MONDAY July 7, 2008 (foodconsumer.org) -- Many food
consumers may not be aware of the war of web browsers.
A new study shows that Firefox users are more
likely to use the latest version than all users of all other browsers.
Latest versions often offer better security, meaning that
users of Firefox have better security.
Overall, about 60 percent of web surfers use the latest, up to date
versions of their web browsers.
Among the users of Firefox, up to 83 percent were found
using the latest version compared to 65 percent for Apple's Safari users, 53
percent for Opera users and only 48 percent for Microsoft Internet Explorer users.
However, Internet explorer browser attacks 1.1 billion users
or 78 percent of the total market shares, compared to 227 million for Firefox
or 16 percent, 48 million or 3.4 percent for Safari and 11 million or 0.8
percent for Opera.
The study was reportedly conducted by the Swiss Federal
Institute of Technology in collaboration with IBM and Google between Jan. 2007
and June 2008.
A latest release of Firefox was said to have boosted
Firefox's share in the browser market to 19 percent, media reports.
