Maxthon Beta / (Chromium)

7 is a state-of-the-art, multi-platform, first Bitcoin-powered web browser. It regularly outperforms other top browsers and offers users a seamless browsing and sharing experience.

Maxthon 6 is a new browser designed and developed by Maxthon USA Inc, which chooses 
Chromium as the new kernel. MX6 is a different product line from Maxthon 5. It is not an upgrade of MX5 and will operate independently.

Maxthon Browser is a 20-year-old veteran browser. In the early days of the Internet, it continued to innovate to improve the user experience and created several popular features, such as.

  • Multi-tab – how many people still remember the fear of desktop being filled with web pages
  • Gestures – create efficiency and comfort in the jamming of older mice with long tails
  • Resource Sniffer – how many engineers are relying on this function to explore the way of website development in the early time
  • Bookmarks sync- Bookmarks no longer need to be copied with a U disk

As time goes by, the Maxthon browser has been making great progress. In the past 20 years, there are five major versions and tens of thousands of minor versions, paving the way for the Maxthon browser from the 1970s to the 2000s span several generations of user groups.


As a browser brand that lasts for 20 years, MX6 not only inherits the features that users liked in previous versions, but also your personal data, such as bookmarks, notes, and passwords can be directly imported from the historical version into the new browser through Maxthon account to achieve seamless connection.


For the upcoming era of technology explosion, MX6 chose the Chromium open-source kernel as the foundation. On one hand, relying on Chromium's strong technical background and iterative speed, it builds a more secure, faster, and stable platform for all Maxthon users. On the other hand, it provides a more powerful compatible platform for the new generation of web applications through the Chrome add-ons library.


Maxthon 6 provides a convenient entrance for users to integrate into new technology, without losing inheritance and compatibility. In the latest version, MX6 will separately develop a blockchain module to provide technical support for the popularity of blockchain applications.

Better performance, faster response

Compared with the MX5 browser, MX6 is much faster. Especially opening multiple tabs, its loading capacity and less RAM usage are more prominent. Let’s look at feedback from test groups.

Smooth data import, good browser inheritance

Maxthon 6 is a different product line from MX5. The data of Maxthon 5 and Maxthon 6 cannot be synced, but MX6 can synchronize your data through the cloud.

In MX6, you can synchronize your data from the local database to the cloud. If your Maxthon account has used and retained data in previous versions of Maxthon, these data will be automatically synced to your MX6 when syncing the data for the first time. After that, if you want to use both browsers, the data will not be synced but will be synchronized separately under their product lines.

Of course, if you want to import MX5 data into MX6 in stages, you can also use the Import/Export user data function. MX6 team may provide a more convenient function to meet users’ needs in different scenarios.

Separate Bookmarks and Maxnote

Maxnote in the Maxthon 5 browser has always been a controversial product. Some users think the Maxnote is easy to use; while some users who are used to the traditional favourites feel a bit uncomfortable.

To balance the two kinds of user experience, MX6 coexists with Bookmarks and Maxnote. If you like Maxnote, please continue to enjoy it. If you like traditional favourites, please use the “Bookmark” function. When you use MX6 for the first time, it will automatically import the URLs marked as favourites in Maxnote into Bookmarks.

User’s affirmation and expectation for Maxthon 6

Maxthon 6 chooses the Chromium open-source kernel as the foundation. The chromium kernel is famous for a series of features such as security, fluency, and stability. MX6 inherits these features and fully supports the Chrome add-ons library.
