Web Browsers

According to Wikipedia:

web browser is a software application which enables a user to display and interact with text, images, videos, music and other information typically located on a Web page at a website on the World Wide Web or a local area network.

I’ve been using Apple’s Safari at home since I made the switch to Mac in 2003.  At work I was forced to use Explorer until Firefox came along in 2004.  When Apple announced Safari for Windows in 2007, I immediately switched over.  You might say I’m an Apple Fanboy.

Here are the Top 5 in no particular order.  Most have similar features such as bookmarks, tabs, searching, private browsing and password management.  I’ve attached videos to each browser so you can see the different features each has.

1. Apple Safari

2. Mozilla Firefox

3. Windows Explorer

4. Google Chrome

5. Opera Software
