Web browsers serve as the platform through which users from across the globe access the contents of the internet. As of March 2021, an estimated 51 Crore (5.1 billion) people used a browser, according to Internet World Stats.

As of June 2021, the Google Chrome browser accounted for around 65.32% of global market share for internet browsers. Apple’s Safari browser was the second most popular internet browser around the world, accounting for over 18% of market share. Apart from these two, no other browser controlled more than 5% of the overall market share.

We have shortlisted seven of the new-age browsers, that can be strong contenders to Chrome as a tool to access Internet. 

Vivaldi Browser

Vivaldi is an answer to browser fans requesting a more robust, powerful browser. It features impressive customization and access to Chrome's vast library of extensions. Its a fast browser while being light on RAM consumption compared to other browsers.

Vivaldi’s latest update on desktop and notebooks lets you expand tab groups with Accordion Tabs and run browser commands in a sequence with a single shortcut.

Vivaldi CEO Jon von Tetzchner was also the co-founder of Opera, one of the earliest web browsers to have features like pop-up blocking and tabbed browsing. The level of customization and power-user features that set Opera apart are present today in Vivaldi as well, along with plenty more.

Sidekick Browser

Sidekick is a new browser based on Chromium. Designed to be the fastest online work experience, Sidekick's UX is built around the most popular web apps, supports multiple logins, and uses workspaces to keep tab clutter under control.

The browser has an AI-based tab suspender so that Sidekick uses the same amount of memory whether you have 10 open tabs or 100. It also saves memory by automatically suspending tabs that you don't need at the moment. The best thing about Sidekick is that it has built-in search bar with a single shortcut. With this, you can search across all your apps, tabs, and workspaces in seconds.

Sidekick’s also allows to let you work from inside apps that live in the browser, rather than scattered across multiple windows and tabs. Apps like Slack, Skype and WhatsApp can be pinned in the sidebar in a vertical stack where you can easily find and switch between them. It also has support for multiple logins, granular notification controls and the ability to search across all these third-party apps (it offers 'hundreds' currently but says users can add custom adds "which would function just like a bookmark") right from the browser.
