    With the "cloud browser" tagline I doubt many will be interested.

    You don't have to activate cloud. But yeah, you got the point it does give a bad name. But I think enough people in here are smart enough to look past that.
    Still the browser is closed source. And I also tried installing it in Debian and it failed. Something about missing libc6.

    Has anyone got this thing installed on Linux?

    I just installed it on Arch Linux.

    Also I noticed that Maxthon for Linux is another Chromium clone? Was kinda hoping for a more unique browser.

    what's the advantage of using this browser, as compared to FF and chrome?

    I have not yet tried the Linux version, but the Windows version is the fastest browser that I've used. It also feels extremely light. I, unlike others apparently, really like the cloud features. My bookmarks are synced across all my devices. (I guess Chrome does that as well, though.)
