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.
During my Chinese web browser “Maxthon 3.1 Beta”, review (which is yet to come), I saw an innocent looking button, which suggested me to download some themes, little did I know that this would turn into a nightmare…
The story goes like this… I click on the button to check some themes and strange thing happens: it redirects me to a forum. No problem, I thought, it’s just a Beta, maybe there are no official skins yet.
Now here is something to help you pass the time. Emberwind, the arcade title made by Indie developers, has been ported to HTML5 by Opera Software for your (and their own) enjoyment.
Don’t worry, it’s not as boring as some “playable” tech demos, check it out.
It is October already and there’s no time to waste. So, let’s dive into the latest browsers market share results and explore those changes.
Just a couple more months and Internet Explorer will break the 50% market share barrier, this time it lost 0.62 point, down from 51.59% to 50.97%.
We will be interviewing the Maxthon web browser team shortly and would like to hear some of the feedback from our readers.
So, post your (respectful) questions in the comments section below and the ones with most likes will be sent for the Maxthon folks to answer.
Update: Questions have been sent, thank you for participating!
