Let's discuss some things on each browser for windows, not MAC, first we will take a look at the pros and cons of each and then get into detail further in.
Internet Explorer 7+:
Easy for normal every day users since I.E. has been around for a very long time
Well slowly they are getting better (poorly slow, but slow)
Faster page loading with IE9
Better font feel compared to Chrome (pixel ration set higher now)
Alert for too many add-ons if your system is bogging down!
Does not handle such CSS codes
and so many more :(
Firefox 3.5 15.0.1:
Easy accessing Plugins and more!
Handles more CSS codes
Well lets say IE beat FF in speed test time, not by much but it did :( which is sad. But I can deal with it!
Before we get into Chrome, let's state that I.E.8+ and FF3.5+ have been fueding for years, and alot of the features that FF has now IE8 had first. Like tabular web browsing, and inPrivate browsing. Like I said FF has it now. Personally I use both IE9 and FF version 15.0.1. Yes in terminology 3.5 upgraded very fast to 15 now there is a 16.0 beta out. :) hopefully that speed test will crush IE.
Now on to Google Chrome
Functionality and small file size
Handles more CSS coding
Feeds off other browsers (by this I mean Chrome copies FF and IE)
Chrome is for some people I personally do not like Chrome since FF is better.
Ok now lets look at some things in coding wise.
jQuery 1.8.1- supported by all browsers
CSS3- supported by all browsers (IE has some elements that it can not handle)
HTML5- Supported by all browsers
IE6 and lower- needs CSS2 HTML 4.0.1 and jQuery 1.4.3
FF and Chrome handles higher versions of the coding in older versions of browsers.
The feud between browsers will always continue. FF15.0.1. is my favorite, and IE8+ i use to see what my users will see. Chrome handles alot different so I just do not bother with it. I should but I'm judgemental lmao.
What is your opinion and let me hear your pros and cons on each.
