After using Chrome for the last few days Safari is slow. The app itself, mind you, not the browser engine.

I ended up going back to Safari today because I miss the visual history and hated the very limited history Chrome shows from the Menu Bar. If not for that I would have likely kept it as my default browser despite the other niggling issues.

I hope Apple makes Safari just as fast. I also hope they allow for separate tabs as a process and give an option for tabs on top.


PS: At TenoBell. I just saw the announcement for RiM to go with WebKit. I didn't think they'd get one up so quickly, though I don't see a demo and there is no date expect for "2010". http://arstechnica.com/gadgets/news/...blackberry.ars

That's for MS's share in the US. Worldwide it's under 9%, possibly lower by more than a bit.

I don't know about that speed. In tests, Safari is still one of the fastest. Chrome on my machine doesn't seem to have much of a difference.

Your chart is a little misleading. It's an indication of the US smart phone user base, not market share of sales (directly).

As iPhone's sales market share has increased it's share of the user base will increase, but lag behind a little. I think iPhone's US market share in the US is around 30%.

However, the opposite is true for WinMo. I suspect it's US share to be under 15%. As Mel pointed out, WinMo's global share is less than 9%.

Windows Phone 7 (great name!) is a bold move from Microsoft, but you only have to look at that graph to see they had to do something! BTW the red line is going to fall even faster in the next 6 to 9 months.

Question. How many WinPho 7 licenses do you need to sell before you have a viable business?

How is it misleading? It says platform share right in the image and the hyperlink says in installed base in the article.
