San Francisco, CA, September 7, 2011 — Maxthon (, a global software and web services company, has cast a wider net in its mission to  empower users of Android tablets with Maxthon Mobile’s better browser. In this spirit of inclusion, Maxthon now invites Paul Krugman, columnist for the New York Times and winner of the 2008 Nobel Memorial Prize in Economics, to get the most out of his Samsung Galaxy Tablet by installing Maxthon Mobile.

In a recent blog posting, “Galaxy of Music (Personal Note),” Krugman mentions that the Galaxy is “isn’t so great for browsing.” The post is available at

“You don’t have to win a Nobel Prize to come to the same conclusion as Paul Krugman: the out-of-the-box browser that comes with most Android tablets doesn’t do the hardware justice. Fortunately an easy solution exists: Maxthon Mobile,” says Jeff Chen, CEO of Maxthon. “Paul, try Maxthon Mobile for Tablets for great browsing and watching videos on the web. “

With the latest version of Maxthon Mobile users also get:

  • Expanded, more powerful HTML5 support for an excellent video viewing experience.
  • Flash On-Demand, which allows users to easily switch Flash on or off for faster page loads.
  • An easy screen grab utility. Web Snapshot enables tablet users to grab and save part or an entire web page.
  • Favorites Backup. Now Maxthon Mobile not only syncs your favorites to the cloud but also makes it easy to back them up on your device’s SD card.
  • A smart Task Killer, which conveniently stops unnecessary background processes that consume memory, CPU power and bandwidth.


“Krugman’s blog underscores the necessity of having the right browser for your Android tablet or phone. Without Maxthon Mobile, the web is either incomplete or inaccessible,” says Karl Mattson, GM of Maxthon International/Chief of Product Development. “On that point even Senator Alan Simpson and Paul Krugman would agree.”
