Types of Browser.

The Safari
There are many more, I just listed 5.


(Strength and Weaknesses)
Comparison between IE, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome and Safari.

Internet Explorer
  • The most widely used Internet browser. 
  • The most common reason for being first is because it comes bundled with every version of Windows and users can simply update to new versions when they become available. 
  • Slowest than the others.
  • IE has the greatest amount of security vulnerabilities among these four browsers. IE became the target for virus because it was in ranking no.1 for the first most widely use of web browser.

  • The second widely used browser.
  • Has a wider selection of add-ons. 
  • Better at handling code errors and problems while loading a web page.

  • Easy to use and can run large application. 
  • Extremely fast. 
  • Also has a security problem but it safer than Mozilla Firefox and IE. 

  • Today less used web browser but most efficient. 
  • It is not as easily overloaded.
