I’m a computer and Internet addict. I spend almost 10+ hrs on Internet every day and my work involves working on many web pages at once. Being an Internet savvy, I prefer using the best Internet browser and here word best means different for different users. For example, for me it’s browser speed which makes me stick to it. For some, it’s addons which make them stay with any particular browser.
Here in this post we will discus about which is popular and favorite browser for Bloggers and for general users. For me, it used to be Opera when I started moving to other browser from IE, then I moved to Firefox and now I’m a big fan of Chrome. One thing, which in particular I like about Google Chrome is it’s speed and memory management. Anyways, we will look into all this factor individually but will getting reader’s feedback on which one according to them is the best browser. The best way to find out which browser is best on the basis of performance and web standard is by running Acid3 Test. You can learn more about Acid3 Test on Wiki.
Best of the Best Internet Browser:
We are not going to discus all the browsers in the market, but we will look into some of the most popular one. I will add few details about these browsers. If you never heard about any of them, it won’t take much time to download and try it on your system. You never know, you might be missing your next favorite browser.
Needless to say, Firefox is one of the most popular browser among Internet savvy users. One of the major reason of Firefox is it’s addon and being a part of open-source community. Firefox is constantly updated with new feature and there was a time in 2010-11, when Chrome was acquiring the browser market with rapid rate and release of latest Firefox versions (Firefox 7, FF8, Firefox9) new features like: supports Swipe navigation for Mac OS, HTML5 support, improved start-up time and better memory management. All these features, which Firefox was missing from long time is back and needless to say, it’s still one of the popular browser.

Popular Firefox Addons:
I kind of feel by mentioning Chrome at second position because this is my favorite browser at the time of writing. I love chrome but without addons. I have seen many bugs and issues after installing new chrome addons. I usually stick myself to some of the popular blogging chrome addons. More over, profile managermenet and syncing with Google account will make you fall in love with this browser. Though, chrome crashed for me at times, but I don’t expect it to survive much when 40+ tabs are open with many of them as flash sites.
Though, in recent versions of Chrome, many people reported about slow speed and bugs. Anyways, this is one browser which I can call as best internet browser for Bloggers, but again it’s your choice. As many bloggers prefer such addons which are only available for Firefox.
Download Chrome Browser Chrome
This is the first 3rd party browser which I used after Internet explorer and that was the first time I came across features like password wand, speed dial and many others. Though, Mozilla and Chrome keep acquiring the browser market but at the same time Opera loyal users keep increasing. They introduced turbo technology, Opera Unite and specially for people with slow Internet speed, Opera browser is the best pick.
Download Opera Browser: Opera
Safari :Official browser of safari and favorite browser for mac users. It has wide support like Firefox.
There was a time when Internet explorer was completely out of market and only people who were using it was one who got Internet explorer with stock computer. Later on, Microsoft dumped older versions of IE and introduced IE8 which was rated as one of the top browser at that time. Later on IE9 and upper version keep making IE fans happy. IE 10 also hit the market with Windows 8 but I have not yet tried it, but if you have used IE10, do let me know your experience with it.
This is not all there are many other browsers like Netscape, RockmeIT, Maxthon, Avant browser but many of them are still struggling to make into the list of top browsers. Though, in future I expect browsers to be going more social like RockMeIT. But, this is something time will explain. Do let us know which one according to you is the best internet browser?
