    Default The Best Web Browser for Windows

    The Best Web Browser for Windows

    1. Google Chrome

    It is not surprising when Google Chrome ranks first. This utility proves its top position through the high browsing speed, security and stability.
    Google Chrome is compatible with all computer types from desktop computers to laptops and various operating systems. Up to now, this browser has supported most languages in the world.

    2. Mozilla Firefox

    Mozilla Firefox is not a strange name for many people. This utility browses Websites at high speed, ensures security for users when they surf the Web and provides a huge number of utilities.

    One of the most outstanding features of Firefox is Private Mode which helps users hide their identity when they are accessing Internet without leaving any vestige.

    3. Internet Explorer

    Internet Explorer ( or IE) is the earliest Web browser in the world. Despite the introduction of various Web browsers, especially Chrome and Firefox, IE never loses its appeal.

    This utility supports watching Videos without using Flash, storing Websites on the taskbar, protecting information when browsing Web, etc.

    4. Opera

    Opera is a fast Web browser and has the eye-catching interface. This utility integrates with the modern and advanced technology to increase the Web browsing speed and bring wonderful graphic experiences. Opera is also highly appreciated with the search function, bookmark management and the ability to block spyware when browsing Websites.

    5. Safari

    Safari enables users to browse Websites at lightening speed with a strange - looking design. This browser helps users manage and arrange Tabs easily. The utility will display a list of top Websites in the thumbnail mode so that you can view multiple Websites flexibly.

    6. Maxthon

    Maxthon is built based on IE. It is integrated with multiple plug-ins so that users can surf the Web safely in the Proxy environment. This utility has modern filters to block pop-up ads, protect your online account when you sign in different Websites.

    7. RockMelt

    RockMelt appeared on the market not long ago. It is used to connect Websites with social networks (especially Facebook). This utility`s interface is rather similar to Google Chrome except 3 small boards on the left (list of friends on the social network), on the right (list of social networks) and on the top (updated information and search results).

    8. SeaMonkey

    SeaMonkey is the all-in-one application including dedicated Email, news group, HTML editor and ICR chat. This Web browser is built based on open source codes. It allows users to browse Websites on different Tabs and open multiple pages at the same time instead of opening each page as before.

    9. Deepnet Explorer

    Deepnet Explorer is one of a few software which can alert threats through links. Hence, phishing Websites can steal information about online accounts of users. The weakness of this browser is that it runs only on Windows operating system.

    10. Avant Brower

    Avant Brower is famous as a user-friendly browser. Compared to other software, this utility stands out through the ability to play Videos without installing Flash, multiple modules, high security and preventing Virus, Malware and Adware. Like Deepnet Explorer, this utility is compatible only with Windows operating system.

    This is a never ending debate, and I guess we all have our personal favorites.

    Today I would rank, IE11, FF and then Chrome.

    I won’t say one browser or the other is good, but here comes my experience with browsers. My laptop is middle-end (actually low-end if you consider today’s standards): Intel Pentium T4400 2.2 GHz Dual Core, 3GB of RAM. Safari was tested on an older PC as I only had my laptop since 2013; that PC had Intel Celeron 420 1.6 GHz Single Core, 1GB of RAM.

    Opera wasn't too good back in the Presto times. Now I think it uses either Webkit or Chrome's engine, but tuned a bit differently. It uses more RAM (similar to beta versions of Edge) and performs better (responsiveness). Tested on 32-bit Windows 8.1 last time.

    On my 3GB-of-ram Linux system Chrome works quite well. On Windows, Edge had potential and early versions worked better than Chrome! As a matter of fact, I have used Microsoft Edge as my main browser between the first version of Project Spartan and some build between 10240 and 10586 [or I used it in 10586, the as-of-19-june-2016 latest non-Beta build? I don’t know really].

    Firefox: Nope, for being single-process. Nope. Nope. Using the about:memory page is not something natural (manually triggering garbage collection and cycle collection) Last time I used it was about 2 years ago (just moved to the laptop I’m editing this answer on…)

    IE: IE11 was actually quite good and I used it extensively, especially as it used the least amount of RAM in all multiprocess browsers I had! The only dislike I had was not being able to really kill a page as it was always restored. It was also nice in some early previews of Windows 10 as it could use the Edge rendering engine (before the Project Spartan, later renamed as Microsoft Edge, appeared). I have used it quite productively, but somehow the newest builds of Windows 10 have it genuinely borked (the one in Windows 8.1 works better and can be a good alternative)

    Apple Safari: Safari once had a Windows version… let's say it's a bit worse memorywise than Opera. As a matter of fact, once a page went close to the 2GB limit and crashed… It's reasonably nice on Hackintosh 10.9 and I expect it to be even better on 10.11 (not quite? 10.9 can receive Safari 9 as update…). Quite a good alternative on Apple machines, not so on other platforms (old on Windows, none on Linux)

    Others? Just ask and I'll give my opinion. Yes I may reinstall Windows so you can ask about Windows-only browsers, but you'll get a Linux answer quickly. My choice is Chrome, but always keep an eye open at the alternatives.
