Is Mozzila Firefox, Google Chrome or Internet Explorer already installed on a MacBook the moment you buy it? If not, how can you get them?

    No, by default only Safari from Apple comes bundled on OS X. If you want to replace browser you can get them from each developers site. Downloading the file will result in the normal DMG file with instructions on how to install the new software.

    Internet Explorer is not available for OS X.

  • No, It is not. But Internet Explorer is not supported very well on anything, and Google Chrome is a simple Download and Drag into your Applications folder (yes, thats how you install on a Mac - easy).

  • No.Firefox, Opera and Google Chrome aren't preinstalled on a Mac computer.By default, Safari is your only web browser the moment you first start up your Mac.

    Because Safari can sometimes become a hog to your computer, it is advised to download other web browser like Firefox to improve your web experience.

    If you're an Internet Explorer user, please note that IE for Mac OS X has been terminated and there are no plans for a future version of that particular browser.

  • You already have installed Safari, why would you want another internet explorer? You can install google chrome and mozzila fire fox but they are not comparison against Safari.
