Maxthon is better than Firefox 

I switched over to today to have a play, but in doing so, I researched a bit more about Maxthon, which has been, for the last year, my of choice.
   In doing so, I learned that Maxthon is from a -based outfit that is keen to provide to users, who normally have to put up with state censorship.
   Stefanie Olsen in CNetnews.com wrote:

Maxthon, a browser made by a tiny Beijing company of the same name, has attracted millions of users in for functionality that can funnel traffic through a Web proxy and circumvent controls on in search engines like Google, Yahoo, MSN, Baidu.com and other popular sites or Internet service providers in that country.

   I think it’s a heroic effort, because these folks are taking quite a risk in even making the browser. And I’m very happy to hear how it’s nearing 70 million downloads as well.
   As I wrote earlier in the year, I prefer it to Firefox. will get users as an efficient browser made independently, but somehow I would think Maxthon’s aim of giving freedom to a country that is denied it is a very appealing . Word hasn’t got out in as big a way, but I hope that once people learn of the aspect of the Chinese browser, and its overall stability, that Maxthon will get more converts.

Entries from 2006 to the end of 2009 were done on the Blogger service. As of January 1, 2010, this blog has shifted to a Wordpress installation, with the latest posts here.
   With Blogger ceasing to support FTP publishing on May 1, I have decided to turn these older pages in to an archive, so you will no longer be able to enter comments. However, you can comment on entries posted after January 1, 2010.
