What is the Best Browser?

The Top 3 for the Windows environment is:

  1. Internet Explorer or IEbrowsers
  2. Mozilla Firefox
  3. Chrome

 

 The Areas to Review:

  1. What is the most Popular
  2. Boot Time
  3. Memory Usage
  4. Security

The Most Popular is IE because the main reason is it is installed on all machines as the default. Also most basic users do not know of any other way to use the web. After IE the most popular is Chrome and then close behind it is Firefox. with that said let's move onto the important aspects of the browser.

Boot Time is how fast will it load when you select the button to open. all open within 1 second however the fastest is Firefox. Firefox is .o2 seconds faster than the other 2. Both Chrome and IE are about the same in this area.

 

Memory Usage is also a big concern, how much does it slow your computer down once it is open and while you are using it. Firefox is also going to be the best one here. Firefox runs at a 400KB usage where as the other 2 are right around 600KB.

 

Now for the most important one. Security, is or should be the most critical one of all. Again Firfox blows both out of the water clearly here. Second to Firefox is Chrome however there is some significant concerns between the 2 and then there is the worse one by far which is IE.

 

So the clear winner is Firefox. However Google has so much of the market in other areas as well as popularity it still remains to be the front runner. So beware all what seems to be the most popular is not always the best choice. For a common user or a developers standpoint, anything you get with chrome you can get with firefox.

We have the Apple and the Samsung!

They Say that Apple is still the top smartphone maker in the U.S., according to NPD Group, outshining Samsung during the first quarter.

"After some release of pent-up demand from customers adopting the iPhone 4S, coupled with the company's strength in the holiday season, Apple's share fell in the first quarter, as we've often see it do in the quarter following its introduction of a new handset," Ross Rubin, executive director for NPD's Connected Intelligence, said in a statement. "Now that the iPhone is available on Sprint, though, the increased carrier coverage has created a higher baseline for Apple's share than we have seen in the past."
