    1. Maxthon
    2. Firefox
    3. Opera

    In my experiences I would say Firefox is the best, and with all its additional extensions and such, it's just a great browser. Also Firefox is safer than using a IE based browser like Maxthon.

    Opera is a close second to FF IMO.

    Also K-Meleon is nice, and fast. :)

    Netscape's new beta looks promising, but after reading the EULA I wouldn't touch it with a ten foot pole. Maybe when it comes out of beta, we'll see, personally I don't like being spied on.

    All others are for the birds IMO. ;)

    Best: Firefox (hands down no competition)
    Runner up: Maxthon

    Fastest: Maxthon
    Runner Up: Firefox (only with the speed tweak though)

    Its an Internet Explorer based browser but it has an infininate array of extra features.

    I use this for I.E only sites and Firefox for all others and i am mor than satisfied.

    Try it its free.

    Nothing to beat the security and speed of Firefox. However, some sites arent fully functional on it.
    If you need a two in one browser, try Netscape 8. It has both the IE engine and the Gecko engine of Firefox. It allows you to choose which rendering engine you want to use for a particular webpage.

    I'm always having a problem choosing between Opera and Firefox. :rolleyes:
    For me the latest Opera beta is really great and I'm impatiently waiting for the release.
    I've used MyIE2 in the past and liked it very much, so I'll give Maxthon a run for his money. :D

    For me Opera (beta) & Firefox are really 1st place browsers. ;)

    In Opera Vs Firefox...
    Opera uses minimal resources and doesnt require many plugins.
    Firefox has better site compatibility.
     
  11. On *nix, Mozilla/Firefox is probably the most widely used, though Konqueror is not bad either.

    On Windows, you might actually want to choose Opera over Firefox, due to Firefox's more widespread use and currently looser security status according to Secunia. Then again, there might have been something about the text-based ad option sending some stuff to the Opera people... Not sure if I remember, it's been a while since I used Opera.

    I've also heard of something called Deepnet Explorer, which I am not in the least familiar with. It does claim to be "the first browser to foil phishers", which makes me a bit suspicious. Oh yes, it also includes P2P software that connects to Gnutella, which doesn't exactly look like a security improvement... :p
     
  12. Oh wait a minute... Deepnet is an IE shell. Forget it, it's not secure at all.

    GOOD GRIEF, BigC, don't tell me that you test browsers as often as you test anti-virus!? :D

    Ronjor, do you use any kind of adblocker with K-Meleon?

    Thanks,

    I have used Kmeleon but it is a little spartan for my taste's, It is probably a good browser but it just doesn't do anything for me. ;)
