Google Chrome 18

The new chrome has included some new features, such as Chrome Instant, Flash and PDF display. This makes it the only browser with built-in flash and so one doesn’t have to undergo the process of downloading flash player from adobe’s website and also updates them automatically when required. With the inclusion of PDF reader installing Adobe plugins for viewing specialized Web content won’t be needed anymore. The new chrome will be liked for its fast browsing, due to hardware acceleration, security tools like sandboxing and malware warnings. It supports HTML 5 and supports multiple tabs without slowing down and has customizable extensions.

Bottom-line: Featuring a minimalist design, chrome in its latest avatar is faster than before and is an out an-out winner in performance benchmarks.

Mozilla Firefox 11

Firefox 11 may not be as fast as chrome but is ready with hardware acceleration and supports syncing for tabs, history, passwords and also add-ons among multiple devices such as smartphones and tablets, without bothering even once about the OS. It also allows importing of settings, cookies, history and bookmarks from Chrome, which was available only for Internet Explorer, Opera and Safari. This browser doesn’t have features like built in Flash, PDF reader, and Instant page view that loads pages instantly and are found in chrome. The CSS Style Editor allows you to change CSS code and paves the way for more interactive designing of web pages.

Bottom-line: Firefox 11 may not be as fast as chrome but in JavaScript performance, it is very good and is only second to Internet Explorer 9.
