5. Internet Explorer 10

I don’t normally prefer using internet Explorer because it is very slow when compared to any other web browser mentioned above. There is famous Joke on internet about IE “Internet explorer is the best browser to download other Browsers”. There are many jokes floating on internet explorer as it get even hangs sometimes while using it. Though Microsoft it updating it frequently none can stop it from getting crashed.

    You can also add the Torch browser to your list. It’s chromium-based, works great on windows 8, and has a couple of built in features that are really handy for most people (video downloader, torrent client, etc.)

  2. Hey Bruce…
    I haven’t used it yet, thanks for your comment, will check and add it to the list soon.

    keep visiting

  3. Bruce L. says:

    May be u havent used it or u still hung up with p3 xp with ie5

  5. Hey bro,

    I don’t mean that.You must be a Fan of IE :)
    i mean to say that, Other browsers that I’ve mentioned works better than than Internet Explorer.

    More over i prefer, Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome because. They comes out with many features which are not provided in Internet explorer.

    Even if we take security issues into consideration, none will prefer it..Have you heard about the Vulnerability in IE 8, which will let the hackers to hack your PC,when you just click on their link from Internet Explorer ??

    considering all these things, I’ve mentioned it in 5th place :)

  6. yea Torch is the best so far similar to chrome fast and easy to download with better features

  7. i like opera

  8. Yeah Opera works fine.

  9. my favourate is safari

  10. i like Google chrome, and opera, thankly

  11. how could u even think of writing IE in top 5 list

  12. Ha Ha, Bro Latest version of Internet explorer is wroking fine.
    check the 2nd comment by some anonymous guy, There are many fans for IE too !

  13. Ohhh cool :)

  14. Yeah bro, its an awesome browser too :)

  15. I’ve gotten a lot of pop ups in google chrome lately and I had to switch to mozilla firefox but it is much slower than google chrome and sometimes things just don’t load up at all. I go back to google chrome and it’s annoying because I get all of the pop up as soon as I load any page. The pop ups are also happening with IE…why is this happening all of the sudden?

  16. Hey,

    Those Pop-ups and adds that you are seeing on your Google chrome browser are because of Ad-wares that are installed on your PC. Recently you must have installed some software on your PC from Non-trusted sources and that might resulted you in this.

    and the solution for this is, Just install a Anti-adware or Anti mall-ware on your PC. It will solve you problem for sure. Search in Google for a application called “adwcleaner” and run in it. I’ve tested it and it works great !

  17. IE10 way quickest in all performance tests and least crashes. Also now better privacy settings by default. Chrome and Firefox still better for HTML5 compliance. Just installed latest Chrome on Tablet with Windows 8.1 preview and touch won’t work properly. Used to prefer Chrome but switched to IE as a result…

  18. One of the reason i dont i prefer IE is just because, many of the latest HTML and CSS codes wont get displayed on IE. That is why i prefer Chrome.

    Yes IE 10 is fine. I ‘ve checked it too :)

  19. Maybe go read a real article, yeah?

    Please research before writing to have a clue what you’re talking about.

  20. Everyone have their own opinion :)

  21. torch is an excellent choice

  22. why the flash player going so much crash in mozila ? any solution?

  23. Yeah ! I agree with you mate !

  24. Try to updated your browser to the latest version and try re-installing the flash player plugin ! it will work fine in most of the cases.

  25. Torch is web browser for win8…………let it try dude

  26. Anonymous says:

    idk y idiots just don’t admit it IE 10 is way better than google chrome… and btw chrome crashes the most out of all these browsers mentioned…

  27. From my experience Chrome is nice i used it mostly ’cause its simple, customable and light not use so many memory RAM if compared with firefox ( eat so much RAM).

    i’ll try TORCH

  28. hey Bruce troch browser is very nice but it allows the spywares and virus file through internet downloads so I think it is’t suitable for windows 8.
    if we can protect from virus and spywares please mail your suggestions to my mail-id arunk6411@gmail.com

  29. hey Bruce I think torch is not a good browser the cause is it does’t protect from spyware and virus files. if it ‘ll protect means give your suggestions to mail id arunk6411@gmail.com

  30. It’s a chrome based browser so it does as much in that department as regular chrome…shouldn’t be a difference at all in fact.

    Torch is the best…

  32. I crashed Windows 8 6 times trying to install the proper version of Firefox – which was supposed to be at last ‘ Nithtly ‘ not good either –
    The problem lies with the Adobe Flash Player plugin that does not work on Firefox right now – I brought it to tech at last and he said don’t install any Firefox anymore … now – maybe it had to do with other setup of Samsung ??

  33. Are you serious? Chrome actually uses the highest amount of memory. It just runs multiple processes in task manager so you won’t get the exact amount.

  34. I am going to try TORCH too……………

  35. totally agree with you….Google chrome crashes all the time in Windows 8. On the other hand IE has improved a lot in the past few months. I was a huge fan of Chrome but now i have switched to IE

  36. Just installed Torch, as usual I did read before clicking next because I only want torch, after install completed I saw 4-5 additional desktop links “youtube,amazon,eba…) if they have to sneak stuff in under my radar what else are dumping on my pc?

  37. Been using firefox for years now but it now slow and easily hi-jacked by do-searches.com. So itis both slow and unsafe

  38. Firefox is now slow and unsafe (do-searches.com hijack)

  39. I am going to try TORCH

  40. i have used torch and i also like to use someting in this 5

  41. but. . . but. . . speed, space, and security is what IE provides 😐

  42. good call Bruce, I don’t believe many ppl know of this browser but once the word gets out I’m sure Chrome will be in 2nd place.

    when i first installed torch it worked just fine but a few weeks later it crashed a bit then a lot then messed up my laptop . then i got to know about maxthon it was sooo cool but i still miss my video grabber from torch.

  46. Too many Torch Lovers 😀

  47. I don’t agree with you.

  48. Comodo Ice Drago is the best.Fast,performance,security.

  49. how about slim browser?

  50. Firefox is not working properly. When you search something on google and click on the results the pages don’t load. I’ve reinstalled so many times but same results. Why?

    I love Opera, Opera if fast, reliable and doesn’t crash, my opinion, Opera is the best for windows 8, our laptop is a family laptop, Opera saves all of our passwords to Facebook, Gmail, on like Internet Explorer, Internet Explorer is junk now, its slow, and it doesn’t save passwords, I highly recommend Opera!!!

  57. dude opera and chrome not working for my windows 8 help me please

  58. Nice post admin, Thanks! Also Visit Cyber Programmers

  59. Fire Fox and Chrome has proven it does not operate right with Windows 8 or 8.1. I found this to be true the minute I upgraded to 8.1. So your info is incorrect. Internet is full of customers complaining about that too. Not just me.

  60. Hey its really help full! There are lots of many other browsers are in the internet,but they are not secure and not trust able browser. i think my experience is the best browser is Firefox.
