Maxthon Cloud Browser Floats to Windows Phone Platform

A mobile platform hat trick

With today's addition of the Windows Phone platform, you can now download and install the Maxthon Cloud Browser (MCB) to devices based on any of the top three mobile operating systems (Android and iOS being the other two). It's designed to make navigating the web from multi-devices a little easier, and one way it does that is by syncing your favorites online so that they're accessible to other devices using MCB.

It also sports a patent-pending implementation of tabs, whereby Windows Phone users can swipe up and down to go forward and backward in browsing history, a feature no other Windows Phone browser offers, Maxthon claims.

Other features include Favorites optimized for mobile touchscreens, Quick Access live tiles, and a pop-up address bar that appears via a simple gesture.

"With mobile devices becoming the first screen for most of the world's population, we here at Maxthon understood the importance of making our leading cloud browser available on all mobile platforms," said Jeff Chen, CEO of Maxthon. "We listened to our users and developed a Windows Phone browser with unmatched features and usability to bring the best browsing experience to all Windows Phone users."

You can download Maxthon Cloud Browser for free from the Windows Phone Store.
