The review further notes: “Maxthon manages to beat out Apple’s own Web browser by a slim margin in uncached page loads.”
“Adding performance within the technology limits set by Apple is not an easy thing,” said Jeff Chen, CEO of Maxthon. “But even with the limitation required by Apple for a company like us to access iTunes, Maxthon for iOS still loads pages as fast and faster than Safari. It’s an honor to be able to enhance the iPhone and iPad’s already excellent user experience with our approach to high performance web browsers.”

Known to hardcore technology enthusiasts since the early days of the web, Tom’s Hardware is an independent technology publication focused on providing reviews, analyses and recommendations. In its comprehensive review, it also gave Maxthon for iPad and iPhone kudos for its strong support of HTML5 and web standards’ compliance.

“iPhone and iPad users have a number of alternatives to Safari that provide noticeable improvements in performance and feature sets,’” said Karl Mattson, GM of Maxthon International/Chief of Product Development. “Upgrading to Maxthon is easy. Search Maxthon in iTunes and put on that seatbelt for some faster surfing.”
