The browser battle – who was 2015’s winner?


browser-773215_1280PC World has put Google Chrome, Microsoft’s Edge and Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, and Opera to the test in a battle of internet browsers.

They’ve been tried, they’ve been tested, they’ve been simulated and a winner has prevailed.

Using the latest available version of each browser, they looked at each of them holistically. Asking questions like: How easy was each to install and set up? Does Opera make it simple to switch from Chrome?

And the winner is…Google Chrome.

That’s right the relatively new (2008) web browser has won over the critics thanks to their stable and extensible performance. The browser is said to integrate well into other services, and reveals its depths and complexity only if you actively seek it out. For that reason, Google Chrome remains the browser of choice, with Opera just behind.
