Chinese browser released for iPhone
Move over, Opera and Google. A new browser is being offered for users of Apple's popular iPhone, and it's made in China.
The Maxthon browser comes as a free app for the iPhone and follows recent releases for Apple's Mac and iPad, tech site The Next Web reported.
"Nothing innovative to see here, but existing users will be pleased with the ability to sync across most popular platforms," The Next Web said.
While the new browser does not appear to offer anything "truly novel," The Next Web said it offers cloud-syncing abilities for bookmarks and favorites.
Such syncing works across Mac OS, iOS, PC, Android, Kindle Fire and BlackBerry devices, it added.
Other features include private browsing, a "reader mode" and tabbed browsing.
The iPhone app is "super fast and free of charge" and worth a whirl, The Next Web said.
The Next Web also quoted Maxthon as saying its browser products have been downloaded over 600 million times.
Yet, it said Maxthon may have to compete for iPhone users' attention with other browsers from Opera Mini, Google Chrome, Mercury, Skyfire, Sleipnir, Atomic, Mango, and Puffin. — RSJ, GMA News
