Windows 7: Firefox Gains Ground, I.E. Falls Further

Firefox Gains Ground, I.E. Falls Further

Its not definitive but shows an ongoing trend that Internet Explorer continues to lose ground to all the other browsers.

Internet Explorer fell from 62.09% to 59.49%, while Firefox rose from 28.75% to 30.33%. But Firefox isn't the only browser that's gaining market share. Opera, recently released the beta version of version 10 of its browser, rose from 3.23% to 3.36%, Safari, recently released version 4 of its browser and hitting 11 million downloads in three days, rose from 2.65% to 2.93%, and Chrome rose from 2.42% to 2.82%.
IE's market share falls below 60%, Firefox surpasses 30%

Whats the difference beetwen Iron and Chrome?


Chrome... gets critic from data protection specialists , for reasons such as creating a unique user ID or the submission of entries to Google to generate suggestions.

SRWare Iron is a real alternative

The current version of Google Chrome uses Version 530.5 of the Rendering-Engine WebKit, how the Browserstring tells. In Iron we obviously use the most actual WebKit-Version (530.9).

Actually I think this was expected.. even with previous versions of FF I think it was way better than IE.. 3.5 just made it even more clear.

Ground Issues?
Well, this isn't really Windows 7 related, but more hardware related. I got my brand new Dell Studio XPS 1640 yesterday as a replacement system for my malfunctioning XPS. And...apparently this one has an issue too...a worse issue. If I move the monitor the correct way, the screen colors urn...
