Re: List of web browsers for you all

http://www.offbyone.com/ a rather odd browser, somewhat backward in capability, but sometimes works where a site disagrees with IE and content blocker settings, by making it fall back to the lowest common denominator.

Can also be useful as a basic (but safe) HTML viewer.

There is much that it CAN'T do, and at times, that can be its biggest plus point.

Re: List of web browsers for you all

Crazy Browser is simply an IE skin. It's highly disingenuous of those of type of things to claim they are 'browsers' in their own right when they are not.

All the IE security flaws will still be present in such things, yet people are often conned into thinking they must be safe as they don't use IE.

For Windows users, the only REAL, viable alternative browsers are Firefox, Mozilla, K-Meleon, Netscape and Opera. And even then, it could be argued that Firefox, Netscape and K-Meleon are not browsers in their own right either, but simply Mozilla skins.

To say they are skins of each other is a bit underestimating. They use the same rendering engine (Gecko), but FireFox and Mozilla are nothing alike. FireFox was rebuilt from the ground up because Mozilla was such a huge steaming pile of bloatware.

In fact more browsers use Gecko than people realise. The only other 2 really are (Microsoft's) Trident and KHTML

Ah well that's why I said 'it could be argued'....

I don't happen to believe that view myself. But in the same way, they aren't entirely 100% different browsers either, by virtue of the common rendering engine.

Though I prefer Firefox, Opera has no such issues, it's 100% individual.
