Market Insights from the Market Strategy Team

Desktop / Platform

  • Internet Explorer 11 delivered the most battery life and Chrome delivered the least on Windows 8.1 laptops and tablets used for testing at 7 Tutorials [2], similar to previous results on IE10 [3] and IE9. [4]
  • Web developers can exploit bugs in Google’s Chrome browser to listen through a computer’s microphone — even if the browser window is not open. [5] The source code for this exploit is available at GitHub [6]
  • As the number of users on the Internet expands across the world, for example in India at 243 million users, [7] and the connectivity expands [8], ICANN will expand the number of generic top-level domains from 22 to a few hundreds, starting February.
