Who's Winning the Browser Wars

We all have our favourite browsers for one reason or another and if you're a geek like me you might even have 3 browsers or more installed.  With all the new browsers being launched we are being bombarded with statistics about which one is faster and which one has the coolest new features.  If you were to rank the browser versions in terms of worldwide popularity how would you rank them - go ahead take a minute to write down your top 3 I'll wait.    The people over at StatCounter provide global statistics on the market share of various browsers and versions (not to mention loads of other stats as well).  What's nice is that you can slice and dice the information in a variety of ways by month, week, country, etc.  I took a look at the browser version stats from March 1st through today (April 2nd) on a worldwide.  Are you surprised by the results below?    Source: S...

John Funnel on Ulitzer Earlier this year one of my staff attended a SYS-CON event and returned to the office a different person. Revitalised and motivated. I asked her what happened at the event to warrant such a transformation? What was her secret? Was it the New York Shopping experience? A business Romance or was it Devine intervention? She simply advised me to ‘check out Ulitzer. – Everyone who is anyone is on it’. She was not the first to introduce me to the innovation. Many of my peers had gone through such noticeable changes, It was like a weight had been lifted from their shoulders, that they now had a true portal to vent out their innermost thoughts.
