Internet browsers have become the most used application of an average computer user. Gone are the days when one had to be content with the default IE that came shipped with the windows OS . Not long time back IE boasted of about 60-70% usage share of the browsers.The latest figures show they have been pegged down to about 43% with Mozilla firefox coming in second with about 27% share.
Today users have many options like Mozilla Firefox ,Google Chrome, Microsoft Internet Explorer, Opera , Apple Safari etc to choose from . And as in any market competition has meant user has become king with all of the above browsers claiming to be the better one with great features on offer.
One may compare the browsers on the basis of indicators like speed, average CPU usage, page load time, cache performance,memory usage etc.
Over the time what we have found is firefox is the right contender to be numero uno . They introduced us to the tabbed browsing and user customization through installable addons and plugins. And there are too many features incorporated to be briefed here. And google chrome claims to be the fastest out there.
We would like to go into the details of the browser shootout but that would come later . For now our personal rankings are as follows.
2. Internet Explorer
Safari,Opera follows suit.
