Recently I installed the major browsers (ie, chrome, firefox, maxathon, and opera) so I could compare them. This is what I found:Ie: ie gets a ton of hate but it really isn't as terrible as people think it is. The main reason I can't stand it though is the horrendous load times when viewing a site with big ads such a the minecraft forums. Other than that, and the absence of add ons, I would consider it to be alright from me everyday usage test.Chrome: Chrome is amazing. The browser is full of extensions and themes. It also has one of the greatest uses for the metro mode in windows 8. With that said, I find that the initial load time is really, really bad. This is likely due to my computer, but it was enough to make me want a new browser.Opera: Opera browser was the one I used the longest. It was fast and had everything I needed. Sadly, it struggles when it came to keeping me logged into EMC.Maxathon browser: couldn't get it to work without crashing.Firefox: Firefox is the one I am using, and will likely continue using for a while. It is fast and looks good. There are extensions and I can't find any complaints. Over all, I have no reason not to like it. Note: There was only one browser I wouldn't recommend (maxathon) and the rest were very close. They all were fast most of the time and each one did what I wanted. The browser wars aren't as distant as they used to be. Most of them seemed to work really well.Standings:1. Firefox2. Opera3. Chrome4. Ie5. maxathonHow I determined this:I simply used them for a while and checked how they were in day to day uses. I didn't use any benchmarks. This is entirely based on average usage.I may update this list as time goes on.Want me to try something else? Post it and I will try it.
