And here we get yet another shocker for you guys. Well this time it is from Mozilla.

There were days where browser developers used to take years to develop and release new version. All this got changed when Google said “Use a brand new Chrome for every 6 weeks from now!”

Google has kept its promise and releasing new version of Chrome browser once in every 6 weeks. Recently Google released Chrome 9 with some great features.

Firefox 2011 Roadmap Image Mozilla Plans To Ship Firefox 4.0, 5.0, 6.0 & 7.0 By End Of 2011!

Mozilla has not only set priorities for Firefox browser but also has plans for something more. Mozilla wants to have a web platform with Identity, Social and Apps!

Well the product priorities for 2011 goes like this,

  1. Ship our new technology to users in smaller bundles, more frequently
    1. Four technology shipment vehicles in 2011, including Firefox 4
    2. Achieve a regular cadence for shipping
  2. Develop a product that is responsive from “click to render”
    1. No more than 50ms delay between user action and application reaction
    2. Provide optimizations to hide network latency
    3. Obtain metrics from users in addition to our test infrastructure
  3. Expand the Open Web Platform to include Apps, Social and Identity
    1. Design and implement open systems for Identity and social interactions
    2. Design and implement Web Application Framework
    3. Implement missing pieces of CSS/HTML required for compelling Web Applications
  4. Never lose the user’s data or state
    1. Continue to improve stability
    2. Mitigate the cost of application failure
    3. Interact with cloud-based storage to allow users to “take it with them”
  5. Shine the primary UI until it gleams
    1. Determine and optimize top 5-10 user interaction flows (ie: search for restaurant)
    2. Improve tools for customization/restoration of old functionality so we can remove it from primary UI
    3. Improve user interface polish so that Firefox feels modern, graceful and elegant
  6. Support modern operating systems and platforms
    1. Windows 64-bit
    2. OSX 10.7
    3. Android 3.0
    4. ARM CPUs
  7. Plan for a future where Desktop, Mobile and Web Apps run on a common platform
    1. Need to design and architect towards this eventual outcome
    2. Implementation of this is not a priority

Huh! Mozilla has gone a great makeover to come up with this new plans.

Firefox 5 to get Account Manager, Simple Sharing UI, UI Animation, support to 64Bit Windows. Firefox 6.0 will deliver JavaScript optimizations, Web Applications and FasterCache. And Firefox 7.0 is yet to take form, but undoubtedly the project is still contouring.

Well Mozilla is going to push hard towards its plans. If it going to working like Firefox development in 2010, Mozilla will surely hit again and will loose more users to its competitors Chrome, IE and Opera!

Do you think Mozilla will work as planned here? Will they comeback to Browsers war again? Share your thoughts with us icon wink Mozilla Plans To Ship Firefox 4.0, 5.0, 6.0 & 7.0 By End Of 2011!

Browsers, Softwares, Operating Systems, search engines…. Everyday something new is happening around the world of computers. Someone goes up..Someone suffers..Someone even gets some shock!

October statistics of browsers and operating systems are out and as usual some shock is there for you all. Tech18 team has kept an eye on all the latest buzz about browsers and many a times you guys found Google Chrome as our hot topic.

Well there is a reason why we were updating more about same topic. Here we divided October Browser and Operating system statistics as 3 divisions,

#1. Windows XP market share dips below 60%

As you all know Microsoft removed Windows XP from retail shops on October 22 and will continue to support it till 2014. Microsoft’s IE strategy may not be working at this time, but at least the company is seeing Windows XP removing itself.

Market Share of XP continues to lose about 1 point of market share every month. Net Applications listed the OS with a share of 59.07% in October and StatCounter listed XP with 53% market share. Windows 7 started catching market share with steady increment on market share.

#2. Internet Explorer 9 – The Beta King

Internet Explorer 9 Beta leads market share1 Windows XP Dips; IE9 Leads Beta; Chrome Continues!

Shocked right? Obviously. October browser statistics are out and IE blog happily updated about their shares. Official IE blog stated,

Today, with the release of Net Applications’ monthly browser share report, we’re pleased to see that in addition to 10 million downloads, 0.32% of customers worldwide and 1.46% of Windows 7 users are using Internet Explorer 9 as their daily browser.

We must say, Windows XP users are really started upgrading to Windows 7 and reduce in Windows XP share boosting Windows 7 and Internet Explorer 9 share. According to Net Applications, IE 9 Beta usage share on Windows 7 grew about 2.5 times, from 0.61% in September to 1.46% for the month of October.

Shocking news is Chrome 8 canary builds and Firefox 4 beta are well behind IE9! IE remains the top dog, with Net Applications 59.3% and StatCounters’ 49.21% in October.

#3. Chrome and its stable share

The only browser that is seeing some movement, in either direction, is Google Chrome, while Internet Explorer, Firefox and the other popular browsers are largely static relative to their market share.

Chrome is the fastest-changing browser since by default updates are downloaded and installed automatically when the browser or computer is restarted. Net Applications released an illustrative graph showing just how fleeting the life of a Chrome version is: six weeks in the case of Chrome 6.


These are some of the notable changes in October’s market share Net Applications and StatCounter. Well there were some good news and some shocking news. And many new things are expected in few days with Chrome 8, Chrome 9, Firefox 4 and Internet Explorer 9 are getting final touch and Chrome 9 already in build stage.

Watch out this space for many more updates!
