Chrome Internet Explorer and firefox. So, which browser is best for you ?


Today’s Windows Web browser choices are fast, secure, compliant with new Web standards. The products most people are likely to have heard of— Google Chrome, Microsoft Internet Explorer, and Mozilla Firefox also sports trim, clear interfaces.

But each browser has its own appeal and unique features.

Microsoft Internet Explorer excels at graphics hardware acceleration. It’s also the only 64-bit program of the lot and the only one that includes powerful Tracking Protection against site code that tracks your browsing activity.

Google’s Chrome exceeds other browsers in cutting-edge technologies like voice response and instant page loading for search.

Firefox is known for its extensions that let you customize the browser beyond what’s possible in the others. Other innovations include its clever Panorama bookmark tool and a Social API that makes it easy to integrate a social site into the browser.

A couple of lesser-known players—Opera and Maxthon—also have a lot to offer.

Opera has been around since the early days of the Web, and it is now distinguished for two things. First is its Speed Dial start page of tile links. This page not only gives easy access to frequently used sites, but it can also even display live-updated content from said sites. The second is its Off-Road mode, which reduces webpage data by sending it compressed from Opera’s cache servers. This can save you money on metered data connections.

Finally, and perhaps most extra-jammed of all, is the least-known of our browser candidates—Maxthon. A slew of tools like media download, screen capture, and integrated cloud services are just of few of this China-made browser’s goodies. And it includes both Internet Explorer’s and Webkit’s page-rendering engines for extra compatibility. On top of all that it gets top grades of the number HTML5 features supported and does very respectably on speed tests.

Despite how excellent these browsers have gotten, website consumption is such a complex matter these days that every one of them will encounter particular sites that won’t display correctly. A show of hands if you’ve seen Chrome’s Aw Snap! page recently or gotten a message saying your brand-new IE11 is “out of date.” Sometimes it’s simply a matter of the site testing for particular browsers and refusing to let you in if your version and product don’t fit their preset conditions—even if the site would work perfectly well in the browser. For these reasons, it’s always a good idea to have more than one browser installed.

So while no one browser will be perfect for all your Web needs, you still have several excellent choices. It’s just a matter of deciding what’s most important to you.
