Maxthon (formerly MyIE2) is a browser that uses the WebKit rendering engine to improve browser rendering performance.
After registration on the manufacturer’s website, users can sync bookmarks. The new version offers an integrated Download Manager, mouse gestures, an adblocker, an automatic fill feature for forms and a screenshot tool. From the configuration menu, the browser allows many settings for personalising the browser.
Maxthon 4 is a modern browser that places itself ahead of the competition with the numerous improvements in version 2.5. Drawbacks, however, include that no extensions are available for the browser. However, the browser offers many useful features, including mouse gestures; the use of URL shortcuts and aliases to call up web pages even faster; automatic form filling; opening URL groups with a single click; automatically updating web pages (such as for stock quotes); and a quick search function call.
