Software update: Maxthon 2.5.3 build 80

A new version of the web browser Maxthon was released on Tuesday. Maxthon is not a standalone program, but a so-called wrapper that sits like a shell around Internet Explorer. The program uses IE’s internal engine to build the pages, but has its own interface with all kinds of extra functionality, including mouse gestures and online bookmarks. The changelog of this release shows the following changes and improvements:


  • Fixed gmail attachment problem
  • Fixed input problem of certain keyboard layout
  • Fixed input problem of certain custom activex controls
  • Fixed a Chinese character input problem in a website
  • Download tools support Flashget3, BitComet, and Thunder Mini
