Firefox. Opera. Chrome. You've heard the names. You may have thought about trying one out, or you may have already switched. You may think it doesn't matter what program you use to view the web—but it does.
When the “Browser Wars,” ended, Microsoft Internet Explorer dominated the web. The next few years showed that domination by a single browser harms the web and the computers that connect to it. Fortunately, there are many alternative browsers to choose from, and a resurgence of interest in keeping those choices available.
Chrome and Firefox are leading the pack. Opera continues to innovate and has a dedicated following.
And that's only the beginning of the list.
