Maxthon has accomplished what no other browser has in China: It has found a way around the Chinese government's controls on what information is available through sites and search engines like Google, Yahoo, MSN and Baidu.com. That's why Maxthon has quickly become China's second most popular browser after Internet Explorer, with 98 million downloads so far.
