The Latest Web Browsers Up Enterprise Ante

by Jim Rapoza
Go back 12 years, and the Web browser found on the majority of business systems was Netscape Navigator. Six or seven years ago, nearly all corporate Web users relied on Microsoft Internet Explorer. But during the last few years—due to security problems, limited updates and improvements in competing browsers—IE has given up much of its stranglehold on the enterprise browser market. Indeed, many business users today run multiple browsers on their systems. But what makes a browser good for the enterprise? Security? Administration features? Performance? In this slide show, eWEEK Labs looks at some of the more enterprise-friendly features found in the latest versions of IE, Firefox, Safari, Chrome and Opera.
