Maxthon Cloud Browser : Private?

by robb7thurston / April 19, 2013 9:54 AM PDT

My concern: Maxthon Cloud Browser, the latest rendition of Maxthon: privacy. <<>>.
As often as not, when an item is "cloud", it often means that the OEM is recording some aspect of the item. Question: Is Maxthon Cloud Browser completely private, or is it subjected to being taped like Google Chrome Browser? No, I am not concerned with economic reasons why a well engineered application is offered which records user preferences. My only concern remains: Is Maxthon Cloud totally private if it is correctly configured? Or: does the OEM record its actions?
Please advise.

Sadly it's been discussed a little and spammed too much.

avoid Maxthon Cloud.

I am obliged for the short and precise advice:stay away." I interpret this to mean not to use the Maxthon Cloud browser, and I take responsibility for saying this. Your advice is clear.
It also confirms my horse sense that cloud is EVIL to small persons, as presented by Woz.
Very warmest regards for your advisory to avoid Maxthon Cloud.
A sincere friend!
