When it comes to choosing a Web browser today, we're spoiled for choice. Major new release Internet Explorer 9 and Firefox 4 have brought these two big name browsers to near parity with upstart Google Chrome, which though a relatively new entrant into the browser market has taken the browser industry by storm.
The current crop of surfing software all include plenty of speed, minimised interfaces for a better look at that site you're browsing, and support for the emerging HTML5 standard markup language. Each brings a unique twist, though. The new browser from Microsoft Internet Explorer 9, adds hardware acceleration for graphics-intensive sites and arguably the best privacy tool to prevent tracking of your Web activities by marketing sites. Firefox offers a Panorama view of your tabs and a refreshed version of what's still the most powerful set of customizations, along with the ability to sync bookmarks, history, settings, and more. 

Google Chrome 10 : 
Chrome Instant means your Web page is ready to read before you finish typing the address. This, its speed, minimalist design, and advanced support for HTML5 have deservedly been attracting more and more users to the browser. The latest version adds an improved settings interface, and even more speed and security.

Internet Explorer 9 :
Microsoft's new browser is faster, trimmer, more compliant with HTML5—a major improvement over its predecessor. It also brings some unique capabilities like tab-pinning and hardward acceleration, but only Windows 7 and Vista users need apply.

Mozilla Firefox 4 :
Firefox 4 gets Mozilla back into the game. This lean, fast, customizable browser can hold its own against any competitor, and it offers graphics hardware acceleration. My favourite OpenSource Browser. It has some cool features like in-private browsing and has Chatzilla add-on that allows you to attach yourself to irc-network.

  • The Firefox project has changed its names several times. It was renamed from “Phoenix” to “Firebird” because of trademark issues with Phoenix Technologies. Mozilla Firebird then became Mozilla Firefox on February 9, 2004.
  •  There is an on-going belief that “Mozilla” and “Firefox” are the same.  And as we discussed a while back, Firefox, adopted its name in 2004.  Mozilla on the other hand, is the one that represents the company, Mozilla Corporation which develops both Firefox and the Mozilla Suite.  The development of the Mozilla Suite ended in 2005 and is now known as the Sea Monkey.
  • As an open source, the Mozilla Firefox is not entirely free as other would presume.  Some of its elements are covered by EULA (End-Users License Agreement);

 Now its time for some Internet Explorer jokes (The Beating Bag of Browser)


So it seems that Open-Source softwares Chrome and Firefox have beaten Internet-Explorer black and blue. Finishing on a lighter note, I came
 across a funny T-shirt, which said :-
