This page provides some basic information and a list of available features of Maxthon 3. You can find detailed information in each individual articles.

What is Maxthon 3?

Maxthon 3 is the first version of Maxthon Browser for PC which combines the rendering engine of Chromium, Webkit, with Internet Explorer's Trident. It was started from scratch, so it is a separate software from previous versions. You can use all three in parallel, however you will have to use portable Maxthon Cloud Browser if you wish to use that simultaneously with version 3, because of the fact that Maxthon Cloud Browser uses the %appdata%, named as Maxthon3, identical to the one named as such in Maxthon 3's installation.

Its main specialty consists of a clean User Interface (which can be greatly customized by skins). Webkit is set as default, but you can switch to Trident engine on-the-fly.
