Ie Vs. Google Chrome

Introduction

The battle lines have been drawn, with the release of Google Chrome 10 and the update of IE (Internet Explorer) 9, the time has come to decide, which of these two browsers is worth using. Have the recent upgrades and countless revisions by Microsoft finally made IE worthy of standing up to Google's famous Chrome browser? We're about to find out.


In our face between the two browsers, we're going to test them against each other on the bases of speed, security, and compatibility. Buckle up for the fight between IE and Google Chrome.

Speed

Let's be fair and start off alphabetically, Chrome is based on two separate engines , the main frame work is based around the WebKit engine while the browser is powered by V8 JavaScript engine. The two engines make for a blazingly fast browser, especially on computers that can handle a lot of processing power. Chrome's page rendering speeds are flawlessly accurate and Chrome rarely if ever renders a page incorrectly.


As for IE 9, it's built on in-house JavaSript engine called Chakra, and while it shows vast improvements in areas such as as page rendering, reload times and security, it's still rather behind Chrome and it's other competitors. It also scored significantly lower on the ACID, ACID2, and ACID3 tests compared to Chrome. So it seems Chrome is the faster browser.

Security

Google Chrome uses a simple but effective security system. It retrieves two blacklists, one with a list of malware sites and the other list contains information concerning phising sites.

It continually updates these two lists to keep it's users safe from malware and phasing attacks. There is however a flaw to this system, it can't protect users form adds that have viruses or are filled with malicious code. Basically if you a dumb surfer and click every pop, Chrome can't protect you form getting a virus. Though it does run such adds and mini scripts in a private sandbox, so even your computer does get infected it'll still be relatively safe.


As for EI 9, it uses a multi-layered and multi-faceted security system that does not update the two blacklists that Chrome does, it also does not run scripts in a private sandbox, so if you do get a virus it will infect you're computer directly. On the other hand, if you click a malware infected add or script, it will protect you, but it can;t do much against as created phasing attack.
So as long as you surf smart, Chrome is the safer browser.

Finnaly, both browser support that latest standards of HTML 5 and CSS3, including the new video, audio, and picture tags in HTML 5. A direct comparison between the two has shown vast amounts of stability duirng HTML 5 renders by Google Chrome, while IE 9 has sometiems failed to properly format pages and at other times completely failed to recognize certain HTML 5 tags.

Compatibility

This is a no contention issue, Google Chrome works on any and every major OS(operating system), while EI 9 doesn't even work on a older version of it's native OS. So while Chrome will work for every system, EI 9 won't work on Windows XP, Linux and Mac OSX. So if you are wondering which browser is the better one, wonder no more, the answer is Google Chrome.
