Google Chrome VS Mozilla Firefox : Which one should you download ?

It’s 2011.The world is seeing a new tech revolution every week (metamorphically speaking,of course).New ideas turn into new gadgets with new softwares and new apps.Of course,I can go on forever,but I guess I’d better not deviate from the topic at hand:browsers.

The average person downloads a web browser without giving it much thought.What they miss,however,is the variety and the features these mean things provide.Today,I’ll give you an insight on two of the most common browsers these days-Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox.Let’s go.

Google developed Google Chrome initially for Microsoft Windows as a beta version in September 2008.They also released most of their source code,their V8 JavaScript engine included,under the name Chromium so that third-party developers could study the underlying source code and to help port the browser to the Mac OS X and Linux operating systems.Google released a stable version of Chrome,the name being derived from the GUI frame,or ‘chrome’ of the browser.Google Chrome offers you tabbed and secure browsing,wonderful application speed and JavaScript processing speed. Customization of the browser is easy and convenient.Chrome runs in 50 languages and now runs on Linux,Mac OS X and Microsoft Windows XP onwards.The current version of Chrome is V.14.0.835 with a beta version 15.0.874 running alongside.

Mozilla began Firefox as a branch of the Mozilla project after shifting their focus from the Mozilla Suite in 2003. The Firefox project went through many versions before 1.0 was released on November 9, 2004. After a series of stability and security fixes, the Mozilla Foundation released its first major update, Firefox version 1.5, on November 29, 2005.Features include tabbed browsing, spell checking,incremental find, live bookmarking, a download manager, private browsing, location-aware browsing (also known as “geolocation”) based exclusively on a Google service.Call it ironic,but Firefox’s integrated search system uses Google.Firefox runs on various operating systems including Microsoft Windows, GNU/Linux, Mac OS X, FreeBSD, and many other platforms. Its current stable release is version 7.0.1, released on September 29, 2011.

Chrome and Firefox are currently competing head-to-head,with both browsers comprising of 20.2% and 25.5% respectively.Picking out one of either has become a tough job,thanks to the race for dominance over the Internet leading to updates and newer releases showing up successively.

Now,to simplify matters some more,I’d suggest Firefox if all you have to do is basic browsing and social netwroking,because it’s more convenient and the plug-ins are rather helpful.However,if you’re into more demanding stuff like us bloggers running a whole site,or pure commercial usage,Google Chrome can be relied upon to help you out.

Like I said before,there’s a war going on,and the World Wide Web has now become a battlefield.So Choose wisely ;)

  4. Thank you for another fantastic article. Where else could anyone get that type of information in such an ideal way of writing? I have a presentation next week, and I’m on the look for such info.

  5. One thing you guys didn’t mention was Microsoft’s advantage of pre-installation. Many users tend to not move ahead of Internet Explorer and aren’t aware of any demerits or in some cases even the existence of other browsers :P. So I guess you should have an article about the credibility and functionality of IE.
