Maxthon has released a Linux version of its Cloud Browser today. It has a significant user base on other platforms but the Linux version was elusive till they announced a Beta sometime back. Now it’s here with some interesting features for Linux:
- Sync Magic Fill data of your Maxthon Account.
- Last Session page, which can be set to open with browser in Settings.
- Hover to switch between folders on Favorites Bar.
- Brand new UI.
However, it is also a bulky browser just like Google Chrome. The x86_84 installation is 182MB in size and spawns many processes. When I ran it on LXDE the title bar took a lot of space.
Mathon uses the WebKit engine. The binaries are released for x86 and x86_64 in deb, rmp and tar.gz format. The tar.gz format allows you to run it on any Linux box.
