Undeniably, when it comes to web browsers, everyone would mention names like Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome or Apple Safari. These big names combined more than 90% of the market share for web browsers. Nonetheless, there is always people like me who constantly try other "less famous" web browsers. And being less famous doesn’t mean they are not up to standard or could not satisfy your browsing needs.

Here are some lesser known web browsers that you should try:


Flock is a browser with a focus on social media. It has features built in for just about every social media site you can think of. This browser is built on Mozilla, so as expected, there are also extensions available to expand it’s functionality even more.



Besides basic browsing functionality, Maxthon Browser provides a rich set of features to improve your surfing experience. Some key features include: mouse gestures, anti-freeze, and magic fill which allows your to fill out forms with a single click.



Arora is a lightweight cross-platform web browser. Arora uses the QtWebKit port of the fully standards-compliant WebKit layout engine. It features fast rendering, powerful JavaScript engine and supports Netscape plugins.



SeaMonkey aims to be an all-in-one internet application suite. So not only is it a web browser, but it also includes an email & newsgroup client with an included web feed reader, HTML editor, IRC chat and web development tools.
