The Best Web Browser for Windows

August 30, 2011  /  Lifestyle
Due to Windows relatively open policy on allowing customers to chose their own web browser, the battle over which will win over the PC world has been raging for over twenty years. Technology titans such as Google and Mozilla have entered this market and are looking for their own piece of the pie after Internet Explorer has enjoyed dominance for so long. Here are some of the pros and cons of the most popular web browsers for Windows, and an insight into which is best.Opera brings up the bottom of the pack, but it still has a place on the most widely accepted web browsers. Opera does not bring much to the table in terms of unique functionality or a flashy user interface, but it does fulfill one very important role: a streamlined program for devices with lower-end specs. This does not necessarily mean old computers and laptops, but it is a great choice for mobile devices running Windows. Just in front of Opera comes Mozilla’s Firefox. Opposite of Opera, Firefox was built with countless add-ons, quick speeds, and constant updates. The downside of this is that many features require add-ons, meaning constant updates and many blocked websites.The two lead contenders are Internet Explorer and Google’s Chrome. Internet Explorer may not have the best specs, but it is still the most widely used browser in the world. This means that every website is tailored towards the features and updates of Internet Explorer. Out of all of the competition though, Google Chrome does take the gold medal. Each of the features, from tabbed browsing to intuitive linking, are far ahead of the competition. The user interface is completely customizable and no other browser can reach the speeds of Chrome.
