Firefox vs Internet Explorer vs Opera

http://live.pirillo.com/ – Firefox, Internet Explorer, or Opera — which one does Chris use? None of the above! instead of one of the three major browsers, Chris uses Maxthon, which he finds to be superior, even though it uses Internet Explorer’s rendering engine.

Firefox is the flagship browser of the open source community:

The award-winning Mozilla Firefox Web browser is enjoyed by tens of millions of people worldwide, and has re-ignited innovation and competition on the Web.

Internet Explorer is no slouch:

Internet Explorer 7 provides improved navigation through tabbed browsing, web search right from the toolbar, advanced printing, easy discovery, reading and subscription to RSS feeds, and much more.

Opera may not have market share, but it provides strong competition:

Opera gives you the tools to experience the web your way. From fraud protection and tight security to quick website access and numerous customizations, Opera provides you with the Web the way it was meant to be viewed.

  1. You should definitely take a look at K-Meleon if you haven’t before. Based on the Gecko engine just like all the various versions of Netscape, Firefox, etc. Lean and fast.

  3. Here’s a 2nd vote for Maxthon – the best shell for IE browsing and it blows away the native IE7 shell – ick!

    Microsoft should have just bought Maxthon out and used their shell…but noo…had to go and develop their own inferior one. *sigh*

  5. It’s weird… very few people seem to have heard of or use K-Meleon. I think it’s pretty quick and reliable. Is it like a smaller cousin of FF or what? Never mind, I use it and in my book, it’s leaner than FF and that’s that.

  6. I am using k-meleon at this moment, and I think it is so much faster than Firefox. I switched form Seamonkey which is still my mail app. By the way, what are the reasons why you think Maxton is superior to those named above?

  7. I forgot to say, I’ve gotten so that I can’t tolerate anything slower than K-meleon (virtually instant speed.)

  8. You should try Maxthon 2.0.9 (latest version). It has everything all those others have but the only difference is you don’t have to install all those different add-ins because they are already built in and fully functional. It’s faster than IE, Firefox and Opera. I know, I’ve tried them all. Everyone who has tried Maxthon has had nothing but praise. Yes, it uses the IE core, so what? That’s what makes Maxthon the best browser out there, and it’s totally free. Try it. Give it a few weeks and I think you’ll end up agreeing. Actually, I KNOW you’ll end up agreeing and making it your default browser.

  9. Firefox : SLOW, Any IE product : Dangerous! I mean for God’s sake it’s Internet Explorer, exploit hell. Opera: SAFE, fast and quite configurable, Seamonkey: Fast…faster than Firefox definately and last but definately not least… K-MELEON: The fastest browser out there! (K-Ninja too, which is it’s sister browser, but development has stopped, it’s fast as lightening too)

    So overall, *any* IE product, regardless of “dressing” from Maxthon opens one up to various exploits. And it’s slower too.

  10. Firefox has become so slow thanks to all plugin those are tempting and one cant live w/o. It eats ram like anything too.

    IE: leave it dude.

    Opera: Obviously a head turner, it’s fast,safe,light on ram.

    will go with Opera.

    FM.

  11. Another vote for Maxthon2. It has powerful features built in, without having to collect and install a bunch of RAM-eating plugins. A great time saver, fun to use, and quite addictive.

  12. k-meleon-simply-rocks-anything-else-is-inferior->the best kept secret on the internet and hope it stays that way. WE DON’T NEED NO STUPID FANBOYS CLUBS.

  13. I am so worried lately that ie can’t open youtube. Sometimes they show in black or white but sometimes it shows picutures from youtube but can’t load it.
