Maxthon is a Web Browser which is not among the Top 5 Browsers but has won About.com’s reader’s choice award for 2011 and 2012 in Best Small Market Desktop Browser. After Exploring and doing some testing I got few qualities and features which is better than other browsers.
As usual it has almost all the features which General Browsers such as Private Browsing, Bookmarking, Skins, Extensions, Speeddials, URL Auto Complete. Other Browsers have Extensions and Adons which need to be installed Sepately and it consumes much Memory and RAM. But Maxthon have many Preinstalled Features and Extensions which makes the Browser Better. It has Skin Manager and Extension manager using which you can Install different Skins and Extensions from the Internet.
