1. Safari

1.1. Pros

1.1.1. Safari is very pretty, especially on Mac OS X Lion.

1.1.2. The one feature it has, that the others don’t have, which I think is noteworthy is “Safari Reader.”

1.2. Cons

1.2.1. Safari for Windows, well, was never expected to do too well.

1.2.2. Once you get past its pretty looks you’re left with a pretty ordinary Web browser.

2. Opera

2.1. Pros

2.1.1. It includes its own mail client, and file, message, and music-sharing service, and a built-in BitTorrent client.

2.1.2. Opera wants to be more than just a Web browser.

2.2. Cons

2.2.1. It would take minutes before it would successfully sync between systems.

2.2.2. Opera is still loved a lot, by a select set of users, but again its market share is sadly languishing at a dismal 5%.

3. Explorer

3.1. Pros

3.1.1. It's good for browser testing.

3.1.2. Internet Explorer also has an Automatic Crash Recovery.

3.2. Cons

3.2.1. Internet Explorer is also known to get a lot of viruses.

3.2.2. Hackers know the system, and know it very well.

4. Chrome

4.1. Pros

4.1.1. The latest version of Chrome, just out, is amazingly fast.

4.1.2. Chrome is based on open-source code so its problems will always be easy to find and then fix.

4.2. Cons

4.2.1. Chrome still does not work correctly with certain websites.

4.2.2. Google knows what you search, what you read, what people visit a site, what sites you visit etc.

5. Firefox

5.1. Pros

5.1.1. Firefox, even now, has more extensions and add-ons than any other browser.

5.1.2. Firefox 8 is the version you want.

5.2. Cons

5.2.1. Its performance, I’m sorry to say hasn’t gotten any better though.

5.2.2. Firefox 6 and 7 just kept locking up over and over again.
