I have got a wonderful feedback from you guys after the last article. Thanks for your feedback. After extensive research work and your valuable feedback, I have decided to share with you about the 8 best browser for Mac in 2019.
Being an Apple fan and brand loyal user of Apple, I have never felt the need of using any other web browser than Safari. But you people have constantly asked me to share my views with you about the rivals of Safari. One thing that I liked about all the web browsers is that they are available totally free of cost.
Anyways I was sharing my personal experiences. I have never used any browser other than Safari till I have received the request from you guy. Consequently, I have started looking for different web-browser as I have to finalize the one.
Have you ever thought that why do you need a web browser?
How many websites do you visit a single day? How many Social media accounts do you have?
Have you ever used Social media apps?

- 1 Concluding Remarks
You name it and you will have it. There is an app for almost all the major sites that we use in our daily life. Yet the web-browsers are extremely important for us. Why?
The question is very basic and of the pivotal importance. This info is for IT professionals and other technical people. The site structure for the mobile and desktop/laptop user is quite different. The mobile app can offer you a very limited info or services.
All the info and services main database lies in the website. All the info is extracted from the website. We just take the example of the Amazon. If you look at the Amazon website in a web-browser it seems like a giant. A huge database of product. Shows you lots and lots of information on the screen in a short time.
While using it on an app, you will not have such vast info. The apps are built for convenience. As everything is available on mobile, on the go. People want convenience in their lives.
Just imagine, how much time it takes to pay your utility bills on cell phones. You pull Your cellphone out of your pocket and open the banking app and in just 3-4 taps, you are done. WoW.
Importance of Web Browser
The web browser is a must to have software if you are using a MacBook. It doesn’t matter to which profession do you belong. The Web browser is must to have. There are multiple and multiple things that are not possible on an app, for them you definitely need a browser. If you are a blogger like me, you will have to write your blogs. How can you do that? If you are a student and you have to make a presentation, you will need to collect data from the net.
There are billions and of Websites available on the internet. For every single website don’t find the app. That site can only be accessed using a web browser. So I would say that I personally recommend using a web browser instead of an app. Rest I leave the choice on you. You know the better for yourself. You have to choose your own.
I prefer the Web-browser over App.

Anyways, let’s get started with the list.
List of Top 8 Mac Browsers
- Omni Web
Google Chrome Top Browser
Google is one of those companies that is leading the web. The vast range of the products of Google is spread all over the internet. I would rather call it a googlenet. Amazing coverage. From Youtube till Blogspot. Android till Google Chrome. What a lovely piece of work Google has produced. Started with the search engine the company is now one amongst the leaders in the business. Google Chrome is one of the splendid pieces of art from Google.
Well, I personally like it due to Gmail, you can create multiple chrome account and can handle multiple tasks by using a single browser. I was new to google chrome, but the time I have spent on it and the way I have explored it. It has really blown my mind away. Hats off to Google. The Chrome uses

- Fee and Open Source.
- Splendid user interface.
- Instant search Capabilities.
- Multiple Google accounts.
- Easy Social Sharing.
- Can use multiple google apps
- Sizzling Chrome extension.

All these Qualities makes google one of the best web browsers in my opinion.
I have ranked Safari on the 2nd place. Although Safari is one of my favourite browsers, but after exploring Google Chrome, I had to change my view.
Some of the splendid features of Safari are,
- Apple’s Own Product.

- Available since 2002
- 79 languages.
- Relatively safe.
Open Source, free to download for Mac.
To be honest. I like the Opera browser very much. The reasons are the advancements in the browser on regular basis. Opera is Developed by one of the most recognized names in the world of IT Industry, Opera Software House. Some of the salient features of the Opera web browser are,
- Open source

On the 5th slot I have decided to place the Torch. I must say, it is a web browser that you must have to try at least once. There is a strong reason behind that. The torch is designed basically for Mac. Lets have a look at some features of Torch.
- Unique Browser.
- Designed for Mac
- Chromium Open Source Code.
- Wide Functionality.
- Splendid social sharing.
6th Omni Web
On the 6th place of the best browser for Mac, we have Omni Web. Looking at history. This web browser is not something new name to people. Omni web was known to people around 15 years ago. The issue that Omni Web faced was that it was not the free and open source. It was available to the Mac users for 40 Dollars approx. Let’s have a look at some of the features.
- Designed for Mac
- Free to use
- Cocoa Interface of Apple.
It was never so easy for me to rank the web browsers for Mac. I would like to put a disclaimer here as well.
“These rankings are purely based on my own personal observations. I am also a human, you may disagree with me, I have shared my personal observations”
At the 7th position. I have ranked Sea Monkey. And you know what? SeaMonkey is a modified version of Netscape & is a component of the application. SeaMonkey is,
- Better than older versions of Firefox.
- A pretty much easy scrolling.
- Gestures are a bit poor.
Vivaldi is going to enter in the 3rd year of its development. New to the world but has a merger of all features. The amazing thing that most people like about Vivaldi is its resemblance to Google Chrome. Its rendering process are quite similar to that of Google Chrome. The reason of placing it to 8th slot is the age of this browser. The elders deserve respect. Vivaldi is,
Power packed Web Browser.
Multiple Tab options.
Stacks is the name given to the tabs in Vivaldi.
