Innovative Browser Maxthon Among Top Products Chosen from 6,000

May 20, 2009

SAN FRANCISCO, May 20 /PRNewswire-Asia/ — For the second year in a row
Maxthon — an Internet browser that has emerged from China to play a major
role in global Internet communications — is a top winner in the Webware 100
competition.

Editors at Cnet’s Webware.com evaluated 6,000 web sites, services and
applications nominated by Internet users. From the 6,000 nominees, Webware’s
editors selected 300 finalists. Earlier this year, the public began casting
their votes for the best 100 products, 10 each in 10 categories.

The competition does not release the vote counts for individual winners,
but Webware.com Editor Rafe Needleman said that Maxthon was among the top
three vote-getters from all categories.

In 2008, Maxthon was the No. 1 overall vote-getter among the Webware 100
winners. Of the nearly two million votes cast, Maxthon received a fourth of
them, far more than any other browser-or other software-that was among the
nominees.

Jeff Chen, CEO of Maxthon, said, “We’re excited to get this award because
it recognizes that Maxthon has been a leader in introducing new features that
make browsing easier, faster, and more secure. We’re also pleased that so many
people voted for Maxthon. The number of people all over the world using
Maxthon is growing, mostly because of word-of-mouth because it’s simply a
better browser.”

This year Maxthon passed the 200 million mark for the number of people who
have downloaded Maxthon.

In the Browsing category, other winners included Diigo, Firefox, Flock,
Google Chrome, iGoogle, Internet Explorer 8, Opera. Safari, and XMarks.
