5 of the best web browsers
Internet Explorer 9
Firefox zealots have always looked down on Microsoft’s browser, but the latest release is a big improvement.
Pros: Finally as fast as other browsers, ultra-compact new look, tracking protection to ward off ‘inquisitive’ marketing cookies.
Cons: Support for HTML5 and other standards still lagging, won’t run on XP, Linux or non-Windows mobiles.
Mobile version: The Windows Phone 7 browser is impressive, but there’s no IE for Android or iOS, natch.
Killer feature: Links can be pinned to the Windows 7 taskbar and accessed from jump lists.
