Sebastian Anthony posted on extremetech, that the death of firefox will happen soon, as it lost ground to IE, chrome and Safari. Between 2010 and today Firefox has lost a third of its market share, from a worldwide peak of around 30% down to 20%.
Chrome is breathlessly decimating Firefox’s userbase at a breakneck rate. It took Firefox more than four years to prise 20% of the market from Internet Explorer; Chrome did it in almost half that, and is fast approaching 30% in just over three years. Internet Explorer’s graph is a little harder to interpret, but it looks like it might have finally turned the corner and stopped hemorrhaging market share.
Firefox will survive, but it has to reposition itself to be seen as the "rebel" once again. After all, Mozilla Firefox it is the only browser that is not run by a commercially driven entity. The Mozilla Foundation is "a non-profit organization that promotes openness, innovation and participation on the Internet.". Users should value that fact.
Since the Mozilla Foundation got 300 Million US$ per year from Google to implement Google's search engine as the default one, two new releases of the Firefox Browser have been presented: Firefox 10 (stable) and Firefox 11 Aurora (Version 11). The mobile Android version of the Android implementation gets a new, native UI. That makes the browser faster and it needs less memory besides other improvements and fixes. Firefox Aurora and Beta can be downloaded from Future of Firefox.
Steve Jobs died and I heard it via the Google Front page. To my mind, this is the first time somebody made it to the google search page (alexa rank #1), post-mortem. I am wondering how long the message will stay there - I am assuming until the end of the week at a maximum. Interestingly, the tribute page on the Apple website is showing the same picture of Steve Jobs as the cover of the the soon to be released Steve Jobs Biography by Walter Isaacson. Steve seems to have carefully planned his demise - which somehow feels scary. Looking at all his achievements and the achievements of Apple, maybe his health condition was the driving force behind.
"Steve Jobs, 1955-2011" read the simple button which appeared within minutes on Google, linking to the front page of Apple's website which itself had a picture of Jobs anouncing his death at the age of 56.
