In the News NetApplications has released its latest browser market share figures, and these figures show that Chrome has overtaken Safari as the number three browser worldwide, behind Internet Explorer and Firefox. IE, by the way, continues to lose popularity rather fast.

Thats their only product which keeps them alive not their crap browser for pcs and hopefully with Google Android phones they gonna get wiped down.

I remember how did Opera force their users at the beginning to watch ungly banners in 25% of the screen if you didn't buy the full product. How can a company justify the income by forcing people to watch ads...

Yeah, right? I mean, it's horrible to force people to see ads to use your product for free! What were they thinking back then, I'm pretty sure it's against something on the Geneva Convention.

Come on, buddy. It's just ads. If you can't stand to see them, rip your eyes off. It's not like TV didn't work like that for ages.

Agreed, back then that is the only business model that they could of had as it was before making money from searches was big business.

People think the internet is bas for advertising now, back then it was much worse with the amount of popups etc.
