    OK, those awfully clever chaps at Maxthon have released two current final versions of their browser: Maxthon Browser for Windows V4.9.1.1000 and Maxthon Browser for Windows V4.4.8.2000. :cool:

    There’s absolutely nothing confusing about having two concomitant releases. Absolutely nothing. :confused:

    I mean, only an idiot would download V4.9.1.1000 when it was released about ten days before V4.4.8.2000 was released thinking it was the Maxthon browser update from V4.4.8.1000, wouldn’t they? o_O

    As far as I can see, bearing in mind I’m an idiot lol, V4.9.1.1000 is basically a beta for V5. As I said before; nothing, absolutely nothing to be confused about. :rolleyes:

    V4.9.1.1000 isn’t bad really, considering the ugly Chrome-like font rendering and the fact it won’t stream some TV channels. It will probably be great when its finished. :gack:

    Meanwhile, I’ll stay with V4.4.8.2000 for now. ;)

    Either way, for the first time in five years, Maxthon isn’t my default browser anymore. :geek:

    Maxthon still rocks though! :thumb:

    I installed Maxthon 5 yesterday but that only lasted about 10 minutes. I did not like it at all so uninstalled it and will stay with 4.9 until the end of time.
