Anyone who chooses to use a Chinese made web-browser must be barking mad. The term 'unpublished capabilities' is going to become much more commonplace over the next few years. The Russians are so nervous about the 'unpublished more...

It was a good browser. But since Janury/Febrery has no updates for Mac. It use an old version of chromium. And the Chromw App Store is not compatible with Maxthon anymore. Evenmore, i write in Maxthon's Facebook and Twitter accounts, and they didn't anser

There doesn't seem to be any way of stopping this application from attempting to update itself whenever you launch it. Any hidden settings that I can take advantage of? If not, I may have to find another browser, I don't like having updates forced on me. You can't even stop it in the middle of the update process, it's all done in the background. The only warning you have is when the Maxthon disk image suddenly flickers on to and then off your Desktop in a matter of seconds.
Also, the current size is 310MB! That's huge for a browser, considering Safari is 44.4MB. GarageBand '11 is 375MB. I suspect it keeps old versions around, à la Google Chrome. Another reason to update this thing manually.

1Password now works again on Maxthon (and Chromium) if you make a small adjustment in 1P's settings. Go to 1P's Preferences -> Advanced and uncheck the bottom most item "Verify browser code signature." This allows unsigned browsers like Chromium and Maxthon to access 1P. Just be sure not to try to add 1P to any browser you're not sure of. I'm sure of Maxthon and Chromium. I'm not sure of SRWare Iron.

OK, here comes my xenophobia again.

Regardless of their privacy declaration, Maxthon is a product of the Peoples Republic of China.

I was about to download it until I followed it to its source.

Maxthon continues to work with 1Password despite the fact that 1P v.4 no longer supports Chromium. Install the 1P beta from the Chrome Web store to keep1P v.4 functioning on Maxthon.

Unfortunately, the new version of 1Password, v. 4, does not work with Maxthon. I've switched to LastPass.

AgileBits has recently added an option to 1Password allowing us to disable the function that prevents 1P from being installed on both Maxthon and Chromium. If you've abandoned one or both of these browsers because 1P has not been working on it, try again after unclicking "Verify browser code signature" in the Advanced Preferences.

Correction: I can't sign into gmail because, according to Google's diagnosis of the problem, Maxthon is not one of Google's supported browsers. Looks like Maxthon has blown its cover with this version.

Given what we now know about how American based internet software has been compromised by the US Government, how could anyone possibly trust a Chinese web-browser? It's really sad it's come to this but this is a debate we must have. The Internet community must have gold standard web-browser project that that has total code-intergrity.

Simty, why are you replying to my technical thread with your paranoid post?
"Given what we know" it's the ISP's cooperating with the NSA in intercepting e-mails, not any particular browsers that are being compromised. If you're worried about the NSA tracking you keep your tinfoil hat on and get better security apps for your machine.

@ Simty, you're spot on! An extremely important concern and most valid issue. Especially for those who entrust their passwords and personal data.

No problems for me so far on OS 10.8.4. If you're upgrading from a previous version try clearing all your browsing data and restarting.

Yeah, cleared out all previous Maxthon files. Maybe it's a 10.6.8 thing.

As of v. 4.0.6.3000 I'm upgrading my overall rating of this browser to 5 stars. I've been using it for a couple of months as my primary browser and I've concluded that while no browser is faultless Maxthon best meets my needs at this time. It has all the virtues of Google Chrome and none of the problems of Google. See my posts below for my discoveries about its virtues.

This one is much better in all respects: stability, speed, rendering. I hope Opera "Next" looks and feels like that when its final release comes.
