When we talk about web browsers, the first thing that comes to mind is either Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome. No one uses Internet Explorer anymore . Moreover, no one talks about the other available browsers out there that are as impressive or even greater at times. I have compiled a list of alternative web browsers that will end your Chrome or Firefox dependence. No one wants to use a sluggish browser. Upgrade for the better. Trust me, these are way better.
