Top 5 Recommended Web Browsers for 2011

When it comes to surfing the net we demand a web browser that is robust, safe, easy to use and one that will amalgamate with the everyday tasks of our online lifestyles. In our experience usability is one the essential factors to getting the most enjoyment and productivity from using a good web browser, and so we give you the top 5 web browsers worth checking out for 2011.

1. Firefox

We’ll go straight in for the kill as Firefox has always been our top favourite over them all. Load up time for initialisation and the complete loading of our blog took around 11 seconds on a 7MB wireless broadband. Some of the features include tabbed browsing, integrated search box, add-ons and custom skins just to name a few. Security wise includes anti-spyware, anti-virus, anti-phishing, pop-up blocker and private mode. Configurations are supported with Windows Vista, XP and MAC.

2. Rockmelt

For us Rockmelt spells the sign of great things to come from future web browsers. Rockmelt is a web browser with complete social media integration in mind. You can keep tabs on Facebook and Twitter and any other social feeds you wish to add to the tool bars that you desire. Rockmelt gives you the complete freedom to interact socially with your online buddies without ever leaving a page. For example chatting to your Facebook friends whilst checking out what’s on at the cinema. For now Rockmelt is only available by invitation and so if you’d like to give it a run, connect with me on Facebook and I’ll send you an invitation in which you can accept.

3. Internet Explorer 9 Beta

The beloved Internet Explorer was 15-years old last month and has been a favourite for many users since its first arrival in November 1995. Internet Explorer 9 is the current version with more features than ever before including a neat tool that allows you to pin sites that you regularly visit and have access to them directly from the toolbar. Other features include a more powerful download manager, enhanced tabbed browsing, search using the address bar as appose to an integrated search box and hardware acceleration to name just a few.

4. Google Chrome

When Google Chrome first came out I was pretty excited about the whole thing. Chrome is compatible with Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7. Initially designed for speed and generally faster browsing from double clicking on the icon on your desktop, you could potentially be browsing in less than a few seconds flat. Google Chrome is a simple design with rather no clutter in the toolbar and includes an auto-update and a built-in malware and phishing protection system.

5. Safari

Last but not least is the all new Safari 5. Safari is probably lesser popular than the above mentioned browsers however the new Safari 5 packs a serious punch. Features include full HTML5 support, a Nitro Engine that allows you to browse through pages at lightening speeds, integrated Bing search and Safari extensions. One of the other features is something called Safari Reader, and what this does is filter ads and so call unwanted clutter from web pages containing articles; hmmm not too sure about that one.

So there you have it our top 5 internet browser you need to be checking out in 2011.

    I have always been a Firefox user since its first release. The free plugins/addons to its browser made me its loyal follower. The new releases are really fast & secure , atleast for me. Though I also have Chrome & IE on my laptop, Firefox is my default browser.
