Maxthon Mobile for Android: With Finger Gestures and Multi Platform Synch to

Just few weeks after the initial release of Maxthon for Android, here comes the second build of Maxthon Mobile.

According to the official announcement, the following versions introduces two new features:

– Synchronization of cross-platform information
– New finger gestures

The synchronization feature allows users to manipulate data, such as contacts and favorites, from any Maxthon platform on PC or an Android phone. A user, for example, can use Maxthon on his PC to sort a collection of contacts by phone area code. When he opens the same contacts using Maxthon Mobile on his phone, the contacts will be in the same order as on the computer.

The new mobile browser is the result of a vibrant, ongoing dialogue between Maxthon developers and users, which is how Maxthon discovered that users wanted a touch screen “undo” gesture to reopen a tab they had closed inadvertently. The new gesture is a reverse “c,” the opposite of the gesture to close a tab.

    Maxthon is a crappy browser from a crappy company. Much like Skyfire. Liars and cheaters, basically.

    @nvm: Do you have any problems with the browser or the company itself?

    Maxthon is a great browser with great features. If you don’t like don’t use it.

      I use it here and there and it definitely lacks a few too many features for me to use it on a regular basis but I like the direction that it’s going in.
