Chrome passes 20% share milestone, locks up 2nd place

Quote:
Google's Chrome browser in July broke the 20% user share bar for the first time, according to data published Friday by Web measurement vendor Net Applications.

But because the browser war is a zero-sum game, when Chrome won others had to lose. The biggest loser, as has been the case for the last year: Mozilla's Firefox, which came dangerously close to another milestone, but on the way down.

Firefox accounted for 15.1% of the desktop and laptop personal computer browsers used in July, a low point not seen by the open-source application since October 2007, a year before Chrome debuted and when Microsoft's Internet Explorer (IE) was only on version 7.

Does this include where Firefox is identifying itself as IE also?

It helps on some sites

As long as Firefox only strives to be another Chrome and Mozilla continues to be Google's lapdog I am sincerely grateful that Firefox is dying a justified and steady death.

I wonder if we're going into another era not unlike when IE6 dominated the market, only this time it'll be a duopoly between Trident (IE) and Webkit/Blink (Chrome).

History repeats itself? (kind of..). I think that might just happen.

Hi there

Are any of us actually bothered --who cares -- if you go into a hotel and switch on your bedroom light do you even KNOW who supplies the power and I suspect you'd care even less -- you just want the light to come on.

Browsers are simply TOOLS -- who really cares whether X is better than Y or has feature A instead of feature B. So long as it works on your device in the way you want it to - choose whatever you want.

As far as IE is concerned it's always going to struggle a bit in these comparisons as there are a lot of new mobile devices that it won't run on.

I regard Chrome rather like Amazon and Google as the "TESCO/ASDA or WALL MART" of computing -- it might be ubiquitious like those Supermarkets - but you won't always get the best product.

Choose what YOU like and what works for you -- these browser war threads are SO OLD HAT don't let's bother with them again.

Cheers
jimbo

I will never use Chrome, I have used Firefox since it first came out as Phoenix. Who really knows what users are using what Browser? If IE was not bundled with Windows , it would not even be on the list!

Where is a good place to share cool tips?
I found a pretty good one and wondered if there was a place where we could all post stuff we find from other places? :D This one minimizes all windows except present window. Windows button AND Home button. Same combination again to bring windows back.
