Chrome web browser continues growthApril 5, 2012
In March 2012, for users of the W3Schools website, Google’s Chrome web browser overtook Firefox as the most popular browser.
The W3Schools website monitors user statistics of people with an interest for web technologies, and acknowledges that its’ visitors may be more interested in using alternative browsers than the average user. However the statistics reveal clear universal trends.
Apart from Apple’s Safari which has held a relatively steady position this year, the only browser with a continually expanding market share has been Chrome.
The statistics for March display a continuation of a strong growth trend for the Chrome, with 37.3% share, leading Firefox (36.3%) and Internet Explorer (18.9%), and well ahead of Safari (4.4%) and an ultra-slim favourite amongst programmers, Opera (2.3%).
Chrome entered the market in September ’08, when Microsoft held almost half the market (49%). Since then, as Chrome has grown in popularity by one or two percent per month, Firefox has lost 7% market share, while IE has declined by a massive 41 percent!
From Our Clients
We have been a client of Digital Tsunami now for a number of years.
As an ASX listed company, we seek reliability with our suppliers. Digital Tsunami have proven they are reliable and trustworthy.
We host multiple websites and services through them, and use them for technical and creative work.
There has never been an issue, they are always on top of all technical details, and simply provide the best possible solution around a given budget, and get things right first time. Clearly they have excellent quality controls and that shows in their services.
We were very happy with the development process and the outcome. The objectives have all been achieved, in terms of usability and ease of use in updating the site. You definitely nailed both of these.
We have been fortunate to work with Andrew and his creative team from the inception of our business. The design and execution of our site has been fundamental in winning over clients and establishing our footprint in a very crowded space. We also place great value on their input into our business process.
The team at Digital Tsunami was incredibly responsive, delivering a solution well ahead of deadline. Their technical knowledge was exceptional, they were innovative, and they were very meticulous. What's more, they understood my business and technical requirements and translated them into a user-friendly, refined, professional site which is conceptually simple and cohesive.
You have demonstrated patience, perseverance, attention to detail and a rare ability to perceive what was needed even when we didn't. We are delighted with the site, it performs and looks great and our enquiry rate since it superseded our previous website has already increased by 20%.
