Category: Internet Explorer
Details are now published online.
Now here is something that does not exactly help the “buggy and old” IE public perception. Back in November and earlier this year in January, Microsoft was notified about the 4 security vulnerabilities that affect both Internet Explorer for desktop as well as smartphones and never bothered to fix them.
In fact, the software giant has now stated that they failed to do so because “there were no attacks reported”, hence they did not bother to do so, not to mention that Internet Explorer will also be replaced with Microsoft Edge later this year.
With the announcement of Windows 10 RTM, the software giant has also revealed more details about some of the OS specifics and their software.
One of such mentions was about Microsoft Edge, which has also been promoted to the stable build. If you were reading FavBrowser for quite some time, then you should remember that we also published early Edge benchmarks where it dominated everyone (including Google Chrome) on their own benchmarks.
In case you are wondering if these claims are still valid then good news, as Microsoft has now shared that Edge is still #1 on WebKit’s Sunspider, Google’s Octane and Apple’s JetStream benchmarks. By how much exactly?

It‘s the first day of the summer right here and what better way to start June than to publish fresh mobile market share data numbers.
If you need further proof that Microsoft did indeed took some drastic steps cutting down all the Internet Explorer fat and legacy code that came with it, check the latest Jet Stream (owned by Apple) and Octane 2.0 (owned by Google) benchmarking suite results.
Just recently, we have revealed that Google Chrome has crossed the 25% market share mark on the desktop and now it looks like the search giant has even more things to celebrate. As it turns out, over the course of last month, Google Chrome on mobile has too reached a new milestone and surpassed the 30% mark, up by 2.28 points, from 27.78% to 30.06% and is as close to overtaking Safari as ever.
