Low Resource Internet Browsing
Over the last decade or so people have been moving further and further towards Internet/Cloud based services. As such, our dependence on browser technologies has been increasing over time. Some of the more popular out there include:
- Internet Explorer, http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/internet-explorer/products/ie/home
- Mozilla Firefox, http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/new/
- Opera, http://www.opera.com/
- Chrome, http://www.google.com/chrome

Firefox Vs K-Meleon)
