Fresh statistics have been released into the wild by Net Applications for April 2013. Net Applications’ statistics are based on the activity of about 160 million visitors per month to Web sites using its services.
These are the latest figures on the performance of the behemoths of the Internet as far as web browsing is concerned.
- Internet Explorer: 55.81 – 55.83 = 0.02 percent
- Firefox: 20.30 – 20.21 = 0.09 percent
- Chrome: 16.35 – 16.45 = 0.10 percent
- Safari: 5.38 – 5.31 = 0.07 percent
- Opera: 1.73 – 1.74 = 0.01 percent
- Others: 0.42 – 0.48 = 0.06 percent
Last month things were pretty quiet in the browsers’ arena. Just about every one of the players held their ground with the exception of Chrome who lost 0.10 points and Safari who won 0.07. Firefox is keeping a steady trend upwards which is good news for me; being a devoted Firefox user.
Opera is frozen in deep ice. Nothing they do seems to work to get their engine in motion. For a moment I thought Google was going to gobble it up, but at the end of day nothing happened. One thing I can say about Opera—they are persistent people. No matter what, they keep struggling forward. I like that. As the saying goes, “persistence makes perfection”. I hope it works for them in the long haul.
See you next month, and in the meantime, have fun and live your life the best you can. Good Day.
