I never had the pleasure to work with it until today, when I’ve installed the new development version under my Arch Linux box.

These days, the popular Chinese web browser is called Maxthon Cloud Browser and it is based on the open source Chromium web browser, supports all the extensions from the Google Chrome Store, and it provides a unified user interface across all supported platforms, including Android, iOS, Windows, Mac, and Windows Phone.

Maxthon Cloud Browser for Linux is not yet an official release, as it’s still in development, and it resides on the official Maxthon forums for the moment, where users can grab the latest Beta versions.
