Hey all, So with all these new browsers now available... what do you think is the best and quickest? So what do you think is is safest and most secure? We now have the normal Internet Explorer, Googel Chrome, Firefox... and many others? Which one do you like the best and for what reasons? I'm thinking about changing

Thanks mate! Firefox appears to be the choice of most people, any particular reason why you initially went across to firefox? is it because you were having troubles with the other browers you were using?

Hi There, My most favorite is IE8 browser. Even though it's tab feature is not as good as Mozilla's but all the other features are as competitive to mozilla. Great work Microsoft .

This question has been asked several times. There are several factors, including personal taste, in deciding what the best browser is. You have not mentioned Safari and Opera. Chrome requires a comparatively large amount of hard disk space. On top of that the memory usage is higher, because of program design. It is fast, but I am not really impressed because of the large overhead. Sometimes Chrome fails to load on my system whenever I have several programs open at the same time. If your computer is several years old, it may be better not to use Chrome. Firefox is fast, especially version 3.6 Alpha. Its popularity stems from the fact that it was a free stand alone browser. Nevertheless it has security holes. Even though the holes were patched, certain rogue program can infiltrate into our computer system via Firefox (and IE). As for memory management there is still a big room for improvement. It crashed out several times on me. The number of add ons attracts many users. Safari is another fast browser. Nevertheless its overhead requirements and minimal functionality, makes it one of the rarely used browser by me. Opera is an under estimated browser by many Internet users. It is not popular because it was not free, its menu had a layout creating confusion among IE users, and it used a script which was not compatible with many websites, even though it made the browser secure. It is now free, and the compatibility issue has reduced a lot. It is fast. Opera 10 Beta has a turbo function which kicks in automatically, if it is set to do so, when the connection speed slows down. Thus we get a fast download time. It has a small foot print, and is more efficient on memory management. We can use Opera on slow, old computers. At the moment I have 3 open windows, and 54 open tabs, without any noticeable change in performance. Make a decision after you have tried them. Your computer system, requirements, and usage habits should determine your choice.

I think I agree with you that Opera is fast. I use it alternately with firefox and it does not give me any problem at all.

My personal favorite is Firefox. I used to have a ton of trouble with IE, so I just gave up on it. After talking to a few friends online, they all recommended Firefox, so I gave it a shot. Never been happier with a browser :)

Definately not Chrome - Too many security risks. It'll fill your computer with Adware. IE8's proving to be pretty nice, but my personal favorite is Firefox, as it's the most customizable out of the three, and is also the fastest and most secure.

I think the best browser is Mozilla Firefox because it is fast and because I think it is faster than Internet Explorer.

Internet Explorer 8 - even though it is new, shiny and somewhat handy - It still possesses the qualities that Internet Explorer 7 had. And I mean the bad ones - having serious problems with reading .html and .css files correctly, It has ruined alot of webpages for me and others. Chrome - a what? Came from nowhere, haven't heard of anything special about it. Opera - too... uh.. Vista-ish for me. Stuff is cluttered around the screen, and managing through the rubbish takes me too long. Mozilla Firefox 3.5 - just fine - fast, easy and trustworthy.

I currently use firefox and opera alternately. I also use the old Internet explorer 6. I don't like the new IE8 because it often hangs although more secure now. Firefox and opera are both fast and light based on my surfing usage. I prefer them both.
