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.

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.

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.
