Maxthon has launched a new version of its Android web browser designed for tablets. The app supports Android 1.6 and up, so you can install it on virtually any Android device, but the new browser has a user interface meant to take advantage of the extra screen real estate you get on a 10 inch tablet.

The feature list is virtually identical to the one for Maxthon’s smartphone web browser, but elements of the user interface including the navigation buttons have been moved to the top of the screen next to the location bar. The thumbnail icons for bookmarks on the new tab page are also larger, and there’s a new icon which you can tap to bring up the settings menu.

Other features that make Maxthon attractive include an integrated RSS reader, support for gestures, tabbed browsing, and the ability to synchronize your bookmarks across devices if you use Maxthon on a PC or another mobile device.

Maxthon’s tablet web browser is available as a free download from the Android Market.
