    Opera
    Performance is definitely the most important part of a web browser.

    Many people claim that Google Chrome is the fastest web browser. I agree that it's fast, but it's been a while since I used it so I don't know if it's faster than Opera.

    Mozilla Firefox is definitely not faster than Chrome.

    On Opera's homepage, they claim to be "The world's fastest Web browser thus-far produced for Windows computers. The latest version is also tightly integrating with Windows 7.

    According to most speed and performance tests, the latest version of Opera and Google Chrome usually comes out as the winner of the fastest web browser overall. Firefox is usually in third place, while Internet Explorer and Safari is far behind.

    I think Chrome is fast and it's great for people who are only using the browser for simple basic surfing. However, for people who uses the Internet on a larger scale, Opera is my recommendation.

    The only significant downside with Opera is that it requires more memory than most other major browsers since it's more advanced, but this is definitely not a problem if you have a relatively good computer.

    The fact is that between Firefox, Chrome, and Opera, the difference is so close in terms of speed that the real differentiating factor is the feature set. And this is why Opera is the best browser on the marked.

    Is Opera 10.5 the ‘Fastest Browser on Earth?’ Maybe.

    I don't know when you last tried Opera, but it's a lot faster now than it was not long ago. Also, with the newest version, Opera claim to be the fastest web browser on Earth. Especially for people with very slow Internet connections, Opera should be their first choice. The feature called "Opera Turbo" makes Opera twice as fast than any other browser on slow connections.

    It's sad to see the big companies like Microsoft and Google take much of Opera's marked when Opera has arguably been the biggest innovator among web browser for decades. Browsers like Firefox, Chrome and Internet Explorer has copied a lot from Opera. For example, the tab page and the visual tab model was Opera's idea.

    Re: The Best Internet Browser

    If your happy with the browser you already have then it's probably a good idea to stick with it. What ain't broke...

    ... but on the other hand, that's why so many people still uses the "standard" Internet Explorer. Many people are afraid to try out something new. I know a lot of people who "freak out" when I simply move the task-bar. Making them learn a whole new web browser is a recipe for disaster. :lol:
