Open Recently Closed Tabs in Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge and Firefox

Web browsers are no longer just a program that only corporates and businesses use. Ever since the public got access to the internet, the journey of web browsers has been quite amazing. Did you know that Internet Explorer once used to be the default browser on Macintosh systems?

That changed when Apple went on to develop their own browser named Safari. But there were other browsers that people were using – Netscape and Opera.

Times have changed and the major browser in today’s date are:

  • Google Chrome
  • Firefox
  • Microsoft Edge (Internet Explorer formerly).

Google took the world by storm when they launched the Google Chrome web browser. This new web browser was not only fast, but it also opened pages in a blazing fast manner. But Firefox is also nothing to ignore. It is a really solid browser which is developed by Mozilla and many contributers around the world.

Internet Explorer had a big reputation but only for bad reasons. People used to mock Internet Explorer for being the least advanced browser ever. Even though things started getting better with Internet Explorer 9, the damage was done and after releasing Windows 8.1, Microsoft decided it was time to start all over again and hence Microsoft Edge was born.

Microsoft Edge is the newest player in the web browser market and people have already started appreciating Microsoft for their amazing startover with Microsoft Edge. Even though Edge is pretty new and doesn’t have third party support with extensions and add-ons yet, but I hope Microsoft is going to introduce that soon.
