Top 5 Internet Browsers, as voted by HITS Computing customers.
An internet browser is the tool which you use to browse the internet. The standard browser used to be Internet Explorer, however many companies have since designed their own Browsers and have publicly launched them to compete against Internet Explorer. As voted by HITS Computing customers, here are the top 5 browsers.
1. Google Chrome.
2. Microsoft Edge
The default 'browsing experience' on Windows 10, Edge is an odd one. Quite why Microsoft needs to be running a pair of browser products in tandem is beyond us. The company's reason, it seems, is that Edge represents the more user-friendly interface option while Internet Explorer scales a little better for enterprise.
3. Mozilla Firefox
Once the leader in overall popularity in the browser war, Firefox is now now a slightly sad third place. It's not clear why; while it lags behind its main competitors in terms of design, keeping the search and URL boxes separate and leaving buttons on display where others have removed them, it's regularly updated on a six-week schedule and has a raft of extensions available.
4. Microsoft Internet Explorer 11
Microsoft's browser has seen some ups and downs in its long tenure, from dominating the browser charts to languishing behind its main two competitors. This is partly an issue of choice - particularly the browser choice that Microsoft was forced to give customers.
5. Safari (Apple's browser)
Safari may be Apple's flagship browser, but you don't need to own an Apple device to use it, at least technically. There's a Windows version out there if you can find it, and it is also super-fast.
