GNU/Linux is Bigger Than Mozilla Firefox

Penguins on land

THE new month has begun (no satires anymore) and it's a decent start for GNU/Linux.

As we noted here before, several times in fact, we've reached the point where there are likely more GNU/Linux users worldwide than there are Firefox users. Chrome continues to grow and the Steam survey for March says GNU/Linux is up. Microsoft gradually (and steadily) loses share and what the company does not want you to see is that Vista 11 is failing really badly.

"There was much noise last year about Firefox," an associate recalls, "because when it dips below 2% market share, the federal guidelines for Web site development will say that it can be ignored. That leaves only Chrome/Chromium and then Google controls pretty much the whole web at that point. Even Microsoft's Edge is just a reskinned Chromium, not that Edge is a good thing in any context ever."

"Brave is OK but Baker and the others ensured that Brave must be based on Chromium and not Firefox. They went out of their way to do that so that they could shoehorn DRM in to both the browser and the related Web spec."

Now, about operating systems, watch Apple compared to GNU/Linux below.
