The web browser is by far the most important piece of software on your PC. Unless youâ€™re at a workstation crunching numbers or editing Hollywood blockbusters, you probably spend the majority of your computer time staring at a webpage.
Thatâ€™s why itâ€™s important to have the best tool for the job. So much has changed since our last browser showdown in early 2019. Not only is Internet Explorer out, but classic Edge is about to be replaced by Chromium-based Edge. The latter is not officially a part of Windows yet, but you can already download it manually to replace the original (and basically terrible) Edge. For the PCWorld browser showdown 2020 edition, weâ€™ve dumped classic Edge and replaced it with the stable version of Chromium Edge.Â
