I have been using it in Windows since 2005 and before that it's predecessor, MyIE2. Originally recommended by Ranger Bob, so yes I consider it an excellent browser.
Of course can not comment on the Linux version. I posted the link because I know a couple of Linux users who have expressed interest. It was released on March 25.
I have been using a new computer with Windows 8 for 10 days or so and it was one of the first things I installed.
In the past I have ventured into Linux territory (one of the early Mints) I have heaps of space on my semi-retired XP machine (being kept for storage and its installed photo editors not compatible with Win 7 or 8). Perhaps I may give Linux another go on it at some stage.

I have tried most other browsers and always return to Maxthon. I do keep Firefox installed and up to date as well.
There are detractors of Maxthon, and they give good reasons but it suits me and I am not likely to switch

Interested to know how the Linux version fares, it has been a long time coming.
