And there´s nothing wrong with that, really. Take, for instance, their nearly air-tight production system. Everything from concept to design to software is done in house because they believe they can do it best. Then, when it comes time to...

Enid Burns for RedOrbit.com Competition between Google's Chrome browser and Microsoft's Internet Explorer is red hot. Last week the search giant's browser beat out the software giant's, and this week the internet is looking at month-long tallies to see just how swiftly Chrome is stepping into the lead for market share on browsers.

Michael Harper for RedOrbit.com Yesterday, it seemed that Google´s Chrome web browser had narrowly edged out Microsoft´s Internet Explorer. But that was yesterday, and today is a new day with new statistics and new debates to be had. Microsoft, it turns out, thinks the data used to come up with this statistic is flawed, and prefers to use another traffic measurement site which, conveniently enough, rates IE considerably higher than Chrome. The source of yesterday´s...

Enid Burns for RedOrbit The Google Chrome user base continues to grow, and according to data collected by StatCounter, it now exceeds the user base of Internet Explorer by a few percent. Over the past year Google's open source browser has made a steady climb from about 20 percent of the market to somewhere around 33 percent. Meanwhile, Chrome users passed Firefox toward the end of last year, and Explorer just last week. "This has been a two browser market going back to Netscape," said...

Remember the 90s, when rockstars wore flannel, smartphones were all but non-existent and Windows 95 was the best operating system out there? Do you also remember when Microsoft had run into some antitrust problems because Windows users didn´t have a choice of which web browser to use? It seems history could repeat itself as Mozilla is claiming Microsoft´s new operating system Windows RT (or runtime, previously known as Windows on ARM) has some technical restrictions, keeping their...
