows for you too.  I'm VIP3 so I'll let you know.  :titter:

    Ha, ha!

    I was too tied up on the announcement day to get an early spot, and it looks like I may be too tied up when my e-mails come to do much playing around — but I'm looking forward to the peek nonetheless!  Can't wait to hear your impressions, @No.1MaxthonFan!

    It's coming soon guys! 12 July~ :D


    Not to be a wet blanket, but let's remember the announcement says "in the order of signup from July 12th" — so it may be a few days (weeks?) before we've all installed MX5.

    (I'm in VIP2, so I'm hoping for a short window, naturally!  :wink:)

    I was wondering if there was any way I could be upgraded to VIP 3, I did try for hours to get signed up and/or I am willing to pay extra, if needed!!  I am a Maxthon #1 fan! However it goes, thanks for your help!!

    The VIP program and its levels, as well as its role in the alpha rollout, are maddeningly unclear.

    It would be nice to know:

    • what the levels are
    • whether the prices quoted are per major version, per year, or for the lifetime of use;
    • when and how users can upgrade or downgrade service to a different VIP level; 
    • if "free now" means free during the alpha phase or free until some renewal comes due; and 
    • if alpha testers are locked into the levels they came in at for the duration of the alpha test or if they'll be able to upgrade/downgrade within the alpha phase.

    I also can't help wondering:

    • Will all MX5 users be at one of the three VIP levels, or will there be non-VIP users?
    • Will there be any non-paid use of MX5?  If not, how's that going to affect the spread and promotion of MX5?
    • Is there going to be premium access to customer service and tech support for VIP users?

    I'm not opposed to paying for Maxthon.  I suggested it as a revenue-generating option years ago and am quite happy with some of the paid software I use.  But if I find myself paying (especially for the multiple accounts I use for work and family!), my expectations for performance and bug-fixing are going to go up.  ;)

    I had no problem playing the video.  But don't worry if you can't; it is mainly marketing; no real glimpses of MX5 are there that I can recognize.  But it was nice marketing consistent with the the Pre-Registration UI theme.

    Finally got a chance to watch, and it was nicely done.  Kudos, Team Maxthon!

    (I saw @Wilser ツ's note about the hack right after I posted my original comment.)
