Browsers by Mind Map: Browsers

1. Explorer

1.1. Pros

1.1.1. As of December 2011, Internet Explorer has the lead when it comes to market share and is used by about 39% of all Internet users http://www.infocarnivore.com/2012/03/05/latest-developments-in-the-web-browser-wars-2012/

1.1.2. is far improved over its earlier versions. Many have switched back to IE9 now. IE9 today, is considered by may to be one of the most secure and fast browsers! http://www.thewindowsclub.com/browser-wars-2012-comparison-top-5-popular-browsers-chart-poll

1.2. Cons

1.2.1. For web developers everywhere, IE6 has always been an issue. The website can look beautiful in every browser except IE6. http://blog.tbhcreative.com/2012/03/browser-wars-which-browser-is-better.html

1.2.2. Internet Explorer is also known to get a lot of viruses. The IE team at Microsoft fixes bugs on a fixed schedule. They may know about a virus issue and take six months before they actually fix it. Hackers know the system, and know it very well. http://blog.tbhcreative.com/2012/03/browser-wars-which-browser-is-better.html

2. Chrome

2.1. Pros

2.1.1. Chrome Instant means your Web page is ready to read before you finish typing the address. This, its speed, minimalist design, and advanced support for HTML5 have deservedly been attracting more and more users to the browser. http://dreamdth.com/Thread-Article-TOP-Browsers-2012-Review-Download

2.1.2. Another major point in Chrome’s favor is that the latest line of Android phones and tablets have been released with the Chrome internet browser http://www.infocarnivore.com/2012/03/05/latest-developments-in-the-web-browser-wars-2012/

2.2. Cons

2.2.1. For some people, privacy is a major issue with Google Chrome. Google knows what you search, what you read, what people visit a site, what sites you visit etc. With a Google browser you can’t hide anything anymore. http://blog.tbhcreative.com/2012/03/browser-wars-which-browser-is-better.html

2.2.2. Chrome still does not work correctly with certain websites http://blog.tbhcreative.com/2012/03/browser-wars-which-browser-is-better.html

3. FireFox

3.1. Pros

3.1.1. Firefox has also been said to be safer from hackers and viruses than Internet Explorer. http://blog.tbhcreative.com/2012/03/browser-wars-which-browser-is-better.html

3.1.2. Roughly 38% percent of consumers use Mozilla Firefox http://www.sign-up.to/blog/2012/02/10/browser-wars-2012/

3.2. Cons

3.2.1. Firefox has crashed on me the most out of every browser http://blog.tbhcreative.com/2012/03/browser-wars-which-browser-is-better.html

3.2.2. Mozilla hasn’t fixed the speed issues or the resource problems http://www.techrepublic.com/blog/hiner/goodbye-firefox-hello-chromium/8085?tag=mantle_skin;content

4. Safari

4.1. Pros

4.1.1. The one feature it has, that the others don’t have, which I think is noteworthy is “Safari Reader.” In this mode, Safari removes all the images, ads, and other junk and just leaves you with the text. http://www.zdnet.com/blog/networking/which-of-the-big-five-web-browsers-is-the-best-review/1612?pg=3&tag=content;siu-container

4.1.2. Now in the mobile world, Safari is the best Web browser around http://www.zdnet.com/blog/networking/which-of-the-big-five-web-browsers-is-the-best-review/1612?pg=3&tag=content;siu-container

4.2. Cons

4.2.1. once you get past its pretty looks you’re left with a pretty ordinary Web browser. http://www.zdnet.com/blog/networking/which-of-the-big-five-web-browsers-is-the-best-review/1612?pg=3&tag=content;siu-container

4.2.2. Safari is the best Web browser around. But, on PCs, well, you can just do better. http://www.zdnet.com/blog/networking/which-of-the-big-five-web-browsers-is-the-best-review/1612?pg=3&tag=content;siu-container

5. Opera

5.1. Pros

5.1.1. Opera wants to be more than just a Web browser. It includes its own mail client, and file, message, and music-sharing service, and a built-in BitTorrent client. http://www.zdnet.com/blog/networking/which-of-the-big-five-web-browsers-is-the-best-review/1612?pg=3&tag=content;siu-container

5.1.2. Like the other current browsers Opera is fast, compliant with HTML5, and spare of interface. Long an innovator, recently it's added unique things like Unite, which turns the browser into a server, and Turbo, which speeds up the Web on slow connections through caching http://dreamdth.com/Thread-Article-TOP-Browsers-2012-Review-Download

5.2. Cons

5.2.1. On top of that it includes Speed Dial, a page that lets you access live Web pages and widgets. That sounds good, but like many similar schemes I’ve seen over the years, in practice it doesn’t work that well. http://www.zdnet.com/blog/networking/which-of-the-big-five-web-browsers-is-the-best-review/1612?pg=3&tag=content;siu-container

5.2.2. Opera also, like most of the other Web browsers, includes automatic bookmarks, passwords, and settings synchronization via its Opera Link cloud. It sounds great, but it didn’t work that well for me. It would take minutes before it would successfully sync between systems. http://www.zdnet.com/blog/networking/which-of-the-big-five-web-browsers-is-the-best-review/1612?pg=3&tag=content;siu-container
