    Janurmas,

    Maxthon is a browser which was advertised on this site 2 years ago and at that time,was compatible with Google TV.

    It doesn't have quite the same look as Google,Firefox,etc. It's somewhat abbreviated.

    Right now,it's incompatible with Google TV which means one can't download it as a working browser nor update one's previous versions.

    I have an earlier version of Maxthon as one of my apps.

    Maxthon is a china based free web browser for windows, maxthon provide unique features as the chrome provide. It is far more better than the IE in terms of GUI, browsing experience, high security.

    I read it has its own built in flash and it alluded to being different than the version of flash that comes with gtv boxes. Could this end the blockage of hulu, etc? Could this browser also end problems with closing popus when trying to watch flash (sports, etc) videos?

    Not with the current operating system but I don't know what will be possible with the update to Android 4.2.2. My best guess is the answer will still be there is no way to change Google TV to a browser that Hulu won't block. Also, a different version of Adobe Flash won't work on Google TV now or at any time in the past.

    You think with the new update whenever it comes -- will come with new flash player it not? You can go to adobe site and try to update to a new version but rt now its not doing anything.

    It has already been stated, the new browser will not include Adobe Flash and as far as I know, it is unknown if any workarounds to enable Adobe Flash with the new Google TV operating system will be possible.
