Nitro as a special mode in MX4?


Recommended Posts

I was struck by a thought... Nitro is generally a feature-less MX4, right? Which supposedly may provide better speeds in rendering. But why not add it as a special mode in MX4? Disabling features globally and then checking if they are enabled will not waste too much CPU cycles to affect speed, no? Why create a separate browser? Does it have a different engine or something?

Hi there.

Nitro is generally a feature-less MX4, right?

No, it's standalone, from scratch-builded "new" browser.

Nitro is more a like Chromium based browsers clone- like new Opera,Coolnovo and so one.

Maxthon for Windows is built on a modified,own version of Webkit / Blink.

As you can see it is unlikely to mix these 2engines in one browser.

From the very beginning it was announced as a Nitro will be fast browser, without unnecessary elements such as extensions, stripped down from more advanced options. Simple fast tool for browsing the web, checking email,chat with your friends etc.

Being a main browser that is not the task of Nitro if you want the same things as other browsers have.

If you have more questions or doubts- just ask.

There is a feature-less browsing mode already implemented in Maxthon since version 3. Open a tab that you want as a home page, right click that tab, select "Save as Quick App...", check "Send to destop" and there you have it. The tabs open in new windows, there are no extensions or ANY settings there, but it's also very fast
