Internet Explorer

Pros: With the Microsoft behemoth behind it, Internet Explorer is probably the baseline for web browsing/Its massive market share means web developers have to take compatibility with IE into account when creating any website

Cons: Has been proven as inferior to the other four web browsers through extensive testing/because Microsoft is behind it, gives less reason to improve

Safari

Pros: powered by the speedy WebKit engine and with mobile versions for the iPhone and iPod Touch/incorporates the look and feel of Mac OS X with the Cover Flow feature that lets you flip through pages of your browsing history and bookmarks and also includes tabbed browsing, page previews and private browsing

Cons:Lacking anti-phishing and smart toolbar/ Lacking extension support

Google Chrome

Pros: Each tab works independently, so if one crashes, the others don’t go down with it/Google has also opened Chrome to developers to create third-party extensions

Cons: Doesn’t have a print preview feature/borrows ideas from other open source projects

Opera

Pros: Gives you tools to do a wide range of tasks besides browsing/Widely cross-platform that has versions for the Nintendo DS and Wii games consoles

Cons: Before version 10.10, did very poor on the Acid3 test/for slow connections, downloading this program could be difficult and you may have problems getting it downloaded
