    A poorer surfing experience results in a higher battery life, like all things.

      the only bad thing about internet explorer are addon support and retarded bookmarks, otherwise is on par with the rest

    IE 11 Touch > IE 11 Desktop. This shows that the more primitive browser, the longer you can browse. IE 11 Touch should be used only in kindergartens because it’s just a toy

    unrelated to this article:
    there is a new browser called otter-browser that wants to mimic old opera versions.
    It is still in alpha version, but already usable.
    Doesn’t it deserve an article in FavBrowser?
