Firefox Still Gaining On IE

Filed under
Moz/FF

Firefox, the popular alternative to Microsoft's Internet Explorer browser is picking up steam worldwide, gaining one percent in market share in the past six months.

And judging by the numbers, courtesy of OneStat, Mozilla swiped that market share directly from Microsoft, which was down about one percent worldwide. The Beast of Redmond still controls just under 85 percent of the worldwide browser market, though.

Firefox gleaned 12.7 percent of that market in June, up from 11.7 percent in January.

Is Mozilla Making the Same Mistakes as Microsoft?

There was a time when I had high hopes for Firefox. The idea of having a small, lightweight, swift, secure, low memory/CPU-footprint browser appealed to me a lot. I’ve always been a default Internet Explorer user but I can’t say that I’ve ever really been thrilled by it (or even mildly jazzed) and if something better, faster, more secure and less hassle came along, I’d make the leap. For a long while I thought that it would be Firefox that I’d be making the leap to, but I’m now doubtful that Firefox will ever be more than a curiosity to me. I’ll experiment with it, but I don’t really get to the point where I really use it any more.

Radeon RX 580: AMDGPU-PRO vs. DRM-Next + Mesa 17.2-dev

Last week I posted initial Radeon RX 580 Linux benchmarks and even AMDGPU overclocking results. That initial testing of this "Polaris Evolved" hardware was done with the fully-open Radeon driver stack that most Linux enthusiasts/gamers use these days. The AMDGPU-PRO driver wasn't tested for those initial articles as it seems to have a diminishing user-base and largely focused for workstation users. But for those wondering how AMDGPU-PRO runs with the Radeon RX 580, here are some comparison results to DRM-Next code for Linux 4.12 and Mesa 17.2-dev. Read more
