Though the Safari and Internet Explorer are good for browsing, but these have now become old fashioned. It is like living with your parents as you are born into these, and now ultimately, you need to discover the external world.

You have been using these browsers, since the time you have started to use your PC. Now in order to have the superlative knowledge, you need to spread out your e-horizons.

That comparison may not be more appropriate, as working with the Internet Explorer can be a better option.  Experimentation can be regarded as meaningful exercise, because a browser can radically change the approach, interrelated to internet.

Each of the browsers has its own characteristics and add-ons that you may like or you have never felt the need for using these.

The choice of using internet browsers is unrestrained. The most widely used are Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome, but it would be practically non-viable to unearth the diamond in the jagged.

The below is a small list to help you in your browsing journey, and optimistically it will enhance your joy of using internet.

Tab tweaks: Majority of Opera users urged the need for some more visual tab options which were lacking in earlier beta versions. So, Opera responds in its beta 3 version by putting tab placement options. Now user view his visual thumbnail tabs on the right or left side of the browser screen with placement options still there on top or bottom. You can resize your Visual Tabs. Thumbnail view is optional.

Renovated User Interface: Designer Jon Hicks always renovated user interface (UI) of Opera and this time he did it by implementing many new tweaks allowing users to run opera more efficiently.

Multilingual: Beta 3 comes with big total of 38 languages. Opera’s beta 3 efforts to design it in more easier form so that users around the world can feel more at home when online.

Crash Prevention: You are riding on a rock-solid browser with Opera’s integrated crash logger.

Turbo Speed: Opera Turbo is more refined. You will be amazed by its increased speed while browsing over your slow network connection.

Browser Wars of 2009: Firefox, Chrome, and Internet Explorer

Tags: , , , , , , , , , ,


For many weeks, I have been exploring a lot, all three of the popular Web browsers, and thus reached some conclusions. This is not any kind of review in a way; it is just what I, as a layman, who never has less than three browser windows and many tabs open simultaneously, have observed.

Google Chrome:

When Chrome first came out, I liked it very much. With version 2.0.169.1 out, I like it today also all the same.

There are two simple reasons for my liking: Its speed and security. Chrome’s V8 JavaScript engine is literary faster than fast. Only Apple‘s Safari even comes close to keeping up with Chrome. Others are nothing but a bunch of slowpokes.

Now, most of the times when you come through review articles with benchmarks the differences, in real life, are not really visible. That’s not the matter with Chrome vs. its competitors. If this was a NASCAR competition, it would be beating them to the checked flag by laps.

Chrome was the only browser hackers failed to crack in secs or minutes in the recently organized PWN2OWN hacker competition. Actually, Chrome never was busted.

Will Internet Explorer 8 Survive the Browser Wars?

Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,


After the release of Internet Explorer 8 that debuted Thursday, Microsoft tried to make her position better in the internet browser’s market but it doesn’t seem that Microsoft will be able to win that battle at all.

Browser Market Shares

As compared to users of other browsers , IE users are not running towards IE 8 to embrace it; the new release of the Web browser that debuted Thursday. According to StatCounter, there was only 0.17 percent increase in users, making the stats IE 8 users from 1.39 percent to 1.56 percent until Friday 1 p.m EDT. To this, Aodhan Cullen, CEO and founder of StatCounter, stated that “I suppose the kindest description of user reaction to IE 8′s first public outing would be underwhelming”

The situation of IE seems really worst against other browsers, for example Firefox which is also the major competitor of IE. According to StatCounter, when Firefox 3 was in its beta testing, its usage was accounted for 7.8. But in June, the official release of FireFox 3 amazed everyone and site stats increased up to 18.9 percent of web usage in just first 3 days of release. This shows that Firefox is much more famous than IE because of its usage and advanced features.
