Few days ago PC World revealed its “The 100 Best Products of 2008” list. The social web browser Flock was voted in the highest position among any other web browsers. It took a solid 6th place. Mozilla Firefox 3 was in the 21st place followed by Apple Safari which was in the 22nd. Hulu (online video service) was voted as #1.
Some time ago Damien Virulhapan from GadgetZone.com.au sent me an email with the link to article called “Group Test: Firefox 3 vs IE 7 vs Safari 3.1“. Feel free to check it.
I don’t know why Opera wasn’t tested, haven’t got any reply since then.
After some strange results, for example: huge Internet Explorer gains and other web browsers drops in the market share, HitsLink made some changes. Yes, it’s time for the “fixed” 2008, April market share report.
After Internet Explorer 8 Beta 1 release, IE increased its market share by 0.03% (from 74.80% to 74.83%) for a first time since October, 2007. Continue Reading
Ready for some more browsers fights? OK, I know that this is not a “fancy” test, it’s a basic one, but still interesting to check, right?

Its a new month again and we already have March browsers market share results. So let’s begin. Shall we?
Yet another bad month for Microsoft Internet Explorer, this time its market share decreased by 0.08%, from 74.88% to 74.80%.
Mozilla Firefox is doing really well, this time it managed to increase its market share by 0.56%, from 17.27% to 17.83%. Continue Reading
Apparently I did that after installing Safari on my Windows machine as Apple’s Software License Agreement says:
“2. Permitted License Uses and Restrictions. A. This License allows you to install and use one copy of the Apple Software on a single Apple-labeled computer at a time.”
Although most of people said that Opera 9.5 was the first web browser ever to score 100/100, I disagree with that. What about you? Actually, I even don’t understand why they had to report that at all as fans started to submit stories to digg, reddit and other news web sites and could confuse some of the readers.
