Hi guys,

Today, Maxthon is very excited to release the V1.0.1.0 Beta for Linux.
Please check below the changes in this release:

  • Adjusted UI to make it look better on low-resolutions, such as 1366*768.
  • Added Favorites button on Tool Bar. Click it to show your favorites and hide it in settings. You can hide the Favorites bar when more page room is required.
  • Neither ‘duplicate URLs’ nor ‘pinned tabs’ will be added into Last Session page.
  • The install and uninstall scripts (Install.sh and Uninstall.sh) have been added to tgz packages.
Please note: This release is a trial version instead of a final release. Thus, it may have bugs or other potential problems.

Maximum PC: Maxthon Browser Extends Reach into Linux Territory

Thursday, March 27th, 2014

Now Linux users can run Maxthon, too

Over the years, the Maxthon browser (formerly known as MyIE2 way back in the day) has spread its reach beyond Windows and into different platforms, including the Mac and three mobile OSes: Android, iOS, and Windows Phone. Wondering where the love for Linux is at? You don’t need to wonder anymore, because you can now download 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Maxthon for Linux.

The Linux version retains Maxthon’s popular features, such as Magic Fill (AES 256-level encrypted password and user account prompt), mouse gestures, easy tab management, ‘Restore Last’ button, extensions, and more.

“The addition of Linux takes our core value proposition – high performance, independent, multi-platform browsing – one step further,” said Karl Mattson, VP of Maxthon’s International Division. “Desktop computing is evolving beyond the one-OS-to-rule-them-all dynamic and as that develops, Maxthon will be right there offering high performance alternative web browsers on the platforms that matter.”

If you want to give it a spin, you can download Maxthon for Linux (as well as other platforms) from here.

Softpedia: Maxthon Cloud Browser Officially Released on Linux, Features Google Extension Support

Thursday, March 27th, 2014

The Maxthon Cloud Browser, a famous Internet browser for the Windows, Mac OS X, iOS, and Android platforms, has just received a Linux version.

Maxthon, believe it or not, has been around for a very long time. It was previously known as MyIE2 and it was using the Internet explorer engine. It was mostly used in Asia, but it also had a small following in Europe and in the United States.

The Maxthon developers realized that the Trident engine that is also used in Internet explorer would not get them very far. They had to adopt the WebKit engine as well in order to get more traction on other platforms. WebKit was used, until a short while ago, by Chromium and Google Chrome. The Safaribrowser on Mac OS X is still making use of it.

Maxthon Ltd., the company that makes the Maxthon Cloud Browser, has announced that the first stable version of the browser on the Linux platform is finally here and users are invited to test it.

The Linux community has been asking Maxthon for a version on theopen source platform for quite some time, and a Beta was made available a while ago. Now, a stable release is out and it will most likely be a pleasant surprise for users.

When you first open the Internet browser you will notice a striking resemblance with Google Chrome, but that is mostly due to the WebKit engine. The resemblance is significant, but the browser is different enough so you won’t notice it for long.

Users can also create a Maxthon passport, which is actually a cloud account, like the one used by Google Chrome. As a side note and a rather interesting fact, Maxthon implemented the possibility to save your bookmarks, cookies, and other preferences in the cloud long before Google Chrome developers had the idea.

One of the most interesting things about Maxthon Cloud Browser is the fact that it’s compatible with Google Web Store. Users can download and use most of the extensions and apps from the store, which provides a huge support base for the Chinese-made browser.

The developer provided a number of different download formats for the browser, including the source package, which can be used to compile your own version. We tested the application in Ubuntu 14.04 LTS, which is not even out yet, and it works like a charm.

More details about the Maxthon Cloud Browser can be found in the official announcementDownload Maxthon Cloud Browser 1.0.0.1 right now from Softpedia.
