Internet Explorer losing out in Browser Wars



/ 5 years ago

This is probably no surprise that Internet Explorer’s share of the browser market is continuing to decrease. Chrome and Safari are clearly responsible for this decline, although Microsoft do still have a hugely dominant share.

Compared to last year, Internet Explorer is down around 4.7% and even Firefox has lost out by 1.7%. Chrome has gained a 1.8% share, strengthening its 3rd spot nicely. While Safari has seen a staggering 4.5% increase. This increase by Safari is clearly driven by the fact Apple decided to make it their browser for Mac’s and more importantly iOS devices, such as the iPhone and iPad, both of which are selling at a ridiculous rate.

Chrome is enjoying its success thanks to its reputation as being the fastest, most lightweight browser and offering good add ons, which mostly explains the drop for Firefox as the Mozilla browser was becoming rather resource-hungry until the latest release.

It seems that now, Microsoft have a very hard challenge to slow their rate of decline down, especially with more Android based phones as well as Chromebooks coming out onto the market.

    Personally, I've tried both Safari and Chrome and haven't seen much of a difference, even though Chrome is advertised as being faster.In my personal opinion some people hear the "faster than IE" thing and they just think it's fast although I don't think it is by much.I've read some tests and on some occassions IE was faster, other occassions it was chrome, and so on.IE is just the pre-installed, Chrome, Firefox and Opera is for people who know the PC better than simple users, and Safari are for "Apple lovers".Of course this is all an opinion, there is no fact 🙂(thought I would precise before eventual critics :))

    Haha, sorry to be an eventual critic. Chrome is so much quicker than IE, every page load is quicker, every time you open a new tab or new window its quicker. On top of that it is so much nicer to use.I think most of the staff here at eTeknix are Chrome fans and believe me I have tried them all very thoroughly!Si.

    Actually the eventual critics were in case somebody thought what I was saying is a fact, so if you're just saying that I might or am wrong, sure, I never said I was right in the first place lolAnyway, I just like IE more than Chrome, so in the end, for what my internet speed's worth, IE is as quick as Chrome.
