Firefox 4 vs Internet Explorer 9 vs Opera 11 vs Chrome 10. Which one is for you?

A really quick review:

Firefox 4 vs Internet Explorer 9 vs Opera 11 vs Chrome 10. Which one is for you?

Firefox 4 – If you are an add-ons craze. Almost all the websites are rendered well by FF4. Ex-Firefox fans, time to return. No one tried to hack this browser at Pwn2Own because it is so good.

Google Chrome 10 – Really fast. People still go to Firefox or Internet Explorer when they cannot view the page properly. No one tried to hack this browser at Pwn2Own because it is so good.

Internet Explorer 9 – Fastest of the pack but no add-ons. It works only on Windows 7 and Windows Vista and that sucks.

Opera 11 – Uses very low memory and gives the aforementioned browsers a run for their money.

Now for a detailed review:

New Features: Firefox 4 wins! Check this out!

Speed: According to the official Sun JavaScript benchmark test, IE9 wins, closely followed by Firefox 4 and Chrome (these results keep changing) but in the real world scenario all the four browsers are head-on and when you are using a fast connection you just won’t notice the speed difference.

Screen Real-Estate: IE9 wins this category but then the space to accommodate too many tabs is a big drawback faced by IE9.

Performance: IE 9 wins, followed by Chrome, Firefox and Opera in a tie.

Start-Up Speed: Chrome and Opera are very closely tied. In real world, you will not notice the little differences in start-up time between these two browsers. They are closely followed by IE 9 and Firefox 4.

Light on Memory: Opera 11 is really light. If you are low on memory (512 MB RAM) Opera is the best for you.

Compatibility: Firefox 4 wins. There are websites that the other browsers do not render properly. If you want to see all the websites in a proper way, no other browser is better than Firefox 4.

Overall Verdict: It is up to your needs and how much you browser. Personally I use Firefox 4 with the FxChrome theme that makes my Firefox 4 look like  Chrome.

Best Browser without Add-ons: Internet Explorer 9 is a clear winner.

Best Browser for a Developer: Firefox 4 is miles ahead of any other browser on the planet.

  1. Is this a poll or is there an article here I’m not seeing?

    I came here to read an article, but there’s no text!

    1. Check the file name. Is it in Bangla? Try translating the file name to english. If you get to see the name of the file that you downloaded then I can help you further.

      1. you don’t know & nothing.

        gublet .

        solved by : go to Edit>preference>Contents> fonts & colors> (for bangla) ”Solaiman lipi” should be set as Default font.

  2. Please, as a web developer, do not reccomend Internet explorer 9. It is still very bad and not compliant to the standards.
