Maxthon Releases MxNitro Beta, the Fastest PC Browser in the World

MxNitro Browser Offers Quickest Startup Times and Incomparable Page Loading Speeds for Windows PC

SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 15, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — Maxthon, a global software company that develops state-of-the-art web browsers, today released the beta of Maxthon Nitro, the fastest Windows web PC browser currently available. MxNitro starts 3X faster and fetches and loads web pages considerably quicker than any other existing Windows PC browser. This is the newest addition to the company’s family of high-performance web browsers and is targeted at users who want a stripped-down, high performance browser with a minimalist design, a light memory and CPU footprint.

“Our focus groups and longitudinal surveys detail a growing segment of users who want speed above all else. 80% of users say that speed is their #1 decision-making criteria and that they are willing to forego extensive features and add-ons to get more of it,” said Jeff Chen, CEO of Maxthon. “This product is dedicated solely to that important and growing consumer niche.”

Under development since March 2014, Nitro’s streamlined and quick performance is achieved in part by drastically reducing its UI/UX load, adding new, patent-pending pre-connection and pre-fetching technology and by stripping out features that hog resources or cause delays in start-up times and page rendering.

In keeping with Maxthon’s long-standing tradition of community-collaborative development, much of the user-visible product direction of MxNitro has come from the active participation of a beta community of close to 20,000 users. Highlights of the new product include:

  • – Installs and starts 3x faster than the fastest Windows PC browser — Chrome v.37
  • – Loads web pages 30% faster than Chrome v.37
  • – Noticeably speeds up web browsing on any Windows PC made before 2014
  • – Has a clutter-free, intuitive look and feel designed expressly to make new users feel comfortable on first use

“Our flagship product — Mx4, the Maxthon Cloud Browser — is feature-rich and already Formula-1 fast,” said Karl Mattson, VP of Maxthon’s International Division. “Nitro, aptly named, boosts that speed to a whole new level for an underserved market niche: speed minimalists. And this is only the beta.”

  1. Seems the right click on back arrow doesn’t work.
    Also, can’t find a settings button.
    Would like to personalize the “New page” tab.
    Also: when you open a link in a new window (ctrl+left click), the browser takes you in the new page, but it should be the other way: stay on what you’re reading, opening the new tab.

    Thanks

    Andrea

  2. Love it. I use it for browsing for most of my online research etc. I love the minimalism. I dont need all unnecessary addons/extensions bar one….adblock. Please have some form of adblocking.

  3. I really like how simple and minimized it is, being able to launch in a second. Although, it eventually started lagging and crashed a couple of times when under load while I was saving some images. Other than that, It’s probably the best lightweight browser out there. Keep working on it !

      1. Thank you for your attention and we are glad that you like our blogs. If you have any suggestion on the content or anything else, please feel free to contact us.
        Have a nice day!

  4. I love this browser because of it’s low memory footprint. Chrome easily takes over 1GB when 10+ tabs are open. MxNitro barely takes 300MB.

    1. That’s a THOROUGH LIE!

      The Browser is VERY HIGH on CPU usage, and IS NOT VERY FAST!

      Only one window open consumes 11% of my CPU, and Opera with 3 open windows takes only 2,62% and is faster, though there are problems with it also.

      1. Hello there,
        Thank you for your attention to Maxthon. Actually, this problem has been improved in our latest version, so I think you are using an old version, we recommend you upgrade the latest version. And if the issue still occurs, let us know. We well check it as soon as possible.
        Thanks for your support!

  5. I love the minimalization, fludity and speed. Increase the settings options, I can’t see the setting options. It’s really good for a beta/alpha version. Keep working to make it better.

        Have a nice day!

  6. + what I was looking for: slim and functional

    – add favorites import function
    – allow tiles to be personalized
    – adblock reduces speed but should be enabled with choice of usage left to user

  7. Loved the browser very much due to it’sfaster webpage load and lightweight display. The problem is that there are absolutely nothing to personalize. And also can’t change the hompage, new tab page and many other settings because there is no setting menu, option or icon. Please add the settings otherwise. The browser seems boring.

        Have a nice day!

  8. Browser is extremely fast but memory footprint is huge. 100+ MB for a simple DOM light webpage.
    Also, critical shortcuts (ctrl+tab, ctrl+shft+tab, alt+d) are not working and no settings menu.
    When I close a tab it’s going for the previous instead of the next one.

  9. it’s perfect, only thing it needs is Adblocker. I know it reduces speed but the user should have the option to turn it on/off, it’s an important feature for a large amount of users.

    1. It would be intterseing to know what percentage of grown children (without kids of their own) still spend Christmas Eve night with their parents waiting on Santa Claus
