The Death Of Firefox

Recommended Posts

Here is an interesting article about the status of the browser wars and Firefox's failing numbers. But it is not as gloomy as it sounds if you read it through.


Us old timers despised IE because it tried to force you to use it and it really was not that good... M$ liked to ignore standards and try to force their own on everyone, so we went with Netscape. But eventually Netscape   got bloated and shut down, they broke their unified software up and created the Mozilla project (Mozilla was originally the base structure of Netscape) to specialize them and we ended up with a quick little thing called... er... something that then became Firefox. That forced IE to get better and eventually M$ joined the standards movement... and Firefox began bloating and slowing down just like Netscape before it. I still use firefox at work but privately I made the Chrome switch early on for the speed as many of us here did.


So here is the latest update on the browser wars... good read.

It doesn’t look good for Firefox: Almost every month for the last three years, Firefox has lost ground to Internet Explorer, Chrome, and Safari. For most of 2009 the trend was fairly straight as it fended off Chrome and nibbled away at IE, but between 2010 and today Firefox has lost a third of its market share, from a worldwide peak of around 30% down to 20%.
