We will present about web browsers.
The kinds of web browsers are Internet – explorer, Google chrome, Safari and Fire fox etc. [7]
First, Internet – explorer is the most popular in the world[1]. It supports Active X, and is the most popular in Korea overwhelmingly. But It is slower than the others. And It has weak security because it has Active X. [4]

Second, Google chrome has the fastest speed [2], good security and is very simple. But in Korea, it isn’t useful, because most Korean webpages use Active X. For example, banks, game sites, etc. [3]

Third, Safari has good design and is useful in apple’s machine. It’s bad point is that it has low compatibility with non – Apple machines. [5]

Finally, Firefox is the second most popular in the world.[1] It has many options designed by people. But it uses more memory than the others because it has too many options. [6]
