Powered by the tool’s cloud engine, this app goes beyond other browsers to make the true seamless browsing experience a reality.

Maxthon is not limited to a single device ecosystem or operating system. It moves more types of data from browser to browser without detouring through a series of cloud-products. Simply put, It removes artificial limits of device type or operating system, moving and putting all that is important to users into one or all of their web-connected devices.

It still retains every essential tool and functionality of standard web browsers today while running very fast and having unique features. The search bar is at the top, the suggested pages are at the bottom, the window is situated at the upper right side and the tools and options are placed on the upper left side. Opening tabs show the web browser toolbar for a minimal and less cluttered page. Users can resume their activities from desktop to mobile devices since every activity is recorded.

Users can sync across platforms to handle online activities like emails, file sharing, and even communication. The Maxnote is for bookmarks management where users save their favorite websites while editing the viewing method. The Passkeeper provides password securing with password generation that has a very encrypted combination. It fills the generated password for making any new accounts.

The email is a centralized email service where it can host all different email accounts. Users can manage their various accounts like categorization, custom rules, messaging and even creation of virtual email addresses. These 3 Maxthon Cloud browser features enable fast switching since the tabs are running above the web browser interface. The web browser offers its own custom skins and web extensions to enhance the online surfing experience.

Users can change the skin of this web browser so that it looks personalized and unique. Most of them are made by users too. The extensions meanwhile function like any other web extensions found on popular websites. Each of them serves different kinds of functions such as cache eraser, media downloader, social media shortcuts, translator, and so on.

The Browser addresses the fundamental issue faced by web users today: how to access and use all the web has to offer with different devices in a seamless and unified way, any time and any place.
