According to this map, FF has dramatically lost popularity. The map
shows that by 2014 our beloved browser is most used in the less
developed and poor countries only.
A browser such as Firefox is likely to see ups and downs from time to
time because its main user-base is hobbyists and enthusiasts who are
likely to move on to something different. This is expected because for
them it is a matter of passing time!!.
Is this map biased? Are there any figures from reliable sources?
Microsoft products are used in corporate environment and so its market
share will remain almost constant depending on how the economy is
doing. If there is a down turn in the economy and so businesses try to
stream line its structure and lay of staff then market share of Internet
Explorer and Windows will fluctuate accordingly.
Frankly, it is time to stop worrying about these things because Mozilla
products are on life support and it may not be around in 5 years time.
Me thinks so anyway!! Netscape was doing fantastically well but see
what happened to it. Funding dries up and some one new comes in to get
it started again under a different name. It happens all the time.
Don't rule out Microsoft because Microsoft is eyeing Open Source and it
has started funding some of the projects but these are to benefit its
own business. We might even get Microsoft Linux in the near future!!
Watch the space.
With over 500 million devices now running Windows 10, customer
satisfaction is higher than any previous version of windows.
