Fair and honest appraisal of the browser wars - Internet Explorer, Mozilla, Netscape and Firefox

I am someone who likes the best browser for me.  While I have often tried other browsers, I have always come back to IE based ones.  I say IE based ones as I was a Avant and Maxthon user for a good 2 years until IE7 came on the scene.  I loved tabbed browsing and those browsers gave me that.

The discussion can be found at the CRN web site and does an amazing job of describing the browser wars and talking about who won each round.  What might surprise many is that MS has not won many, but does have a large base now and the verdict is open for the next round.

For the record, I now use IE7, I still get tabbed browsing and quick tabs and I have not yet had a site I could not browse, so that is great.  I LOVE the new security features - protected mode and anti-phishing technology.  I save trees with the "about time" feature of shrink to fit for printing and when I start the browser, it opens up the 8 pages I want it to in tabs, so no longer choosing which page will be my homepage, I have 8.  (as it happens, they are Valdville, UKSMBGirl, this blog, Steve Clayton's page, Live.com and some stats pages).

 

If you have not yet got IE7 (as part of Vista or for Windows XP), download it now.
