Today, if you are using Windows, Microsoft enthustically pushes a web browser called Internet Explorer right on to your system. But you wonder, is there an internet browser that is better? Read on, to discover our take on the browser wars.
Ever since the internet started up, web browsers have become more and more important and diverse. At first there was Netscape and of course, Internet Explorer. Things got so tense between Microsoft and the developers of Netscape that Microsoft was even sued at one point. However, as time progressed, Netscape disbanded, and Internet Explorer rose as the browser of choice. Believe it or not, that was just the start of the browser wars.
Netscape's disbanded project was used by a newer group of programmers, transforming it in to something called Mozilla Firefox, a name that is familiar even to this present day. Thus began the second stage of browser competition, with Firefox and Internet Explorer being the main shareholders.
However, by the time of Windows Vista/7, a newer browser was developed by Google: Chrome. Chrome's speed and flexibility attracted a lot of the younger generation to adopt it as their go to web browser, and soon after, the majority of the internet; even to this day.
Which one should I use?
There is a reason why Google Chrome became so popular, and that reason was speed, flexibility and effectiveness. Chrome is notably faster than Internet Explorer and Firefox, and the ability to install diverse extensions such as Adblock, really made an impression on trendy tech-savvy users. Furthermore, Chrome's effectiveness of loading multiple webpages, and operating smoothly without any noticeable lag, reaped users that possessed slower and older devices.
Lastly, Chrome allows users to personalize every device that runs it. How? When users login to their Google account, their history, bookmarks, passwords are automatically synced with Chrome; allowing you to take your web browser literally anywhere on the planet.
Although, Internet Explorer has gotten better throughout the times, and Mozilla too, Chrome's flexibility, effectiveness, portability and ultimately speed makes it the winner so far.
