What Is the Best & Fastest Browser? Browser Reviews:
Browsers are like vehicles, you want to travel fast, securely and in style with lots of cool features. Test-drive new browsers and observe their performances.
The browser I use depends on my journey. A change of browser can result in better performance, faster page loading and videos that buffer seamlessly. If you do decide to use different browsers, you'll soon notice how different they each perform, from surfing the web, plug-ins, extensions, page scrolling to variations in performance and speed.

What is the best and fastest browser?
What's good for the goose, may not be good for the gander. Let's say John and Jane test drives every available browser. John may decide that Firefox is the best browser while Jane is sure that Internet Explorer is the best. Who is correct? Answer: Both! That's because the best browser is the one that meets their needs and more importantly, their devices.
For example. If every member of your household had the same PC and specifications, they would still never agree on which browser is the best. Why? Because each PC user will have their desktop customised with fancy visual gimmicks and so on. The add-ons and tool-bars on each browser the user have, as well as many other factors which will decide the speed of a browser on similar computer specifications.
Testing browsers on different computers will invariably have different results due to each PCs processor speed. The amount of Ram each one has, and the amount of free disk space on each hard drive.
One of the most common browsers used today is Internet Explorer. Many people think there are no others - but there are, and better. So, what exactly is the best and fastest browser?

Having the right browser makes using the Internet easier, because not all browsers are compatible with every website you visit. Most times you won't even realise what you're not seeing.
Each browser will have tools and gimmicks that are unique. Whichever new browser you decide to instal and use, never uninstall any existing browsers your PC has, because it's best to keep it for when you're having problems with any new browser you've installed.
What is the best browser for a Mac is a common question? Camino, Firefox, Flock and Opera all perform well on Mac machines, but overall the best browser for Mac and IOS users is Safari. Again, it's all about user preference. Try them and see what you prefer.

Microsoft Edge Reviews - previously called Windows Internet Explorer
Edge, by Microsoft is available for Windows 10. Edge has had major improvements than its predecessor, and about time too!

What is the Best & Fastest Browser? My Answer.
I cannot fault Opera, or say, hand-on-heart, any particular browser is superior.
And just like a car, no single car is ideal for everyone regardless of its speed, size and colour. As I mentioned about John and Jane, everyone is different. John wants two seats. Jane wants six. Jane wants ease-of-use - parent controls - and the fluidity and smoothness when scrolling pages. John prefers a browser with Incognito browsing, easy to customise, and a wide range of extension.
Trying to compare each browser using the "on-line browser speed test websites" was not worth the time or energy. When I tested all five browsers, one day/hour Opera was the fastest, then next, Edge, and then Chrome a day/minute later. They could have all been correct at that time because browser updates and improvements happen hourly! This has been the case over the years, trying to test every browser.
No browser developer or advertiser will ever say, "We are the best" - "we are the fastest."
There are five major browsers. All you need to do is try them. Variety IS the spice of life.
UPDATE: The poll below suggests that Firefox is the best. Other users have voted for another browser to be the best. This proves it's all about individuality.
