SAN FRANCISCO, April 1, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Maxthon, a global software company that develops state-of-the-art web browsers, announced today that it placed first in About.com's 2014 Readers' Choice Awards in three categories: Best Small Market Desktop Browser, Best Android Browser and Best iPad Browser. These first place honors come on the heels of the inaugural release of Maxthon for Linux.
Competing against some of the industry's major browsers including Chrome and Firefox, Maxthon once again took home the "Best Android Browser" award this year with an impressive 93 percent of the vote. Maxthon is also the reigning champion for its two other category wins with 86 percent of the vote for "Best iPad Browser" and 97 percent of the vote for the "Best Small Market Desktop Browser," which Maxthon has won for the last four years.
"Maxthon's continued success in About.com's Readers' Choice Awards shows that users want more out of their browsers and are willing to search outside the default options to find what they're looking for," said Karl Mattson, VP of Maxthon's International Division. "With even larger margins of victory this year, we're thrilled to be meeting and exceeding the needs of our users and providing them with a seamless browsing experience on all platforms."
As Maxthon continues to expand onto new platforms and into new markets, its focus remains on delivering cutting-edge innovations that meet the demands of a changing Internet landscape. The company recently announced the inaugural release of Maxthon for Linux and also expanded its partnership with leading search and web services provider, Yandex, to offer Maxthon web browsers to desktop and mobile users in Russia.
