SAN FRANCISCO, May 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Maxthon, a cloud-based web browser, today announced the launch of the local area network (LAN) transfer feature, empowering users to quickly and easily transfer files of any size from their browser directly to any device on their local network. This is the first time the service is available within a browser.

"This underscores our commitment to making the web easier, faster and more convenient for users – no matter what device they're using," said Karl Mattson, VP of international for Maxthon. "The browser has been and remains the core component of anyone's Internet experience, and the addition of LAN transfer to our 'Cloud Push' feature is one of many steps we're taking to evolve the browser into the Operating System (OS) of tomorrow."

Now available on Windows and Android, (iOS and Mac coming soon), the LAN transfer feature significantly increases the speed at which files are moved from one device to another, bypassing the need to upload files to the cloud before pushing it to another device. By first identifying the local network and seeking connected devices, the Maxthon Cloud Browser makes it easy for customers to send large files between their devices quickly.

"The addition of LAN transfer will make sizeable improvements in users' everyday web experience," added Mattson. "Customers with the newest and fastest home Internet services can now move a 1 GB file from one device to another more than five times faster than the alternative 'up-over-and-down' cloud services."

Maxthon recently announced the launch of its cloud-based browser, providing a seamless web browsing and sharing experience across all devices and platforms. In a rapidly changing Internet environment, Maxthon continues to deliver cutting-edge innovations built around consumer needs. You can view a full list of Maxthon's offerings on www.maxthon.com.
