Category: Web Browsers
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.
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.
