Maxthon 3 is the newest member of the Maxthon family. Maxthon 3 has Dual Display Engines, two website rendering states that cover the WHOLE web in two modes: Ultra and Retro. Ultra, which uses Webkit, makes your surfing faster for newer, more current websites built to newer standards. Retro, which uses Trident, handles old, outdated and Microsoft IE optimized sites. Basically, Retro eliminates those moments when you go to a web page and parts of it don't work due to its ancient code. A dead give away for those sites is the dreaded, "This site works best in IE' message. In addition, Maxthon 3 has some pretty cool features that make your web surfing easier and faster: Mouse Gesture, Magic Fill, Ad Hunter, Smart Address Bar,and Online Favorites.
Dual Display Engines for super fast and flawless loading of all web pages – old
standards and new. Tired of broken and slow web pages? Our Dual Display Engines recognize and load
non-standard pages faster than any other browser.
Maxthon uses its Ultra Mode technology by default, switching to Retro Mode only when necessary to fix and display older-style websites
Many old websites are engineered with outdated standards. These old sites will fail to display, have broken features and often crash the browser. The new Maxthon 3 has one-of-a-kind solution to recognize these problem sites and solve this problem: Retro Mode. Retro Mode is usually automatic. But if, you run into a stubborn, strange page, click the button to the right of the Address bar to switch to Retro Mode. That should fix it and, next time you visit, Maxthon 3 will remember which mode is best for the website.
Maxthon's Ultra Mode is based on the Webkit rendering engine -- the industry standard used by folks like Apple and Google. Maxthon defaults to Ultra Mode, that is best for *most* websites. Older websites work best with another rendering engine: Trident. Maxthon 3 is the first web browser to utilize both.
By default, Maxthon 3 uses three major processes to make your web surfing sizzle: the Main framework process,、Webkit process and a state-of-the art、resource management process. Enable Retro Mode and you'll get the fourth horseman of Max 3: Trident(IE) processing. This covers all of the bases.
