Browser:a software application for retrieving information and presenting it in the world wide web.

opera

Pros:

The program download is much smaller and simpler than downloading Internet Explorer, http://ezinearticles.com/?Opera-Browser---Pros-and-Cons&id=3103923

This program is perfect for those computers that tend to have slow or poor connections because it downloads and shows pictures super easy.

It also has a better safety program against viruses.

Cons:

Internet Explorer is integrated when you download this app.

It is its own separate company so you must download it. It does not come with any computer you buy.

Explorer

Pros:

If one window in a tabbed environment crashes, the other tabs do not crash simultaneously., http://www.webopedia.com/TERM/o/operating_system.html

An RSS feed on your favorites bar will indicate to you any updated content on sites that you have listed as favorites.

Cons:

It uses up a lot of memory on the hard drives.

Some sites can not really be displayed correctly.

Safari

Pros:

You can see the webpages you have visited previously. So it has a good history viewing., http://reviews.cnet.com/browsers/apple-safari/1707-3514_7-20821886.html

You can easily switch between tabs and have a few open.

Cons:

It does not have that great of a security program unless you tell it to and if it will work enough for you.

It automatically changes your settings without letting you know. some of those changes might not be in any good for your favor.

Chrome

Pro: It won't crash and each tab is safe and its opened on its own environment.

Pro: It has a very nice fast speed when it comes to loading a page or anything you do on it.

Con: It is only on its first beta.

Con: The drop down button is not very helpful. You can't really see your URL history.

Firefox

Pros:

The connection is super fast and it downloads pages such as Yahoo, Youtube and Facebook in just seconds.

The security is great. It does not allow much poop-outs that can damage your computer or software.

Cons:

some of the compatibility may be an issue.

Also it can have a slow start up.
