30 Comments on Top 10 Browsers of 2011

  1. Great work to pur everything together and create such a list. Of all the browsers Mozilla is the best and it is truly the first and it will remain the first.

  2. Still, Firefox is the best although I am surprised with the stable popularity of Opera. This browser has had its followers and fans and has occupied the certain niche in the market.

  3. Gauthaman, amazing article. 😀 Lovely flow and well laid out as well.
    As editor, the credits partly go to me. 😛 😀
    Great job 😀

  4. I have lost my back/forward/history buttons on my browers ontop, I have my google and yahoo bars uptop and I dont understand but I have a links bar also which I want to get rid of.
    What has gone wrong.

  5. I use Maxthon and Internet explorer. Explorer is okay but I love Maxthon. Maxthon is kinda slow in some ways though, so I’m going to try Safari even though I don’t have a Mac(:
