Chrome vs Edge vs Firefox: Which browser to choose in 2020

Internet browsers are a massive and unexplored market in 2020. With the increasing demand and adoption of the internet, there is a demand for internet browsers. Here’s which web browser you should choose in 2020.

Most web browsers typically offer more or less the same set of features. Chrome, Edge and Firefox include common features like bookmarking, password saving, private browsing mode etc.

However, there is a noticeable difference between them. Chrome and Microsoft Edge supports Google’s casting feature. You can easily beam web pages and applications to Chromecast or compatible device. Firefox does not support casting feature.

Microsoft Edge has a unique feature called Collections. Which works great for managing multiple tabs. Chrome follows its own pattern of grouping tabs. You can name and colour code the groups in the Chrome browser.

Microsoft’s internet explorer is one of the most infamous browsers for security. It was hacked multiple times over the years. With Edge, Microsoft has tried changing that image. The browser is powered by Microsoft’s SmartScreen technology, which analysis web pages and warns users if they are looking at the malicious site.

Google’s Chrome runs processes in sandboxes and features a built-in warning system for dodgy websites. Another interesting feature in Chrome is password checker, which warns if you log in on a site where credentials are known to be compromised. Firefox has a similar password-checking feature.

Google doesn’t do much to protect the user privacy but it sends automatic ‘Do Not Track’ warning message. It tells the websites not to monitor or record your activities. Chrome also sends alert when a site uses your camera or microphone or accesses your location.

Edge has three-tier privacy control. The basic protection keeps away the most malicious tracking technologies. The balanced setting also helps in blocking cookies from sites. Firefox also comes with Do Not Track feature, which is turned off by default.

The most important parameter in choosing a browser is usually the performance. JetStream benchmark result suggests that Microsoft Edge is the fastest performing browser, followed by Google Chrome and then Firefox.
