Fast forward: What’s coming in future versions of Chrome?
Chrome continues to kick a** and take names.
Now with more than 70% of the world’s browser user share – a measure of browser activity calculated by analytics company Net Applications – Google’s Chrome has no equal in popularity. It’s run roughshod over rivals like Microsoft’s Edge, Mozilla’s Firefox and Apple’s Safari, which eke out livings as single-digit browsers, dangerously close to mere niche status.
So, it’s no surprise that when Chrome speaks, others tremble, if only in virtual boots. With each browser upgrade – something Computerworld tracks in the What’s in the latest Chrome update? series – and every time Google talks of future plans, opponents pay attention to hear what they may have to copy to stay competitive.
