Title: Is Maxthon Web Browser Safe?
Post by: Execute on September 30, 2015, 12:19:38 pm
No matter if you have used the Maxthon browser before or not - do you feel safe browsing with it? Do you find it trustworthy? Why?

Also, what features have you found useful? Anything that can make it safer? I see it has a feature for clearing private data and browsing history in the Settings menu. All that data should be stored on a user's computer, but at the same time it is a cloud browser? Is any of that data stored in the cloud? What do you think and what have you found about the matter? ??? I am also not sure about what happens when you download files through it - does the browser has any anti-virus or anti-phishing scanner inbuilt?

I have heard of the browsers Tor and Comodo Dragon before. But, Tor is based on anonimity. It hides your IP address and changes your location every time you log in from it. As for Comodo Dragon I have yet to try. People tell me, it scans pages about tracking so it could be a good browser to log into sites, with sensitive information credentials.

What other browsers do you know of?  ???

 :o I compare Maxthon with another browsers and would say that this is good alternative and trustworthy engine. http://web-browsers.softwareinsider.com/compare/3-27/Chrome-vs-Maxthon -  you can see some details here. Good luck

@Vermon - thank you for that post, it was very helpful and now I feel a bit safer surfing the net with Maxthon!
And undoubtedly, for me, it's the fastest browser I have used so far.  :)
