When it comes to browser performance, Safari just barely beats out Chrome and Firefox, but all three crush older browsers. Of course, performance isn’t everything. Safari may be the fastest browser, and, since it was developed by Apple, is likely the most efficient when it comes to battery life (another review of that will come later), but there are other features to consider. Opera can do ad blocking and open a VPN connection without plugins. Google Chrome will sync your settings across all of your devices, so if you have multiple phones, some on Android, some on iOS, and some on Windows or macOS, you can find all your same settings and favorites. Firefox can also do this. Both Chrome and Firefox have a wide array of add-ons available on the desktop, so you may want to use either of these to both sync your settings and, on the desktop, make use of a wide array of customization. iCab is perfect for more advanced users, as it comes with a wide variety of options, including an option to make your iOS device look like a desktop computer to websites, so you always get the desktop version of a page. Safari has dual-page mode and syncs with iCloud across your iOS and macOS devices, and also has battery battery life on macOS than Chrome or Firefox. There are many reasons you might choose one browser over another, but performance is certainly a key one for many people. Safari might be the best when it comes to performance, but only slightly on iOS, and is that what matters to you most?
Oh, and, as promised, here’s Mozilla Firefox’s brave little test pilot, who has helped Firefox test their new browser features. I know it’s so cute it makes me want to use Firefox too!
