Majority of the computer users today, the most used application on their desktop is the Internet Browser. Internet Browsers comes in different version, looks, capabilities, specialties and usage. I use Mozilla Firefox to surf the internet because of its speed in browsing, but when it comes to banking transactions or any related transactions on the internet, I prefer to browse with Internet Explorer because it is more trusted and secured browser by many companies.

So for me, the best browser is not measured by their existence but by how do people use it. It is just like the saying “beauty is in the eye of the beholder. ”Instead of saying which is number 1 or the best browser I will show you their pros and cons.

Hi,

  • To answer your question, one of the main reasons why there are a lot of browsers is because it depends on the creator or the main proponent of a certain software. For example, Microsoft owns Internet Explorer, so most computers that are manufactured by Microsoft have Windows Internet Explorer. Safari is owned by Apple or Macintosh. If you will, notice, iPods, iPhones, iPads, and Mac computers have Safari installed on them. Google Chrome is owned by the leading search engine Google. Although they don't really concentrate on computer manufacturing, having a search engine also means having a browser that can download information efficiently. To give you more insights on the different browsers, here are some input regarding the most common browsers that we use.
  • Internet Explorer – It is the most common of all because majority of computers run using Microsoft Windows. Internet Explorer updates almost regularly (we are now at IE 8 and IE 9 is launching soon). The interface is user – friendly and most of the settings are easy to navigate. You just need to check on the toolbar. However, there are instances wherein Internet Explorer rejects some unsecured websites even though you always access them. This usually happens when you have an advanced browser such as IE 7 or IE 8. And it has a tendency to slow browsing speed. Internet Explorer also allows you to remember sites you've visited that when you type in an address, it would show you the recent pages that you've visited. But once you've cleared all history, only those on your Bookmarks will show up.
Internet Explorer - It is the most common of all
  • Mozilla Firefox – One of the best things about Mozilla Firefox is tabbed browsing, which was imitated by Internet Explorer. Mozilla Firefox enables you to open new windows in new tabs rather than having multiple windows in one screen which consumes space. Mozilla Firefox is also easy to use and is user-friendly. Also, browsing is faster as compared to Internet Explorer because it doesn't require a lot of certificates and updates. One disadvantage of Firefox is that it requires you to install add-ons frequently and you may have difficulty accessing websites that you frequently visit if you don't install the add-ons. Sometimes there are also too many toolbars showing up for no reason. Also, with Firefox tabbed browsing, once one tab gets an error all other tabs are affected so you would need to close the entire window. It will prompt you to restore your last session, which is not advisable because it will end up giving you an error message. Firefox also has a way of helping you remember sites although it is a little different from Internet Explorer. It would show recent pages you've visited when you've typed in an address. This can be beneficial if you want to go back to that particular page but not particularly to the homepage.

  • Google Chrome – is good for computers with small screens. If you will notice, the interface of Chrome is spacious and does not have a lot of toolbars and menu bars. Chrome is also relatively faster than Firefox. Chrome also has tabbed browsing which allows you to open another tab and browse independently. The advantage of Chrome over Firefox is that when one tab has an error, it does not affect the other tabs and you may just close that tab and continue browsing. As compared to Firefox, Chrome has a more limited selection of add-ons and some websites that require those add-ons may not work properly. Chrome's settings page are also unfamiliar because the interface is different. Also, since Chrome is relatively new, it has not been tried and tested for errors and glitches.

  • Safari – is an unfamiliar browser because Apple products are not that accessible to us. The interface is simple, a little similar to Chrome and does not consume a lot of space on the screen.   Safari menus are a almost similar to Internet Explorer and is also easy to access. The options are relatively the same so it is not really difficult to navigate. One disadvantage with Safari is that not all programs are compatible with it. For example, one company's remote access tool won't be able to function on a Mac computer if the computer only has Safari. Some software are not compatible with Safari and you may need to purchase the software itself from Apple in order to install it.

Hello,

I have 5 solutions for you here, and you can try any of the following. I hope one of these will solve your problem.

Solution 1:

Have you ever tried to scan your computer? Because some of the reasons why your memory automatically decreases is because you have a spyware. Spyware is silently affecting your system, like destroying hard drive, slow internet connection and it will automatically change your settings. There are two different ways to scan your computer.

First way, follow these steps:
In your Anti-virus, click Tools tab then select Update.
Updating Anti-virus is very important, do it regularly.
When updating is done, click Tools tab to select scan computer then wait for a minute.
When it's done, look for the scan results and check the virus detected. Here, you can see the files that are affected.
All you have to do is to remove those infected files.

And now, here is the second way.
I recommend you to have a good scanner. HDDScan is a freeware program which help you detect viruses, Trojans and network worms.
It can fix all the problems related to Ram failures, hard disk problems and Registry problems.
It supports IDE, SATA, SCSI hard disk drives, Raid arrays, Flash cards and external USB/Firewire hard disks.

Here are the links: Download the HDDScan Installer, Download older version

Solution 2:

If you are always using your Internet browsers, you have to delete all the cookies and Internet history. It can decrease your memory. Follow these steps:
Press Windows key and select Control Panel.
Pick the Network and Internet Connections.
In the Control Panel icon, select the Internet Options.
The Internet properties dialog box will open,
On the General tab, check the 'Delete browsing history on exit" check box, then click Delete.
Check all the check box except Form data or Passwords if you don't want to remove them, then click Delete button.
Then close the dialog box after deleting the Internet History.

Solution 3:

Clean your disk clean up to free up disk space in the computer's hard drive. Disk cleanup targets to perform the following:

Compression of old files, Temporary Internet files, Recycle Bin, Offline files, Downloaded Program files, Temporary Windows files and Startup log files. Follow these steps:

Press the Windows key and select Run then hit Enter.
Type cleanmgr.exe
The Disk Cleanup dialog box will open.
Check all the check box on the Files to delete.
Click OK then click Yes.
Wait for a few seconds, the disk clean up is cleaning up unnecessary files.

Solution 4:

Perform the full de-fragmentation. It is performed to increase the speed by rearranging files that is stored on your hard disk. It is also recommended to be done at least twice a week. Here are the steps:
Press the Windows key –> All Programs –> Accessories –> System Tools –> Disk Defragmenter
The Disk De-fragmenter window will open.
Right-click the local drive C and select Defragment.
Wait for a minute until the defragment is done,
Restart your computer.

Solution 5:

Remove programs that you don't need to use. It only occupies some space in your memory. Remove it using add/Remove programs, follow these steps:
Press Windows key and Control Panel.
Pick Add/Remove Programs category.
The Add or Remove Programs window will open.
Look for the programs that you need to remove. Then, click Change/Remove button to uninstall the program.
Just do the same steps for the other unused programs.

The first browser I introduced to was Internet Explorer. Then I've tried using Mozilla Firefox and currently using Google Chrome as of now. I am just familiar with those three browsers that I mentioned (Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome), after trying to use those three I noticed nothing feels different.

I haven't experienced using the other browsers beside that three. Out of curiosity, I'm just wondering why is it having too many browsers. Can someone tell me what is the most effective browser among them? Or maybe shortly discuss to me their advantages/disadvantages from each other?
