Maxthon Browser


Recommended Posts

Good morning to all. I am new here and I have a question about browsers. I recently installed the Maxthon 5 browser on my desktop because I'm having trouble finding a browser that works on my antiquated XP OS.  When running Ccleaner free version, it shows Chrome, IE, and Firefox browsers but not Maxthon. Is that because it sees Maxthon as Chrome or Firefox? Thanks!

ccleaner cleans browsers in their parent browser but I don't remember if maxthon is child of chrome or firefox (I think it used to be based on ie but don't know now what it is or if it's already cleaned by ccleaner).

 

ADVICE FOR USING CCleaner'S REGISTRY INTEGRITY SECTION

DON'T JUST CLEAN EVERYTHING THAT'S CHECKED OFF.

Do your Registry Cleaning in small bits (at the very least Check-mark by Check-mark)

ALWAYS BACKUP THE ENTRY, YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT YOU'LL BREAK IF YOU DON'T.

It's Chinese so may be it's own thing and not Chrome/Firefox based?

Winapp2 might include cleaming rules for it but I don't know for sure?

Worried about 'Tracking Files'? Worried about why some files come back after cleaning? See this link:

I know it used to be IE based way back when I tried in on WinXP, so when CCleaner would clean Internet Explorer it would also be cleaning Maxthon (Cookies, Temporary Internet Files, etc).

It might be "safer" to use the last WinXP compatible version of Firefox.

yes, myie2 - i used it too at that time with w98 and ie5/ie6, because it gives the tab-function to "myie-internet-explorer" that the ie dont give.

 

mx5 seems to  use the chromium core 61
