With the Firefox 10, Opera 12 and Internet Explorer 10 releases just around the corner, guys from TomsHardware have decided to test the latest stable builds of the top 5 web browsers on both Windows 7 and Mac OS X Lion.
How did your favorite web browser perform? Let’s find out.
Even though there are “unofficial” 64 bit versions of Firefox floating around the Internet, none of them have gained any significant attention from the general user base.
Thanks to Waterfox, a highly optimized version of Firefox specifically designed for the Windows x86-64 users, this 64 bit flavor might gain some momentum.
Happy New Year!
It’s that time of the month again when we look at the market share results for the last month. How your favorite browser did finish the 2011 race? Let’s find out.
Already broken through the 50% barrier, Internet Explorer share continues the downtrend, this time it has decreased by 1.19 point, from 48.95% to 47.76%.
With Christmas approaching at a rapid rate, Microsoft has decided to launch a HTML5 powered web site “Let It Snow”, which showcases the benefits of GPU accelerated graphics.
If your are up for a challenge, set the number of snowflakes to 4,000 and enjoy the show. There is even a hidden message for you to “uncover”.
However, in case your web browser can’t handle that much snow, there is always another option: IE9 or IE10.
Google denies the charges.
Remember the study by Accuvant, which concluded that Google Chrome is the most secure web browser?
NSS Labs, a California based company that publishes web browser security results of its own, has issued a statement, which claims that Google is pretty much on its own now and has already done some dirty things to undermine Firefox’s and other web browsers growth.
AdBlock Plus, a popular extension for Google Chrome and Firefox, has issued an update, which now allows non-intrusive advertising by default.
Following such “drastic” move, add-on authors have received a lot of negative feedback, blaming them for all kinds of problems.
Google funded study confirms.
Accuvant, the US based research, firm has published a new study, which compared security features of the three most popular web browsers: Internet Explorer, Google Chrome and Firefox.
As it turns out, the search giant funded study has made a conclusion that Google Chrome is the most secure browser out there, followed by Internet Explorer and Firefox.
