Can I have more than one Internet browser installed?

Google Chrome browserYes, in fact it's something we recommend. Many Microsoft Windows users are under the impression that they're stuck with Microsoft Internet Explorer as their only browser. However, a browser is a software program, and like other software programs, you can have as many on your computer as you like with no conflicts, since they all act independently. Below is a listing of the top alternative browsers you may want to consider trying.

Alternative browsers

Why should I run an alternative browser?

Often because an alternative browser may have something that is not available with the browser you're currently using. Many times we hear from users who try another browsers on how much they like the look or feel of the new browser, how much faster it is, or how many more options or add-ons are available that they like.

For anyone who designs websites, having more than one browser is a must, since the page you're designing may be laid out differently or not work in one browser, but may work in another.

Is it safe to run multiple browser at the same time?

Yes, because they all act independently, you can run different browsers at the same time.
