Suggested January 2024 Google’s Desktop Search Share Drops To Lowest Point In 6 Years

In the months following Google’s fallout with Firefox as the browser’s default search engine, the search giant’s share of the desktop search market has been on the decline. January was no different, as Google’s desktop search market share dropped below 75% for the first time since July 2008, according to StatCounter.

Yahoo, on the other hand, has been seeing steady gains since becoming Firefox’s default search provider. When taking into account queries across all devices, Yahoo has overtaken Bing as the second largest search engine in the US.

Taking a look at the numbers you’ll see that Yahoo has nearly tripled its share of the search market on Firefox over the past several months. Yahoo now accounts for over 28% of all searches performed on Firefox, compared to under 10% in November 2014.

While everything is sounding good for Yahoo so far, when you look at the big picture Google is still far ahead of its competitors. For example, Firefox is the least popular of the major desktop browsers, ranking below Chrome, IE, and Safari respectively. So while Yahoo’s search share is growing in some respects, it has a long way to go before even coming close to Google or Bing.

It’s also important to point out that Google’s drop in search market share is only evident on desktop. When you take mobile search into account, Google is still standing strong at 78% market share.

Despite Google still being well ahead of its competitors, it was in reaction mode a few weeks ago with a campaign designed to get Firefox users to switch their default browser back to Google.

These new numbers suggest that as users upgrade to the new version of Firefox, most are content to stick with Yahoo as the default browser versus switching back to Google. According to StatCounter, the boost in Yahoo’s search market share is exclusively from Firefox users.

“Some analysts expected Yahoo to fall in January as a result of Firefox users switching back to Google. In fact Yahoo has increased US search share by half a percentage point. It will be fascinating to see if these gains continue.”

Will Google be in reaction mode again now trying to get Firefox users to switch back? It will be interesting to see what reaction, if any, the search giant has to these numbers.

Internet Explorer 9 (Ie9) Beta Drops In September 2010

It looks like Microsoft is done with Platform Preview releases of the next major iteration of Internet Explorer. There’s now approximately a month until the first Beta development milestone of Internet Explorer 9 will be made available for download to the public. Microsoft has confirmed this officially, during the keynote at the annual Microsoft Financial Analyst Meeting. According to Microsoft Chief Operating Officer Kevin Turner’s announcement on July 29, come September 2010, users will be able to download and start test driving IE9 Beta. A specific availability deadline for IE9 Beta was not delivered. “The most beautiful thing about our browser story is the message is getting out with IE8, the safest most secure browser in the marketplace. We’re really excited about IE9 which will be beta and coming out in September. Yes, we had a little headwinds, we had several things we had to do with IE8 this past year but guess what per external data in the marketplace, in May and June, we grew share in the browser space for the first time in a very long time,” Turner said. (emphasis added) “So, the momentum on that has turned and it’s a whole new day. And where we’re going with IE9 and what we’re going to do from an HTML 5 standard standpoint and where we’re going from a speed standpoint, we’re really going in a big way in this space this next year and have a great story to tell including around safety and security in the browser space,” he added. Recently, leaked screenshots of IE9 Beta emerged in the wild. Although they looked completely fake to me, it seems that I might have been mistaken. A variety of sources are now confirming the validity of the screenshots and the IE9 leak. It seems that Microsoft has already shared the code of early pre-Beta Builds of Internet Explorer 9 with select testers and partners. The leaked IE9 screenshots do not contain a new UI for the browser but they do indicate that the successor of IE8 will feature a download manager. IE9 is Microsoft’s most standard compliant browser yet, having embraced HTML5, CSS3, DOM and SVG. At the same time the browser features a new JavaScript engine codename Chakra, which delivers performance almost on par with rivals Google Chrome and Opera, and superior to Firefox. One of the best aspects of IE’s evolution is hardware acceleration, with the browser leveraging the machine’s GPU in concert with DirectX 11 in Windows 7 and Windows Vista to deliver unmatched web experiences.

Lockheed Martin Wants To Send Humans To Mars In 12 Years

Before our species set foot on the moon, we orbited it first. The same will probably be true for Mars, and on Wednesday, Lockheed Martin plans to unveil its vision for a spacecraft that could make it happen. The “Mars Base Camp,” as the company is calling it, would set up a laboratory, staffed by 6 astronauts, in Mars orbit in 2028.

Up to now, NASA has outlined the first few steps to Mars. It’s building a heavy-lift rocket, the Space Launch System (SLS), and working with Lockheed to build the Orion crew capsule. The rocket and capsule will launch for the first time, uncrewed, in 2023, and then in 2023 they’ll carry astronauts into deep space, just beyond the moon, for the first time ever.

But after the moon it’s still a very long way to Mars, filled with unknowns, and then once you get to Mars, landing is a whole new challenge. This is where NASA’s plans get particularly vague.

“We think that orbiting Mars is a necessary precursor to landing humans on the surface,” Tony Antonelli, Lockheed Martin’s chief technologist for civil space exploration, and a former NASA astronaut, told Popular Science. “NASA has that in their plans, and we’re coloring in the details.”

Although NASA didn’t commission Lockheed to come up with the Base Camp concept, the company is hoping the space agency will consider the design as it continues to solidify plans to land on Mars in the 2030s or 40s.

Lockheed will formally announce the spacecraft concept tomorrow at the second day of the Humans to Mars conference.

Mission To Mars

You won’t find any suspended animation pods or magnetic shields on Lockheed’s spacecraft. As cool as those might be, Mars Base Camp relies on near-term technologies–equipment that’s already been proven or is in development now.

Orion provides the brain of the vessel, providing navigation and communications. There’s also a backup Orion vehicle to ensure a getaway plan if the crew runs into trouble.

The two Orion capsules would link up with larger habitat and laboratory modules, which Lockheed is already in the process of developing, as well as solar panels to provide power.

Lockheed Martin’s design for a deep space habitat, shown here, is one of several that NASA is considering for its missions to Mars. The Mars Base Camp concept incorporates the habitat design along with the Orion crew capsule that Lockheed is building and has already flown. Lockheed Martin

The spacecraft would launch on the SLS in pieces, to be assembled in space around the moon. Solar electric propulsion, which NASA is currently fine-tuning, would pre-deliver non-essential elements, such as rovers or UAVs, to Mars orbit or the surface.

Later, modules could be added to allow astronauts to land on Mars and later return to the Base Camp for the return trip to Earth.

What Can You Do In Orbit Around Mars?

Mars Base Camp could put astronauts into Martian orbit for about 10 or 11 months straight. While they’re there, the astronauts could remotely explore Mars’ moons, Phobos and Deimos, as well as operate rovers or Unmanned Aerial Vehicles in real-time.

It can take about 20 minutes for a signal to travel between Earth and Mars. That means scientists on Earth who are driving rovers on Mars have to do so somewhat blindly, plotting the rover on a course and letting it proceed without immediate visual feedback. Without the delay, and with real-time feedback, scientists can stop to look at features that they might have missed otherwise. Plus, the use of flying robots would allow NASA to explore Mars in a whole new way.


Concept drawing for a flying robot that could explore Mars. If NASA sends astronauts into orbit around Mars, they could remotely operate such robots in real time to find a safe landing place for the first Mars explorers.

The orbiting laboratory may help pinpoint a landing site for the first humans on Mars, and perhaps it will give scientists a chance to directly look for life on Mars: Lockheed suggests that soil samples from Mars could be launched up to the laboratory for a closer analysis than they could receive from a rover.

“We think that putting scientists with laboratories right there in Mars orbit will allow them, in just a few months, to accomplish more science than we’ve been able to accomplish in the past 40 years,” says Antonelli.

If NASA does decide to move forward with Lockheed’s Mars Base Camp idea, the company already has one astronaut who would gladly go into Mars orbit: Antonelli, who piloted two shuttle missions to the International Space Station in 2009 and 2010, says microgravity is addictive.

“When I was a child growing up thinking this would be a cool profession, this was the kind of mission that I thought about doing,” he says. “I thought, we’ve been able to send people to the moon, now the next generation–which I thought would be mine–was going to be on that journey to Mars.”

It’s been a long time coming, but Antonelli’s dream may finally be coming to fruition.

Upcoming Drops: September 26 – October 2

Let’s face it: The NFT space moves really fast. Considering how quickly things can change in the metaverse, a week in NFTs might as well be a month IRL.

Don’t get us wrong — the more people onboarded into the space, the merrier. But because of the constant influx of great art and ideas, it’s becoming increasingly difficult to keep up with all the news, launches, and general happenings.

Well, you can put the days of endless Twitter and Discord scrolling behind you, as we put together a weekly list of upcoming NFT drops you definitely don’t want to miss. Here’s what to look out for this week.
