Finding the right web browser for your business’ needs can be challenging, as every user is different and will likely have a preference. While it’s easy to list off the most well-known browsers, including Google Chrome, Safari, Microsoft Edge, and Mozilla Firefox, it’s more difficult to find one that suits your needs. Which one can you count on most to get your work done in an efficient manner?
Long Story Short: Chrome is Most Popular
60 percent of the market share uses Chrome as their primary browser, and it’s because of two reasons: options and speed. Developers know that this is what the average Internet user wants, so they have therefore been able to prioritize them and earn a sizeable share of the market ever since its inception (it also helped that its primary competition for a while was Internet Explorer, either).
Chrome has been a fast web browser since it launched, and other browsers simply can’t meet the speeds as consistently as Chrome can. Even more points are in Chrome’s favor due to how simple its user interface is, as well as the plentiful functionality that it hides underneath, the extensions list included. Firefox continues to improve in popularity though, and with its new Quantum features, it can give Chrome some competition in terms of speed. Firefox even has new security features, making Mozilla comparable to Chrome in this regard. Another option is Microsoft Edge, which makes it easy to share web pages through email and other social networks, as well as provides the ability to draw on web pages or save them as notes. Plus, Edge integrates well with Windows itself.
Depending on your specific needs or purpose, other browsers might be better because these browsers are made exclusively for certain objectives. For example, Opera has a feature called Opera Turbo which makes it easier to use over a slow Internet connection. Other options are Vivaldi for customizable browsing experiences, including keyboard shortcuts and mouse gestures. Those who want privacy can use Brave browser or the Tor browser, and those who frequently use torrents to download might enjoy Torch Browser.
The award for best browser will ultimately be given to the one you prefer the most. What’s your favorite web browser? Let us know in the comments.
