Fighting for the Crown

When a new computer is purchased, the user picks out a browser that fits their needs. Many have their own particular preference, and a majority of the time these browsers serve the same overall purpose. However, certain features here and there have changed up the browsers and have drawn lines dividing users between certain camps. Three of these camps, Internet Explorer, Chrome and Firefox have grown rapidly with their respected fanbase. But which of the three is the overall best? Which browser suits the needs of the majority while the vocal minority bashes the product?  To determine this, a number of factors have to be considered such as:

  • Special features
  • The interface experience
  • HTML support

Of course there are a number of other factors to consider, but these are just the main three that all computer users are going to want to investigate first. Users will want to make sure that the particular browser that they want to have as their primary use on the computer will fulfill the needs that they require the most. Many browsers share similar features, and all of them are free to download, so users should feel free to pick and choose while experimenting with what works best for them.

Internet Explorer

imagesFor Windows computers, Internet Explorer is the default browser that automatically comes on every Windows device. For some people, the default browser is enough for them. For others, Internet Explorer just doesn’t quite cut it in the same way that other browsers do. Its features are limited, and while its tracking protection is solid, it’s too little too late for the browser. It handles basic HTML making Internet Explorer a good choice for casual computer users not looking to be on the computer all the time.

This is equally true when it comes to the browser as well. With Firefox, its sleek design and simple functions might serve well for some, but for those android users looking to synch with their computer and expect great results from using Firefox may wish to go to a different browser. The mobile version pales in comparison to the regular version, and in an age where mobile devices have some of the highest sales numbers in electronics, it’s simply not acceptable.

Google Chrome

Google ChromeIt would appear that Google Chrome, which is newer in comparison to Internet Explorer and Firefox, is the better of the three as an overall browser experience. Chrome not only works well both on a computer and on an Android device, but there are also a number of special apps that can be downloaded, all of which come in an easy to use App Store. Plus, Chrome has constant updates and is the best at working with HTML5. For the moment, Chrome would appear to be the winning browser.
