MX6 Explanation: Settings

Recommended Posts

Today, we will talk about the Settings of Maxthon 6. Compared with Maxthon 5, Maxthon 6 provides more personalized settings. Let's take a look at it.

  • Startup page settings

2.png

You can open a page or pages when you launch MX6 on your computer. It can be a specific page, like New tab, About:blank, Last Session, or it can be a set of pages.

  • Quick save images

3.png

In "Settings>General>Quick save images",  tick "Quick Save images by clicking while holding the Ctrl key" and the images can be saved to the default folder.

  • Tab settings

4.png

In "Settings>Tab" page, you can do more personalized settings for a tab. You can decide how to open or close a tab and select the position when you create new tab or switch to which tab after closing a tab. MX6 does its best to meet the needs of users in different scenarios and habits.

  • Personalized appearance settings

In "Settings>Appearance>Theme", you can personalize your MX6 by changing themes. Besides "Classic Dark Blue" and "Classic Light Blue", you can also find more browser themes in the Theme Store. In the "Interface", you can choose to show some button in address bar or not. Besides that, MX6 provides other customization of appearance, such as customizing fonts and font size.

Moreover, MX6 inherits the "Customize UI" menu, so that you can set the interface more easily and quickly.

  • Mouse Gesture

8.png

MX6 inherits MX5's built-in mouse gestures feature. You can click "More mouse gestures" to get more action selections.

  • Advanced settings

9.png

In "Settings>Advanced" page, there are the settings about Privacy and security, Accessibility, System, Cache path and Reset settings. With functions optimized, MX6 will open more underlying settings. MX6 can not only become a good browser for ordinary users, but also it can be the best choice for enthusiasts.

  • Summary

The Settings of MX6 is still improving. In the Beta version, we will create more convenient features. Your advices and suggestions are always welcome!

If you read carefully all the threads you'll find lots of suggestions and stuff to build a revamped browser. Opera and Edge still got built-in features for suggestions and bug reports, even with screen captures.

for the moment MX6 is still in nurture for me, i don't worry, i'm waiting for things to come and i got time

It could be, but at least integrate the options and tools that were already in MX5, if we do not have the same (or less) than in other browsers

My usage experience is still better on MX5 than MX6/chrome

URL aliases, please! They're the real constant time-saver that keeps me using Maxthon over other browsers.

And of these requests, is something going to be raised?

Because part of my data (user / pass) and bookmarks in the QA are trapped there

Hi all.Unfortunately I had left using Maxthon.Now that Maxthon 6 will be out,I feel I can return to Maxthon.Thanks a lot Maxthon developers!Please consider the following ideas:

I hate videos being auto buffered.even I do not click play button,it is being buffered in the background.(not auto play, auto buffer)

Also please let us change user agent as in Maxthon 5. Enable this setting.

Please make a blank page for new tab (with no quick access)

This setting is empty: site settings for example: mx://settings/content/siteDetails?site=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.maxthon.com

Make a setting that we can turn "check Maxthon is default browser" off.

Please share a page that we can follow new versions of Maxthon 6 besides telegram. (any news on beta?)

Sorry if this is not the right place to share my ideas.

1) When I use the drag and drop for a new tab, it loses focus unlike in the older Maxthon 5 version.

2) No status bar.

3) Ctrl + click does not work on Instagram and other websites to save images.

Could you describe the issue in detail or send a short video to me? I tried to test but haven't reproduced.

When I drag a link to open a new tab, the new tab takes focus and it takes me away from the current tab. In Maxthon 5 I can drag links and open several tabs, but the one I am currently on does not lose focus. The behavior is normal when I use the middle mouse button, but I lose the current tab focus when dragging to open a new link.

You can uncheck "open drag text in new tab."😊

Story is simple:

- I'm going to site and authorizing.

- Then launching game.

- At 5% progress this message appears.

Then (even after completed loading) nothing's happen

In MX5 while 95% progress appears  "insufficient memory" message and loading interrupts.

games.affect3dstore.com

but you can try only DEMO. the rest needs authorization.

the matter of WebGL problem (imho) is optimal RAM-limit used by MX6 (if it's sets).

very strange... the same games works perfect on android...

Thanks, BugSir! This is really helpful to know.

 

Is there a shortcut key setting somewhere? I'd like to reinstate Alt+Z as reopening closed tabs.

I've also found that whilst Ctrl+[arrow] works to switch between tabs on my desktop computer, it isn't working on my laptop. I can't see any difference in the settings between the two installs though. Any help?! 🤔
