Chrome en passe de détrôner Firefox de sa deuxième place

D’après des chiffres parus récemment, celui-ci pourrait bientôt prendre la deuxième place du podium des browsers les plus utilisés, actuellement occupée par Firefox. A ce jour, Internet Explorer reste (de loin…) le navigateur le plus utilisé, et Firefox se dispute de très près, depuis quelque temps déjà, la deuxième place avec Chrome. Cependant, au vu de statistiques publiées récemment, il semblerait que le navigateur de Google dépasse bientôt celui de la Mozilla Corporation. Les données, fournies par Net Applications et StatCounter — deux sociétés spécialisées dans la mesure d’audience sur Internet — annoncent que le browser de Google s’est dangereusement rapproché de Firefox au cours du mois de septembre. Pour le mois de septembre, l’accès à Internet depuis les smartphones et tablettes représente 6% du traffic, (93,7% de ce dernier reposant en effet sur les PC).

+1’s: the right recommendations right when you want them—in your search results

But relevance is about relationships as well as words on webpages. That’s why we recently started to include more information from people you know—stuff they’ve shared on Twitter, Flickr and other sites—in Google search results. Today we’re taking that a step further, enabling you to share recommendations with the world right in Google’s search results. It’s called +1—the digital shorthand for “this is pretty cool.”

To recommend something, all you have to do is click +1 on a webpage or ad you find useful. The +1 button will appear next to each search result After pressing the +1 button, you have the option to undo the action immediately Say, for example, you’re planning a winter trip to Tahoe, Calif. So how do we know which +1’s to show you? To get started +1’ing the stuff you like, you’ll need to create a Google profile—or if you already have one, upgrade it.

The home of the future is unlikely to be the curvy white pod of science fiction.

What Will a Typical 2050s Home be Like?

On the outside, most houses in the UK will still look 19th century – partly because the public are profoundly conservative in their architectural tastes, but largely because the vast majority of houses that will be standing by 2050 have already been built. It’s on the inside that they will be different – with everything from floor to ceiling retrofitted to inject some intelligence, efficiency and adaptability into the old shell. Intelligence will come from an array of sensors which automatically switch lights and taps on and off, order your groceries and even monitor your health. A central control system will manage the home for maximum efficiency, and show when the fridge needs defrosting, or if the micro-generator isn’t running at full efficiency.

Houses will be interactive and fully wireless, allowing us to access data from any point. There are trends pushing us towards these outcomes.
