    Absolutely would not recommend this. It is the biggest piece of garbage that install all kinds of unwanted stuff on your computer and takes over a lot of settings. The browser itself isn't even anything special and there interface and configuration is horrible. This is ideally suited for a 15 year old and you will regret even trying for 5 minutes as I did.

    The best way to go is the newest mypal, plays all vids and most media. The other is pale moon which is about the same.

    Maxthon is the undisputed heavyweight champion with regards to support for modern web standards, being that it is forked from Chromium 61 (nowhere near the latest version, but still as good as you're going to get in XP given its score of 526 on the HTML5 test). However, there are a lot of tradeoffs that come with that package, including your information potentially getting sold to the Chinese government (and of course the significant lack of addons/extensions/themes being that it is not a widely used browser). Mypal 28.x.x is far and away the best browser for XP at this time (Mypal 27.9.4 is also still good for most sites, but its standards support is not as good as its successor; it remains the best browser for computer CPUs without SSE2 support).

    Firefox 52.9.1ESR, Opera 36.x, and Chromium 49.x remain good browsing options for XP in 2019. Of these three, I far and away recommend Firefox the most, because of its significantly longer support period along with its solid support for modern browsing standards/technologies. SeaMonkey 2.49.5 (unofficial WG9 build), MyPal 27.9.4/28.x.x, and the latest Centaury are also super-heavyweight options as far as XP-compatible browsers go. Even K-Meleon is still a contender thanks to roytam1's 77-series builds!
