Maxthon Mobile Browser
Current Version 2.2 build 2782

We recently launched our mobile browser, and would love to hear what you guys think about it. I believe if our app will NOT achieve any success if we do not pay very very close attention to our users. We have to thank all of the wonderful folks here at XDA who provided many great suggestions to our product. The suggestions/comments are extremely useful and valuable.

- RSS reader widget - Find, manage and read your favorite content quickly and easily
- Speed Dial - Quick access of the best sites on the web.

I dont understand the gestures. Is there a way to set your own? Is there a way to just go back or forward with a screen swipe? I see the yellow line but I dont see any settings for it.

Other then that, its passed my 10 minute test. Ill try it longer. Haven't tried flash yet, or sharing links, copy and paste. Cool ui though. Very miren.

I'm trying to signin to any google service, e.g. mail, reader, directly from homepage, ...
problem prolly exists with 2-way-auth only, make sure to enable that for testing. I just confirmed the issue in SDK emulator, it's definitly a bug in your browser, doesn't happen in any other

Been using this for past couple of days.

Good points.
1 Fast but not the fastest
2 Instant back
3 RSS doesn't seem to auto start any more
4 Nice layout

Bad points
1 Uses way too much memory, only had Maxthon running with one tab but it was using over 95mb & between 0 & 60% of CPU
2 No real way to customise search engines, always searches & not
3 Start page with the collapsible links looks like Miren & again doesn't seem to allow changing or editing the links

All in all a lot better than v1 but still some room for improvement, suffice to say uninstalled dolphin mini to use this as backup browser as Xscope Pro is main browser.

1. If you open a secure link from another app (say my friend sends me a Facebook link, then it puts HTTP:// in from of the already existing protocol designator. That should be fixed.
2. It still has the issue where sometimes on opening it it will reopen links that I've clicked before in a new tab and I have to close it.

3. You should definitely get flash options working (e.g. always on, click to play, etc) because A. flash ads are annoying and mess with mobile formatting and B. they use a lot of memory.
4. It would be really nice if we could choose what the default page is, like bookmarks or a new tab page or something. I never use the home page with all those links, I'd like to be able to open the browser straight to whatever page I want.
5. This isn't an issue, just personal preference... I love that you guys got themes working, but I don't really like glossy gradients, like on the tab. I think it would look better if it were just a dark gray to medium gray from the bottom to the top of the tap to give it a shadowy look instead of shiny. (that's on the gray theme of course but the same principle would apply.)

All in all, great work and you guys have really improved this browser.
