Lasting change is the result of many factors, but there is always a catalyst: some person or event, which galvanizes the public and transforms behavior. Few companies have the privilege of launching such a movement – Apple is one, Microsoft another – but there is always room for further evolution. For Jeff Chen, this sense of urgency – the belief that information should be accessible and intelligible – is at the center of the most important event in the recent history of modern technology: the creation of a better Internet browser; the rise of Maxthon International.
Jeff is, in many respects, a classic example of the inventor-as-entrepreneur (or vice versa), someone who sees a need – the demand for a better browser – and creates a solution. Such people are at the heart of the revolution in technology, a situation where individuals create the products they want – the innovations consumers value – and realign an entire industry. Maxthon is the embodiment of this ideal: a fast, efficient and easy to use browser, which is also a global phenomenon.
For this international community of users, Jeff’s dedication is a point of respect and distinction; he symbolizes the belief, one we share with equal passion, which puts technology directly in the hands of people who share ideas, trade stories and spread the word about new products. Most importantly, Jeff is accessible; he wants to hear – no, we all want to read – your stories about using the Maxthon browser, because your support is crucial to constantly improving the ease with which we use the Internet.
Consider this post an experession of thanks from all of us here at Maxthon. And to Jeff, we salute his hard work and enthusiasm.
