Title: Interwebs - Browsers
Post by: FiahOwl on November 01, 2011, 10:05:36 AM
Welcome to one of my "Interwebs" topics.


FireFox
Pros: The speed of the browser, the simple interface and unique features such as tab groups make this a strong browser.

Cons: Firefox doesn’t offer thumbnail previews or native mouse gesture compatibility.

The Verdict: The easy-to-use, minimalist interface along with helpful tools like tab groups and the “pin as app” feature make Firefox the best browser available.


Chrome
Pros: Chrome separates each tab into its own process, protecting your system and making it the most secure browser around.

Cons: If you leave a tab idle for a period of time, it takes a while for it to refresh.

The Verdict: Chrome is built for speed, and its secure, unobtrusive operation makes it a great browser.

Explorer
Pros: Internet Explorer is the only browser to offer every technical support feature we looked for.

Cons: As the most common browser, most malicious attacks take advantage of Internet Explorer’s security holes.

The Verdict: While it competes well in speed and functionality, its security flaws make it less appealing.

Chrome, because it cuts the crap, and gives you an address bar & tabs. That's all you need. he address bar is also a mini-Google. Also, you get a very wide view of the page due to no extra toolbars.

Plus, it's fast.

Chrome.

I don't agree Explorer is fast, it's horribly slow imo.

Your argument is invalid

Hmm, weren't all browsers used to having many, ridiculous rows of never-used buttons and stuff, taking space from the websites, until some time after Chrome?
It looks like Internet Explorer 9 or whatever version it is, and apparently also FireFox are really just copying Chrome.

I have like 2 Hidden Toolbars i never use. There is nothing but a search bar and tabs on my Internet Explorer. Internet explorer still has those buttons, and so does Firefox. i just choose to disable them unlike all those shopping moms.

Your Firefox - 67 pixels
My Chrome - 60 pixels

EDIT: And now it's zero pixel, because I'm in full screen.

Your screen size might be different.

I know it is possible to do in the new versions of IE.
There's another reason why it is space inefficient - it keeps the window line at the top unused for tabs or anything, but only lets it have those three window buttons.
I see it also has an option for the favorite bar, which is designed like Chrome's bookmark bar. But back when I changed to Chrome one of the reasons was because of the ridiculous sidebar for bookmarks, taking a lot of the website space.
They may have improved what made me change to Chrome, but I wouldn't bother coming back, simply because I've gotten used to the look of Chrome. And Chrome is still noticeably faster.

Your screen size might be different.
Computers may have different speeds, therefore, the speed of a browser doesn't matter. Or what? :P

Imo it's terrible. Having to open a menu, then go to a bar inside the menu to get your bookmarks.
In Chrome I have them fixed in folders in a line below the URL bar. But I assume Firefox can do that as well.

Chrome all the way! Firefox is good, but it's very often laggy and very prone to breaking it's scripts when I'm doing multiple things.
