eWeek: Firefox and other browsers will be lost

Firefox browser is losing competitiveness. In the past the face of seemingly unable to beat the competitors, Mozilla has developed a superior performance of the Internet browser. With the growing popularity of Firefox, its users set up a good reputation all contribute to the company than any ad to open up the browser market. Currently, Firefox browser, IE browser, came in after the world's second largest popular browser. Firefox is generally considered superior to Microsoft's IE.

But in the past few months, Mozilla's Firefox browser has lost about 2% of market share. The beginning of this year, Google's Chrome browser popularity. Although Mozilla's supporters still believe that this is only a short-term problem, Firefox browser will be recouped. But the situation is likely to be worse. In fact, Firefox browser, likely to become the losers in the browser market. The following ten reasons:

1. Market share is declining

Firefox's market share is declining, that there is no controversy. A few months ago, the market research company said NetMarketShare, the browser also holds 24% market share, but according to the company's latest survey in July, Firefox accounted for only 22% of the market. At the same time, IE has more than 60% market share, Chrome browser, though still far behind these two browsers, but it gradually took possession of more than 7% market share, exceeding the set earlier this year 5% of the market. It appears that the user is turning the other from the Firefox browser, and in any assessment of the browser market, you have to remember this.

2.IE browser recovery

Speaking of growth, it is worth mentioning that, IE browser market comeback is indeed surprising. Not long ago, it was believed that Microsoft will compete in the browser market in anything, because IE is still continuing to users create all kinds of trouble. But later, Microsoft abandoned support for IE6, but intends to provide users with Firefox and Chrome as a browser as more valuable. In the short term, Microsoft is to regain market share, thanks to the users of IE8. It is true that there are benefits to not much, but they stressed that the use of ordinary consumers are willing to IE browser, not Firefox or other browsers. This is very detrimental to the Mozilla.

3. Google's Chrome browser, developing good

In the browser market, Google can be considered a junior, but it has gradually felt the impact of this company. As mentioned earlier, Chrome browser market share is growing rapidly. In accordance with the current momentum, Chrome to continue to grow down. Unfortunately for on Mozilla, if Chrome's market share growth in the more users will use Firefox, less. In most cases, people use Firefox, because compared with IE it is a better choice. If they found the market there is still a better browser, which Mozilla will be a disastrous.

4. Mobile market is essential

For most browsers manufacturers, mobile market is fast becoming a key area of competition. Apple launched its iPhone, the Safari mobile browser, Google Android device will provide mobile Chrome browser. Recently, Opera will be the mobile version of the browser into the market. However, Firefox mobile browser, there still exist many deficiencies. Taking into account more and more users will use the mobile browser, Mozilla should be as soon as possible for the user to provide the corresponding mobile browser, and not to watch their market share continue to erode. Halo effect (Halo effect) in the browser market is very strong. Mozilla should remember this.

5. Value Game

Select the browser, the user will choose the most valuable software. For a long time, Mozilla's browser comes as the company provided first. Compared with the IE browser, its faster, more secure, and its extensibility makes Firefox even more useful. Available today, the situation has changed. Chrome faster, other browsers also have the scalability, Firefox with the market in the security of other non-IE browsers quite. Consumers have begun to realize this. This will continue to hamper the development of Mozilla.

6. Mozilla's reputation is not enough

In the high-tech industry, who determine the success fame, who failed. In the browser market, it has helped the development of Microsoft's IE browser, it may also help Google's Chrome browser to become the number one competitor in this area. Mozilla can run, but it is a bad news. And as the popularity of Firefox, Mozilla is not a household name. For novice users, the general Web, using software from a trusted brand (such as Microsoft or Google) is very important. Looking ahead, we can see more and more users will choose Chrome, the reason is simply: it can replace IE, and from a company they know and trust.

7. Will become increasingly fierce competition

The face of the world's most powerful high-tech companies, Mozilla is also able to develop past. But this one is also the face of the world's most powerful companies, to increase again, really difficult. Google on their browser, confident that if the Chrome beat IE, Google will be able to increase their number of searches, and maximize advertising revenue. In realizing this, Google might be more willing to invest more of its Chrome browser resources. In order to provide up to become a more powerful Google, Microsoft may also take the same approach. The funds have been relatively small Mozilla, Mozilla in this regard need to catch up with Microsoft. But for now, it does not seem to be raised.

8. Business users can not be ignored

Mozilla may not put too much focus on business users above, but perhaps should. Why IE is so popular today, mainly in the business world can be directly attributed to its success. Whether big or small company, now had to rely on IE to do the job. In fact, some Web-based enterprise solutions apply only to Microsoft's browser. If Firefox to succeed, and to resist the challenge from Google, it needs to make more contributions to the enterprise. Otherwise, the situation will only get worse.

9. Firefox has fallen behind

Mozilla found itself at an unfamiliar position. The company was once far ahead of the competition, because the expansion of their browser and the page loading time is short. However, everything changed, because the industry in other browsers also completed the improvements. Now, contrary to Mozilla's time to catch up with rivals. Whether able to catch up, and now is just speculation. Introduced in Mozilla Firefox, it is better than a lot of Microsoft's browser. Today, it needs to find a better way than other software. According to some of the characteristics Firefox4 of view, the company may be experiencing a difficult period. In fact, most reports have claimed, Firefox4 will not keep up with Chrome's browsing speed. If Mozilla To regain lost market share, it is indeed not good news.

10.Opera brought heavy losses to the Mozilla

Opera browser market may only have a small part, but you can say it and Microsoft, as Google has brought heavy losses to Mozilla. The reason is simple: Opera attracts those involved in Microsoft and Google do not want to dispute the advanced users. Opera in the mobile market as a force to be reckoned with, more users choose Opera as their mobile browser, which makes the Opera entirely possible that in the desktop market share. Mozilla must not underestimate the Opera, if only to cast a shadow on the future of Firefox.
