Everyone needs a browser to explore things and be connected with others. We’ve revisited all these browsers to see which one is bringing more features and which got more stable and secure. Here are the best of the best web browsers for Windows operating system.
When you first install the Windows you came to know it has the Internet Explorer pre-installed even with Windows 10, you get a brand new browser called “Edge Browser” which again fails because there is plenty more Browser available for free. And there is no reason to show loyalty to Microsoft using their browser (like iPhone users have loyalty to Apple)
All the screenshot was taken in Jan 2016, so you will have an idea how they will look on your beautiful Windows 10 (As well as older Windows version).

New. Opera Neon Browser
This one is released about today and just right on the time when I was finalizing this article. So I ran and downloaded the browser from here. Well, it will be very early to make an opinion about this browser. I’m still testing and will update this section.
Turns out the experience is lucid and it does feel really fast, thanks to the Blink engine that powers the browser. It’s a first attempt turn tabs into bubble style and it comes with screen snap feature that comes handy to capture things from the web and send share it to anywhere by drag and drop.
Opera is now running on the Chromium project that allows users to Install all the extensions from the big Chrome web store. It comes with amazing features, unlimited free VPN, built in AD-blocker and the useful Power Saver mode that actually saves some battery. Apart from the new and additional features, it is now the best-mentioned web browser. Moving from Chrome to Opera is super easy, and you won’t even miss anything. The biggest thing that makes Chrome a superior browser is Those hundreds of extension can be installed on Opera too with this tiny Opera add-on. However, it won’t support the Google Voice API for now, nor any other browser support. Google restricted uses of those API in Google Chrome only, so not a major bummer as most of the people don’t even use Voice dictation tools.
What makes it strong:
With the security and speed of the Chromium, project opera became a better and nicer Browser. Not only that you’ll get unlimited VPN for free, just as you know most of the VPN services are Paid. And how we can not mention the ability to pull any extension from the Chrome web store, still it does not support some of the completely as they are only compatible with the Chrome browser. The new tab is much better with the ability to add custom links to it, which I found really helpful to switch across sites.
Where it left behind
Opera browser features a lot of things you ever want in a good Web browser. Although not so many loopholes are there, it does not have any drawbacks which are a good thing. It does mean that it is a good browser, but it falls short competing to the Chrome browser. You’re not missing anything here but also will get some new features, like translating a USD figure into your country currency.
2. Google Chrome
Here we again come to the world’s top web browser. However, chrome is some secret goodies, and a robust interface to help you browse the internet all the time. It’s a RAM sucking. With the speed and stability that have to be taken into consideration makes RAM sucking part negligible. There is nothing more about you do not know about the Chrome Browser unless you know about those amazing features it does have. You can install from thousands of Extension, and Apps to customize your Chrome. Chrome will update itself in the background, ensuring all new security patches and features.
Maxthon can thrill you if you’re looking for something else in term of the User interface and features. Reinvented itself into a more stable than its previous versions those were sluggish. The all new MX 5 version includes three services, MXNote, passkeep, and Umail.In case you fall in love with Maxthon, is available also for iOS, Android, and Windows. You can sync all devices altogether. Unlike others, it has a community of die-hard fans where you can share and talk anything about it. You get many options to customize the interface, and it offers “Night Mode” feature which is I must say is a very useful for those browsing the Internet at night. It also has a resource sniper feature that is similar to the IDM Grabber.
Installation is much easier and takes less than 30 seconds to be used even for the first time.
4. Firefox Browser
Even today Firefox crashes a lot, a lot like hell. Maybe that’s because it’s a non-profit project. This happens when a tab stops responding will cause the whole browser to crash. As work perspective, you may want to avoid Firefox browser. But apart from that, It does serve very well, comes with some pre-installed add-ons such as the pocket that is a good app to save and read content any other time.
Another chromium based browser, so obviously support the Chrome Web store extensions. It gained popularity in a very short span of time. You may want to try this because it has all new features and conventional layout, that you can customize in many ways. In fact, you can choose pre-defined layouts when you run Vivaldi for the first time. It might take time to get used to it and those mouse gestures options seem unnecessary, I admire how Opera’s team made it very configurable, though not the great browser. Talking about the sidebar, it has shortcuts to bookmarks, history and a built-in Note app to write anytime while being on a site.
On a second glance I figured out Vivaldi is not for everyone type browser, it can adapt to your needs and that what makes it stand out from the crowd. Most of the browsers haves the same interface a flat window, and a bunch of tabs and browsing may have lost the fun, but it’s not with this browser. Maybe the same reason the Opera team built a new Browser that tends to be a personal browser.
6. Chromium Browser
Chromium is an open source browser so it comes with those Linux distros just to avoid any proprietary uses. As the Chrome browser is based on this and so some other browser. If you’ve (sure you did) used Chrome, then Chromium is the same but without anything related to “Google” as there will be no trademarks of google, neither google will track you because it has DuckDuckGo default search engine.
Try These Best Web Browsers for Windows
Now, this is the list of best Browsers for Windows maybe it’s the future of browsing. Especially I want to mention the Opera Neon, as the first browser to come with with a hyper-physical design and interesting features. No matter which one browser you are using or going to use after glancing this article, Neon is a must try browser and it’s available for both Windows and MAC. If you are looking for more, those niche browsers you can find them here.
Opera team is really doing outstanding work here by working on completely new ideas on how a browser should look, and changing the concept of a same and dull looking Browsers.
