It's all very well buying software that's going to be of good use, but what get's me going, no sooner have you purchased it and a new version comes out although you don't have to pay the full price you still have to pay part of it for an upgrade...(Raw Deal)....

Think the interface and speed are the most pros for Maxthon.

For security I think it is the same like FF or Opera if you have installed the latest IE patches.
Thanks, it makes sense...

How do you compare Maxthon 2.0 to Firefox and IE...Speed,Security ect?...Any advice?...

Good to hear it...

I got the reg page & got a mail with as app says confusing directions\lack of same
and a link for the download which doesnt work today sofar,
AND it doesnt say if the download-link is good after today...

(says i get two attempts at downloading, be lucky if i get any at this rate :P )

The same happened to me so I did a search on Winrar 3.51...Downloaded the apps and put the reg in and it registered without any problems

OK...Many thanks for the Info Josh...

Whew! After soo long, Finally got it...

Can I post the link on another forum?

I find the way it still handles bookmarks a real PITA.Absolutely lame.
Bookmark management is a huge deal in a browser if you ask me.Just as important as tab browsing.

I pretty sure it turn something on called Ctfmon,didn't have it pop up in my process' before install is all i know. >:(
 There seems to be a slight increase of speed once the above settings are in operation...PS: Thanks

Btw if your getting the ctfmon process--

Go to Control Panel, “Region and Language Options”, select “Languages”, “Details”, “Advanced” tab and check the box next to “Turn off advanced text services.” That will remove ctfmon from startup. BTW after you select “Details” if you select “Language Bar” you can permanently get rid of that annoying Language Bar toolbar. Of course if you use the functions supported by the Language Bar and ctfmon then you are stuck with it running in the background.

I found that in another forum i can't find the source at the moment,but it worked for me and i logged it away
in a text file for future reference.

Many thanks for the tip...

I find that it's very slow slower than the standard I.E....What helped me a bit was In Explorer go to Tools-Internet Options-Advanced-Security-'Enable Empty Temporary Internet files folder when browser is closed' This helped me a little. Other than that I've had No Issues...

But agreed, FF is much faster and more reliable...

I've been trying for 5 hours now still no sign, I get as far as reg page and that's about it... : 8) The page just keeps trying to load...Should I leave it to do it's own thing?...Advice please...

Thanks...  I'll just have to keep trying

Is anyone else having problems with the registration page?...After filling it out it just sits there and does not change...

That sounds Great!...Many thanks!... :Thmbsup:

Congrats to all who won  ;D...Better luck next time for those who did'nt...

I think that this simplifies the whole issue and is easier to understand...and find that it's easier to manage...

It's been a while now since the last update - what incentive is there now for them when VirtualPC is free? Can't help feeling the desktop version may be made free and stop active development. Let's hope not.

Thanks for the info, I think maybe now it will be a stiff competition to see who'll bring out the best in VirtualPC...And of course the best support...Remembering that there are already  Group Discussions/Forums ect in place...i.e. (Free Advice/support)...
