PC World: Best web browsers 2018: Chrome, Edge, Firefox, and Opera go head-to-head. “Let’s take a look at the four major (and modern) browsers to see how they stack up in mid-2018. A few things have changed since we looked at the top browsers just a few short months ago. Microsoft released the April 2018 Update in April, and in our tests it seemed to have a significant impact on browser results.”
How-To-Geek: The Best Chrome Extensions for Managing Tabs. “Generally, we don’t recommend using any extensions you don’t have to—they can be a privacy nightmare. But until Google builds some better tab management solutions into Chrome, those of us who like keeping 287 tabs open at once have to rely on extensions to keep us sane. We’ve rounded up some of the best extensions for managing tabs in Chrome. And, while there are a ton of these extensions out there (and everyone has their favorites), we’ve kept our list to well-regarded extensions without reported privacy issues.”
Neowin: Google releases Chrome 67 for Windows with new features. “The latest stable build for Google Chrome was dropped on Tuesday this week, bringing with it a few modest improvements for VR and AR experiences, additional security, and better compatibility with the various sensors found on modern devices.”
Lifehacker: Organize Your Excessive Browser Tabs with ‘Toby’. “I recently stumbled across the extension Toby (Chrome, Firefox), and I’m surprised at how much I love it. So much so that it has replaced the pretty Chrome Delight and Earth View from Google Earth extensions I’ve been using whenever I open a new tab. I’m one-hundred percent Toby now, because it’s one of the best ways I’ve seen to get a little more control over all those open tabs in my browser.”
Neowin: Firefox 60 rolling out imminently, brings sponsored stories and more. “Today is update day for Mozilla Firefox users, as the organization is bringing version 60 of its browser to the general public, and it adds some useful features and some questionable ones. We reported earlier that sponsored content would be making its way to the next version of Firefox, and this is now coming to fruition. The team promises that the feature does not look into users’ data and that it is privacy-conscious. If that still doesn’t sound good, the sponsored content can be disabled through the New Tab settings. The feature comes with a small issue though, as sponsored content might still show up the next time a new tab is opened after it’s been disabled.”
MakeUseOf: 10 Essential Vivaldi Browser Tips & Tricks for Speed and Productivity. “Chrome is designed for the everyman, Firefox is for the security and privacy conscious, and Safari is only available to use on Apple platforms. They’re all relatively simple, and while you can add more functionality using extensions, too many extensions can make things bloated and slow down performance. On the other hand, Vivaldi comes with advanced built-in features that are constantly updated and optimized. Some of its best features aren’t even available as extensions in other browsers! Here’s why Vivaldi is a dream for power users.”
Make Tech Easier: How to Get the Most from the New Opera Touch . “Everyone seems to have loyalty to their favorite browsers.
