    Many prefer Monzilla Firefox

    http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/new/

    While some like Opera

    http://www.opera.com/

    while others like Safari

    http://www.apple.com/safari/download/

    while others like Goggles Chrome

    http://www.google.com/chrome/?brand=CHKB&utm_campaign=en&utm_source=en-ha-aunz-ct&utm_medium=ha

    But probably the best is for you to look here at a compression of the different Browsers available.

    I like mozilla 3.6... Comparing to Chrome also the performance is good..
    If you go with the Version 4. we don't get save option...
    While browsing if got you got some work... If you want to save the opened browsing pages just close it... it asks to save it or not... you can just save all tabs with one click...
    Safari also looks better...

    It has an older look to it, large buttons, big text, and customizable GUI. The full screen mode works really well on Netbooks.

    Opera for security, downloads, bookmarks, and several superb features. Internet Explorer 9 is great for familarity and general surfing. Firefox and Chrome are nice for simplicity. Safari is ok but I prefer IE9 for general surfing.

    Opera is also fast, has bittorrent, notes and so many other features it's actually an internet suite rather then simply a browser. Since they opened up extensions to outside devs the available add-ons library has grown significantly.

    Opera also has a sync feature for transferring bookmarks and settings to another systems, i.e. a laptop and a desktop etc. The mini browser also works with iPods but it's too bad the Flash feature can only work with AIR (extra work for developers :)). Hmm, job security :).

    FireFox 4.0 - why? Because there's an add-on called "noscript." This prevents all scripts from running on a web page without the users consent. This is great for protecting your computer against malicious programs. I can surf the web and not worry about unknowingly installing a virus. You should check it out if you want security over anything else. Good luck either way.

    fari as well, but still no go. Another plus about FireFox, it's open source and you can find add-ons to help make the browser look and do what you want. At first, I didn't like the accessibility of the bookmarks, but I was able to find an add-on that placed my bookmarks in a convenient spot. Anyway, I hope this info helps in your decision
