Build Your Own Browser with Maxthon
Posted April 28, 2012 at 08:00 am by Former Writer
Picking a favorite Android browser is much like picking a favorite sports team. Everyone has a favorite they brag about and will defend to the death. With browsers having different features and the fact that everyone needs something a little different, it’s really hard to pinpoint which browser is the best one and, moreover, which browser to recommend to someone. Well, to solve everyone’s problems, users can now literally make their own browser—sort of.
XDA Forum Member buildyourownbrowser has posted the link for users to go and make a customized web browser that is unique to them. Now, to be fair, the browser is Maxthon, which we have written about before, and users won’t get to fiddle with any of its underpinnings. What users can do is customize the icon, theme, splash screen, browser name, and homepage. While it’s not as customizable as some would like it to be, it’s still pretty fun to have a browser with your own customized name, icon, and splash screen. Perhaps, and this may be a pipe dream, other browser developers can create their own customize method so users can all have their own little version of their favorite browser. This is Android, after all, and Android is about having options.
