MxNitro - The Fastest Browser I Have Ever Used!

  1. #11


    I have always enjoyed my experience with Maxthon. It's good to see a lighter version is coming out. People such as myself, who (even though I have no real need considering my tower lol ) still like to keep as light as possible. I know oodles and oodles of people who will have like 50+ tabs open and that just is eye popping to me. I may have two open and even I will close at least one eventually.

    I guess old habits from NT/Vista where speed was everything is still just there...long live the pentium! heh...

    I plan to download this tonight and look at it further. Thanks for this thread Karl great read and great information.

    For those who need Adobe Flash Player: don't bother, it wont work in MxNitro. HTML5 videos work well although for instance YouTube full screen is not true full screen, browser title and address bars as well as Windows taskbar stay visible, full screen only filling the area in between those.

    I think the security has not been their main concern in designing MxNitro. Hints of that can be read between the lines of the official press release:

    ...

    “Our focus groups and longitudinal surveys detail a growing segment of
    users who want speed above all else. 80% of users say that speed is their #1 decision-making criteria and that they are willing to forego extensive features and add-ons to get more of it,” said Jeff Chen, CEO of Maxthon. “This product is dedicated solely to that important and growing consumer niche.”
    ...
    (Full press release: [Press Release] Maxthon Releases MxNitro Beta, the Fastest PC Browser in the World Maxthon Blog)

    I think I fit their target segment: I want a fast browser, I do not need ad-blockers or any other extensions and add-ons, I do my surfing in relatively safe sites having no need to browse xxx, warez and torrent or any other high risk sites, I take relatively good care of my computer and network security and so on.

    I would not recommend MxNitro for torrent hunting, not even to be used for web based email. Also the lack of flash might be a deal breaker for some users although HTML5 works well.

    That being said, for me it is super, so incredibly fast.
