  • Update in the browser wars: If you ain’t Chrome, you ain’t jack

    Posted on August 3rd, 2018 at 07:10 woody Comment on the AskWoody Lounge

    Gregg Keizer has his usual monthly report in Computerworld, with some unusual findings:

    Chrome added nearly 4 percentage points to its user share in July (per Net Applications), ending at 64.7%. The last time a browser owned that large a chunk of the world’s browser market was in late 2009, when IE accounted for two-thirds of the total… Edge remains a flop. In July, just 11.5% of all Windows 10 users relied on Edge, a record low for the long-struggling browser.

    Remember that Windows 10 in S Mode only runs Edge. No other choice. And the new, fawned-over Surface Go starts with Win10 Home in S Mode.
