Firefox & Chrome are a free web browser developed by Mozilla Foundation & Google, and they are available for Windows, Android, Linux, OS X based devices. Firefox said to be the world’s third most popular web browser with users count of over 450 million users. And Google Chrome is said to be the most widely used web browser in the world. Comparitively I use Firefox more than chrome, as I use it from the initial stage to learn internet so there is some soft corner over it.
