Hi Guys!

Thank you for your kind words! Cats-4_Owners-2!

Problems with Maxthon Browser on Windows 8.1 Pro! Only way that I could get Maxthon Browser run is Right Click and Run as Administration.
maxthon works fine on my Windows 8.1

Always being a Chrome user, I gave FF a try some months ago. I used it for a while, good browser indeed, but then because of my personal preference I went back to Chrome. One of the reason was that some security/privacy extensions I use are/were not available for FF: Zenmate, HTTP SB, Mitro, etc.

I liked maxthon a lot but unfortunately due to some weird behavior of the crappy McAfee AV I could not use it, it got blocked by real-time protection...I could by pass this problem simply stopping real time protection, launching Maxthon and the re-enablig it.
But it was too much hassle. I gave up.

If you are using Chrome ? You cannot talk about PRİVACY !!

I have been using Dragon for a while but because of some issue with extensions that were not updating, I reverted to Chrome.
I still believe that Chrome with some proper settings is not -privacywise- different from others.

in Comodo Dragon 31 this problem is solved. You can check again ?

Best privacy is off-line computer :D We have alternative browsers that offer more privacy than Chrome : Iron, Dragon etc.
Exactly.. If you want complete privacy, the only way to achieve that is, to unplug your computer..
I view going online much like leaving your house and going into public, one can not expect privacy doing either one.

My browsers are as of today! On Windows 8.1 Pro and 1 Windows XP

I may try Maxthon Brower sometime today! I am wondering about it blocking abilities of Malware?
Just not sure of Maxthon!

if you expect your browser to block malwares, you failed already.

Browsers are made for browsing, nothing else; all the nice innovative protections you heard in so-called secured browsers are crap just to please "average joe" giving them the feeling they are safe wherever they browse so companies get better marketshares = more advertisement = more cash

don't be fooled, give "happy clicker Joe" the best secured browser , he will still be infected.

safe browsing do never come from the tools but how you use the tool

thanks

Web Browsers were made for browsing. However, Modern Browsers today are multi-capable pieces of software. You can drag-n-drop files to upload, record videos straight from the webpage, chat in real-time, connect with social media with live notifications, sync browser data, and a ton of more stuff.

So in certain way, we should expect major Web Browser companies to provide some levels of protection from the world-wide web. Google's SafeBrowsing protects users from suspected malicious sites, and now Chrome can block malicious downloads. Firefox disables out-dated / vulnerable plugins (ie. java) and IE's SmartScreen protects users from malicious sites / downloads, or suspiciously new applications.

Just to mention, I am sceptical about ABP and others using Malware Domains filters, and agree with you about the well-marketed secure browsers.

if you expect your browser to block malwares, you failed already.

nope sorry, the closed-beta's tester applications are closed now; most of us were selected during the first beta of WSA.
