Firefox “The MOST used browser in Europe”

firefox_18aThere are enormous numbers of complaints over Internet Explorer for not adhering internet standards. IE is a product of Microsoft and Microsoft always had its own way of working with technology. They don’t care about the standards set by the industry but they’ll set their own standards, then only they could control the market.

Microsoft IE came to market to compete with Netscape Navigator and they are pretty successful as Navigator production line was closed down last year. In the line of victory Microsoft has earned good number of enemies such as Linux, Firefox, Apple etc.

Consecutively several years, IE continues to be the market leading browser software in the cyber world. Slowly but steadily Firefox started to eat the market share of IE. Later Google’s chrome also joined the battle and caused severe damage to IE.

According to Stat Counter web, for the first time in the history of world, Firefox has beaten IE in Europe. Today Europe may be tomorrow it can be Asia or North America. It’s been almost 2 years since I forgot IE. I love Firefox and will stick with it. What I love most in Firefox is the wide range of Add-ons they offer.

Is this the beginning of an end?? (Yeah… for Microsoft)

Google new firefox tool bar gives you an opportunity to enjoy such feature with firefox. If you no longer need to keep the thumbs with your browser, tool bar offers a way to remove it as well.

This feature is going to be a handy advantage for firefox users. I’ve already enabled it in my browser.

PS: You can also bring Opera’s Speed Dial to firefox using an addon
