The Fastest Web Browser by Nobody: 11:12pm On Jan 10, 2009
I just found out that:

1. IE 8 beta 2 only works on XP, I'm flexing it now

2. It is way faster than IE6 (I did a format and had to be using IE6 for a while)

3. Safari is good for downloading in cafes where the admin is strict about downloading and bandwidth (u can hide the download window)

4. Maxthon browser is very similar to IE, it is only more colorful

5. Opera 9.63 happens to be the best and fastest brower I have used so far

Whats yours?

opera 10 Alpha. Presto 2.2 rendering engine makes it currently THE FASTEST browser (even though its on alpha stage of development). followed by Opera 9.63.

downloading the alpha right now. . .fortunately, different builds of opera can be installed alongside each other . . .love opera kiss


i think its the only browser with a download manager that allows you to resume broken downloads. your pc can bsod, and when you restrt, just go to the download tab and click resume even works with file hosters - at least with megaupload

have currently downloaded the cool skins and plugins etal

been using it since 2006 , when a chick in a cafe told me it would be better for my downloads if i used it. fecking IE would crash halfway into a 200mb download. . .and i'd have to start again. . .

Yeah, I wonder why IE and Firefox can't resume broken downloads. It's not hard to implement, is it?

According to computer analists firefox has been rated the fastest browser,but i highly disagree cuz every browser has it advantages and disadvantages. Firefox is not good with dial up,IE8 is very slow and consumes more memory. safari and google chrome is very good.i recommend apple safari. well just to let u no, all this browsers now have portable versions for u flash drive. now u can continues ur browsing sessions anywhere u go. i use portable softwares cuz itz beta,no need for installation. so even if ur system crashes u can retrieve them like ur normal softwares, wink

Re: The Fastest Web Browser by betheldgr8(m): 7:24pm On Jan 21, 2009
google chrome has got a feature that allows u to search from the address bar without opening any search engine.
just open google chrome and type what u want to search for in the address bar and press enter, it will return search results in google way.
Re: The Fastest Web Browser by Blossom8: 12:51am On Jan 22, 2009
I think Opera is still the fastest. Honestly, Considering so many factors:

1 Ability to resume previous pages
2 Download management
3 Wap adaptability
4 Ability to create multiple Tabs on a page.
5 Speed

Though other browsers have these, but not all have it together.
So, the best is Opera and the fastest I have used is still Opera.
Kudos to Opera Team. I love them and I know I would meet them soon.

Man did i just learn something. Downloaded Chrome and uninstalled it days later when i found out i couldn't do much on it. A lot of pluggin issues still being worked on. I believe with time they will come out good. They somehow have a winning formula others cann't understand. i even read that they are secretly working on an operating system (google na wah sef).

Re: The Fastest Web Browser by adanny01(m): 3:11pm On Jan 24, 2009
From this poll, Opera is the fastest. I use it. I cannot consistently browse with any other than Opera. Its the best.

google Chrome is the best browser, when i first downloaded it, my internet browsing was running at a lighting speed, i even checked my speed Ip-Details.com and it was normal 5Mbps too, i was using firefox which chocked my browsing capabilities .

1.when you close a tab, you are virtually terminating the process. This seams to have some interesting implications on the security of the browser
2.Google Chrome also implements a new privacy feature. They call it incognito. Basically if you browse while being in incognito mode, nothing ever gets logged.
3.Another interesting feature which I need to mention is that popups are not blocked but they open in a minimized window.
4.It has a very simple design, which allows us to browse faster than any internet browser out there.
