Top Ranking Applications (Wakoopa)

TechCrunch Writes

“As a service whose sole purpose is the track the applications that people actually use on their systems, it should be no surprise that Wakoopa has a lot of interesting usage data. On a day to day level, Wakoopa’s data is good, but it’s the aggregate data over long periods of time that can be really meaningful to show how we are using our computers. Today, Wakoopa has released the first such aggregate data with its inaugural State of the Apps report.”

Also not a good sign for Microsoft: The older you are, the more likely you are to use IE. In the youngest age group, 11 to 20 year olds, even smaller browsers like Opera beat it. IE has been losing market share at a steady pace for the past several years.

Back to Basics: IE8 Users Downgrade to IE7

By | March 24, 2009 | 6 Comments

While Internet Explorer 8 mostly receives mixed reviews due to sites compatibility issues, InformationWeek reports that IE8 market share already slipped to 1.86% (Monday data) from 2.59% which was reported on Sunday.

Although this might sound like a bad news, there is also an upside. Because Internet Explorer 8 is not very popular yet, web developers will be able to polish and prepare their websites for IE8 without a big rush, which usually leads to various issues.

As for Internet Explorer 8 market share gain, my best guess is that it will start significantly increase only after Windows 7 release, IE8 is a default browser there.
