The browser is the cornerstone of the modern Internet. Despite the fact that most users understand absolutely nothing about programming or information security, they are very fond of arguing smartly about "security holes", "memory leaks" and other important things. The lightest browser is very popular. More precisely, a discussion of the best contenders for this title.
So, let's make another contribution to the fertile topic of "browser wars". What browser is the most suitable for traveling around the world wide web? Ask any computer-savvy user about this and you will immediately receive a single and very categorical answer, and the very product that a particular person uses will be recognized as the best.
Unfortunately, you won't find that "light browser" so easily. Here you need your own experience. If you don't have one, let's briefly discuss the most popular options ontoday.
So, the brainchild of Microsoft, IE 10. Contrary to the forecasts of skeptics and pessimists, this is quite a decent, for once really quite a smart browser! Beginners are captivated by its simplicity and the fact that it comes with the system. The disadvantages include vulnerability to various kinds of "bars", panels and poor Internet. With the low speed of the latter, communication with IE soon turns into slow torture in every sense. In addition, there is no regular ad blocker, which allows you to "enjoy" the Internet in all its wild beauty.
Let's move on. Opera is a very good browser, the brainchild of Norwegian programmers. Until about the 10th version, it was very loved by the owners of a low-quality Internet connection (95% of the inhabitants of Russia and the former CIS). From version 11, it began to slowly but surely turn into a real “combine”, which was facilitated by a change in leadership. However, its ability to get along well with slow communication channels to this day makes the Opera a good choice and a favorite of many domestic users.
Chrome and Chrome-based browsers are, for the most part, really lightweight. The most simplified design, the minimum number of functions "in the base" and, as a result, high speed. For this Google Chrome and many advanced users fell in love.
However, another part of them cannot forgive the program just for the notorious simplification, which is partly offset by the presence of add-ons. In addition, thisthe lightest browser is also considered one of the safest, since updates are constantly released, and they are installed without the knowledge and desire of the user through the special Google Update service. For this, layout designers adore him, since they do not need to test their site on dozens of different versions.
Finally, Firefox. Browser-constructor, famous for its add-ons. Pure Fox is nothing special, but it is worth installing some updates on it … Experts joke that this way you can get not only the lightest browser, but also a new operating system to boot.
In short, there is no unity in the world of browsers, and the final choice is yours!
