Rumors: Baidu Acquired Maxthon and Tudou’s $53 Million VC Funding

1 min read

If you love rumors, here are some that will definitely entertain you:

Maxthon, the NO.1 Chinese browser has been acquired by Baidu. May I remind you that Google has invested probably $1 million Maxthon about 1 year ago. So is it another win of the war Baidu vs. Google?

It was reported that Tudou was fined by SARFT. But its forth round VC funding is still ongoing, and the amount is said to be $53 million. Some people think it is just a PR strategy from Tudou, and the purpose is to distract people’s attention as the rumor about Tudou’s shutdown was everywhere. If the rumor is true, does that mean that the Chinese Internet environment is that bad as reported?

Hopefully, we can put some updates here shortly.
