Chrome may be the faster bowser out there, but that is just because they didn't care to test Maxtho

Here are the speed tests and the results, I only cared about Chrome and Firefox because these two are fastest, if you need evidence for this please look at the many speed run tests online of the newest versions...

Here are the results in comparison to Maxthon:

I did this test out of curiosity because I wanted to know if I was using the fastest bowser but now I'm switching to Maxthon of course. Some people treat Web Browsers like religions, though, unfortunately.

Interesting. Thanks, I'll check it out.

Too bad it's only PC...

On a Mac, Chrome is the way to go.

Wish Google would make an iOS based web browser so I don't have to use safari on my iPhone.

Also wish Google would put insane security features into the build, oh and stop collecting our data.

But seriously, Chrome for iOS would be awesome.

i used maxthon as my primary browser for years.

before firefox or any other tabbed browsers were around, maxthon (called MyIE then) had tabs and all sorts of awesome features, addons and skins.

apparently its huge in china, but just not very well known in the states.

its a really good browser for most things, only use firefox cause im used to it more now :/

So how did you go about testing Maxthon?

posted on Apr, 21 2012 @ 03:51 PM
I didn't know about Maxthon

Going to give it a try, using Chrome and has done for years.

I can't believe I've never heard of Maxthon, it looks really good actually. But I'm already a Firefox guy and I'll never turn back. The difference between Firefox and Chrome is negligible. Plus, I think most of the difference comes down the fact that Firefox has been in development for years longer than Chrome. Give it a few more years and Chrome will slowly reach the same speed as Firefox now. Just like a computer gets slower with time, browsers will do the same thing as they get more complex. Firefox also has countless extensions for everything imaginable and they make my life so much more damn easier. I literally have about 50 different add-ons installed which I use regularly. Firefox ftw.

So how are you coming to these 'scores'? It isn't the average of all the scores... All of the scores aren't consistent with the tests given. 'Maxthon' isn't even tested against "Navier-Stokes".. which implies Maxthon is not compatible with Unity or other web based physics engines. If it is tested for on Chrome and Firefox but not Maxthon then we aren't comparing apples-to-apples. What bench marking software are you using to test these browsers with?

posted on Apr, 22 2012 @ 06:39 PM
I don't like synthetic tests for real world tasks, I prefer to test myself some of the sites I usually visit and see what browser is the fastest.

The last time I checked, Opera was the fastest, and it's also my favourite.

That is based on faith rather than fact. They say "fastest browser" but that is not true. There are many test that prove otherwise.

Saying that a bowser is faster and ignoring the actual evidence against it.

What benchmark are you using? I don't get anything near those results.

posted on May, 12 2012 @ 08:07 PM
I switched over to Chrome because I was told it was less vulnerable than IE8 to viruses. But Chrome is very poor on printing - even with its "IE" adaptor extensions. I tried to replace my virused IE8 in this way but it was a total SNAFU - first, uninstall IE8, then try to download a new IE8 via Chrome; never worked, never, and finally had to do a system restore to get IE8 back again and try running an IE upgrade via the IE8 (which was only partly gratifying).

Don't know how Maxton (or whatever) is on printing, or on resisting viruses. Maybe someone should include comments in evaluating the various browsers.

Well, I tried Maxthon 3.

It looks clean and fresh and all. But my FF renders ATS much faster, with "retro" style rendering only!

Just giving another update of currently the fastest web browser. I know that some people are just not "used" to this, or they are so familiar with FireFox or Chrome that they don't wanna switch. Just updating the test results of the newest version of Maxthon. It gets faster with New Release, and Maxthon is updated more often than Firefox or Chrome.

My problem with it is that it isn't much faster than Opera and doesn't have all the features Opera has and that I use frequently.

It gets faster with New Release, and Maxthon is updated more often than Firefox or Chrome.
I get updates for Firefox (Beta versions) every week.

I tested Oprah as well and it was a bit slower than Chrome (Much slower than Maxthon). What features does Oprah have that Maxthon does not?

reply to post by arpgme

It's Opera, not Oprah.

I see that Maxthon, like most other browsers, has been copying things from Opera, but Opera still has some things that I use frequently and that Maxthon (from what I have seen) does not:

- a very good way of defining search engines that let's me have a list of several search engines that I can use just by choosing from the right-click menu, so I can search something on Google or on Wikipedia or TinEye very quickly.

- it shows the EXIF data of images.

- it has an easy way of opening a new tab from almost all places where you can follow a url.

- email client.

- torrent client.

- an easy to use content blocker.

- an easy to use page preferences manager, that let's us manage pop-ups, cookies, scripting, etc. for any page.

But I saw some things I like in Maxthon, so I am keeping it.

PS: this post was made with Maxthon v3.3.9.2000.
