Maxthon - A good Web Browser
    #3296298 - 10/30/04 06:07 AM (12 years, 10 months ago)

Maxthon Homepage CLICK HERE
I have used Maxthon, formerly IE2, for quite a while now and wanted to share it with other people.

I liked some things about ie, and very much did not like other things.  This browser is based off IE, and has many features that are not found in IE.  So everything is compatable and its a cool program.
Enjoy :smile:

I've used that. It does have better security than IE, and the tabbed browsing is nice. However, it's still based off of IE so I prefer to use Firefox.

you can customize this browser however you like. Turn activex off or whatever you like.

I had opera, thats a great browser. I also had firefox, which I didn't to much care for.

This is about in the middle. Not as much customizability as opera but more compatable than both it and firefox in my experience.

well, ok. but it's still built on the IE engine which still has plenty of security holes that havent been resolved (and if history proves correct, there'll be more security holes discovered in the furture - MS is hardly as concerned with continuous develop as seen with Opera & Mozilla communities). plus, anything IE is not standards compliant and handles transparent .pngs and CSS real weird.
