This gives you many options when it comes to selecting the ideal browser, and the myriad of choices may make it difficult to choose. Here are some of the pros and cons of the four popular web browsers.
By just about any metric, Google Chrome has been the browser of choice for most internet users over the last couple years. It’s easy to use and its graphics interface has a low profile. However, if you want to customize Chrome with extensions and apps, there are more than enough options.
