Home Forums Other IE11 outperforms Firefox and Chrome Reply To: IE11 outperforms Firefox and Chrome


I haven’t done much comparison testing between various browsers myself, but I do know that IE11 is not nearly as bad as previous versions, and definitely not as bad as the public opinion makes out to be.

(It’s probably also not the best browser in the world.)

If you’re looking for specific reasons…The days of “IE is worse than any other browser in every single way” are behind us, so yeah, I’d say IE11 is probably better than other browsers in some ways, and worse in other ways. There’s no reasoning needed, IMO. That’s just how things work — a browser (like Chrome, or Firefox, or whatever) simply can’t be the best in every single field.

But again, that’s just theoretical stuff, I can’t say I specifically experienced anything like this myself.
