Features
9.55/10

It has a tabbed interface and supports drag&drop to arrange them. Unfortunately, doesn't support drag&drop to drag sites from address bar to Bookmarks bar, but it has a small button to add a new Bookmark (Favorite) easily.

Creating an online account allows you to synchronize your Maxthon's settings across different devices and platforms, but also you can download files directly on the cloud (third party server).

Is generous regarding options and allows to customize default search engine, customize address bar, enable spell check and autofill.

A really cool mouse gesture section is customizable through options menu and you can control browser or perform different actions (open, close tabs etc.) with different mouse movements explained in that section. There are available different keyboard shortcuts to perform different actions using keyboard.

With one click you can reset Maxthon's settings to original state.
