How do I download and install a modern web browser?

Below is a list of the most popular web browsers. Click the corresponding link and follow the instructions to download and install your new web browser;

Microsoft Internet Explorer

Download: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/internet-explorer/download-ie

This is the default browser for Microsoft Windows and for years was the most popular. However, in recent times it has lost market share to both Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox. Version 10 supports HTML5, CSS3 and SVG. The current version of Microsoft Internet Explorer is 11.

Please note: Only Microsoft Internet Explorer 10 and above is considered to be a modern web browser. Therefore users of Windows XP and Windows Vista who cannot upgrade to version 10 should choose a different web browser.

Mozilla Firefox

In 2003 Mozilla’s browser, Firefox, started competing with Microsoft Internet Explorer. It is a cross-platform browser and works on Windows, Mac OS X and Linux. It features add-ons and extensions to personalise your searches, session restoration, a download manager and pop-up blocking.

Google Chrome

Launched by Google in 2008, It is the most used browser today, and its popularity continues to grow, it also enables multiple profiles in one window and allows you to access your printer from any enabled web app through Google Cloud Print.

Opera

The least popular of the browsers listed, Opera initially required a user fee, but is now free. It supports all major web standards, including HTML5, CSS3 and SVG, and it works on Mac OS X, Windows and Linux.

Apple Safari

This is the default browser for Mac OS and we would not recommend it for other platforms. An interesting feature is it removes advertisements and pop-ups leaving just text.
