Many internet users today know of FireFox, Safari, Google Chrome, and Internet Explorer. Little do these people know that other web browsers do exist and that some of them actually provide some competition to the more popular browsers out.
This article will give you the details on the top five “best of the unknown” web browsers out right now. All of the browsers listed can be used by everyone from an office worker or manager, to a at home user. Give each browser a try and leave a comment below telling what you think about it.
Lunascape is the world’s only three engine browser. People that have used this browser have reported a significant decrease in capability issues, display problems, and long loading times. Back in 2010, Lunascape was 20 times faster than IE8 and to this day keeps up to speed and is even faster than some of the more popular web browsers out!
SlimBrowser is a small and secure web browser for Windows packed with many features. Besides the built in pop-up killer and AD filter (which both work incredibly well), SlimBrowser comes with an intelligent form filler, quick search box, and a auto-login function.
Camino is an open source browser developed to provide the best possible experience for MAC OS X users. With security features like malware and phishing protection, Camino could be one of the safest browsers out.
K-Meleon is an extremely fast and customizable web browser designed mainly for Windows. It was developed by Mozilla (makers of Firefox). The browser is free and is open source and is extremely lightweight.
xB Browser is the most popular free, open source browser in the world. xB Browser allows you to securely and anonymously browse the internet while bypassing firewalls and website censorship. This browser is also jam packed with features. These include, DOM object and cookie protection, cross-site scripting attack prevention, user-agent cloaking, and java proxy control.
Give all of these a try. Leave comments below on which one you like best!
It has been announced that Samsung will be revealing their own mp3 player based on their Galaxy S phones in order to compete with Apple’s iPod touch at CES next week. The mp3 player looks very similar to the Galaxy S phone but of course will not actually have the phone capabilities. However, it will be running on Android 2.2.
Not much is known about the device yet but reports say that it will be 9.9mm wide with a 4 inch LCD touch screen display. Besides running on Android 2.2, the device will have a 1GHz processor, 3.2 megapixel camera with HD video playback. It of course will have Wi-Fi, bluetooth, and GPS capabilities and an expandable MicroSD card slot. And like all Android devices, you will be able to purchase and download apps from the market.
So not much is know yet, but from what is, it looks to be a great competitor to the iPod Touch and the Zune HD. In my mind, it looks like Samsung is catching on to Apple’s selling techniques with a competitor to the iPhone, iPad, and now iPod. What are your thoughts? Leave a comment below.
That’s right, as the title says, multi-core processors have now come to the mobile phone industry. Earlier today, LG announced that Europe and Asia will be the first to see the first phone with multi-core processing power, the Optimus 2X. The smartphone is a Google Android phone and comes with the dual core Tegra 2 chip made by Nvidia.
Now not too much is known about the phone but the dual-core is enough to draw some people in. With this new processor(s), the phone’s overall speed will increase significantly, it will be able to playback 1080p video without any lag, and it is said to increase webpage loading by an outstanding 33%!
So although not much else is known about the phone, I already give it a big rating because of the dual-core processor. What are your thoughts? Comment below!
Earlier today, Apple announced that one of their latest products, the iPad, will be available to Verizon Wireless users on October 28th. The iPad and its bundle will cost $630 for a 16GB model, $730 for a 32GB model and $830 for a 64GB model. Besides this, Verizon will also offer a $20 monthly data plan for up to 1GB of data.
Although this is great, Verizon will unfortunatly not be selling 3G versions of the iPad. To replace this, they will be selling the regular Wi-Fi iPad with their own mobile hot spots which will allow users to connect to the internet anywhere where the 3G network can be used.
Many people believe that this is a start to something great. With Apple making a “bond” with Verizon Wireless we could start seeing Verizon selling more Apple products such as the iPhone as early as early next year.
What are your thoughts on the Apple-Verizon bond?
That’s right, as leaks have recently shown, programmers in Silicon Valley are finalizing Google’s newest product, the Google TV.
The company says that this will be no ordinary television. And I would have to agree with them. I mean, not many TV’s offer you to not only watch TV, but to access the internet, interact on facebook and twitter, playing online games and listening to music.
With the click of a few buttons on the remote, a user can switch between TV channels, websites, online video, and traditional shows recorded on DVR. Besides all of this, you will also be able to bookmark your favorite applications, websites and, get this, television channels!
The device will be available to the public later this month that can be attached to an existing TV or a built in feature for Blu-Ray DVD players.
The Google TV already has a competition, the Apple TV, but to me the Google TV looks a lot better. Which one looks better to you?
