I had never really noted the Maxthon Browser before. Had you? It comes in two varieties at the moment: Classic (which I am currently using) and a fancier version, which I have also downloaded. The latter looks good, but it seems that only the Classic, at the moment, enables the Windows Live Writer plug-in, which I am also using right now. (Firefox, my default browser, also allows WLW, which is my blog tool of choice these days, having much more to offer than the Flock Browser’s blog tool, and some advantages over using WordPress.com directly — the ability to do things like this, for example, and it is great with pics… The exception there is that it is best to use WP direct to embed YouTubes, and to insert PDF files or Powerpoints.)
Maxthon is originally Chinese, it appears. You can give yourself a very Chinese-looking skin, if you want to…
Maxthon 2.1.3 — the fancy one.
The really good thing about both of them is that they don’t strain my Toshiba’s resources the way IE7 does.
Not bad at all, so far as I can tell, and worth considering.
