Well, September had been a trend-shifter in most of the things in Technology during which most users looked-out of their “traditional approach” to technology, towards the next step in Future.
Last week, we reported that Google search re-gained it’s search market share, when it re-gained 80% of the market in U.S, highest since last year.
Thanks to great Windows 7 Reviews, it doesn’t even matter that Windows 7 hasn’t been officially released yet, the Betas, RCs has been solid convincing proofs for Vista users to leave their OS, according to market-share data collected by popular web metrics firm: Net Applications.
As per the stats, Vista‘s market-share dipped by 0.18 percent in September, which is the first time the OS has seen a down trend since it’s hype in January 2008. Windows 7, on the other hand, climbed 0.34 percent and now claims to be occupying 1.52 percent of the OS market. Not bad for an OS that hasn’t been released and yet that’s lying only on the P2P sites like piratebay. Steve Ballmer, CEO Microsoft, is already excited for Windows 7 launch of October 22nd.
On the other side, browsers also saw shifting trends. Internet Explorer (IE) lost 1.26 percent of it`s market share. This is not something new, every month it falls, but again, September’s numbers were better. Now, IE’s market share is lowest-ever at 65.7 percent. This again came as good news for Google: Chrome, whose market share jumped by 0.33 percent. Firefox also managed to grab a big slice of 0.77%.
It’s pretty much evident to to see a similar trend in coming months.
What do you think, is it just the beginning?
