Maxthon has posted an updated version of its Android Web browser over at the xda-developer forums. The default Maxthon themes have been slightly recolored, but it’s below the surface that the most important change has been made.

Maxthon now supports pinch-to-zoom, which was one of the few critical pieces of functionality the browser was missing. The browser’s rendering and synchronization engines have gotten a speed boost, its interface has been polished and refined, and the address bar now offers suggestions as you type.

If you haven’t tried out Maxthon yet on your Android device, it’s definitely worth a download — it’s speedy and packed with useful features (including an RSS reader). You can find the stable version in the Android Market, or grab the updated .APK from Maxthon’s post on xda-developers.
