RWW Predictions: Browser Wars 2.0

This week we’re running a prediction challenge, on the topic of browsers. Google’s new browser, Chrome (our coverage), is sure to take market share from the existing players. So we want you to help us predict: which of the following browsers will lose the most share (in percentage terms) between August 2008 and December 2008? Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari, or a tie or other? You can cast your prediction by visiting RWW Predictions. It’ll be interesting to see what the ReadWriteWeb community thinks will happen!

Fast Facts

  • IE has lost 4-5% share so far in 2008 (NetApp)
  • Analysts are skeptical of Chrome’s adoption by enterprises, given its unproven “beta” status
