Chrome vs. Firefox vs. Internet Explorer – which one is best?
Since Google Chrome’s appearance in ’08, the architecture of browsers has undergone a change. Chrome has brought in a fresh breath of new standards both interms of speed and design. But that was then, in 2014 – however, key competitors of Google Chrome – Firefox and Internet Explorer have upped their game. All of the browsers now provide more-than-adequate support for the new HTML5 standard for website coding. Besides that, page-rendering speed, extension support, customizability, browsing helps like bookmark and tab managers, privacy, and security features have reduced the gap between the three top contenders, which has only benefitted consumers.
