With the growing popularity of HTML5 games and applications, it looks like Google has a vision of its own.
According to the EDGE, during the Develop Liverpool conference in London, Google’s developer Paul Kinlan has announced that Google Chrome will receive gamepad support tin the first quarter of 2012. In addition to that, it will feature a support for cameras and microphones that don’t have to be plugged in.
Earlier this month, the Avant team has a released a dual engine web browser, which as it turns out, wasn’t good enough.
The Atlantic’s Alexis Madrigal came up with it as a practical avocation for the day after Thanksgiving, when many people are paying their folks at home a visit.
Madrigal proposes that if you cannot dissuade your parents from keeping Internet Explorer 6 because YouTube will stop working, “wait until they slip into a tryptophan induced coma and then sneak into the den.”
Months and months after the continuous Internet Explorer’s market share decline, Microsoft’s web browser has finally breached the 50% mark and now sits at the 49.58%, down from 50.97% (1.39 point decrease).
Remember the great web browser war in the 90s? Internet Explorer vs. Netscape, the battle of two titans.
Thankfully, it did not happen and a monopoly was avoided, at least for some time.
