Google The browser wars may just become a little bit more interesting. Apart from Internet Explorer, Firefox, Opera, and Safari, another player is ready to join the field in what will most probably be released as a beta - you know, company policy - for the upcoming 23 years: Chrome. It's a webkit-based browser from Google. Update: It's out there, folks.

Member since:

So tell me again why IE will lose more than firefox?

Firefox users normally have a set up where they have the addons they need integrated and are relatively loath to change their web browser. Most, like myself, will try it but will only change if there are real advantages to Chrome in terms of functionality, reliability and speed.

On the other hand most people use Google. Google are the experts in targeted web advertising. Thus they will be able to market their Browser to people who have never thought of switching to Firefox and who have never even heard of it. Google can market it as giving the best possible Google experience and many default IE users who are regular Google users may switch on this basis
