When I say "web browser" you probably think Firefox, Internet Explorer, and Chrome (and maybe even Safari, or Opera). With good reason, those are the standards by which all web browsing is measured. But what if I told you there were other browsers out there worth installing and using? In fact there are quite a lot of browsers that fit this description. I have dug around and found five that floated to the top of the sea of obscurity. Some of these are straight-up browsers that offer little more than just a clean, efficient browsing experience. Others offer features not found in any other browser.
