What is the Best & Fastest Browser? Internet Browser Reviews: 2017
The difference between a "browser" and a "search engine".
In response to the video above. A "browser" and "a search engine" are two different things. a "browser" is one of the following... Firefox, Internet Explorer, Opera, Safari or Google Chrome etc. These are not to be confused with the hundreds of different 'search engines' you could be using such as Google, which is the most popular and best, followed by, Bing and Yahoo which are very good followed by Ask and AOL which are not my cup of tea.
Note: You can use any search engine with any browser you like.

What exactly is the best and fastest browser? The many things to take into consideration...
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 performances and more.

What's good for the goose may not be good for the gander. Let's say John and Jane test drive 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 device.
It's all about individual preference – 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 will have different amounts of hard drive space/capacity/shortage, etc. Each PC will have their desktop customized with fancy visual gimmicks and so on. The add-ons, and tool-bars each has, as well as many other factors all determine the speed of any browser on your computer.
One of the most common browser used today is Internet Explorer. Many people think there are no others - but there are and much better. So, what exactly is the best and fastest browser? These questions are very common, an d as you can see, have many answers...
Having a variety of browsers installed makes using the Internet easier. Because all browsers are not compatible with every website you visit. Most times you won't even realize what your not seeing. Each browser has tools and other gimmicks that are unique which makes life surfing much quicker and slicker..
Whatever new browsers you decide to use, never un-install browsers that you don't use. It's best t to keep them for a rainy day especially when you're have problems with the new browsers you're using. Having, and using different browsers on your PC is not a problem provided you have enough disc space.
What is the best browser for a Mac: Camino, Firefox, Flock and Opera all perform well on Mac machines, but overall the best browser for Mac and IOS users is Safari.

Opera is a highly respected Web browser from Norway that competes very well among its competitors. It offers many unique features such as using Opera with your voice. Its mouse gestures always make navigating back and forward pages handy. The thousands of widgets and third party extensions are very useful and cool. The progress bar on the address bar lets you see pages loaded from the site. The Unite feature that allows users to file share is very impressive. More importantly, Opera has improved its security, allowing a safer and more stable surfing experience. Overall, it's a very good looking browser, performs very well and is a must have in your arsenal of browsers.

Safari Web browser developed by Apple, Inc is not the most popular browser, but it does have a nice interface and a decent number of extensions to boot. Sending email links or live Web pages couldn't be easier. The history function is very helpful as it uses (iTunes style) cover-flow to scan through large thumbnails of the pages you have visited. It's particularly useful when you can't remember the URL but you can remember an image or what it looks like. It is limited in customization features, and trying to bookmark a Web page could be easier. I believe Safari could do much better especially being an "Apple" product. Further development and more time could make Safari a better browser and could be a contender in the browser wars. Safari works on Windows, Macs and other applications such as Ipad and mobile devices.
- Supports Mac and Windows: Safari is also available for PCs / Tablet's / Android / ios 7 / iphone / ipod touch.
Google Chrome Reviews
