    2- This is the best English learning site I have ever browsed? -- Makes it sound like you stopped by, looked around, and left. It doesn't sound like you connected with it very much.
    3- This is the best English learning site I have ever visited? -- Okay. Not sure if you'll visit again.
    4- This is the best English learning site I have ever logged on? -- You could say "logged on to" but it's not a great choice. It's just not idiomatic.
    This is the best English learning site I have ever seen. -- This would work too.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    What would be the best to use when I would like to recommend this site to someone else?

    Not a teacher.

    you could say,"this is the website I found very useful" or "this is the website I've been visiting for quite some time now, and I have found it very useful"
    or"this the best website I have come across"

    kindly correct me as well, if I commit any error.

    Re: visit/brows/log/be?

    But why "it" after having used "this"?
    "This is the website I found it very useful"
