Maxthon browser

Maxthon, a browser made by a tiny Beijing company of the same name, has attracted millions of users in China for functionality that can funnel traffic through a Web proxy and circumvent government controls on information in search engines like Google, Yahoo, MSN and Baidu.com.

Tabbed browsing

Maxthon's browser is highly customizable with hundreds of "skins" and includes tabbed browsing, baked-in RSS detection and readers, and remote-file access in partnership with software company Avvenu.

Parallel browsing

This summer, Maxthon will release a new version, Maxthon 2.0, that will include parallel browsing, similar to the picture-in-picture feature on TVs, in which surfers can browse several sites in parallel.
