You can set my browser’s home page to any website you prefer, however. Here’s how to change the home page in Microsoft Internet Explorer, Edge, Google Chrome, Opera, safari and Mozilla Firefox.

Choosing an internet browser is a very personal choice now in days, and discussing which browser is the best suited for a user is like discussing religion. Some would defend Firefox, other would prefer Chrome, Apple users would go for Safari and some would even use Opera. I have even got to know people that prefer Internet Explorer! (I swear, I am not joking lol).

From the statistics collected from W3Schools’ log-files since 2002, you can read the long term trends of browser usage.

We see that Google Chrome, Firefox, and Internet Explorer are the most used browsers today.
