What are MXDL files and how to open them

Are you having problems opening a MXDL file or are you simply curious about its contents? We're here to explain the properties of these files and provide you with software that can open or handle your MXDL files.

What is a MXDL file?

The .mxdl file extension is used for a temporary file format that was developed by Maxthon International Ltd. These MXDL files are incomplete files that have been downloaded from the Internet using the Maxthon software. This program is a multiplatform Web browser.These MXDL files are converted to the original format of the file as soon as the download has been completed. For example, if a user downloads an AVI video from the Internet using the Maxthon Web browser, then an MXDL file will appear in the local directory that's selected by the user for storing the AVI file download. When the video has been completely downloaded to this local directory, the .mxdl file is converted into an AVI file.To ensure that the Maxthon Web browser properly continues with file downloads, an MXDL file should be left alone. These are not meant to be opened because incomplete file downloads do not contain human readable data.
