Boring percentage game time

Blah, blah, blah, yada, yada, yada, woof, woof, woof. The takeaway is, Windows users are beginning to make the jump from XP and Vista to Windows 7,

Firefox continues to be the browser that’s growing while Internet Explorer is the browser of people too stupid or afraid to try anything else and Opera is gonna die a slow painful death, which is really very sad.

Opera was the trailblazer for the smart speedy browser that revolutionized browsing. It was the last browser that charged money, until it woke up too late, realized it was never gonna get a significant part of desktop, went free and centered its business aggressively for the mobile market, and does well there. Still. It’s gonna’ die. Don’t worry, though, you probably won’t go alone,

as soon as Google perfects Chrome and cuts Firefox’s revenue stream off .
