Bored of the same old features offered by your built-in Chrome browser? Want a more robust app to browse the World Wide Web? Looking for a change in the look and feel of the most used app on your phone? Maxthon5 Browser is a great alternative to your regular Android browser apps. It has a great number of features and all of them certainly help in improving your browsing experience. With a simple look and feel and great control over how you view websites on your phone, there is a lot to like about the browser app.
Maxthon5 Browser keeps it simple as far as the design of the app is concerned. It has a very clean interface and you can get started with browsing right away. The top of the app is dedicated to typing in the domain names of websites you want to browse. The middle of the main page allows you to add quick links to your favorite websites so that you can access them at the comfort of just one click. There are two displays here. You can switch to a tabbed version as well where top news from websites would be displayed. The bottom of the screen is dedicated to accessing the phenomenal number of features the app has to offer.
When you would touch the button at the bottom right of the screen, it would open a list of quick features you want to access. The 'Private' option leads to an incognito session so that no history is kept and no searches are saved. The 'bright screen' option increases the brightness of the screen while you are using the app while not touching the original brightness settings of the phone when you are not using this android browser app. The 'Night' option dims the brightness similarly so that anyone else around you who might be sleeping isn't disturbed by your phone's brightness. The 'View Mode' option lets you browse the websites in Android view, iPad view and Desktop view – whichever you like. Moreover, there is also an 'Images Off' option if you are low on mobile data and want to read the text but don't want the phone to load any images. There is also a 'Page Search' option so that you can search for a given word on the website that you have opened.
The app also has a great 'Cloud' option where you can save your settings on Cloud and then download them to any device. You can also share your settings etc. with your friends on the go as well. This option is accessible through the arrow present on the top left of the screen.
