IE10 Up, FF In Second Place

Quote:
Summary:
Internet Explorer 10 has seen a recent bump in users, thanks to Microsoft's move to make the browser available on Windows 7. Meanwhile, when will Chrome gets its mojo back?
...
Looking at the rest of the browser market — a hotly contested and bitter market to be engaged in — Firefox remains on top of the second place spot with 20.3 percent, while Chrome stands in a good third place with 16.35 percent.

The percentages are pretty much the same for VF & EF also.

I suspect that there is some "member overlap" amongst these forums (VF, SF & EF).

It can't be long until the next FF update.

Update
I was right FF 21 is available.
I've just downloaded and installed it.

Hi there
On the leaked previews of Windows Blue / 8.11 the latest version of IE (Now IE11) is available --this will I'm sure introduce a whole new factor into the equation -- works without needing flash (although flash still available via compatibility mode), uses HTML 5 and latest CSS etc. The other thing which is good it finally gets rid of those zillions of bloated "plug ins" you need to have in a lot of other browsers too.

Whether it will be back ported into Windows 7 I don't know but once it's available publically it should be an interesting comparison in the "Browser wars".

Screenshots enc

Cheers

I use to be a firefox user and loved it because of it's addons. Though I switched to IE 10 for a couple reseaons. First because firefox at least in my experience has slowed down and had more issues every release. Had issues with youtube loading times, sometimes videos not playing. Had no issues at all on ie 10 and yes I had all my flash updated and such when I had FF installed. Also firefox would randomly crash at times without warning. So it just pissed me off to the point that I decide to make IE 10 my default browser and works great and is pretty fast unlike previous versions of IE like in the xp days. Anyways enough of my rambling, I just felt FF has lost its touch. Not surprised about chrome though since I know a lot of friends of mine at school who are techy that love using chrome for it's addons and speed. Would use chrome but I hate the User interface, can't stand it.

Indeed.

If it isn't obvious, I'm a Firefox user.

I don't use Chrome (except for checking web page assignments) because Chrome:
  • Is made by "Big Brother" Google
  • Has an awful GUI
  • Doesn't have the add-ons that I like/use

Actually that is not entirely accurate.
I have one browser toolbar that only works in IE these days, so I occasionally start IE to use it.

When I first tried installing IE10, it somehow updated the toolbar to the more recent and less functional version.
When I tried updating it again, a couple of weeks ago, the toolbar survived unscathed.

I am always intrigued by the fact that some software (e.g. Firefox) crashes non-stop for some users and yet other users have no problems.

I used to get (random) shutdown crashes with Firefox (they stopped after I installed v17).
My observations (using Process Explorer) indicated that Flash Player was the culprit (on my PC).

Flash Player would try to start running, as Firefox was closing.
It still does it to this very day, despite hundreds of patches/updates!

I'm probably not the only user that visits these forums using a browser that is not the default one on the computer and not the one used most often. I use Firefox for forums and IE10 most everywhere else.
