SAN FRANCISCO, (April 20, 2011) — The latest release of the browser Maxthon 3, announced today, makes the Windows browser easier to use and more versatile by improving on many of the long-time favorite features of Maxthon users.

“The most powerful, easy-to-use speed-demon of a browser just took another step ahead and away from its competition,” said maxthon CEO Jeff Chen. “We wanted to take a fresh look at some community favorites, especially URL aliases,” Chen finished, smiling.

Among the new-again features in Maxthon are improved versions of:

  • URL Alias: The user can assign a simpleā€“to-type alias, such as “lovecats” to replace a long URL name prone to typos, such as “”
  • URL Hot-keys: User may also assign URLs to hot keys so that surfing to “” is no harder that typing Ctrl+P.
  • Resource Sniffer: Originally designed to sniff out the real filenames behind YouTube videos so they could be downloaded directly, the improved Resource Sniffers now includes videos, music, and images, setting them up for downloading from the current page onscreen or from all the pages in a site.
  • Compact Mode and Multi-column Display for Favorites Bar: Users with more favorites that can clearly be displayed in a simple drop-down list will appreciate Maxthon’s ability to condense the display of favorites or to wrap favorites into several columns.

The newest version of Maxthon 3 also adds: new skins, support for 3rd-party downloaders, the ability to choose what tool bars to display, and improved import and export capabilities, including the ability to handle guest users’ data in a separate cookie environment.
