Maxthon Does NOT support Linux

I've tried editing Maxthon's information to reflect this in the past, but someone else (judging by user activity, it looks like someone from Maxthon) has changed it back.

While you can still download a version of Maxthon for Linux, it is not being updated. Maxthon officially discontinued the Linux version, and a simple search on the Maxthon Community Forums would corroborate that. Here's a post from 2015, for example, where a Maxthon admin states, "The development of Maxthon for linux has stopped. There is no plan for new versions at the moment."

I think it's important Linux users are made aware that Maxthon for Linux is no longer receiving updates so that they can avoid the inherent security concerns that accompany using old software, and especially from using an old web browser.

You can download the most recent release of Maxthon for Linux from this thread on the forums.

Other than the lack of Linux support (and the apparent desire of Maxthon employees to prevent people from knowing Linux is no longer supported) Maxthon is a decent browser.

Blackberry?

This is not a Blackberry application at all. I don't know what the Blackberry tag is for.

Maxthon is available for Blackberry Playbook, that's why there's the Blackberry tag.
I added some screenshots and updated the description for a better explanation.
