:O

OMG OMG OMG finally!!!!

Gonna test this beauty... And I'm SO glad that the download speeds have improved... Downloading and updating the alpha/beta versions was a b***h X)

EDIT:

Okay, first impressions:
A bit sliggish compared to Google Chrome (which is currently the only browser I use besides MX3 now) but it is also quite more merciful to my 2 gigs of RAM; it doesn't pile up on RAM, instead it releases it not just after closing a tab, but when navigating away from a tab which holds a heavy RAM load (flash apps). Haven't found any add-ons for v3 yet, duh, so no ad blocking and stuff.
Unlike the beta, there are two menus now. To the left is the login menu, which also allows to sync bookmarks; on the right, everything else.
Smooth scrolling and a popup blocker are included, cool; mouse gestures, auto-fill as well...
No way to customize the address bar, tons of icons to the left, search box is still too small and I am unable to resize it...
It handles extensive usage of Flash applications beautifully and without any stuttering, glitches and freezes; better than any other browser (especially Firefox). Retro mode is still the IE engine, which is good for when you visit Microsoft's websites that allow acces through IE exclusively.
I still want to cry due to the lack of private browsing...

Overall, I like it much better than v2, but its still not quite there yet. Though I am sure it will be in time, once people get used to v3 and start making compatible add-ons and stuff

I like it! It's fast and responsive.

However, there's one thing that annoys the hell outta me... When I press home, it opens my homepage in a new tab! Same goes for when I click on a bookmark. Can anyone help me out, there is no option to disable this!

This has been implemented into the browser since the early alpha versions... No way to change it, I'm afraid.

Also noticed, no spell-checker :/

Aww.. that's a pity. No Maxthon for me then. Also, the browser seems to forget favicons after each startup.

Will keep an eye on this browser though.
