The 2012 Readers' Choice Awards Winners: Web Browsers

Not everyone uses one of the "big five" when browsing the Web, as so-called small market browsers fill out an interesting niche. There was nothing small about 2012's finalists, however, as they each claim a loyal following.

Although it looked like there may be some competition early, in the end it was last year's winner who pulled it off once again by an impressive margin. Maxthon, a Windows browser which has been around since 2003 and boasts over 500 million downloads worldwide, is this year's Best Small Market Desktop Browser. Congratulations!
