Does the maxthon browser work on google tv or do they just advertise here?
Please see new thread on "Free Browsers for Google TV?". It talks about Maxthon. (Basically,it works!)
I downloaded the Maxthon TV Browser's APK (http://mobile.maxthon.cn/download/android/tv/mxbrowser_tv.apk) and installed it. It works but not very well. The default Chrome browser is still better in my opinion. The Maxthon browser seems to be optimized for Android TV not Google TV. Flash objects of various webpages will not load because it depends on the Flash software meant for Android Phones and Tablets.
There are a few features that are nice. Their User Agent has the iPhone and iPad strings built-in. It has the ability to toggle java script, loading pictures, and popups. The URL/Seach bar or status bar doesn't popup like in the new version of Chrome. Though, I am a little disappointed in not being able to customize the homepage. I think this browser has potential and I may even reinstall it at a later time.
