Best Web Browsers

The Top Ten
1 Google Chrome

Safe, secure, fast, reliable. In fact, the best browser and the most used browser in the world. It's very impressive and deserves its top position.

Number 1 can beat it because... Google Chrome is really a chrome... Moreover it has some features like tagging system, themes, and better access to facebook, which I really hope from a web browser.

Chrome is fast. That's about all you can really say about it. Other that that, it eats RAM as if it was chocolate, and it's one of the least secure browsers because of how widely used it is.

I love how you can log into your browser with your Google account and all your passwords and bookmarks are saved an available. This means I can do something on my home computer which is replicated or at least readily available (like a username) on a website on my work computer. Makes things simpler and easier for the user. Also the quickest way to run a Google search on something. Just Ctrl+t and start typing then Enter

2 Mozilla Firefox

Firefox restricts users a lot of things in name of security and to enable some things you have to spend long time on their not-so-attractive forums and try various measures on trial-and-error basis... Most of the solutions include clear cache and cookies and still doesn't solve any problem and then I have to load and login everything from scratch as if it's my first time on the browser... Extensions are no good... I got fed-up of the problems that occurred and again, not even the forums were able to help like unnecessarily showing server not found errors and making us reload the page and that gmail's standard view too... Yes they have got solutions but to have a solution means there is a PROBLEM in the first place... on the other hand Chrome has better extensions, efficient security measures with minimum user restrictions... Firefox to be honest never made an impression for me... Chrome did...

It's good when you first install it... Then all of a sudden, it stopped rendering Google. I'd switch back to Chrome, but saying that was a RAM hog is an understatement.

I used firefox for 2-3 years and was satisfied with it until I returned home from a 4 day trip and left power to the PC computer turned off. Everything cranked up as normal until I went to enable Firefox, it had evidently crashed because when it came up there was a screwed up screen. It had turned a darker color and wide slanted lines or bars were diagonally across it and would not accept anything more than the screwed up screen.

Most people use chrome because "Chrome is fast and all other web browsers are really slow and suck."
This is simply not true. Firefox is nearly as fast as Chrome and has much better privacy features too. The Bookmarks menu and layout look better, your History and the page to update the browser from are more accessable and recently Chrome has been crashing a lot on my computer so now Firefox is my main web browser.

3 Safari

Honest pure review and not bias, I have use the latest version of Safari. I has nice looking design. However, its speed is slow compared with Google Chrome, CometBird, FireFox, Opera, Internet Explorer and other fast browses. That would have been ok for me if it had not been frozen (not responding) ans crashed. So I have to stop using it. Who else said it is one of the best browsers, though for my experience it is not true!

Safari is a fast web browser made by Apple inc. Apple is the famous tech company that makes the best tech appliances in the world. Safari has a high average speed (speed varies depending on type of network.) This tabbed browser is perfect, and works best on Mac (OS), Ipad & IPhone (iOS), but also works on all other software, apart from android, an operating system made by Google. Safari can be downloaded by simply going on the apple website, and by pressing the download button (conditions apply.)

What? For me, Safari is the best even I use PC. Try it and you can forcefully say that Safari is the best. Honest.

Safari, which is now available for PCs has great look and optimized Tabbed browsing which comes with high speed.

4 Opera

A super underrated browser that deserves at least #2 and a lot more users. Good speed, simplicity, an AMAZING speed dial that cannot be beat by any other browser, battery saving mode, BUILT IN ADBLOCK which is a VERY effective adblock... and opera turbo which speeds up your browsing when you have a poor internet connection... all the innovations and features are awesome on Opera. Oh and did I mention it has ALL of chrome's extensions plus its own?

Fast, slick, and with features you won't find on other bigger browsers for a few years like built in its VPN and mouse gestures. Historically a trend setter in the browser world and while their move to Chromium stalled the implementation of new ideas, they have gotten back on the horse. Opera is even compatible with Chrome extensions which only increases the features on offer.

I've used each of the big 5 for a period of about a year each exclusively minimum, and must say Opera is my favourite by some distance; it's fast, slick and easy to use. The only downside is due to a relatively small user base some websites don't bother to make themselves compatible with it, but that isn't a problem I regularly encounter.

Visual bookmarks so you remember what you bookmarked, yes sites try imitate this feature but they take time loading, this feature built-in gets the thumbnails instantly. Great to the point privacy policy, seriously its just 3 lines when it talks about the browser. Bad pop up blocker, bad download manager, it takes Google Chrome extension using an Opera addon!

5 Maxthon

People don't know about this browser. Maxthon 3 deserves more attention than it gets. It has way better features and speed compared to the other browsers (it may also vary on your system).

I showed my friends this browser and they stopped using whatever they were using and instantly started to use this and passing it along. I mean, it has LEVELS! What other browsers has a level system and exact amount of hours you've been on it? (I've been on Maxthon for 2718 hours) and I'm in level 35. I sincerely hope whoever is reading to try this browser and or keep using it and spreading the "word".

About 10 years ago when most people use the old version of internet explorer.
This people is always upset about how slow there browser are and At that time I already knew about the Google chrome. When I hear people and their negative comment to Internet explorer.
I was like "hihihi, pitiful people don't even know Google chrome",
When Google chrome gets popular I search for other alternative, I tried almost everything, that's the time when I found MAXTHON.
Now when I hear people saying Google chrome is the best I was like "Pitiful people don't even know Maxthon".

Lets be honest, Google Chrome, Firefox, Opera, and Internet Explorer all get viruses. I cannot say that about Safari, but Safari does not have Speed Dial, a Ubuntu-like dock, or built-in games. Within only 3 days, I got a virus on Google Chrome, Firefox, Opera, and Internet Explorer. I have been using Maxthon for 2 months now, and I have not gotten a single virus. Maxthon is also not as censored as the other browsers (saying that they don't track what you do, your searches are not tracked.

A very good browser with unique features with built in applications like Resource Sniffer (very useful & unique), Reader Mode (very useful), Magic Fill, Snap Shot capture of images within a page, Night mode viewing, Sky Note & MX Games. Though not as stable as Chrome or Firefox, the additional features add that extra zing to the product. At times the browser is prone to crashes, nothing alarming but a little irritating. Highly recommended.

6 Internet Explorer

Internet Explorer has been the pioneer in web browsing for over a decade. Nearly three quarters of the Internet has been optimized for this browser, and the simplistic interface is both intuitive and functional. The UI is simply gorgeous, tabs, shortcuts, favorites, and history functions are all perfected. The browser is lightning fast, as well as feature rich. Aside from its obsolete Trident rendering engine (versus WebKit with Chrome, Safari, and Firefox), Internet Explorer is superior in every way.

I'm surprised to find it at number 6, it should be way below. All these comments saying that those hating on Internet have never tried it have most probably never tried anything beside it. Internet Explorer crashes a lot and is very slow, it is not a myth! Modern websites uses newer versions of HTML that Internet Explorer is refusing to adapt to. That's why so many times, IE is unable to read parts of the HTML code of a website, causing the page to crash or stop responding. 90% of people have stopped using it by now and IE has only itself to blame.

Internet Explorer is faster than Google Chrome!

True Story: I click on the icon of Google Chrome to open it, a few seconds later in do the same thing but with internet explorer. Internet Explorer opened right when I pressed on the icon. And Google Chrome did not open yet, it opened a few seconds later!

IT IS A LOT SLOWER

I get tons of crap for using IE from other web designers who hate it for always being a pain in the behind to code for. I say it's because I want to use the same browser that my audience is using... but the truth is: I love it. It's fast, simple, and ie9 is as sexy as I ever imagined a browser could be.

7 Netscape Browser

I never use this but just saying to hear from others, it's good...
Actually very good

What is netscape browser?!

Netscape has been dead since 2008.

De best of all

8 UC Browser

I've been using this browser on my android tablet. It's very stable in terms of download, even if your downloaded files are not directly downloaded.. It resumes after the connection is established..

There are a lot of good web browsers on Android and I personally use Opera, Dolphin, Chrome the stock Android browser and UC Browser. While I like them all I would have to say that UC is definitely the best for now!

Simple, easy, fastest browser ever, great features including data compressing which provide best possible speed and adblocking.
I have switched from chrome to uc. Thanks uc team for launching desktop version

But UC Browser is best browser than all browsers. I have used and checked every top rated browser but its best.
Unstoppable downloading and browsing.

9 Microsoft Edge

UI/UX of Microsoft edge is very nice. The home screen is nice, you can set page layout to be focused, inspirational or informational. The color scheme is nice.
In the downloads section, you have filters available for the downloaded files as per the content type.
In the favorites toolbar, you get sufficient space to add your favorite links.
Performance of Microsoft edge is great as far as speed, memory, ram usage and battery life are concerned.
Edge is rich in extensions and security features.

REVISION Edge is thankfully working well, on tablet Surface Duo and PC. Only issue is that Collections don't sync across devices. End of revision. The app recently keeps crashing. I log into a website and because it crashes during log on (AppleID) where I enter a 2 step text code I can't even get into the website. Frustrating. Only started doi g this yesterday 5th March. This crash occurs after 30 seconds.

For those who need a fast browser, with tons of features and good security. Based on the Chromium engine so all your stuff can be transferred with no loss of data. Never thought I'd see the day where I would be using a Microsoft browser as my default, but this new Edge has not hindered me in any way since I had adopted it.

Edge is also very user friendly that has implemented small game when the internet is disconnected and also have multiple options like bookmarks, extensions that were earlier missing and due to these features edge has become a much better browser than it used to be in the past few years.

10 AOL Explorer

I love this browser, this is the first ever browser I used as a child. Later my dad upgraded it to AOL Desktop.

Nothing but "what's going on in Hollywood". Popup city. Adds, adds, adds. Junk. Don't get near it!

The Contenders
11 RockMelt

It's the best browser I have used because the most imp thing in this browser is that it opens all the blocked pages which we can't open on others we can use them on this browser...

Faster and better than firefox and google chrome. You can open two accounts at the same time. I think this also should be on the top.

I loved this browser best of all for flash player games but you stopped it for computers this made me very sad..

I just downloaded rockmelt and its really fast! I think rockmelt should be on one of the top 5 of all time

12 Avant

New dynamic multi-processing technology can effectively boost the browsing speed, save memory and reduce CPU usage significantly. Bring you fresh new experience.

With Avant Browser's built-in multi-threaded downloader, it's much faster to download files from webpage or your email box, and much easier to manage download files.

I love how you can use three rendering engines in one browser without crashing. Plus, with mouth gestures and the Chrome Web Store--through the use of WebKit--Avant makes you feel like you're using the top three browsers in the world at the same time, on the same browser.

First time user of the New Avant Ultimate with tri engine support. First day and first time no complaints. I am sold so far.!

13 Torch

It's funny how few people know about this browser considering how many people like to download off the internet. I find torch to be a solid browser, and the embedded features set it apart from the other browsers listed.

It is way better than firefox, opera and Google chrome but as it is new, it should be giving better survive as it is sometime fluctuates their services.

Torch is faster than Chrome, Chrome is the slowest browser, I use IE 11, Chrome, Torch and Firefox. And fastest one is Torch. Chrome is slower than IE 11, they should do something to make it faster...

Exceptional browser, beats Google Chrome, Mozilla and internet explorer with its hands tied behind its back. Download and trial!

14 Brave

As a privacy geek, I cannot recommend this browser enough. It not only blocks ads and trackers, it also obscures your identity online by changing your session ID's. Think of it like putting on a different mask every time you go online. It's not perfect and can't guarantee privacy from a determined government agency or if your machine is infected. It can, however, restrict companies from watching, recording and reporting your every move. On top of this, it's very compatible with most sites.

Best web browser ever. Faster, more secure, and has no ads at all! And it can use chrome extensions as well. this should be #1 on this list.

In June 2018, Brave released a pay-to-surf test version of the browser. This version of Brave is preloaded with approximately 250 ads, and sends a detailed log of the user's browsing activity to Brave for the short-term purpose of testing this functionality. Brave announced that expanded trials will follow. Later that month, Brave added support for Tor in its desktop browser's private browsing mode.

Until December 2018, Brave ran on a fork of Electron called Muon which was marketed as a "more secure fork". Nevertheless, Brave developers moved to Chromium citing a need to ease their maintenance burden. The final Muon-based version was released with the intention that it would stop working and instruct users to update as the end of life approached.

15 Puffin

Awesome browser. Not for full-time use, but only if I need flash player or something. Very good browser. Helped me a lot. They should improve the typing, but everything else... perfect.

The only good browser. Chrome is good on PCs, but SUCKS on mobile devices. Puffin on my $150 tablet with 1kbps internet outperforms Chrome on my dad's latest gen core i7 4ghz 64GB RAM gaming PC with gigabit internet.

Fastest browser till date on android. Has PC sync and flash as well.

Plays any type of video

16 Lunascape

Awesome I have used this for quite a while in my desktop and recently I have found this android version.so it's awesome,with this I can open almost every page I usually enter, and that include intranet's and pop up's pretty awesome to have the power of gekko engine and trident.

Fast, impressive browser. I have an older phone and this browser is much faster. Glad I tried it out as I think I'll use it from now on.

Fastest browser there is!

17 CoolNovo

I like CoolNovo because it has different features like boss key, omnibox and etc. It is fast and fluid a bit like Google Chrome because it is also Chromrium.

The best browser ever! It has many functions which make browsing on internet easier.

Just like Google chrome but slightely better. There are more short cuts and its easier to use

Easy to use with interesting setting options.
Worth the tryout

18 Dolphin Browser

It I love on my android devices.

19 Deepnet Explorer
20 Android Browser

Would love to helop make my favorite browser even better.
TThanks.

21 Mozilla SeaMonkey

Fast and flexible that can surpress Google chorme..It's extension development can take it to the higher level.!

Have been using it for a number of years. Easy to use and fast.

Its really bad plus very slow... What kind of web browser this?

It has mail client that allows you to work and browse without leaving the Browser, just like old Opera

22 Vivaldi

Vivaldi seemed promising at first, but it's probably the slowest browser I've used (it seems that Chromium-based browsers in general are pretty sluggish; use Firefox instead).

Safe, Most customizable, Most tools, Most codec-supported built-in, Fast
Just improving and has some bugs, If they fix Vivaldi's bugs and bring back Opera Classic space to it, No browser can be compared to it, Opera was Creative Browser of world ( all Speed Dial, Tabbed Interface, Tab managing, Session Managing etc ) was invent of Opera and its Download manager worked like a pro DM like IDM or DAP and has Bookmark manager. Vivaldi is most look a like browser

The way Opera was when they were Opera 12. And its always improving.

First try looking good, nice interface and fast.

23 Epic

Epic is a very niche browser that uses the same 'Chromium' engine that powers Google Chrome. However, Epic is relentlessly focused on privacy, with built-in ad blockers, anti-browser fingerprinting technology and a selection of free VPN options that help to stop ad tracking. Epic lacks the polish and style of other browsers (sometimes it can be downright slow) but if you are obsessive about your personal privacy, Epic may be worth a try.

I've had it a week or more and I am impressed to say the least. The no tracking ability is very good and I find being able to see who has set cookies etc, in other browsers I use is very handy, enabling me to clean them up. I feel safe with this one. Full marks...!

SUPERB, REALLY QUICK... Get one to know it, also the speed is part of the browser a lot of Indian language setting, instant is the word of epic and epic it is

I used this for a while, and I liked it at first, until I realized how slow it is. And by that, I mean Slower than Internet Explorer 6.

24 Links

This browsers is superb. On first time when I thought that it is useless but my thought was not good.

25 Stainless

A fast, easy third party browser that can replace any popular browser in a snap! You can try it today if you want. It is a free and lightweight browser, so don't get any worries.

Open source now too.
