If you’re a Mac user and you’re looking for a better browser, you might have found yourself in a dilemma. From Opera and Safari to Vivaldi or SeaMonkey, you have lots of options to choose from. But which ones are truly the best?

  • Safari Technological Preview

    Everybody was surprised a couple of months ago when Safari Technological Preview was released. It connects to iCloud just like the current version of Safari, so you can sync all your bookmarks and gain access to passwords and usernames. It uses its own cookies and it’s faster, while also making the battery last longer, unlike other browsers. However, it wasn’t as tested as the regular Safari app, so it might have many crashes and bugs.

  • Vivaldi

    There are some people who haven’t even heard of Vivaldi, and it’s not surprising, since it’s not that popular. Its goal is to become the browser for the generation that lives online, instead of the one that only enters it occasionally. Vivaldi is similar to Google Chrome and it even runs on the same HTML rendering engine. It has an Adobe Flash plugin which is built-in and you can use the plugins available for Chrome. Moreover, it’s probably the browser with most features you can find.

  • Firefox

    Firefox has been Chrome’s rival since forever, but now it seems that many people have switched to Chrome and quit Firefox. Historically speaking, this was never fully compatible with Mac and it’s not even nowadays. Its interface is classic and hasn’t been updated much. Some of its best features are Firefox Account, which lets you sync almost everything you have (passwords, bookmarks, tabs and more) on all your devices, including iPad and iPhone, and Firefox Hello, which is a browsing session shared with friends. It’s also compatible with Google Chrome and Internet Explorer, but not Safari.

  • Google Chrome

    Most likely you are currently reading is in your Google Chrome browser, since statistics show that it is one of the most popular browsers at the moment. It seems that 70% of the people who surf the net are using Chrome. Currently, the developers are trying to make the browser compatible with the built-in systems found in OS X. Perhaps a big minus of this browser option is the fact that it’s making you use more and more Google products, thus gathering lots of data about you without you even realizing it. But the best part is that you will find hundreds of extensions for every wish and need and web apps that offer virtually anything you can find online. For all these reasons, Google Chrome is the best browser you can choose, except for one small issue: it consumes more battery than you could imagine, unlike the rest of the browsers which are optimized for modern Macs.
