IE 9 till now has proven out to be a good browser, but you cannot consider it to be better than its competitor like Mozilla and Chrome. Firefox holds the users who like the huge quantity of add-ons and extensions, so its users are growing but slowly. Unlike Internet Explorer which does not have Add-on and extensions, so it’s not easy for Microsoft to attract users from its competitors.
Firefox also continue to stand in the same position as that of Internet Explorer, though it’s not facing the losses as that Microsoft is facing, but still it does not show any significant growth in the browser market. In spite of the releasing of Firefox 4 the market share of Mozilla is not increasing, as it used to increase before the Google’s chrome entry. Mozilla was overtaking IE’s users before the Google’s Chrome. Though, Firefox 4 is a strong browser, which has scored 100% in the Acid3 test.
Mozilla is focusing to reverse the trend, both Microsoft and Mozilla needs something to reverse the trend of Google’s chrome, Though Mozilla is all set to launch it new browser Firefox 5 in late June, with such a little gap between Firefox 4 and Firefox 5, Mozilla is attempting this type of release policy for the first time, let’s see what Mozilla is trying to do.
Google’s browser Chrome has continued to reach the heights of popularity consistently, it is todays only web browser that is showing a continuous rise in its graph with every passing month. It now also has a wide range of extensions, which are regularly updated and released. It has become a strong competitor in the browser market in a very short time.
