The browsers I chose to work with and their webites:
I recommend Google Chrome. I chose Google Chrome because I apprciate the features that are on it and because I have worked with Chrome for awhile and therefore am used to it.
Thanks to this website's information about browser features, I could identify browser features much easier:
I searched the question “What are good podcasts to listen to?” and I noticed there were differences in how each browser handled the question.
Google Chrome : I typed my question into the search bar and it searched the question on Google. I received some recommendations.
Microsoft Edge : I typed my question into both the search bar on the top of the page and the one in the middle of the page had them search my question. The search bar on the top of the page took me to Google, whereas, the search bar in the middle of the page took me to Microsoft Bing. Microsoft Bing gave me different recommendations then Google.
Mozilla Firefox : I typed my question into Firefox and it sent me to Google, unless I clicked below the question. Below the question it gave me the choice to search my question on another format such as Microsoft Bing. I received some recommendations.
The Back Navagation button:
Back Navagation button worked the same on Chrome and Edge, however on Firefox after I searched something it would not let me use the Back Navagation button to go back to the home page. However, this could be because they saw no need for it due to there being a home button.
Google Chrome : The back navagator button did allow me to go back to the home page after I had searched something
Microsoft Edge : The back navagator button did allow me to go back to the home page after I searched something
Mozilla Firefox : The back button did not allow me to go back to the home page after I had searched something
Google Chrome : There was a home button
Microsoft Edge : There was a home button that I could select in settings.
Mozilla Firefox : There was a home button
If I tried to close the entire browser by pressing the “X” in the top right corner of the screen, would the browser ask if I was sure I wanted to close them?:
Google Chrome : Chrome did not ask if I was sure I wanted the page(s) to close
Microsoft Edge : Edge did not ask ask if I was sure I wanted the page(s) to close
Mozilla Firefox : Firefox did ask if I was sure I wanted the pages to be closed, however, if it was a singular page it would not ask me.
(DISCLAIMER: These browsers may have reacted the ways that they did because of the preferences that could have already been set on this computer before I could use them in their unaltered forms.)
Google Chrome : Chrome gave a nice amount of appearance customization tools. It had many themes that I could pick through google as well as download from the chrome web store. I found that the font style could be adjusted as well as font size.
Mozilla Firefox : Firefox gave a very nice array of appearance customization tools. It allowed me to adjust background color, font color, font style, font size as well as link colors.
Microsoft Edge : Edge gave an okay amount of appearance customization tools. The background theme setting could be dark, light, or system default. The font size and font style could be adjusted as well.
