Before coming up with an answer to this question, let me point it out that my personal favourite remains to be Google Chrome. I have several other browsers installed my laptop, and Android device, some of them being UC Browser, Firefox, Opera and Dolphin Browser. Having said that, let me point out the plus and minus points of a few select browsers so that you can decide the browser that best suits you.
Chrome is by any standard the most robust and efficient browsers you can ever lay your hands on. The features that make it one of the greatest choices include its stability, cross-platform nature and better tweaks. The software comes with easily installable extensions. It also offers you several options to make it more efficient.
The browser, however, comes with its own set of issues. It is one of resource hungry application. If your device has less RAM, you may have issues running it on your laptop or PC.
One of the latest entrants in the browser space, it is the default browser on your Windows 10 machines. One of the most important aspects that go with Edge is the seamless integration of Edge with Windows 10. This would provide you a easy to use interface. It has been a quicker browser. It also does away the need for vulnerable protocols like ActiveX. The reading mode that is integrated within the tool would be the best for visiting complex websites.
For the uninitiated, Chromium is what Google Chrome is based on. It comes pre installed with Linux installations. You may miss some of the salient features of Chrome, but it has a plus point that you can install any third party extensions. It offers you limited media codec support. There is no automatic update option either. However, you will stay always up to date with the latest builds available for downloads from time to time.
In my view, Opera is one of the best when it comes to the best browser experience, well next to Chrome. It does launch faster and offers a great UI experience. One of the features I like on Opera browser is the Opera Turbo feature that it offers you. It lets you route your website through Opera servers, and thus makes your browsing a breezy experience. This can be helpful if you have issues with your broadband speeds.
It also comes with an ad blocker ( You can disable it if you wish). The Turbo mode helps you save on your data if you are on a limited data plan.
Initially it was the top name among the browsers, but now has been dwarfed by Chrome. One of the major reasons could be the outdated design. However, the software is regularly updated and has a specific extension store. It works with many bechmark satisfactorily, yet there have been reports that it has sluggish operation in some rare cases.
Well, that was a small analysis of the top browsers currently available. Please note that I am not talking about some lesser used ones like Vivaldi Browser, Internet Explorer 11 ( anyone knows that it still exists?), UC Browser and Tor browser among others. From the quality, functionality, ease of use and extensions ( and the add ons, as the case may be) point of view, my best options would be ( exactly in that order) Google Chrome, Opera and Firefox.
Live....and Let Live!
