in my opinion , i think althought there are many browser for you to choose ,and they are have different superiorities of themselves. but IE including almost all the function you need to use internet not only browser the website, but also for your bank online or shopping online. and these fullness function is other browsers lack of.

i heard that explorer and safari are the worst, but i have only experience explorer and it is a big mess. it has the most problems viruses and spyware and corrupt exe files. i am using foxfire, and so far it seems a lot better. i heard opera is also good, but i havent used it. i have heard of marathon before. my computer is pc. i am not very familiar with apple. i have used apple in school, when i was in college. and i dont really have a preference between apple or pc. i can use either one. i think take a poll here. and use the one that most people here like. if many people living all over the world are using it and are doing ok, it must be good.

Firefox is the best for PC, Safari is best for Mac. That's all. Firefox is good because its not RAM extensive. But Safari is RAM consuming, but fast. It has some compatibility problems. Some images don't open. But Firefox for the PC is the best. With so many useful and not needed plug ins, browsing is a bit easier and safer and fun. But Safari on the Mac rocks. It's somehow faster than firefox, and is good. I rarely use IE, so cannot much say about it. bourne

u r perfectly right except one thing! Apple has released Safari compatible with windows......now it's time for Safari to rule the world!

Lol.. I know it, but it doesn't run as fast as it does for the Mac. And since PC users are so exposed to bad stuff, they would surely love to have those plug ins which save them from adwares and spywares and pop ups etc, that safari will be a second option to most people. bourne

I use opera and safari, both r fastest and secure. But firefox is ahead of them because of add-one and speed but it eat more memory than opera and safari.

I've only used Firefox, so I have no idea how good the others are. Is there a website that reviews the different browsers?

IE is pretty popular, though I use opera, mainly. I have firefox that I have to use on a site to be able to work there. I like opera because it is fairly fast, and for awhile, they seemed to be the only ones having functional tabs in the app.

When it comes to fastest browser it must be firefox. When it comes to popular browser it has to be IE. IE comes with windows so even for someone who doesn't even use net knows IE. I have used IE, firefox and opera. I didn't continue using opera because i wanted to use it because torrent files can be downloaded it, but i found no option to pause torrents so i stopped using it.

Chrome, the new kid on the blcok, is the fastest of the four browser. Firefox is the best of the bunch. It has the best feature set and the best overall browsing experience. I use Firefox with Cooliris enabled and it just provides a browsing experience that no of the other browsers come close to. Internet Explorer 7 and 8 are stable and good options. Opera is also a very good browser. It also has a very complete feature set. Opera doesn't implement as much of the W3C standards as I would like.

FireFox v3 - One of the Best browsers i have ever used..
Yup you heard it right, FireFox is Better compared to IE. I'm not sure about Opera, when there's Success there's always a competition. Opera has got a lot of stuff in it, a downloader, voice libraries, Mouse gestures, and now even an integrated BitTorrent Client. FireFox has a great source code it supports scripts and a lot of plugins and addons, so what it doesn't have a BitTorrent client, at least its faster and consumes lesser resources compared to Opera. One of the best features i like about Firefox - it shows the Currently introduced Gmail Themes which IE doesn't. And its Maxthon pal, Its a Browser based upon IE's process kernel, only thing i hate about it is it crashes a lot. I loved Maxthon when it was at version 1 on my Windows PC and now i use FireFox on my Macintosh. i haven't used Safari after the WWDC '08 as i read that Hackers cud intrude your Mac thru Safari.. I love using FireFox better than any Browser, I'm actually downloading the FireFox 3 upgrade for my Mac.. Regards, Shek

I have only used Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox. From using those two, i'd have to say that Mozilla Firefox is definately faster and better. The computer i'm using now doesn't have Firefox installed on it unfortunately. Internet Explorer is too slow and you can't display certain types of media like on Firefox.

I have tried from Netscape to Safari, and I will always choose Firefox. I remember that my favorite was Opera, because I really like Opera Mini for mobile phones, but after a friend recommend me Firefox and told me about all their advantages and disadvantages, I decide to change and use it. and now I only want to use Firefox. It's the best!

I've never even heard of opera before. Safari I havent used much, but it seems to be quite slow. Firefox is a little faster at downloading than ie, but that's about it, not much different. I dont know which is the best.
