Press Release Summary: Janco\'s IT Productivity Center announced that it will released its 1st quarter 2008 Browser and Operating System Market Share White Paper on January 3, 2008.
Press Release Body: Park City, UT - Janco\'s IT Productivity Center announced that it will released its 1st quarter 2008 Browser and Operating System Market Share White Paper on January 3, 2008.
Some of the preliminary findings in that White Paper are: 1. Firefox and Mozilla have a combined market share of over 17% 2. Microsoft\'s IE market share has fallen to under 67% 3. Acceptance of Vista is slow and Vista only has just over 9% Market Share.
In addition, Netscape version 8 continues to be a the largest flop in the industry since IBM\'s OS/2. New in this white paper are recommendations on which browsers to use and not use. A summary of Janco\'s browser market share data will be found on the Janco web site () and the IT Productivity web site ().
The top four browser market share rankings are: 1st - Microsoft\'s IE - 66.96%; 2nd - Firefox - 15.87%; and 3rd - Netscape 8.97%. The CEO of Janco Associates, Inc., M. Victor Janulaitis said: \"Firefox took off quickly in early 2005 but slowed with the identification of a number of security issues. Since December 2006 it has lost momentum in it s quest to gain market share when Microsoft\'s IE 7 was released to the general public.\" He added, \"Netscape\'s release of version 8 is DOA (dead-on-arrival). The marketing of that product has been ineffective. Even though NS has almost 12% of the browser market share, in our opinion it is not clear that Netscape will be a player in the browser market next year at this time since most of their users are devoted to NS 4 - an obsolete product.\"
Janco\'s has collected consistent data on browser activity since September 1997. The data is collected from commercial sits with a focus on business to business activity. Janco has over 350,000 data points for each month of the fourth quarter of 2007 as it continues to expand it client base. Janco anticipates that it will issue an update to its market share data at the end of the second quarter of 2008.
The IT Productivity Center is the information portal for business executives who manage the Information Technology function. Mr. Janulaitis said, \"The ITPC portal provides many Information Technology management productivity tools to executives and IT professionals. The portal has templates and reports covering Sarbanes-Oxley to Information Technology Service Management (ITSM) and Disaster Recovery Planning.\"
