Complete database of browsers for your surfing pleasure. Find one you'll love


There are so many browsers on the market today. Within this database, you'll be amazed at how many alternative browsers there are - how advanced they've become, and why installing/trying a new browser can be very beneficial.

You can install and use as many browsers simultaneously as you like. Change your browser and experience faster speeds, improved security, better performances, newer features, anonymity, and sleeker designs.

When comparing a new browser, it may appear to perform faster because 1, it is faster, or 2, it has not been cluttered with junk, add-ons — or extensions that your old browser has - much like cars that people modify and put too much 'junk in their trunk' (boot). Pcs and cars need cleaning and maintenance to make them perform at their best.

Luckily, it doesn't take long to download, install and take them for a ride to see how they perform.

Why Would I Need Another Browser?

Everyone has their own needs when it comes to choosing a browser. If you want to experiment and modify a browser, then use another browser to inspect every element of a browser from the settings.

So, forget spending hours or days trying to fix, or configure a browser, trying to make it more suitable for your personal needs, because a simple change of a browser can help resolve many browser related issues. Keeping them updated is also key

Checked out Polarity Browser and I was pretty pleased with how light weight it was.

Impresive list!

Other articles only include the usual 3-4 browsers and this makes it clear that there are many more options.

Good Job!

Dave_69 on September 30, 2013:

I'm so shocked AND surprised at the amount of browsers available today. Is it really necessary for so many browsers to be available!? Surely, it should be quality and not quantity! But I guess these days, everyone wants a slice of the cake!

krushnach80 on June 30, 2013:
