Microsoft To Acquire TikTok In the US?

The rumours are making rounds that Microsoft may acquire TikTok to keep the popular short video sharing...

Internet is on boom and online properties are hot favorite for users to play around. Consequently, ‘Browser” has become an important aspect for companies like Google, Microsoft, Firefox to have significant control over market share. With its steady rise and phenomenal user satisfaction ratio, Chrome has emerged as top gainer against Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari or Opera.

As per an online market analysis firm NetMarketShare,Google’s Chrome has almost doubled its browser market share from 5.61% in early 2010 to 9.98% in 2010. That means every 10th user on Internet is fascinated with Google’s browser baby. Though, Microsoft Internet explorer still remains as top leader in overall market share of browser, constant decline, despite of updated version release of IE 8.0 and IE 9.0 Beta, by users is showing signs of worry to Microsoft. Microsoft IE has lost 4.5% of market share diving from 61.58% to 57.08% in last year. Chrome seems to be rising at the expense of Microsoft IE.

Interestingly, Chrome 8.0 and Internet Explorer 8.0 are the most successful browsers from their own parent company. Compare to other versions Internet Explorer, IE 8.0 captures 33.02% share of overall browser alone. Similarly the major share for Google comes from Chrome 8.0 which controls 7.32% of market alone.

Surprisingly, Firefox has also witnessed the marginal decline in browser market share. Starting the year with 24.23% of overall market share, Firefox went down to 22.81% by end the 2010.

But the story was not the same for other browsers in Industry. Safari, Opera and few other players in browser market had remained intact, somehow, or recorded minute growth.

Despite of loosing grounds, Microsoft still can have some sign of relief as the decline was attracted by older version of IE and the upcoming IE 9.0 is showing some positive signs of growth. Currently in beta version, Internet Explorer 9.0 can turn the table conditionally, if Microsoft adopts some of the best features from Chrome, Firefox or probably Safari.
