Many of you must have seen advertisements of Chrome in print (and few hoardings too). Is it paying off? The latest survey does show Chrome gaining ground on the great Indian browser war.
Received an email from Google Apps team today,
Starting on October 14, 2010, we will phase out the older version of Gmail, and the “Older version” link in the Gmail interface will disappear from the footer section of the page.
Which browser do you use? It depends on whom you ask. Most home users in India who are non-techies would be using Internet Explorer.
Over 50% of the browser traffic for most portals in India is from Internet Explorer, which is fine. The sad news is approx 40% of IE users are still with version 6.0. Nobody pays attention to the disadvantages of using IE 6 until God warns you.
While we hear a lot of noise about Microsoft Internet Explorer being evil, it still rules the browser market. Its share might be reducing but it still holds a comfortable majority.
Google’s browser Chrome was released when India was celebrating Ganesha festival in 2008. All functions in India start with first taking blessings from Lord Ganesha.
