Browsers - Which is the best?

Postby Zodiac » March 15th, 2012, 9:56 am

Well we all use internet browsers, but in your opinion which is the best?
Personally I think Safari is the best because it is quite fast, has a good built in spell checker and as a good Ad-block add-on.

I've always used Firefox, but anything beats IE.

I've used Firefox for quite a long time now, although I did use Opera for a bit before I got Linux and went back to Firefox.

I use Firefox by default. However, Opera is actually very good too, so lately I've been using that sometimes.

Here's what I think:

Firefox
+ wide range of add-ons (including outstanding AdBlock Plus)
- sluggish

SRWare Iron
+ lightning fast
+ excellent download manager

- you've got to admit - it is rather short on features
- such as RSS


Opera (which is installed on my PC, but I haven't used it for long enough to say much of anything about it)
+ ?????
- can't get add-ons for previous versions
And I can't say much else about it.

Hard to say what the better browser is.
Authoritarianism is for wimps.

Smart people don't buy "smart" devices without very carefully weighing up the risks and benefits beforehand.

My PC: Core i3 4130 on GA-H87M-D3H with GT640 OC 2GiB and 2 * 8GiB Kingston HyperX 1600MHz, 2 * WD3003FZEX-00Z4SA0, Pioneer BDR-209DBKS, Seasonic G-360, Chenbro PC31031, Windows 7 Pro (though I do want to build a second system with GNU/Linux).

Ever since I switched to Windows 7 64bit on my PC, I've used Waterfox (a 64bit version of Firefox). It has most of Firefox's add-ons available, but it's faster. Obviously, though, you need to be running a 64bit OS.

Had some stability issues with waterfox a few versions back and started just using normal 32 bit Firefox more. Chrome is still my main browser though.

I'm late to the party, but I use Chrome because it's what I've used for a long time and that's where my bookmarks and extensions are.

As for which browser is the best, I like Chrome for it's inspect element feature. When I'm designing a web page, I will first put an element in the source file to get it in position. Then, I style it by using Chrome's inspector until I get exactly what I want. Then, I copy the styling from the inspector to the stylesheet, and I'm done. This feature alone puts Chrome at the top for me.

I know other browsers have the same feature, but when I've tried them in the past they have been less responsive.

I checked it out again, and it seems to be a lot better than how I remember it. Good to know. :)
