That’s a little bit surprising considering the 300+ mill ion downloads the download counter over at the Maxthon website is displaying.

A preview version of Maxthon 3 was released by its developers which gives an outlook of things to come. Probably the two most important changes are the change of the rendering engine from Trident to Webkit and the new design that looks similar to the latest version of the Opera browser.
