2.0 out of 5 stars Won't play Youtube videos March 22, 2012
Verified Purchase
April 1, 2012: Update to my prior review below re. problem with playing mobile YouTube. The Maxthon browser has undergone a couple of iterations since I first installed it on my Kindle Fire January. Conclusions as of now:
- The first Android version I installed worked the best. Was as good or better than the Silk browser in every way;
- The next update (late Feb/early March) or the Maxthon "for the Kindle Fire" would not play a video off the mobile YouTube site. Instead it would close out mobile Youtube whenever you tried to play a video.
- The latest update made available yesterday I think is an improvement & is still a faster browser than Silk. However there are still 2 areas where Silk is better:
1)Mobile Youtube: Maxthon will now play mobile Youtube videos full screen on the Kindle Fire built-in flash player but they are of poor, pixelated quality while Silk will play them beautifully full screen on one-click using the built in the flash player;
2) Maxthon will display some but not all mobile versions of websites. Even when you enter the mobile URL it will revert to the "desktop" version of the website. Examples: CNBC mobile, MSNBC mobile
- Bottom line: The best Maxthon for Kindle unfortunately was the original Android version. Use Maxthon for most web browsing on the Kindle Fire, but rely on Silk for it's far superior playing of mobile Youtube videos, & if desired some mobile versions of websites.

"After being dissatisfied with the speed of the Silk browser for my Kindle Fire, the Maxthon browser had the features I was looking for, faster, more reliable, & better interface for keeping track of Favorites, etc. However, after it was updated in March, it will no longer play videos from the mobile version of YouTube. Everytime I go to play a YouTube video, it closes out the YouTube site. This is unacceptable to me & if its not fixed soon, I will be uninstalling."

5.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly Fast February 5, 2012
Verified Purchase
This FREE app solves one of my few complaints with the Kindle Fire. I had never heard of the Maxthon browser and was happily surprised to find some other browser offered by the restrictive Amazon app store for kindle. There are some minor issues with the operation of the Maxthon browser, but the speed vs the stock silk browser deserves a 5 star rating.

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly recommended, a must have! January 24, 2012
By Dnguyen

The options this browser provides trumps default browser by far. Add ons provide more customization, most notably gestures. Overall, maxthon loads much faster than default, is more stable, and highly appealing. App is a must have for those who want a faster, cleaner, and more personalized experience. Excellent job on developer's part.

I left Firefox because it got bloated and slow. Then I tolerated the slow speed and quirks of Opera, but appreciated its sync-ability between Windows desktop and Android mobile. Then Opera stopped syncing and I went looking for an alternative. Maxthon allows sufficient syncing between Windows desktop and Android tablet to meet my needs. [Since writing this, I've discovered that Maxthon's Android reads Maxthon Win7 desktop changes, but does not write changes that sync back to the desktop - it's a one way street right now. Maxthon promptly responded to an email query and said that full Android cloud sync should be forthcoming soon. I still think it's the best browser available.] It's far faster on the Win7 desktop than any other browser, and snaps into action in Android. I like it better than Dolphin on Android which has no Windows counterpart. With Firefox and Chrome targeted to newer ICS versions of Android, Maxthon emerged as an option. I'm still exploring and finding new things, but it's fairly intuitive so that you should find what you really need pretty quickly. Then you can discover the other ways this browser can help you. I think it's a well kept secret, so don't tell anyone lest they ruin the product by piling on a whole load of useless crap. Oh, one minor annoyance is the need to sign in each time you open the browser. Otherwise, I can't think of - have not found in several weeks of use - any noteworthy complaint.

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent alternative April 26, 2012
Verified Purchase
I adore this browser. like many others I ran into the bugs of the silk browser and the reception I got re the bugs and how to manage them had me thinking..... silk felt like a ship that is going down. do I run around sticking gum in the holes or do I abandon ship. and here comes Max. This works more like what I expected. Love the gesture ability (n for new tab c for close etc). Its a more effective fix. Very grateful for this alternative. And its avail in the appstore so it just slides into place.

At this price point it really doesn't hurt to try it

5.0 out of 5 stars Great app March 20, 2012
By Tim
Verified Purchase
Works ten times better than Amazon's browser on the kindle fire. Reliable, fast, allows you to view content in WAP mode, which is basically a faster way to load images and pictures. The interface is neat and clean and their customer service department is actually really well. I wrote them suggesting some features and they got back to me the next day. This is a great browser for the kindle fire, no ads, quick load times, and best of all, free.

5.0 out of 5 stars Clean and Easy December 1, 2013
By Maudy

I was getting kind of aggravated with the dragginess of my Kindle Fire 1st edition so I cracked and decided to upgrade. But first...I tried a suggestion from a User on Amazon and downloaded Maxthon. Ohhhhh that's what I needed! So much faster. Easy to get to what I want without the hanging....hanging...hanging. So glad I was desperately annoyed! 'Cause now I once again love my Fire!

kindle fire hd 8.9
Same problem with my 8.9 Kindle. Was wondering if the fact that it has AT n T 4g lite that was making the problem. I do not have an AT T account. I really would like to ditch silk.
