Safari is the default browser for Mac and iOS devices. Safari offers featured additions like “Siri” Apple’s vocal search assistant and “Reader View” that simplifies a webpage making it easier to read.
Recommended 2nd browser is Chrome as it works intuitively with the iOS system and can be added to work with iPhones and other Apple devices.
Google Chrome works seamlessly with a PC or Android device. For many Androids Chrome is the default browser connected directly to the operating system. With a Google account, you can access additional plugins and other Google products. Security is never an issue as Google automatically updates all of their products protecting you from online security threats.
Firefox is an open source application created by the Mozilla and volunteer developers. Although not as fast as Chrome it is updated automatically protecting you from online threats.
Opera is the longest running browser offered on the web. Some sites aren’t built for the Opera platform making the websites display not as they were intended.
