  • For Android the best browser is Google Chrome but that is only cause Google doesnt give all its features on other browsers.

  • IE11 is very Fast , Google Chrome is the Fastest , Opera is the Smoothest , Firefox is the Best . Oh and Safari I don't Know , I'm Using a PC . I have tried it Before it's Fast but I think it Doesn't have the Ability of Tabbed-Browsing . Isn't It ?

  • 1. Internet Explorer 11 - works pretty well, and it has now beta version of Adblock Plus.

    2. Opera - it was great before it became another Google based browser.

    3. Maxthon - great browser but it needs a proper Adblock extension.

    4. Safari - no idea.

    5. Firefox - maybe the best and most stable browser ever.

    6. Chrome/Chromium - effectively ruined by Google.

  • Windows users can download safari 5.1.7 from this link :

    It runs very fast in my pc and adblock for safari (beta)runs very great safari. Also safari is responsive, though outdated, can even laods google's new look of website can load.
    But apple unsupported it !

  • @CoOl KinG

    Would not recommend sing Apple Safari for windows as it is unsupported, which means no more security updates either. Safari is a very good overall browser but unfortunately not available for Windows.

  • Try epic browser (based on chromium) from epicbrowser.com which is fast and secure.

  • If you want a more faster version of Chrome (though unstable), or if you love to play with newest features of Chrome, try Chrome Canary. It is fastest as well as dangerous. It has metro mode for windows 8 & chrome os mode for windows 7, although both the modes are same.
    Grab it here (online installer only) : google.com/intl/en/chrome/browser/canary.html

  • Is marathon english? You said it's in China. Is it a english browser?

  • All major browser are very dangerous, not a single one is worthy of any trust at all due to their add-ons.
    Why ?
    Add-ons are able to control your system no matter what people say.
    Want a safe and fast browser then delete all add-ons and plugins as well as any software depending on browsers (java, windows mediaplayer, flash etc.)
    But then you won't be able to do the things you are accustomed too unless you know how to use the command line properly, which is probably way out of your league.

    So, dummies. there is no solution unless you learn how it really works.
    Btw almost all windows users are part of the biggest zombie network in the world, which is run by :
    Microsoft, Google, Yahoo. FBI, CIA, RIAA, etc.
    And all they want is your money or put you in jail, don't expect them to help you unless you pay them.

    I call them just : LEGAL CAPITALIST SCUM

    Remember : 62 people have the same amount of money as 50% of the world population and are all part of the above mentioned agencies/companies.
