Thinks that they can outsmart everyone else.
When you start bundling crap with your web browser, you know that there is something fundamentally wrong with your priorities. So, what do you do when you have already lost your dignity and suck at pretty much everything you do? You cheat, obviously.
After claiming that Maxthon scores a total of 467 points in the HTML5Test, Niels Leenheer has found out that this is not exactly the case. In fact, they enabled features that do not actually work, just to boost the meaningless score.
Dear @Maxthon, please do not enable webkit features that do not work. I’ve blacklisted your browser on WebGL, getUserMedia and subtitles.
Also @Maxthon please disable these features in the next version (unless they work) or I will remove Maxthon from html5test browser lists.
The latest version of Maxthon scores 422 points on html5test.com instead of 467. If you don’t support features, don’t claim you do!
You guys wanted publicity? Well, here you have it. Good job, Maxthon.
