Netscape Navigator Leaves Web Browsers Industry

By | December 29, 2007 | 8 Comments

Netscape Navigator Dead SkullSeems everyone is talking about that right now. You got it right. According to the article (posted in Netscape blog), after February 1’st, AOL won’t be developing any further Netscape Navigator releases. The browser will be left on its own fate. Eh… Remember old times?

Netscape Navigator Dead
Netscape Navigator Market Share

It was the world’s most popular web browser and now its over. Internet Explorer will be next? I bet it will, I bet it will. If Microsoft will continue to use same “logic” while developing IE, someday you might see similar topic like this, just about Internet Explorer.

As for now, most of the current Netscape Navigator users will probably switch to Firefox and increase its market share.

That’s it. Check Netscape Navigator at Wikipedia if you want to remember old times.

By | December 13, 2007 | 2 Comments

2007 November Browsers Market Share ResultsBit late, but we have to do that anyway, November web browsers market share (see October stats here).

As for November, Internet Explorer continues to lose its market share, this time it felt from 78.36% to 77.35% (1.01% decrease). Well… Still a leader.

Not a big surprise, Firefox hits 15% and even reaches a total of 16.01%, that’s a nice gain, from 14.97% to 16.01% (1.04% increase).

Safari lost some market share on October; however, they’ve got a nice increase this month, from 5.09% to 5.14% (0.05% increase).

According to HitsLinks, Opera increased its market share as well. This time by 0.07%, and moved from 0.58% to 0.65%. However, they had almost 1% last month. Something is wrong with their data I guess. Oh well…

Bad days for Netscape, it continues to lose its market share, this time Netscape market share felt from 0.66% to 0.60% (0.06% decrease).

No idea why, but HitsLink shows wrong data at this moment, says 0.03% market share for Opera Mini, while it should be 0.66% or so…

Here’s a graph of current browsers market share. Thanks to HitsLink.

Internet Explorer, No More “Click to Activate”

By | November 8, 2007 | 1 Comment

Internet Explorer Remove Click to ActivateInternet Explorer news… I am sure you do know that annoying “Click to Activate” “feature”. Good news, Microsoft had finally licensed the technologies from Eolas, and that means… Yes, no more “Click to Activate”. However, you will have to wait a bit. The first preview release which is called “Internet Explorer Automatic Component Activation Preview” will be released in December. You can expect it in the next Windows Service Packs (Vista SP1 and XP SP3) pre-releases as well. Finally, it will be integrated directly into IE in April 2008.

  • The Internet Explorer 7 online tour has updated how-to’s. Also, the “first-run” experience includes a new overview.
  • We’ve included a new MSI installer that simplifies deployment for IT administrators in enterprises.
  • That’s all! Ok, now serious, what are the changes?

  • Windows Genuine Advantage (WGA) check removed.
  • (Windows XP users). Will this change increase IE market share?

    ZoneAlarm ForceField Beta Released

    By | September 26, 2007 | 0 Comments

    ZoneAlarmZoneAlarm Forcefield beta has just been released for Windows XP and Windows Vista. It should be working with Internet Explorer 6-7 and Firefox 1.x-2.x versions. So what is it all about? It can protect you from various “bad things”. And as they say: “Protect yourself by creating a virtual “You” on any PC…”

    ForceField lets you connect and communicate the way you already do online, only with a combination of protective measures that makes you impervious. It uses a virtualization engine that shields your computer and personal data from Internet and computer-based threats. It also includes numerous protection layers to combat phishing, spyware and dangerous file downloads.

    Isn’t that a good idea?

    More details.

    It’s a Beta only, still many issues needs to be fixed. However, feel free to try it if you are interested.

    Known issues:

  • Virtualized surfing – Creates a “bubble of security” around your browsing session that works two ways: it protects your PC from Web site threats such as drive-by downloads; and protects your browsing session from threats on your PC
  • Seamless use – surf as you always do without any special knowledge required and no interruptions
  • Keylogger jamming – protects your browsing, banking and shopping by disabling keyloggers/screengrabbers that may reside on your PC
  • Anti-spyware scanning during your browsing session to protect you as you bank and shop
  • Phishing and fraudulent Web site warning and protection
  • Dangerous download scanning and protection
  • Private browsing to completely erase your surfing tracks from your PC (not yet in the beta)
  • Svelte proportions – ForceField can be deployed to any PC within about 30 seconds in its Instant ForceField form (not available in current beta), making it convenient for on-the-go use on shared public computers.
  • Full known issues list.

    Learn more.
