obsolete as it may be it just works better on my computer. I had to go to 22.214.171.1240, which is also obsolete, since maxthon is up to 5 something by now. I tried win 10 and didn't like it, went back to 7. eventually I suppose I will be forced to go back to 10. maxthon 4.4 works but displays differently and takes a few steps to do what IE does in one.
the good news for me is today I can play wgt on IE 11 again. thankyou wgt for fixing it and thankyou folks for responding.
