Internet explorer:  

Pros: 

Every Windows computer worldwide comes with Internet Explorer installed. Since Internet Explorer is backed by Microsoft, it generally has fast loading speeds. If your application is interactive and has a rich interface, Internet Explorer is a great fit.  

Cons: 

Using Internet Explorer include many page errors that occur while using it and less tools available for developers. This makes it more difficult when debugging an application and general design.  

Google Chrome:  

Pros: 

Some of the most prominent benefits of using Chrome for your application include the fast performance and the ease of Chrome on hardware. Chrome also comes with Adobe Flash which helps run apps with a strong interface. The large extension selection also provided by Chrome along with the developer tools makes it one of the most powerful platforms for applications.  

Cons 

Some of the drawbacks of Chrome include weird fonts for some applications, certain site incompatibilities and lack of accessing the Do Not Track Feature.  

Mozilla Firefox:  

Pros: 

In contrast to Internet Explorer and Chrome, Mozilla Firefox provides a minimalistic interface with a great library of add-ons. The add-ons provided by Firefox are similar to Chrome’s extensions; most of the extensions in Chrome’s library are also available as add-ons on Firefox. This makes it great for applications’ user interfaces because pages load well and it has great developer tools available.  

Cons: 

Some disadvantages of using Firefox include its weaker performance on hardware and compatibility issues for some programs.  

Additional web browser apps include: 

  • Opera
