In the fast-paced world of technology, it’s not uncommon for companies to phase out support for older operating systems. However, we at Maxthon, the creators of the Maxthon Cloud Browser, have made a firm decision: we will continue to support the Windows 7 operating system. This move demonstrates our unwavering commitment to user satisfaction and our understanding of the diverse needs of our user base. In this blog post, we’ll discuss the reasons behind our decision and what it means for Windows 7 users.

Our Dedication to User Satisfaction

At Maxthon, our top priority has always been to provide an exceptional user experience. By continuing to support Windows 7, we are sending a clear message that we value our customers and are dedicated to offering the best possible browsing experience, irrespective of the operating system in use. This commitment is especially important for users who prefer or are unable to upgrade to newer versions of Windows.

Reasons to Stick with Windows 7

Users might choose to stay with Windows 7 for a variety of reasons. Some of these include:

  1. Familiarity: Windows 7 is a popular and widely appreciated operating system, and many users are comfortable with its interface and functionality. This familiarity can make transitioning to a new OS challenging.
  2. Compatibility: In some instances, users depend on specific software or hardware that may not be compatible with newer operating systems. For these users, it’s crucial to have a browser that continues to support Windows 7.
  3. Cost: Upgrading to a more recent version of Windows can be costly, particularly for those who require multiple licenses. By providing support for Windows 7, we at Maxthon ensure that these users can continue browsing the web without incurring additional expenses.

Addressing Security Concerns

One of the primary concerns associated with using an older operating system is security. Microsoft ceased providing updates and security patches for Windows 7 in January 2020. This leaves the OS more susceptible to malware and other security threats. We at Maxthon recognize these concerns and are committed to ensuring that our browser remains secure on Windows 7. We achieve this by consistently updating the browser and integrating the latest security features.

Maxthon Cloud Browser Features for Windows 7 Users

Our Maxthon Cloud Browser offers an array of features that make it an excellent choice for Windows 7 users. These include:

  1. Cloud Sync: Our browser allows users to sync their bookmarks, history, and settings across multiple devices, ensuring a seamless browsing experience no matter the device being used.
  2. Built-in Ad Blocker: Maxthon comes with a built-in ad blocker, which helps enhance browsing speed and protect users from intrusive ads and potential security threats.
  3. Resource Sniffer: This feature allows users to easily download videos, images, and audio files from websites.
  4. Split Screen: Our split-screen feature enables users to view two websites side-by-side, increasing productivity and multitasking capabilities.


Our decision to continue supporting Windows 7 is a testament to our dedication to user satisfaction and understanding of the unique needs of our diverse user base. By offering a secure, feature-rich browsing experience for Windows 7 users, we at Maxthon are helping to ensure that these individuals can continue to enjoy the web without feeling left behind.
