2014 Readers' Choice Awards Winners: Web Browsers

Thursday March 27, 2014

Just like filing taxes, announcing the winners of the About.com Readers' Choice Awards has become an annual tradition this time of year. Perhaps a better, more uplifting analogy would be the start of the Major League Baseball season. Each year beginning in February, our readers vote for their favorites in a number of diverse categories such as Best iPad Browser and Best Browser Theme. 2014 even featured two new entries into the fray, Best Google Chrome App and Best Windows Phone Browser, each which featured an impressive group of five finalists.

The votes have been cast, the polls closed and the numbers tallied. Now comes the best part, announcing the winners. Congratulations to all of this year's finalists, especially those that wound up on top of their respective categories. Without further adieu, here they are - the winners of the 2014 About.com Readers' Choice Awards: Web Browsers.

2014 Readers' Choice Awards: Vote for Best Overall (Non-Security) Add-On

Wednesday February 19, 2014

For the seventh year in a row we have opened voting for the About.com Readers' Choice Awards, designed to honor the best products, features and services across many diverse categories. This is the fifth year that About Web Browsers is participating in the awards program, and we're excited to once again let the readers' voices be heard. Between February 19 and March 19, readers can pledge their allegiance to their favorite browsers and browser-related software.

The options in each browser-related category were selected based upon a combination of reader feedback, industry expert input and overall popularity.

The Best Overall (Non-Security) Add-On category features browser add-ons, plug-ins or extensions not related to privacy or security. Privacy and security-related add-ons were given their own separate category. Add-ons which run on multiple browsers and platforms, as well as those only compatible with a specific configuration were allowed. The five that made the cut are certainly a versatile bunch, offering functionality improvements in several areas.

Voting has ended. Winners will be announced shortly.

Note: We have internal checks in place to detect fraudulent voting activity, and in some cases the poll results shown during voting may not reflect the accurate final counts used to determine winners.
