Are you happy with your internet browser? Do you ever get fed up of your internet browser just freezing up or crashing in the middle of a browsing session? Well, the solution to this problem might be as simple as changing your browser. Internet Explorer is one of the most commonly used web browsers. Unfortunately, most of the problems described above are common to Internet Explorer. Internet Explorer is also often targeted by viruses more than other browsers. Unless you have a very good virus protection you may start noticing that your browser will start going slower and slower. The next thing you know, your browser may start crashing for no apparent reason. This is usually due to infections, so a virus scan will be in good order.
I personally recommend using Firefox. I have had pretty good experience using Firefox than other browsers. If you do not have any work or school related websites that do not require you to use Internet Explorer, I urge you to try using Firefox. In my experience with Firefox, I have noticed that it provides better security and browsing speed especially for those who like to watch movies online or play music. It might take a little bit of time to get used to it, but it is worth while because once you get past that you will enjoy faster and more secure web surfing.
Another web browser that has some good features for faster browsing is Google Chrome. This browser has settings that allow you to get search results just as you type your search in the address bar. You can also import your favorites or book marks from other web browsers so that you have them all available on your new browser. Google Chrome gives you the very basic settings that allow you to browse faster.
Another thing that may be good to know about web browsers is the use of tool bars on web browsers. Some of these tool bars are bad news. They can make your browser liable to spyware and ad-ware. If you install a tool bar and start noticing your web browser is going slower than usual or getting more pop-ups than ever, the best thing to do is remove that tool bar. If you have kids, it is advisable to use parental control settings so that they do not install any tool bars that put your computer at risk. Kids can be tricked by cute or cool looking tool bars, but what they don’t know is that behind those cute or cool tool bars there could be viruses, ad-ware or spyware attached. I have seen many examples of this. Not all tool bars are bad, you just have to make a judgment call before installing them on your computer.
In summary, if you are not happy with your browser’s performance, there are other web browser’s out there that may work for you. You just have to test them out and see which one works best for you. I hope you have found this information useful.
