Missing features on my Maxthon??


Recommended Posts

Hello, Guys!  My name (or online name is B7U3 C50SS)  umm so yah..  I'VE BEEN USING Maxthon a little over a year now. but when i updated to 4.9, ever since then some features dissapeared off of my GUI. I don't know why and the settings seem to be not the cause. but if look at the picture i've provided. it shows a lack of some of the most usefull pc features that i've been using  awhile now. they are just gone. or not showing rather. someone help? Maybe a fresh install is what i need?

It seems, I've solved my own issue. BUT NOT ALL OF THOSE BUTTONS HAVE RETURNED! 

THE MOST IMPORTANT BUTTONS THAT HAVEN'T RETURNED ARE 1. THE ONE THAT DISPLAYS YOUR PUCLIC IP (WHICH I DON'T REALLY CARE FOR) AND 2. THE ONETHAT SLPITS THE PAGE INTO 2 PAGES FOR MANAGABLE BROWSING.

this is not a bug... these features may come back in the future (or may not :(...)

It's because Mx is updating it's core from Chrome 30 (Webkit) to Chrome 39 (Blink). The Chrome 39 based core is a version linking Maxthon 4 and 5. Maxthon 5 will be Chrome 40+ (hopefully 50+). In order to carry out this update many popular and useful features needed to be removed (albeit temporarily) or switched off while the core is changed, stabilized and optimized. This is happening now. Some features have been reintegrated. Others are in the code but have not been switched back on for the moment. Many people have complained but few, if any of the complainants have ever bothered to read the original or subsequent Press Releases or searched for the various forum threads concerning the matter. The latest Release Candidate 4.9.2.1000 is by far the best  of the 4.9 series.

From http://forum.maxthon.com/index.php?/topic/18231-new-generation-maxthon-browser-for-windows-v49/
