As previously reported, Maxthon 3 has been quite good at supporting the upcoming HTML5 standards. Now, after tasting the sweet fruits of victory, Maxthon developers continue to march forward with a new release.
So what’s new?
The beta build of Maxthon 3.3.9 web browser improves the HTML5Test score by a total of 15 points, up from 437+13 to 452+13.
In addition to that, we were notified that while it only scores 13 bonus points, it’s a bug and will likely to be fixed in the future releases.
As Shane Bundy explained, “the reason why Maxthon only scores 13 bonus points is because of a bug that assumes Maxthon cannot support MP4 playback (which it can). This will be fixed in a later update.”
Maxthon Browser 188.8.131.520 Changelog
- Supported HTML5 Microdata
- Added “Internet Options” to proxy menu
- Added message prompt when exited Maxthon Browser
… and bug fixes
If you are installing the following build, be warned as it’s set itself as a default web browser, even as a dev build.
Maxthon Browser 184.108.40.2060 Beta
[Thanks, Hiram, Shane]
