The Best Web Browser: Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer, Opera, or Safari? - PCWorld

Not too long ago the job of a Web browser was simple: Get the text from the Internet and pour it into the window. If a tag like comes along, change the font. Now the challenges are greater because the browser is becoming the home for almost everything we do. Do you have documents to edit? There's a website for that. Did you miss a television show? There's a website for that. Do you want to announce your engagement? There's a website for that too. The Web browser handles all of that and more.

Choosing a best browser is an impossible job. On one hand, the programs are as close to commodities as there are in the computer industry. The core standards are pretty solid and the job of rendering the document is well understood. Most differences can be smoothed over when the Web designers use cross-platform libraries like jQuery. Many websites look the same in all of the major browsers, a testament to the hard work of the developers and their desire to get their information out to the largest audience.
For me and many others the answer is Google's Chrome 5. Nothing else come close. The worst is easily Internet Explorer. The current versions of Safari and Firefox are good but Chrome 5 is simply better. It is very fast, stable and flexible.
