Most used web browsers: Edge overtakes Safari and takes 2nd place

According to the latest report published by StatCounter, Microsoft Edge overtook Safari in April 2022, becoming the 2nd most popular desktop web browser in the world. If Google Chrome remains firmly in 1st place with 66.64% market share, Microsoft Edge now obtains 10.07%, just ahead of Safari which is used on 9.61% of desktop computers. The gap between the two represents 0.46% market share. Why did Edge take advantage over Safari? This trend was initiated as early as February, when Safari began to lose ground against its main competitor. If Apple’s web browser still retained its place as the dolphin, its popularity has waned in favor of the one installed by default on Windows 11, the latest operating system launched last October by Microsoft. For its part, Safari has had to deal with complaints from its own community. In question: technical bugs, a user experience that was not there and…    read more

March 30, 2022 |

In 1972, Ray Tomlinson sent the very first e-mail on the Arpanet network, the ancestor of the Internet. This programmer laid the first stone of the digital revolution. More than thirty years after its infancy, a Google engineer, Paul Buccheit, created Gmail. The engineers, programmers and technicians who worked on the Arpanet project communicated with each other by leaving fixed messages on their computers. These were kind of memos, simply meant to communicate information to the next user. Ray Tomlinson was working on a project (CPYNET) that aimed to copy data to computers connected to the nascent network. He had the brilliant idea of integrating the concept of digital messaging in the network, through two programs intended for sending and receiving electronic mail (SNDMSG and READMAIL). The first e-mail message sent contained only a single string of characters: “QWERTYUIOP”. Ray Tomlinson is also the originator of the use of the…    read more
