    There are so many browsers out there with different twists. Many online reviewers point to one or more reasons for favouring one over the other. This hasn't been easy ride in coming to the conclusion when particularly unrecognized navigating applications are doing what the users want without using much of the system resources, very costumizable, good-looking user interface and to mention but a few.

    Most of the reviews tend to narrow down the best to the popular ones, which I called the famous five - Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Firefox, Opera and Internet Explorer. Which don't address the many features found in the 'unpopular browsers' providing users what cannot be found in them.

    After downloading, installing and uninstalling many browsers as possible the choice to adopt one of the popular browser becomes discouraging. Windows 10 comes to mind as a modern operating system that needs modern browsers to get along with it.

    Results of most benchmarks, time without numbers all rather over and over again, focus attention on the three major areas - the features(list of applications used by the browser to carry out its activities), platforms(this includes the environment the browsers can be run or run) and rendering(this comprises of the engine, if they are open source and javascript compatible). Needless to say anything of the popularity there is this flare the users are accostumed to and has become like an addiction. A form of bias to even see the good in other unpopular browsers out there. I fall into that group of trapped users until I decided to quantify what I understand to be best along what suit my purpose of work not what suites everybody's use.

    I wanted a browser that can load very fast, lightweight, user-friendly, aesthetic, simple, built-in adblock, integrated downloader also provides unbeatable privacy. It is arguably hard to find in a single browser to incorporate all these features. That is all-in-one browser to say the least. The search took quite a time opening page after page, copying and pasting into search engines unsual names to see what people are saying about them. Still I couldn't find what really match the list completely.

    After many try I settled down for two browsers as the best for Windows 10 due to the fact that they can carry out their works gracefully and genuinely. They are very resourcesful, not heavyweight, good-looking, responsive, super fast(as in loading pages) and simple. These are Microsoft Edge and UCBrowser and might not be as impressively splendid as other users might want in comparison to the choices they made but can do wonder in the areas they are good at. Although, I tried Vivaldi I was not so much impressed by the overly loaded options.

    On the final note, browsers are meant to open pages and with the added features to make works easier for the users online.

    What are the best browsers for Windows 10?

    Ha ha ha. :worthy: (I actually did love Netscape)


    Either Firefox (which was built off of Netscape, originally) or Google Chrome. I think the new Opera is nice too. It's built off of Google Chrome, but without all the spying from Google.

    In the end, it's really your choice. But just remember what IE and Edge are always for... To download a better browser.

    QQ Browser's UI is amazing. Too bad there's no English version of it. I'm using Vivaldi at the moment but resort to Chrome Canary most of the time. If Vivaldi can dock DevTools then I'll go Vivaldi all the way.

    Can't be EDGE unless you are very young, say 20 and very, very, very patient. It's going to be awhile with EDGE So.....:D I would say Chrome until EDGE grows up:D

    Can never be edge. If it's integrated deeply into the OS; I see it as a potential security threat. If it was a stand-alone browser that could be easily installed, uninstalled, and upgraded independently... Sure, maybe.

    Opera. It has extra features like VPN and adblock. Very useful browser.

    You can install add-ons to Firefox and get those features too. It is very easy.

    Opera now is superseded by Vivaldi.

    By far the best browser out there

    The free built-in VPN in Opera is not functioning yet. I always get a message below it stating, "Coming soon". Perhaps, it is just a publicity stunt to make people who are conerned about online privacy to adopt the use of the browser.

    Microsoft Edge switched to it from Firefox which I used for 8 years (used a bit chrome , here and there, didn't like it as much as Firefox).
    Smooth scrolling using lots of tabs, feels really smooth, unlike firefox.

    Yes you forgot that if looking for an Opera clone looking to the people who created the Original 20 years ago is surely better than a wannabe replacement.

    Vivaldi is the only answer, aside more amateurish but nice projects like Otter, Qupzilla or Fifth browser.
