What browsers should I toy with?
Posted 23 March 2009 - 08:20 PM
Upon MS developing new browsers, it gets me excited and annoyed simultaneously (sucking history), lol, but maybe something useful will come out of it.
I'm wondering...what browsers should I have or what is the most beneficial for have to be using right now?
As of now, I have Opera, Firefox, and IE 7.
Should I ditch Opera for Safari? Obviously the majority goes to IE/FF, but with Google making a browser, things will slowly but surely change.
I at least what 3-4 browsers but definitely not more. The two main ones must be Firefox and Internet Explorer. Should I just get google chrome/safari and call it a day?

From looking at Anime Gerad's traffic, you may also want to look into how well the site works on the iPhone and other portable devices.

No reason to have two browsers with the same engine...
Edit!: Holy snap, I've been toying with Safari as it catches my interest more than anything else.

Definitely a surprise. Though it seems the title text for Safari (next to the Safari icon in the upper left hand corner) is blurry as hell, what's up with that?
Firefox tested time = 9 - 10 seconds
Safari tested time = 1 - 2 seconds
In short...I'm gasping for air, though I have read that Safari lacks the security that other browsers have and that they want no add-ons for their browser...a big shortcoming in terms of a developer using a browser.

I just....was so shocked after testing Safari, it's my official second browser as of now, replacing Opera. Though I keep IE, FF, O, and S all on my system as I want to test multifarious browsers at certain times. It beats Firefox in JS parsing hands down, I wonder how google chrome compares...
CSS/XHTML parsing time looks about equal, so the biggest factor definitely comes into equation when a page contains some sort of script/program.
You were right about Safari bro. I love apple for this.

If you haven't tried google chrome I've heard lots of good things about it as well as that it rivals firefox in speed and reliability plus its backed by google's technology so its got a good base to expand upon. What other browsers have you used besides those three or is that all of them?
I realize your message is a tad dated, but I'll reply anyway: Firefox/Chrome/Safari/Opera/IE 9/IE Tester.
