browsersNow that you know about what a browser is, you are upgraded to the most current version and can clear your cache, determine if which browser is the best one to get optimal performance.  My Confession:  After writing the previous browser post, I discovered I needed to change my browser, too.  Hint:  You probably shouldn’t be relying on Internet Explorer.

3 Questions that Determine You Need A New Browser

How much web surfing do you do? If you only use your computer to check email, go online shopping or socialize on Facebook, there isn’t much difference between browsers. Speed and overall performance are crucial if you use run web-based software, stream video, or visit Flash-heavy sites.

How important is customization?  Firefox has many available add-ons, plug-ins and other enhancements. Users who like simplicity will find Chrome and Opera to be their favorite browsers.

How many devices do you use? If you use more than one computer, you will probably need to sync bookmarks and other features from one machine to the next. Firefox and Chrome work well for syncing across machines and from a Windows to a Mac environment.  Firefox, Safari and Opera have mobile versions compatible with smartphones and tablets.

Privacy and security features are essential. Users share lots amounts of information on the web, whether you realize it or not. Firefox, Chrome and Safari make it easy to clear browsing history and personal data.

Why Are New Browsers Better?

The browsers listed above have a number of advantages over older browsers, including:

  • Far fewer instances of crashing or freezing.
  • Much more secure from virus, malware, and browser hijacking attacks.
  • Much faster page-loading.
  • Larger page-viewing area.
  • A large variety of useful optional plugins and add-ons that add extra features to improve Web browsing.

Chrome is now taking the market share due to things like:

  • Enhanced Plugins
  • Skins and Themes
  • Fastest load times by far from any other browsers
  • Most efficient Security
  • High Stability
  • Ease of Use
  • Personality

Firefox is a good alternative to Chrome:

  • Browser most supported by developers
  • Lots of plugins for cool functionality
  • Very Secure
  • Many, many, themes
  • User familiarity

To use a different browser, you don’t have to uninstall Internet Explorer. You can use multiple browsers without problems. When you start using your new browser you will be asked if you want to set the new software as your default Web browser. Whatever browser is set as your default browser will be the browser that appears when you click on a link in an e-mail or other document.

If you decide that you don’t want to continue to use the new browser, switch back to Internet Explorer. Everyone has bookmarks (or “Favorites”, as they’re called in IE) in the browser they use regularly, moving bookmarks from the old browser to the new one is not difficult at all.  To learn how to transfer bookmarks to your new browser, check out the Browsing Better website. When you visit the page, click on the icon for the browser you’re currently using, and follow the instructions from the images that appear.

If you are used to using Internet Explorer, downloading and using a different Web browser is a big step. Spend some time learning the new interface and have fun working with a faster new browser!
