A constant debate has emerged in the browser market over the last few years over which platform -- Google Chrome or Microsoft’s Internet Explorer -- is better.
Those in the Microsoft camp point to Internet Explorer’s pedigree and long-time support for Web standards as proof that it’s a winner. Those on Google’s side take issue with Internet Explorer’s security troubles to make their case.
But so far, the definitive blow has yet to come down.
Even so, the path to victory appears to be far more clear-cut for Chrome than Internet Explorer. The Google browser has a lot of really great things going for it. From a design perspective, it’s hard not to be impressed by its stripped-down design and support for so many Web standards. Simply put, Chrome is easily one of the top browsers on the market today, and at this point, a far better option than Internet Explorer.
Don’t think so? Want to find out why? Flip through the following slides to learn more about Chrome’s unique value proposition in today’s hotly contested browser market:
When it comes time to compare Internet Explorer and Google Chrome, the biggest difference users will find is their design. Google Chrome is built with the latest Web ideas in mind, boasting both usability and a sleek look. Internet Explorer, on the other hand, is crowded and still clings to outdated design elements. To today’s Web users, that matters.
Microsoft has always been criticized for its security troubles. And the outcry over the company’s security woes with Internet Explorer have been its biggest issue. Chrome, on the other hand, is widely viewed as a largely secure browser that can trump Internet Explorer on that front. That matters.
When people head to a browser and try to open a Web page, the software that can display a site sooner rather than later will be most likely to gain their affection. In my experience, Chrome is the fastest browser on the market, loading Web pages far more quickly than Internet Explorer, Firefox, or Opera. If speed matters to you, go with Chrome. You’ll be happy you did.
