In early 2012, About Web Browsers participated in the About.com Readers' Choice Awards. Readers were asked to nominate their favorite browsers and browser-related software in the following categories: Best Major Desktop Browser, Best Android Browser, Best iPad Browser, Best iPhone/iPod touch Browser, Best Overall Add-On, Best Privacy/Security Add-On, Best Small Market Desktop Browser, Best Browser Theme, and Best User Script.
After a busy nomination period, five finalists were chosen in each of the aforementioned categories. From February 22 through March 21, 2012, readers cast a flurry of ballots each day, resulting in some hotly contested races as well as a few in which the winner dominated from the gate.
We would like to thank everyone that took part in the process and are extremely proud to present the winners of the 2012 About.com Readers' Choice Awards: Web Browsers. Click Next to unveil the winners!
