Right off the assembly line
Today-9 Mar 2011- Google released its Chrome 10. A few weeks ago MS released IE 9. Firefox's 4 beta is already doing the rounds. The Point is : Everyone is claiming their browser to be faster, more secure etc. Though I have all the 4 major browsers I don't see TOO MUCH DIFFERENCE. Can any user who has a good knowledge and experience with browsers make something of all these and translate for all ?

You're correct. There's hardly any practical difference in speed now. Browsers should be concentrating on providing more usability and features.

Opera 11 is my favourite.

I have been using Firefox for more than 2 years now, it's the best for allover job, but I do find it laggy sometimes. Will switch to one which has the stability of FF and added speed. :)
PS- I haven't used the FF 4 though, comment based on latest 3.6.15

Chromium 11, Firefox 4, Opera 11 are all fine in my book, secure great set of features, run in all major platforms.

for non tech addictive users-chrome is best
Firefox seems to be more secure
but for overall opera clinches this title

No, we don't but why should I lock it anyways? These type of threads keep on coming up after 2-3 months or so when a new version is released and then die automatically. Happens everywhere.

Anything wrong with it? I wouldn't have replied to this thread for the second time anyways. ;) Just for the note, you also did the same thing albeit for whatever reasons.

This report should make it clear that Chrome is the winner:

Safari and IE8 get shamed at Pwn2Own, Chrome still safe... for now

Ahead of the most recent Pwn2Own, Google made a rather proud challenge: it'd pay $20,000 to any team or individual who could successfully hack Chrome. Two takers signed up for that challenge -- and then both backed down. One individual didn't show up and a second entry, known as Team Anon, decided to focus their efforts elsewhere. There's still time left for someone to come out of the woodwork and scrape off that polish, but as of now no brave souls have registered intent. Meanwhile, IE8 was taken down by Stephen Fewer, who used three separate vulnerabilities to get out of Protected Mode and crack that browser's best locks. Safari running on a MacBook Air got shamed again, cracked in just five seconds. Not exactly an improvement compared to how it fared in 2008.

Let's see what happens in the real championship.

BTW, I'm too addicted to Chrome. I'll never use anything else.

was addicted to opera, then satisfied with FF, opted chrome for while, returning back to Opera 11 via IE 9

hv used FF 4, kinda annoying for me, better to stick with 3.x. getting frustrated when chrome starts crashing with flash/youtube. IE 9 is not that bad, even flock was also good.

opera always been my fav, but i feel older versions are pretty fast compared to 11.

World's most complicated comment :))

I just opened all the 4 browsers mentioned here and all with 5 same tabs to see which one is hogging the maximum memory, and here is the result :)
