Opera

Pros:

Very strict, adherence to CSS/XHTML

a new "free" version for education

Tabbed browsing, sessions, "wand" password manager, pop-up blocking

Cons:

VERY strict adherence to CSS/XHTML. (This can prove to be very tedious for web designers and developers.

Downloading the education version invloves filling out an application and waiting for a password from opera.

has web developer tools extensions, but they are difficult to find, download and access quickly

Chrome

Pros:

has a multiprocess architecture, protects your from having a bad Web page or application take your browser down.

Safari

Pros:

Built into the Operating System

Doesn't have the kind of security problems that plague IE on Windows

User style sheets ("Pimp my Safari")

Cons:

RSS feature not yet available

has web developer tools implemented via JavaScript "Bookmarklets", but poorly organized and difficult to use compared with FireFox's similar wed developer extension

can apply skins and customize GUI using JavaScript "bookmarklets," however, this is somewhat tedious to effect and limited in range

Firefox

Pros:

One product across platforms

Intuitive and streamlined GUI: easy to apply skins and rearrange icons\

User scripts which lets users change not only how a site looks, but also how it functions

Cons:

Trails IE greatly in overall market share

Recently released as a version 1.0 product

Explorer

Pros:

Only browser that works with Windows Updates (via web)

Speedy browser for high majority of sites

The "default" option when a site doesn't load properly (granted this is the site's fault, but still a plus for those who want/ need to get there

Cons:

no popup blocking for Win2k or XP SP1 users

Very little development for standards- compliance and innovation

no tabbed browsing
