Chrome,IE 8,Opera and Firefox,which is the best?

The most widely used Internet Explorer, but Firefox is still the most popular. Opera is more famous used in mobile devices / smartphones. Meanwhile, Chrome and Safari is only used a "handful" fanatic user. To test the ability which is often done, Firefox is almost always ranked at the top and IE definitely youngest numbers.

Performance: faster browsing
Since the last test, IE8 and Safari do not offer so many versions leaps almost no new features. Meanwhile, Opera 10:50 Beta version looks different from previously tested with the final version of its Opera. Like Firefox and Chrome, Opera technical look and a lot of progress, especially in terms of performance.

When Chrome and Safari winner with a fast-Engine WebKit, Opera is now able to pursue both. Completion of the Rendering-Engine-Engine Presto and JavaScript talking about producing a turbo speed. With Benchmark-Test, Peacekeeper, Safari and even behind

This benchmark test various JavaScript functions that are often used by complex websites. These advantages were also seen while browsing. Opera can display pages faster.

Thanks to Java-Script-Engine V8 better, Chrome is still the fastest. In addition, Google's browser is more efficient to consume resources that give the best overall performance. In this test, Firefox 3.6 did show better results than ever before. However, their performance was no longer stands out compared to other browsers. The slowest browser retained by IE8. However, at least Microsoft's browser uses RAM.

Display: Smoking is not a problem
The browser should not only display web content fast, but also without error. Testing with CSS2.1-Suite from the Web Standards Consortium, W3C, indicate that the browser is not so problematic with the old web standards. From about 7000 tests conducted separately, not many display an error and the difference is not too meaningful.
Conditions are different with the new standard of HTML5 and CSS3. Here, IE8 has a major problem, while other browsers provide excellent support for this specification. Similarly, the Acid3-Test, a test to show the elements of CSS and JavaScript. This new test will be supported by IE at the upcoming Version 9.

However, IE8 quite well with functions, such as the Address Bar that offers more suggestions sorted URLs or Tabs can be grouped into the group. Indeed, features like Quick Info and Web slices have not offered by other browsers. Meanwhile, Firefox 3.6 is not much to offer new features, except the Tab Bar a more optimal and an Integrated Plug-ins-Check, which will report the version of Flash or Java that have not been updated. Renewal likely offered in four versions later.
However, with add-ons are available, you can already feel the Firefox version is coming.
Google itself has taken a big development in Chrome. Currently, the Chrome version 4 already supports about 3,000 add-on that can complete with features such as Chrome AdBlocker or Password Manager.
Plug-ins are more practical than that offered by Opera or IE8. In Opera, the plug-in that it is not necessary because the Opera 10:50 version offers nearly everything needed by the surfer.
New interface is quite impressive. When you are accustomed to, the display may facilitate a user in the surf. In addition, Opera also supports the features of Windows 7 Aero Peek (a previews of all open Tabs on the taskbar) and Jumplist to access websites which are often visited. Previously, only IE8 can do it.

Data Privacy: "hide" while browsing
Opera also make improvements for browser security and integrating the most recent in a Privacy Mode. With this feature, users can surf without saving Opera Cookies or History of websites you have visited. Additionally, Opera offers the most effective option to handle active elements, such as JavaScript or remove the traces of the browser. If Firefox and IE8 offers more options, Safari and Chrome lacking in privacy and security aspects. Reportedly, Google will remove Browser-ID in the upcoming version 4.1. With that ID, the user can be uniquely identified.
The big difference is indicated by the Integrated test-Phishing Filter to block malicious websites. When Firefox, Chrome, and Safari is only able to detect half of phishing websites that are tested, Opera is able to detect approximately 75 percent. The worst results given by the IE8 filter. Than half of the listed websites, the browser is passed instead of four websites that are blocked by other browsers. Two of the website is very dangerous because it threatens even a PC with a virus. Sure troublesome when this happens.


Facebook is the most favorite places to infected files.

According to reports AppRiver, more than ten percent of spam messages that circulated during the last six months, containing malware. In the same period, nearly 45 percent of junk emails that come from Europe.

AppRiver, vendor email and web security home Florida, United States states, the malware via email back to bloom after the last few years to dim. "During the 30 days terakhor, quarantine AppRiver has more than 45 million messages containing the virus," the report AppRiver, as quoted from Softpedia, July 3, 2010.

From the source side, AppRiver noted that Europe produces 44.7 percent from 26 billion messages to their quarantine in the last six months. "This is not surprising, because according to statistics, half of the 10 largest spam producing countries are the countries of Europe," referred to in its report AppRiver.

Europe itself, followed by Asia with 26.3 percent and South America with 12.4 percent. North America and Australia-Oceania only supply spam as much as 13.9 and 2.3 per cent.
