Statistically, it's the fastest browser, it takes up the least memory and it opens the quickest beating Chrome, FireFox and IE.
But this isn't why I like it.
Some of the features:
Basically, its not that uncommon, but you arrange your home screen to have your favourite pages at the ready, you can also create little pages of them, I've made three pages, main, extra and empty... you scroll between them, its pretty handy and neat. The cool thing is, when I sign into maxthon on another computer it will remember them.
Split Screen Browsing:
Ever get tired of chatting to people on Facebook and trying to do other things on the Web? Now you can! (Without opening 2 windows and painstakingly line them up beside eachtoher )
Press F10 and Maxthon slices in half allowing you to effectivly have 2 broswers in one, drag over tabs, adjust the size of one, and seamlessly switch from both.
Ever want to watch a video, and chat to your friend at the same time? Maybe even play a game?
With Maxthon video, you can drag the video off its very page and take it with you wherever.
You can also set it so that it's always ontop, so no window or game covers it!
WAIT THERES MORE! You can also SAVE any video, from ANY player (Except I think some TV channel websites) so now you can take any trailer from YouTube and watch it whenever you want or edit it for your own benefit.
Like a noise a website uses? Just download it. Click the Resource Sniffer and a list of all the images, videos, audio files and more will be displayed and their sizes so you can just download it.
Click the night mode button and Whites will be black, and other bright colours toned down to make reading easier when you are in a dark room.
On wikipedia? other websites with long text? blogs? Hate adverts? layouts of some pages?
Click the reader mode icon and your page will appear in an article, you can scroll through comfortably. Adjusting font, size, colour and other things I havnt looked at
See an advert you dont like? Click it. Gone forever. Next time you visit it will be a blank spot. Not as good as Chromes/Firefoxs AdBlocker, but it does the job.
Enter your email adress in and you can make yourself a little icon and Maxthon will track you so if you use Maxthon on a mobile or other PC all your Favourites will still be there.
They're the main reasons I use Maxthon. It's all built in, not an add on. I didnt have to look for that stuff it was just there and its really neat. Even small things like, Right clicking a tab to close it, Dragging your mouse left to go back or right to go next or in a circle to refresh is just handy. I love it, They add some cool new feature every month and I've been using it for a year now.
