MXNitro page loading time bubbles



  • It might be nice to copy what the brand new Version:1.0.1.3000 of MXNitro is now doing. When you load a page a quick bubble fades in and out telling you how long it took to load certain pages.



  • Maxthon Browser is realy fast and looks like Viva.. !!!_? hehe

    Now, before I explain how much Maxthon (Nitro or Cloud) and Vivaldi are very different in looks and function, I have to ask: is "Viva.." you sarcastically cutting off "Vivaldi" in order to insult Nitro? Because that's what it looks like to me - but I'd rather not begin listing the various reasons why Maxthon Nitro and Vivaldi are very fundamentally different unless you were actually comparing the two.

    I only saw those bubbles two or three times when I first updated from version 1.0.1.2000 - they were pretty cool, but they've stopped popping up in the weeks since then. One thing that Nitro does that is rather helpful is the preview of Google search results. That's something I would actually like to see in more browsers.



  • Well, Spartan is also going to be a good clone of some of Vivaldi and/or Opium features and aesthetic.

    It has even the settings for the keyboard navigation.



  • I'm really looking forward to the release of Spartan, it looks like it will be a fairly useful browser. But compared to Chrome and its clones, I suppose that's not really saying much.

    For my money, Spartan will be a "fairly useful" browser if it has integrated email you can see at the same time as your bookmarks, web content and tabs, vertical tabs, and vertical bookmarks bar. Absent these, it will be just another browser - and probably no better than Opera. So far, everything else announced as "features" strikes me as clutter. I remain unconvinced.



  • I'm not saying it will take precedence over Vivaldi for me, I'm just comparing it to other mainstream browsers like Firefox, Opera (28), and Google Chrome. When I say a browser is fairly useful, I generally mean that I would prefer it over Chrome - but then, I have a huge bias against Chrome and Google in general, so take that with a grain of salt.

    Vivaldi, though, looks like it will be my default browser probably permanently now that I've imported all of my bookmarks from Maxthon Cloud Browser and Opera (Presto).

    Edit:

    Just for clarity's sake, here's how I see browsers currently:

    1. Opera was the best choice until the developers changed their direction and turned it into a replica of Chrome.

    2. Firefox has amazing customization options, and with several extensions installed, it can be a fair replacement for Opera pre-Chromium.

    3. Maxthon Cloud comes packaged with some of the features from Opera Presto that I used most often, and I've used it almost since Presto was discontinued. It would be my replacement for Vivaldi if Vivaldi were to fail in this endeavor.

    4. Sleipnir and Yandex could be changing the way browsers design their UI, and I personally really like the Sleipnir interface. It's just a shame that its current stable build has about as many features as Chrome.

    5. In no particular order: Polarity, Tungsten, SeaMonkey, QupZilla, Torch, and Lunascape are fun to play around with - but I don't see any of them becoming really well known brands.

    6. Spartan looks like it could give some Chrome users a new home, maybe knock Google down a peg and earn back some reputation for Microsoft. I'd be more than okay with that.

    7. Vivaldi is continuing the legacy of Opera, and I will support it as much as I did Opera pre-Chromium.

    8 ) Every other browser that exists (that I've heard of and used) is either a Chrome clone or a Firefox clone.
