You are right. I shouldn't have made a country-specific comment but the frustration of encountering blockages in the internet gets to a person sometimes.

Google Chrome 5 Beta Released
 
Chrome 5: Faster and better

Quote:

The first thing you'll notice with Google's new beta of its Chrome Web browser is that it's faster -- much faster -- than the last version.

The new Chrome has more than just speed and security going for it though. It also includes several new features. The one I like the most is expanding Chrome's bookmark sync, from just letting you keep your bookmarks in sync with multiple computers to letting you sync browser preferences such as themes, homepage and startup settings, and Web content settings across PCs. If you're like me and you use several computers this is one handy feature.

It also includes several HTML5 features such as Geolocation APIs (application programming interfaces), App Cache -- HTML5's answer to the old Google Gears for offline Web applications -- and file drag-and-drop capabilities.

IE 9 is going to be awesome. It has a technology no other browser has. It will render a website by using the graphic card which is a lot faster than the cpu.

Google says you're wrong.

News Item: IE has a bigger market share than all competitors combined.
Forum headline: IE Losing Browser Battle.

IE will always dominate because it is the bundled Windows browser. Firefox got a foot in the door because MS let IE development stagnate for several years (for lack of competition).

It sure is sweet today having Firefox, Chrome, and Opera to choose from. We've never had so much browser goodness before.

I think Doobie is right when he says that IE will always dominate. This
is true with the average users but not so with people like us that are
willing to try different options or that are interested in security. I am
always advising people on why they should not use IE and not many
listen or follow the advise.

Let's see how many mobile devices use IE9.

And which OS does the iPad use? Since IE (any version) is restricted to devices running Windows, I doubt the iPad will accommodate IE.

And then there are the other tablets. Many of them seem to intend using Android. Again, being light-weight in terms of resources, Wine may not be an option and so IE won't be here either.

A further "enabler" was the decision, a few months ago, in the EU to give purchasers a choice of browser.

iPad is from Apple. So, it will use Safari as the browser... its obvious.

iPad runs a modified version of the iPhone OS. Most apps which are designed for the iPhone should be able to run on iPad.
