Firefox

Pros

Mozilla has upped the ante to fix a severe security vulnerability in Firefox 3.6 which affects several users. The vulnerability in question, was reported by security researcher Evgeny Legerov last month.

Pros

Mozilla has accelerated its timetable and released Firefox 3.6.2 ahead of schedule.

Cons

However, it now looks like the entire Mozilla mobile team has taken it to heart, and have decided that they will not develop for Windows Phone 7 until a proper development platform is provided.

Cons

This is definitely bad news for Firefox lovers who have been waiting in anticipation for the Firefox browser on Windows Mobile based devices.

Opera

Pros

Has its own widgets – small web applications that start from within Opera - and historically a trailblazer, leading the way with features that are now common on modern browsers including tabbed browsing, speed dial (web page previews for navigation) and mobile browsing.

Pros

More of an internet suite than just a browser (particularly the latest version)

Cons

Has its own widgets – small web applications that start from within Opera

Cons

The latest version, 10.10, was released after we had finished testing, but is notable as it has several major improvements.

Chrome

Pros

Like Safari, Chrome uses the open source WebKit rendering engine originally developed as KHTML under Linux and later adopted by Apple.

Pros

Google’s open source browser, released in late 2008. Chrome’s emphasis is on speed, simplicity and style, using layout themes and an uncluttered look.

Cons

Chrome still doesn’t have a print preview feature.

Cons

Google has also opened Chrome to developers to create third-party extensions.

Pros

powered by the speedy WebKit engine and with mobile versions for the iPhone and iPod Touch.

Cons

Safari incorporates the look and feel of Mac OS X with the Cover Flow

Cons

Define: Brower

A web browser is a software application for retrieving, presenting, and traversing information resources on the World Wide Web. An information resource is identified by a Uniform Resource Identifier (URI) and may be a web page, image, video, or other piece of content.[1] Hyperlinks present in resources enable users to easily navigate their browsers to related resources.

Explorer

Pros

Its massive market share means web developers have to take compatibility with IE into account when creating any website.

Pros

With the Microsoft behemoth behind it, Internet Explorer is probably the baseline for web browsing.

Cons

the latest version of IE runs each tab as a separate process to boost stability and security and also features a secure mode for “private browsing”.

Cons

Microsoft’s Mac version was discontinued several years ago
