I've always been a fan of Maxthon Android Web Browser but it was never my #1 because it wasn't "quite there". Well it looks like is now "there".

The list of all the things this browser does well is too long to go into here. But suffice it to say it is VERY fast, looks gorgeous and does an amazing job of organizing bookmarks and syncing them with the cloud. It also "preloads" links in the background like the stock browser does so when you click a link on an open page the new page opens instantly. Also going back to previous pages is very fast.

One thing this browser does that the stock browser doesn't is to "save your place" in your bookmarks when you go back to them. That way if you click on a bookmark 3 folders deep, it is still in that folder when you return as opposed to the stock browser which returns you to the top layer every time (annoying).

Anyway check it out in the Market (https://play.google.com/store/search?q=maxthon+browser). I prefer the layout and handling of the Maxthon Android Web Browser as opposed to the Maxthon HD For Tablets.

** I am in no way associated with Maxthon Browser or promoting them for my own benefit. I just think it's a great browser.

Am I missing something incredibly obvious or is there no way to import my Google bookmarks into Maxthon? Because it sure seems like there isn't unless I'm forced into using there browser on the desktop as well.

I have about 300 bookmarks...and no way am I recreating them manually.

I'm not sure because I'm not in front of my pc but I think you need to import them on your desktop then sync them from the cloud with your phone. Not hard.

Although I don't believe they will continuously sync in the future as of course Maxthon wants you to use Maxthon.

Yes, it is easy to import your Chrome bookmarks into Maxthon.

Just download the Maxthon Browser to your desktop and sign up for a Maxthon Passport which is like your free cloud account. Then open the browser and click on the menu looking button at the top right and then click on the star. That will open your Favorites Manager. Click on the 3 vertical dots at the top and select import/export bookmarks. Then select "import Chrome" and there you go.

Next you will need to sync your bookmarks with the cloud then sign in on your phone and sync them there.

Boom, Chrome bookmarks on Maxthon. Easy.

Thx much.

One very broken behavior is Maxthon handling of bottom of page text fields and onscreen keyboards...meaning other browsers like stock or Opera Mobile scroll the field above the keyboard area whereas Maxthon doesn't.

There is a link on XDA (sorry don't have it) for manually finding bookmarks stored location.
MX5 is here!!!!!!!!!!!!

Dude, with favorites/tabs that synch amongst your devices, there is going to be uploads. It now has UUMail, which gives you your own server you name anything you want to create shadow mails to use for your real email addy! + not only makes webpages completely offline for viewing + snapshots you can extract pics/videos and modify them for use in other projects. I'm just on here trying to see what would be the best way to get users into this online community forum with the MX5 so people that have knowledge of android, and what apps can/need to do in the os enviroment can give them proper feedback to finish this product up. What their getting in feedback now is a joke!
