It has been recently revealed in a report that Firefox is currently at the top of the game when it comes to browsers. Google Chrome is also currently behind Firefox in these wars. This throws light on the sort of tough competition being faced by the companies these days in order to reach the top of the game.
Microsoft’s Internet Explorer has been reeling under a lot of competition in the browser market, with its market share decreasing day by day. It is getting tough competition from Google’s Chrome, Mozilla’s Firefox and Norway’s Opera. At one time, it was the reigning champion of the browser market, but now it is barely holding on to the bandwagon of other browsers as it loses it place at the top.
Google's Chrome has enjoyed steady growth in its share of global web browser market over the past 12 month, and will outdo Firefox by mid of 2012, web analytics firm Net Applications has predicted.
Google’s Chrome might surpass Mozilla’s Firefox to grab second spot after Microsoft's Internet Explorer in the list of the world’s most popular web browsers before the end of this year, Web browser tracking firm Statcounter predicted.
According to Statcounter, Chrome has been seeing impressive increase in its market share for the past two years, while Firefox’s market share has stagnated and even seen its market share steadily eroding.
The latest version of Mozilla’s Web browser, Firefox 4, has come almost two years after the launch of Firefox 3.5, but the long wait didn’t disappoint as the latest version offers some much demanded features.
Firefox 4 is available for multiple platform including Windows, Mac OS and Linux. It comes with a redesigned clean user interface, hardware acceleration and built-in sync. It supports technologies like WebGL, HTML5 and CSS3.
Mozilla claims that the newest version of its Web browser, Firefox 4, has already been downloaded more than 10 million times since it was released on March 22.
Forefox 4 reported as many as 7 million downloads in merely 24 hours after its release, outshining Microsoft’s Internet Explorer (IE) 9, which reported 2.4 million downloads in first 24 hours of its availability.
