Maxthon Portable Review

Tina de Pierre
Web browser that can switch between Webkit and Trident engines
A review of Maxthon Portable by Tina de Pierre

The Maxthon Portable browser is a free, dual-engine Internet browser that incorporates some of the best features from different browser engines, namely Trident and Webkit.

Since Maxthon Portable is, as the name suggests, a portable application, it can be run without installation where no changes to the Windows Registry will take place.

The layout of Maxthon is pretty much what you would expect of any modern web browser, though with a few different extra features added. It should be noted that it appears to be a little bit more colorful than Google Chrome.

Features here are numerous and include a feed reader, a left panel which includes favorites and notes, a download manager, an online notepad and some other, customizable features. Maxthon Portable also includes a synchronization and encryption utility.

As with virtually all newer browsers, Maxthon Portable supports private browser and a useful password manager to save accounts for auto-fill later on. It can also export and import user data so switching between machines is possible.

Finally, Maxthon also allows users to go back to earlier days of Internet browsing by activating Retro Mode (Ultra Mode is the current default).

Overall, Maxthon Portable is a capable and fast Internet browser which offers users the opportunity to stray away from the pack and try something different.
