Microsoft yesterday showed the first look of the new Internet Explorer 10. Yes, IE10 first initial features were shown in the video at MIX’11 yesterday. IE9 was launched a month back but that does not mean Microsoft is now going to get quite on the browser war. The new techniques and features are going to be there in IE10 but the question right now which everyone is asking is, will IE10 run on Windows Vista?
Microsoft just released the Microsoft Internet Explorer 9 Release Candidate after quite a long time since the release of the beta version of MSIE9. There are some changes to the interface of MSIE9RC too beside some back end technical issues. Microsoft is getting a very tough time in browser industry because of their biggest competitor Mozilla Firefox and now to come extend Google Chrome.
Even after the launch of IE9 Beta by Microsoft, still the market trend of IE is falling greatly every month. Last year in September IE held the market with about 60% users, whereas this year it has dropped below 50%. IE8 was pretty good, but the new IE9 Beta is extremely better than the last one. Microsoft is trying to get back into the market with their new IE9.
Microsoft started offering other Internet Browsers than their own Internet Explorer in the current update for Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7 in Europe. This is quite amazing, that even after making MSIE 8.0, Microsoft is losing their market in the Internet Browsers industry. Mozilla Firefox and then Google Chrome took over the browser market and I can see the downfall graphs of Internet Explorer.
Microsoft have started a campaign for the poor and hungry people of United States of America , the campaign is named as Feed the Hungry.Well , users can see this advertise on the main page of MSN website.When user click on the advertise then an another window is opened with the name of “Browse for the better“.
Mozilla Firefox is one of the fastest growing Internet Browser for the PCs. After the monopoly of Microsoft Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox was the only one which successfully broke the monopoly and made its way into the users mind. So far Mozilla Firefox is considered to be as the best Internet Web Browser every. Mozilla Firefox team came up with 3 critical errors in their version 3.0.6 and immediately released the newer version of Mozilla Firefox 3.0.7.
Many people still wonder that which web browser was the first one. Many think that Netscape was the first browser, but they are wrong. The first web browser was called “Mosaic”. Mosaic was developed by two guys Marc Andreessen and Eric Bina at the National Center of Supercomputing Applications (also known as NCSA).
Google finally came out of the BETA version. Google said that they have met all the important security and other backdraws of the browser and have finally launched their browser. Google Chrome browser was released 100 days ago and within these 100 days 14 update patches were released for the browser. And now on 11th Dec. 2008 the 15th update is without the BETA tag.
Microsoft delayed the launch of their new web browser Internet Explorer 8.0 and said that in the first quarter of the next year they will first release its newer update version after the beta and beta 2 release which is generally called “release candidate”. Microsoft IE8 RC1 is expected to hit the market in the first three months of year 2009.
Google introduced Google Toolbar 5 for Mozilla Firefox browser, after making a change in the features for their IE toolbar.
