Requests for Bonjour support: ignored.
Requests for a setting to turn off history for security's sake: ignored.
Requests for access to all AIM functions such as audio messaging, video messaging and file transfer: ignored.
But they sure do work hard on keeping the ICQ protocols up to date.

Those "tiny little features" were the only reasons to use Maxthon rather than Fiirefox, Chrome or even IE.
18.104.22.1680 (Mar 28, 2013)
Just a complete mess at this point. Maxthon is possibly the only software which downgrades (removing features) for every update rather than progressing. Version 4 is worse than Version 3 was, which in turn was considerably less functional than Version 2.

ZoneAlarm has become absurdly bloated over the last few years. What used to be the first choice for Windows users in need of a simple, fast software firewall will now slow your PC down to a virtual standstill.
At the same time, they've actually removed features rather than added them. In recent builds the Network Lock and network traffic system tray icon were buggy, so the devs announced that instead of fixing the functions, they would REMOVE them altogether. When ZA users in their support forum complained about this, the thread was locked with a terse message that "no further discussion on this matter will be allowed."
Almost any other firewall choice is better than the mess that ZoneAlarm has become.

According to the Maxthon forum this is the final release of version 3. In other words, like version 2, it's been abandoned by its developers while still in an unfinished, bug-ridden state. Absolutely ridiculous.
Supposedly we're going to hear news about Maxthon 4 soon. Some beta testers in their forum are already showing 4.x version numbers in their profiles. But based on the history of this browser, you have to wonder if version 4 will even be worth trying out at all.
