A variety of web browsers have been established worldwide. Three examples are Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, and Opera. Some common features include use of tabs, built in search engine toolbars, and pop up blockers. However, there are several differences between the three such as ability to work with MAC servers, spellchecker, and application skins. Out of these three browsers I prefer Internet Explorer to Firefox and Opera. Internet explorer is one of the most commonly used web browsers in the world. For a many of years it was the only browser you could use. It did not have any major changes to its features until the release of 6.0 in the year 2001. At this time, unlike Firefox, It did not have the opening links in tabs feature. It later adapted this feature in its latest version, 7.0. It’s browsing speed runs average compared to its competitors. It also uses less memory storage on your computer. It comes in second of the three for memory storage though. Like Firefox and Opera it has add-ons for the search engine of your choice such as Google, Yahoo, and With these add-ons you are able to surf the net more quickly and thoroughly within your open browser window. Microsoft is still making improvements to Internet Explorer for future use. Mozilla Firefox was created by Netscape Technology with many features related to that of internet explorer. Firefox makes up around 30% of browsers used today, so more sites will support it. You can browse multiple sites in one window using the tabs button. It also features an ad block extension that will eliminate most advertisements on sites. Unlike Internet Explorer, many popups can still get around the Firefox built-in popup blocker. The most effective popup blocker is on Opera. Firefox also has the capability to check your spelling as you type in word boxes on any site. Internet Explorer and Opera do not.
