If you are hungry for some answers (and PR fluff), guys at Engadget did a pretty good interview with Johnathan Nightingale, the VP of Firefox Engineering, asking about Internet Explorer (and Google Chrome) dominance, mobile gaming, WebRTC and much more.
Check it out.
May, 2013 Mobile Market Share: Safari, Opera Mini, Google Chrome, Internet Explorer – Up; Android Browser – Down
It’s that time of the month again.
Before we kick start the weekend, let’s do another round of market share reports, starting with the mobile web browsers.
Microsoft funded study confirms that IE is the best.
Back in 2011, we compared IE9 and its competitors to see which one consumes the least amount of power. Spoiler alert: Internet Explorer won and Opera lost heavily.
Well, guys at Fraunhofer Inc. decided to download Internet Explorer 10, Google Chrome 26 and Mozilla Firefox 21 and do a study of their own.
Here are the results:
Another Chrome clone in the making.
Back in 2012, Mozilla promised to overhaul the overall UI in the upcoming Firefox 19 release (see screenshot below). Well, that did not happen.
Now, it looks like someone from Mozilla has finally decided to deliver these promised changes with Firefox 25, which is set to be released in the fourth quarter of 2013.
Because one is just not good enough.
Now here is something that you can add to your schedule later this week as well as next week. The search giant has recently announced two “Chrome Mobile” events but refused to share any additional details, at least for the time being.
However, this does not stop press from speculating and pointing the obvious. Yes, we are pretty sure these are Chrome for Android and iOS related events. See live stream video and counters below.
Another month, another loss.
Launched back in 2002, Camino (formerly known as Chimera) became a better and far faster alternative among Mac OS users, who previously had to rely on Microsoft’s Internet Explorer 5.
Well, all good things have to come to an end as Stuart Morgan, one of the project leaders at Camino, has announced that the browser is being discontinued. As simple as that. That’s the competition for you.
Following the awesome Google Racer experiment, the search giant has just revealed another game: Roll It.
What is it? Roll is a PC and phone combo where a phone is used to aim and roll the ball while the PC renders the result. It’s pretty fun and supports up to 3 players, check the video above to get a better idea.
