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 The term 'unpublished capabilities' is going to become much more commonplace over the next few years. The Russians are so nervous about the 'unpublished capabilities' of western produced hardware /software platforms that they have generated their own state funded computer industry. The Chinese are doing the exact same thing and you can bet your life that they are very keen on coming up with a few 'unpublished capabilities; of their own. I'm really sorry if this browser is totally safe and squeaky-clean but the risk is just too big for me to consider using it.

This is a stripped down version; no extensions, no tracking, less memory; I have used this to download, and other Browser actions; it has not failed me once; I have done research and learned you have either an optiom to download from the site or Apple Store(both free) As I wish to be notified when available downloads arrive; I downloaded from the Maxthon site.

The entire western World is kicking and screaming about the dangers of Chinese technology and your 'research' hasn't triggered alarm bells about installing a Chinese web-browser? Are you a Chinese stooge?

This WAS a dead browser. So why is it back again?
My previous testing found it to be worst-in-class.
Avoid.
Oh and it's Chinese, just so you know.
Oh, Oh creepy that MU doesn't offer a developer link. (O_o)

Well this is embarrassing... I've just left a reply about how fast this is and how it's nearly my browser of choice. Straight off, I went to the App store to check if there were any new versions, and to look at the changelog. No changes since 2014, and worse still, a note from a contributor confirming that Maxthon Browser has been dropped as a Mac app by Maxthon, and will no longer be updated. Red faced, I back off into the bushes. Macupdate Moderators action required?

The Flash version included by default is now blocked by Adobe, and will not run. As it doesn't appear to be possible to update the component independently, this browser just became the binary equivalent of a paperweight.

@Zenpilot, Jul 23rd 2015: That's not a fix, that's a workaround, I'm afraid. It requires the installation of the system-wide Flash Player. This means Safari (and any other installed browsers) would gain Flash Player too. The whole point of using Maxthon is that it uses the embedded PPAPI-type Flash Player, which is sandboxed by default, and isn't accessible by any app other than Maxthon.

I have this on Android, where it works perfectly and is blisteringly quick.
The video issue must have been fixed as I'm sat here watching utube videos, and, unlike Safari, with no lag.
Maxthon is well worth a look, seems faster than even Roccat. It's a day or two away from becoming my default browser. Thanks to the Devs for all their hard work. moving this over to the Mac platform.

I recently did some security related testing of web browsers Maxthon was the only one that FAILed on the Mac platform. It's not keeping up with Internet security flaws, not updating often enough, not updating adequately. I have to give it a FAIL grade and suggest using something better. That's a shame. I like competition in the browser market. But this one is dead last IMHO. Alternative: I'm impressed with White Hat's rendition of Chromium. It's called Aviator. It's the only version of Chromium I bother with any longer as I'm deadly sick of Google anything, apart from their search engine. This is a striping out of Google surveillance I can live with. It comes with the excellent (if overkill) Disconnect add-on built-in by default. That's nice security.

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.
