Browsers: it’s probably the most important and argued piece of software with regards to modern computer. Out of all the available internet browsers that are in the internet today, the battle between which are the best boils down to five super popular browsers namely: Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Safari, Opera and Google Chrome. These five browsers are in their own way, unique, better and special than the other. It will be up to you to choose which one is the winner and for the browsers to make sure they are the one you choose.
Although it is available for Windows-based computers only, Internet Explorer still carries a healthy chunk of the browser market, primarily because it is already present and ready to use with the most popular operating system in the world and also applies to most corporate computer plans. Even if most Internet Explorer users are loyal because they don’t want to try anything else, most people who vouched for this browser chose this because of the Internet Explorer versions 8 and 9 respectively. Only with a slight drawback of IE to be the most vulnerable browser against malwares and other viruses, Internet Explorer boasts of some new features that you just have to try to know how cool it is.
Mozilla Firefox has been the top one of the most used browsers compared to the other four. So as we can see, there has to be a good reason why most people tend to rely on this internet browser rather than trust another one. The archive of extensions that is currently maintained by Mozilla has over six thousand entries covering almost everything from blocking pop up ads, customizing the browser, managing clipboards and more. With this, loyal users have the reason to stay for the ability of these extensions extends to being able to be synchronized across multiple computers. The fact that Mozilla Firefox is a clean and fast browser is enough to win any internet user to it. The only thing that can be a drawback is when the extensions and themes for the browsers get too much, the browser slows down.
The Apple Company’s contribution to the internet browsing world is the Safari Browser. Although Safari is made to be used on Mac operating systems, many users switch to this browser when it first got out due to the fact that plenty of users want to try how it feels to use software from Apple. Safari is efficient and simple yet very well organized. But since Safari is up against Mozilla and IE in the PC world, it goes down to less votes compared to the more popular ones.
This browser offers al lot of very useful features in it and all these features are tested and proven to be working compared to some features Mozilla is offering. While some Firefox extensions don’t play nicely after installation, Opera’s extension and features work seamlessly with it. So when it comes to browser features, Opera has more power compared to the other four.
