Browser wars: Firefox overtakes Internet Explorer in Europe

Firefox has overtaken Microsoft's Internet Explorer as Europe's browser of choice for the first time, according to new data. Figures from web analytics firm Statcounter, show that in December, Firefox took 38.1 per cent of the European market, while Internet Explorer's share slipped to 37.5 per cent.

Google's Chrome saw its share rising to 14.6 per cent from just 5.1 per cent a year earlier. It’s the first time Internet Explorer has been “dethroned from the number-one spot in a major territory,” Aodhan Cullen, StatCounter’s chief executive officer, said in a statement. “This appears to be happening because Google’s Chrome is stealing share from Internet Explorer.” Firefox is maintaining its existing share, he said.

Online behavioural advertising blocked – new threats from IE9

Microsoft has added a function to its Internet Explorer 9 web browser enabling users to designate sites which will be blocked from tracking their online behaviour. The new feature will allow users of Internet Explorer 9 to create and subscribe to lists of sites with which they don't want to share information, including ads that target people based on their surfing behavior.

The Wall Street Journal reported that this is the resurrection of a feature that Microsoft considered for an earlier version of Internet Explorer but dropped due to advertiser opposition. Microsoft execs couched it as part of their ongoing talks with regulators in Washington and Europe on the issue of web privacy.

Browser wars: Google’s Chrome takes bigger bite of market share

Google's browser Chrome is taking an increasing share of global Web usage, while Microsoft’s market leader Internet Explorer is in decline, according to new figures. Chrome usage rose from 8.5 percent of worldwide Web usage in October to 9.3 percent in November, according to statistics from Net Applications, whose analytics software monitors Web traffic extensively.

Chrome claimed most of that share from Microsoft's Internet Explorer, which dropped in overall usage from 59.2 percent to 58.3 percent. Chrome's gains means Google has an easier time pursuing its agenda--adding new features for Web programmers, modifying Net communication protocols to make them faster, and generally trying to make the Internet a place where people spend more of their lives.

Figures suggest that over half the world's internet users have IE. Testing for the update is already underway in the UK, Belgium and France.
