A web browser is an application that allows us to view texts, view multimedia content, link one site to another, visit one page from another, print, send and receive mail, among other resources. Currently there are many web browsers, but some are better known than others, they all do the function that interests us, enter web pages, but there are great differences between them so I leave you below the best three web browsers of 2020.
As we all know, Google Chrome is the best known and used by users, it has full Google account integration, and is also compatible with Windows, Mac and Linux platforms.
1. It has an extension store and a trusted set of applications, including a remote desktop application developed by Google.
2. When I talk about integration, I mean Chrome lets you keep your data in sync, so if you log into your Google account on one device, all of your Chrome bookmarks, saved data, and preferences will appear immediately. Even the extensions will be in sync
3. The minimalist design is the visual success as it provides a simple and clean appearance.
4. In terms of speed, it is much faster and this is noticeable at the time of execution.
5. Includes a password manager that saves and creates passwords when you register on a website
6. This is the browser mostly used by developers since it has Device Mode, which allows testing any mobile page, not only at different resolutions, but also at the emulation level, allowing to simulate touch events, geolocations, accelerometers and others.
Mozilla Firefox is the best alternative to Chrome, it is safe, fast and reliable, its developers created Firefox Quantum and it is designed to take advantage of multicore processors and this brings faster speed. Firefox is a powerful browser and has a wide repertoire of extensions, the advantage of this browser is its age and therefore some old web applications work better in Firefox.
1. Privacy is important and that is why this browser integrates an extension that directly prevents internet trackers from collecting your data, it also offers a Facebook container that automatically prevents the social network from tracking your movements through the browser.
2. In a matter of speed it is almost at the level of Chrome, this
3. Firefox is lighter and this requires less memory which is up to 30% less RAM consumption and this favors battery life.
4. This browser was developed by developers for developers, therefore, it has a huge community that contributes its small grain of sand with add-ons that help enhance web development tools
5. It has a pop-up blocker and this is great when you are on pages with annoying ads.
6. It is also cross-platform.
Opera is a browser that stands out since its minimum requirements for its operation are very low, making it ideal for computers with little power.
1. It's multiplatform
2. It incorporates an unlimited VPN service, becoming a more secure option.
3. It has a turbo mode that allows agile Internet connectivity on slow connections.
4. It is full of features with a clean user interface and very great customization options.
5. Provides many hidden utilities within its simple and manageable interface. For example, there is built-in support for messaging apps, such as Facebook Messenger and WhatsApp.
To finish, these are the most used and best browsers, each one has its advantages, but it will depend on the use you give it, I recommend that you try them and choose the one that best suits your needs.
