I personally like Maxthon because it uses so little resources, giving your CPU more room for running other applications. Unlike IE7 and Firefox, they can go up to 40-60 K on browsing. Can't wait for this now. :D

Well Maxthon use less resources than Firefox and IE7. Maxthon Use the IE Browse Motor...
Maxthon is nice... but... i like Firefox. Firefox is Faster, Stable and THE BEST BROWSER!

For the people with a slow machine and dont want to use firefox because it use more resources than Maxthon, they have an alternative... The SAFEMODE of Firefox.

Start -> All Programs -> Mozilla Firefox -> Mozilla Firefox (Safe Mode)

or

[WinKey]+R (or Start -> Run) -> firefox -safemode


But i dont said: MAXTHON SUCKS!; Maxthon is a very nice Browser. and is a good alternative for IE users.

Because IE7 is having tabs so all the IE based browsers like Maxthon, Avant etc. will be obsoltete unless they don't bring something new.

IE7 is nice, but maxthon still has it with script blocking and features that allow you to run with the IE engine safely. Firefox is a great browser, but I pick Maxthon over it anyday. Mainly because it's fast and safe using the IE engine. As far as it goes with skins and addons, The Fox beats it hands down. Maxthon 2 might win in the future. We just have to wait and see.

After testing it, it does everything IE7 does but more.

Definitely my favorite browser :)

C. Guy,
Once you use Maxthon, it'll be hard to look back at any IE Shell or browser. The one I'm using is still in beta and only donators can enter the private testing. Maxthon 1.5 is available and it's faster and stable than any browser. Give it a try! Once Maxthon 2.0 releases, it's gonna blow your mind.

If you use AOL or Yahoo! features alot, try my plugins for Maxthon(AOL & Yahoo!).

does it use the IE6, or the IE7 engine?
cos if it uses IE6 engine, then it sucks what ever features it has, there are so many problems with than engine, espcially when it comes down to support form (x)html and css 2.0. The IE7 engine isn't much better, but its better than IE6 engine.

Gaz,
It uses whatever engine you have installed on the PC. Maxthon 2.0 will definitely use the IE7 engine.

IE6 engine doesn't suck at all. I've been using Maxthon for a long time now and got nothing. Maxthon's security is superb! I guarantee when you try it you won't look back.

Everyone is gonna say don't use IE because of virus and everything else. You won't catch 'em if you have a good FIREWALL for one thing and a nice browser like Maxthon to block unwanted Ads, Scripts and whatever you want blocked. The only reason IE is downed so much is because majority of the hackers attack it. If they concentrated on Firefox, Opera and other browser as much as they did IE, those browsers will have the same problem.

Maxthon web browser make browsing with IE as secure as the others and better because it has pluggins(Which I've also created tons for) and has no problem with loading sites correctly because it uses the IE engine.
