Ahh yes maxthon, very cool and unique, but sadly died around v4 i think... :think:

Edit: looks like there was a chromium revival with v5 ?

the browser wars shows maxthon in the thumbnail (to the right of Opera) but it never makes the chart :( clickbait. I used that for years. it has an hours tracker, think I stopped around 15k

@joedf doesn't matter , I added google search example again

Certain keywords or keyphrases might trigger anti-spam measures.

Also chromium edge seems promising. I've been using firefox as my main since the days of netscape.
I use many browsers, they all have their merits but using straight chrome as a main, whether it's with the best of intentions or not ... may lead to another IE-fiasco.

@garry !!! I am SO SORRY! I GOOFED! I've never had this happen. I thought I was writing a post but was editing yours :? :?
I thought I clicked 'quote/reply" but I must have clicked edit by mistake. I tried to bring back what I could :(

@joedf
@SKAN
Thanks, will try EDGE

example with google search
depending language and country you get different result :
Google don't like when you send many parameters , if often send asks for CAPTCHA :
Our systems have detected unusual traffic from your computer network.
This page checks to see if it's really you sending the requests, and not a robot.
Why did this happen?

I've just moved to the newest version of EDGE in my 6yr old slower HTPC.
Its considerably faster than Chrome and seemingly uses less memory. I'm missing some of the useful chrome extensions, though.
uBlockOrigin is available and most of the websites I browse are unaware of it... Thats a plus.. at least for now.
I'm too addicted to Google search and should move out of it soon.

Mozilla has renewed its lucrative nine-figure deal with Google to ensure its search engine is the default in Firefox in the US and other parts of the world.

I understand why people use it, but ... Google Chrome's browser current domination isn't looking good for the "web"... for various reasons... :?

a documentary that dares to say what no one else will —
that we are losing the battle to stop climate change on planet earth because we are following leaders who have taken us down the wrong road —
selling out the green movement to wealthy interests and corporate America.

Let's talk about the politically correct Locusts: https://www.bbc.com/news/resources/idt-79cb45e7-42ce-4c06-8912-bd07d2c909be
I've saved one in our garden before mowing knee-deep grass. Looks this species will survive while we make ourselves extinct within the next 50+ years ...

How to view the locusts in 3D or Augmented Reality (AR)
