Heads up! A new Maxthon 4 build, 18.104.22.16800 (RC), was recently released, it’s mostly a bug fixes release with no major changes. Sorry guys; no skin support yet! Who needs that anyway? *looks at angry mob* we all do of course.

Love it or hate it, the windows 8 start screen is certainly something that will not go away soon. What makes using the start screen much more bearable is a small, neat application called OblyTile, this program makes it possible to add “tiles” (the bunch of colored squares you see on the start screen) to launch any application you would wish to add to this screen. This is quite different from adding a shortcut to the startscreen from the “All apps” screen; by using oblytile you are able to choose an image that represents this application rather than being stuck with the incredibly ugly default way of showing non-Metro applications on the start screen.
It all started with a small, relatively unknown browser named MyIE in 1999, that was then renamed to Maxthon (version 1) on 2003, from there, a journey of exciting features additions, dramatic features omissions and lots and lots of forum posts followed, until 14 years later, when the latest version of Maxthon – version 4- was released. Just 4 major releases? I wonder what would happen If chrome developers created Maxthon. Hmmm..
Nevermind, this isn’t interesting. You are not reading this for a history lesson full of material copied from wikipedia, are you? What’s really interesting is how the developers of Maxthon managed to survive all the widely-changing world of technology without being left in the dark corner of irrelevance. A feat achieved only by a few number of applications.
Below this post are old posts that were created when this blog was active, long, long time ago. Above is where, hopefully, all-new, posts concerning Maxthon again will be posted. So keep an eye on this direction.
