According to our research, more than 50% of Internet users worldwide are on Google Chrome these days. But as Internet Explorer showed us, market dominance doesn't necessarily mean that the product excels. Since all major desktop browsers are free, it doesn't hurt to explore your options. Let's show you the major factors to consider.
Firefox doesn't perform quite as snappily as Chrome, but it's good to have a backup, and Firefox has made strides to close the gap with better performance and a better-looking design. And, like Google, it has built-in sync, so that your desktop version of the browser will know about the bookmarks, add-ons, open tabs and browser history of your mobile version.
If you want to connect to the Tor network to increase your privacy on the web, you'll need a browser with Tor built in, rather than plugging it into Chrome or Firefox as a browser add-on. That's where the Tor browser comes in. The Tor Project can't ensure the security of the other browsers, so its developers had to build their own, based on Firefox. Tor isn't the speediest experience, and it will confuse location-based services, but you can't be reasonably sure that you're not getting snooped on.
Chrome is one of Google's most important products, and it shows. Developers work hard to make it fast, stable, and extensible with a huge catalog of browser add-ons. If you only want to familiarize yourself with one browser, put this one at the top of your list.
