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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

After downloading and trying out Maxthon I see that like Opera Next it's based on Google Chrome. It has a long way to go before it's a competitive browser for my every day use, but it's already well ahead of Opera Next in features so I'm giving this release 4 stars as a sign of my optimism. I will watch its development with great interest.
