You might ask yourself Firefox vs Chrome vs Opera which browser is better, before deciding you should read this post to the very end.
There are a lot of the debates on the internet concerning Mozilla Firefox vs Firefox vs Chrome vs Opera, which one is better, which one should i be using as an internet lover. Now lets kick start our post topic for today.
Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome and Opera are generalized as web browsers and what are web browsers?, to what we all know, web browsers are applications used to access the web(internet) for information through the use of URI/URL (URI ==> Uniform Resource Identifier , URL ==> Uniform Resource Locator), to a normal a person that knows nothing or little about computer terms, URL/URI seems foreign, so URI/URL is an abbreviation of Uniform Resource Locator and as its name implies it means it is used by a web browser to access resources on a web server( where files and documents are stored). Not to get carried away, Mozilla Firefox and others have become a very popular browsers in every part of the World especially Nigeria as a country, many of us in Nigeria here do not know there are many other browsers apart from those three(3), we have more than 80 other browsers available to be downloaded online if you search for them and am going to drop some of them and drop the link to view them all but they are still not complete but i think the list is comprehensive enough.
We have browsers like ;
The World Browser
Pink Browser, and many of them i cannot write all of them here it will make the post too much and might make you loss interest in reading along you can continue reading here
In Nigeria today the most used browsers are Mozilla Firefox,Chrome and Opera, Now lets take them one by one and make some key analyses about each of them.
MOZILLA (Firefox): With what we got from Wikipedia, Mozilla started in the year 2002 under the name “PHOENIX” but due to trademark issues from Phoenix Technologies they decided to go for Firebird but an intense response from Firebird group made them change to Mozilla Firebird to avoid further confusion and the name Mozilla Firefox was derived from Fx o Fx (red panda) which have gave them the idea of the name. Mozilla was then tagged as the successor of Netscape Navigator then and they were strong competitor of Internet Explorer which is now an old and outdated browser in Nigeria, Mozilla came large and developed from the weakness of Internet Explorer which was then suffering attacks from Hackers which made many scared and afraid to use internet explorer. What really makes Firefox a giant browser now?, with my knowledge about Mozilla i discovered it is a browser that is fast and reliable which can be extended with the use of addons or extensions to perform other tasks which is very crucial for developers and web designers. Mozilla Firefox comes in both Mobile and Desktop Versions, the mobile version of it is very cool with nice interface and it has been round for a while as for me i really like the design and the speed of the application on mobile phones but the effect of Mozilla on android phone is ambiguous in the sense that it consumes a lot of memory on the phone most specially Android OS phones, mozilla is a very good web browser software which you should consider using.
Google Chrome: I heard some people saying anything owned by Google is very authentic and always the best of the rest, it is true or would you argue? Google itself is a well known company and its has it claws on almost every area of technology in the world and they seek and hunger for more. Many including me believes anything owned or supported by Google is recommended for use because of their taste for quality products. Chrome is a browser is fast,reliable and secure application made for the modern web. I was on Nairaland when i read through a post where people were arguing on the fastest browser between Opera, Mozilla and Google Chrome i was really surprised to see people choosing one over the other, if i were to choose one among the 3 i would not rush to make a move. Chrome is a nice browser that is supported by Google and powered by Extensions that can enhance the functionality of the application, there are numerous extensions available on chrome store to make your browsing experience more suitable and which makes programmers and developers do their work more easily.
Chrome recently announced support for android phones weeks ago as at the time of writing this post and a new feature has been added to reduce the amount of data to render a document for users by using data saver extension on your desktop computer and the work of the extension is to pass the files requested through Google servers to compress it so that you might not waste your valuable data on some website which requires very large amount of data to render information.
Now with all that i have written you should understand that Mozilla took over from Internet Explorer now tell me what do you think Google chrome is doing, it is also trying to take over from Mozilla but we all know that Mozilla is very committed and ready to face the competition but there is a common proverb that “what you cannot defeat learn how to live with it” i know Mozilla is trying to live with the competition but for how long when Google chrome is owned by Google because we all know Google the search giant is a commanding authority in technology atmosphere and have weeded of competition in the past to attain that height, competition with Mozilla is just like a little competition.
N.B – Before you choose the browser you would like to use, you have to consider these three factors and they are how fast is the browser, how reliable and secure is it and how much data does it consumes . The three browsers are wonderful and they are dependent on the choice you make they are not compulsory you must choose one you might be using the whole three(3) and i wrote this post concerning an argument i saw online.
