Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox are the top tree web
browsers. In spite of similar basic functionalities, there are some differences
in these browsers.
The internet has truly become the quintessential place for all sorts of
activities. Be it buying stuffs or simply looking for the news, whatever be your
problem or order of subject, the internet always has an ideal solution in place.
But to surf the internet one needs to depend on browsers. This is where a
strange problem kicks in. Using the wrong browser can actually affect the way
you surf the internet. It may sound strange but itís true that browsers are
directly proportional to your surfing speed. Yes, your internet connection does
play a massive role but eventually the speed needs to show up on the browser and
this where most of us make the mistake of opting for the wrong browser.
Presently, there are three browsers on the market that are equally good; well
you could say they are the top three. However, certain subtle differences
differentiate them in a massive way. Down below is a complete comparative
analysis that will essentially let you know which one is best:
Mozilla Firefox: Released way back in the year 2004, Firefox
was soon able to establish its presence into the raging world of online
browsers. Available as a free download, Mozilla Corporation have lately released
the latest Mozilla Firefox 3.6 that comes with its own Personas (toolbar skins),
support of WOFF and many more such ultra cool features.
Advantages: Firefox being an open source web browser enjoys
the use of large amount of extensions and add-ons. However, one advantage that
Firefox provides over every other browser is the possibility of negating spyware.
On an average, an online PC would collect more than 300 spywares just within a
single browsing hour. This problem is especially seen with Internet explorer.
Firefox is designed around an active system that essential cuts out 80% of
Internet explorer: Introduced by Microsoft, Internet
explorer is one of the oldest browsers present within the online domain.
However, with experience comes the possibility of bringing innovations within
the field. The latest Internet explorer version 8 (IE8) was introduced by
Microsoft on 2009. Unlike earlier versions, this one brought in a better user
interface, tabbed browsing, Ajax support and many more such fantastic features.
Advantages: The latest IE8 uses a special smart address bar
that essential makes is much easier to discover sites that you need to visit.
The browser is designed to quickly match the info stored within your history to
make the result appear accurate and far quicker. However, what makes IE truly
special is the fact that it supports ActiveX and VBScript. Although the average
user might not find the option that interesting but if you were to be a web
developer or a businessman then this feature can be of great aid.
Chrome: Developed by Google, Chrome was introduced into the
market on September 2008. The browser runs on application framework and the
web-kit layout engine. Although the browser doesnít have the experience of say
an Internet explorer or a Firefox but it definitely matches them both from the
performance and features point of view.
Advantages: Google has made the Chrome enormously light, far
lighter than the Firefox or the IE8. Using low resources means increasing on
browser speed. Chromeís biggest advantage is that itís incredibly quick to load
but surprisingly carries most of the common features seen on IE8 and Firefox
such as tabbed browsing, Integrated Search Engine, Smart Toolbar, RSS Feeds,
