Web browsers developers are trying to make files download process as good as possible. When Internet Explorer was launched, files download process was not so user friendly, lots of corrupted files and unstable download speed (actually, IE team haven’t changed anything yet). More and more people downloaded additional programs for faster and better files download experience. Since then, other web browsers developers learned from Internet Explorer mistakes and started to add additional features into web browsers integrated download managers. One of the most important features was an ability to resume downloads. Continue Reading

Is it? Not really. However, some time ago AOL announced that they will stop Netscape Navigator support after February 1’st… Well, things changed a bit, they’ve decided to “extend” its support for one more month (March 1’st).
As it says in their blog post:
Mozilla, Flock and AOL are working together to provide tools to ease the migration of existing Netscape browser users to our recommended Flock and Firefox alternatives. Both Flock and Firefox are built on the same Mozilla Firefox codebase.
It’s time for the December, 2007 web browsers market share report. See November stats here.
As you will see in this graph, there are some noticeable changes for the Opera web browsers. Not sure why, but both of them (Opera and Opera Mini) got slightly different values than they should. It’s the second month, so not sure if it’s a bug. However, we have keep going and post what we know.

Now this is something interesting. Have you ever heard about SpaceTime? No? You should check their web page then and watch the video. Firstly I thought that it’s just yet another useless “feature”, however, after watching SpaceTime demo video, I’ve changed my mind. It is not as useless as I thought. Check this screenshot for example: Continue Reading
Seems everyone is talking about that right now. You got it right. According to the article (posted in Netscape blog), after February 1’st, AOL won’t be developing any further Netscape Navigator releases. The browser will be left on its own fate. Eh… Remember old times?
Netscape Navigator Market Share
It was the world’s most popular web browser and now its over. Internet Explorer will be next? I bet it will, I bet it will. If Microsoft will continue to use same “logic” while developing IE, someday you might see similar topic like this, just about Internet Explorer.
As for now, most of the current Netscape Navigator users will probably switch to Firefox and increase its market share.
That’s it. Check Netscape Navigator at Wikipedia if you want to remember old times.

Bit late, but we have to do that anyway, November web browsers market share (see October stats here).
As for November, Internet Explorer continues to lose its market share, this time it felt from 78.36% to 77.35% (1.01% decrease). Well… Still a leader.
Not a big surprise, Firefox hits 15% and even reaches a total of 16.01%, that’s a nice gain, from 14.97% to 16.01% (1.04% increase).
Safari lost some market share on October; however, they’ve got a nice increase this month, from 5.09% to 5.14% (0.05% increase).
According to HitsLinks, Opera increased its market share as well. This time by 0.07%, and moved from 0.58% to 0.65%. However, they had almost 1% last month. Something is wrong with their data I guess. Oh well…
Bad days for Netscape, it continues to lose its market share, this time Netscape market share felt from 0.66% to 0.60% (0.06% decrease).
No idea why, but HitsLink shows wrong data at this moment, says 0.03% market share for Opera Mini, while it should be 0.66% or so…
Here’s a graph of current browsers market share. Thanks to HitsLink.
