Maxthon Cloud Browser is a browsing solution the developers of which tried to give you everything you could possibly want to have in a browser. It's one of the most feature-rich modern browsers available for free at the same time.

The look of the browser is rather simple - a standard slick minimalist design we are used to. There's even more to Maxthon in terms of utilitarian design choices - resizing options and closing buttons only appear when you move your cursor over to the respective parts of the interface. But don't be fooled, it's not a minimalist experience to use this one. Maxthon is a twin-engine browser, including both the Trident page-rendering engine and Webkit. Its cloud functionality comes from integrated services Cloud Push and Cloud Download enabling users to send content to other devices and save Web downloads to cloud storage.

Maxthon is packed with additional features that provide rather unique browsing experience. It has a tool called Ad-Skipper that lets you speed up video ads to get rid of them faster. Resource Sniffer, in turn, helps you find any video, audio or any other kind of files you would like to download from a page. Then there's Magic Fill, a multi-account password manager; instant access to standard system tools from the toolbar; Night Mode to darken bright interface elements on any site, etc.

Maxthon is one of the fastest modern browsers and offers a great deal of privacy protection, with Do Not Track mode turned on by default. Its cloud functionality works great. The only flaws I can think of are the smaller interface inconveniences that can easily be fixed with an update.

I love this browser, above any other that I have tried, it is fast, it saves all login details if you want & has some really unique features. Take the time to look around, see what is available, worth the time, really it is. I really don't like using other browser's since I've got to know this. A word of advice, the fact that this is capable of save all login details, you never need to type anything in, just click sigh in button, it might be a good idea to have details written down in a safe place, in case you cant access maxthon for any reason, then you can pull them out if you use another browser, or you could find yourself with big problem, being unable to logon to your favourite sites, simply because you can't recall the detail. As I say you'll almost never need to type them in with Maxthon, as its done for you. If others use the same PC I advise you set passwords for your profile,or you might end up spending if others use maxthon & your websites with stored cards,only a click of the mouse can be a payment you can ill afforded. For me, this is a the very best without any question, try it I highly recommend this is a 1st class browser. It is small enough to use with all the features on tablets,phones or most devices in fact,benefits are exactly as I have, on my desktop & laptop too. Great bonus.

Good, but not as good as FIREFOX OR CHROME.

Akash, where are resource sniffers standard to either FF or Chrome? I never saw them.
