Firefox, Chrome, Opera, Safari, Internet Explorer-which browser to use

Well I was a Firefox user for years once, i have been seen many add-ons, used numerous of them, kept few deleted many espacially those silly toolbars that get attached to it but then my computer got old and a little slow for all the updates from mozilla and i was a bit worried about it.
But then to rescue my brother came along and asked me to switch to Opera browser – well it was well built sleek in design and very very much comfortable to use, its features like password acceptance and remembrance – specially when you press <Ctrl> + <Enter> together it gives you a list of saved passwords to select from and then automatically enter’s the password with the account id or user name. But lacked a critical point that you can not edit your passwords or view them at the time you forget them or want to use them on another computer or browser, well that was quite frustrating but i searched some forums and got a software to do that too. It also had a feature named turbo that says for slow connection, meaning to fasten your web experience, but what exactly it does it – it stops ads from downloading i.e. it downloads only the relevant content that is needed by the user, but in-case you need to view those ads(i.e never required but still) you can click on the play button given in the alternate of the ad.
But overall the Opera browser is good to use, good design and comfortable interface with a good time limit to upgrade itself – and doesn’t annoys you all the time by keeping itself updated and I will rate it 4 out of 5, well you can say I’m a fan of Opera, so let it be
But then came Google Chrome well what can I say about it – it’s built by google all the features built into the smart, techy, cool, comfortable yet smooth function-ability. At first I never really used it as I was too much comfortable with Opera or was too much happy with it at that time, but then I actually wanted a new browser as I had two Gmail accounts and I cannot work with two Gmail ids at the same time on the same browser but Opera did solve that problem for me again it had this private tab feature within itself which when opened works like another browser for you at the very same time and also secures you by deleting all the private tab information at the time when you close your tab, different and unique
Sorry to derail from chrome, as I was saying chrome came like the struck of lightening to me and I actually installed it for another second browser sake thing, but then one day actually used and well the experience was fantastic and mind blowing it had a store added to it, theme panel(well every other browser has it), different add-ons for every kind of person and had an in-built sign feature to it and actually ran a bit faster than Opera or Firefox, it was an amazing experience to me well I actually never believed in them saying a for faster browser experience switch to Chrome – as I never really believed them, until that that day, well it had everything, many of the minor details were taken into account before making it and truly it was a good experience to me.
And yeah I have also checked out the Apple’s Safari browsers but then its only built to accompany Mac computer’s – not that I’m saying you cannot download it for Windows platform, but it serves best to Apple PC’s, but as I reviewed it – was quite an elegant looking browser, keeping everything neat and clean and organized by itself and also having quite an user friendly interface, and its the safest browser after all.
Yeah I totally forgot to say about the Microsoft’s internet explorer – well what should I say about it same old interface slow, difficult to manage, hangs most of the times while sifting through tabs, making unnecessary updates, opens in hours, making me wait but it is just for everyone now, any site , any document, any where it WILL WORK – Good point about it is it will never shut itself down until you do it yourself. Good for everyone, trusted for years now.
My verdict go for
Firefox – Yeah its good from years but responds slow with too many add-ons (3.5 out of 5)
Opera – Too good for people needing to switch to something classic, may say elegance with comfort and fast to browse with ( around 4 out of 5)
Chrome - It is from GOOGLE - the God of internet, its supposed to be an edge ahead (4.5 out of 5)
Safari – Super elegant, cool, organized, a little smart, safest web browser, and the best part it is from APPLE - the giant of electronics (4.5 out of 5)
Internet explorer - Old, trust-worthy, never letting you down but slow and has less built in features but yet works great for windows (3.5 out of 5)
