Maxthon Expands its Suite of High Performance Web Browsers to Linux

New Version Brings Maxthon's Speed, Out-of-the-Box Features and Cloud Portability to World's Largest Open Source OS

SAN FRANCISCO, March 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Maxthon, a global software company that develops state-of-the-art web browsers, today announced the inaugural release of Maxthon for Linux. Maxthon brings its high performance and seamless browsing to Linux, ensuring faster speed, improved performance and an overall out-of-the-box browsing experience. Running on an optimized WebKit core made faster by Maxthon's in-house WebKit R&D team, Maxthon for Linux features superior page rendering speeds and performance enhancements evident throughout the browsing experience.

"We're glad to now offer the best of Maxthon to the Linux community," said Jeff Chen, founder and CEO of Maxthon. "The kinds of people who use Linux: -- ahead of the curve, independent pioneers- are simpatico with Maxthon's core user base."

Maxthon for Linux stands apart from the minimalist, no-feature characteristics common to most major browsers with unique features including:

  • Magic Fill: An AES 256 level encrypted password and user account prompt
  • Personalized Quick Access: Set and arrange a 'speed dial' of the most-commonly-visited websites
  • Maxthon Passport Account: A free service that allows users to encrypt and share Favorites, Quick Access and Magic Fill Data across different devices using Maxthon
  • Mouse Gestures: Execute common browser commands like 'forward, back and reload' by 'drawing' a gesture with the mouse
  • Easy Tab Management: Right and left click close and reload last tabs visited
  • 'Restore Last' button: One click and the browser will restore and reload the most recent session
  • Extensions: Native support for extensions, including full interoperability with Chrome Extensions

All of these features come with an elegant design that evokes and follows the design and usability conventions from other Maxthon browsers on other platforms.

"The addition of Linux takes our core value proposition - high performance, independent, multi-platform browsing - one step further," said Karl Mattson, VP of Maxthon's International Division. "Desktop computing is evolving beyond the one-OS-to-rule-them-all dynamic and as that develops, Maxthon will be right there offering high performance alternative web browsers on the platforms that matter."

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Digital Transformation: Preparing Cloud & IoT Security for the Age of Artificial Intelligence. As automation and artificial intelligence (AI) power solution development and delivery, many businesses need to build backend cloud capabilities. Well-poised organizations, marketing smart devices with AI and BlockChain capabilities prepare to refine compliance and regulatory capabilities in 2018. Volumes of health, financial, technical and privacy data, along with tightening compliance requirements by...
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
