In this installment of our digital stats post series, we look at the internet browser wars and some of the usage statistics for the major players like Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome and Safari.
12/5 Update: According to AllThingsD, Mozilla and Google are still actively negotiating a search deal.
Original Post: Over the past three days, internet browser Firefox has been in the news quite a bit- and not much of it good…
First, PCWorld tells us that Firefox lost its position as the second-most used browser to Chrome….
According to Computerworld, Microsoft has decided to develop IE10 for only Windows 7, leaving the users of Vista, XP and (if there are any) anything older out of luck.
Its a strange move for Microsoft. A few weeks ago, we learned that Firefox4 had beaten IE9 in their first month of existence. I wondered then if part of Microsoft’s problem was that IE9 did not work with Windows XP (54% of their users) and if they may see this as a problem and update IE9 to work with XP.
