If you have found that onclick event does not work on Google Chrome, Firefox and Safari web browsers, then here is quick way to fix it:
Replace onclick form id with its name
For example, let’s say you have the following:
Find JS event:
All set. It now works with all web browsers.
It’s the 1st of March already, so let’s dive into February market share data.
With the release of Internet Explorer 9 RC, Microsoft has taken some share back, up from 56.00% to 56.77% (0.77 point increase).
While everyone awaits the final version of Firefox 4, an open source web browser continues the downtrend, from 22.75% to 21.74% (1.01 point decrease).
Google Chrome does not seem to be stopping anytime soon as we see a yet another increase, up from 10.70% to 10.93% (0.23 point increase).
Things look good in the Safari camp as well, this time its market share has increased by 0.06 point, up from 6.30% to 6.36%.
After some recover, Opera has lost 0.13 point of the market share in February, down from 2.15% to 2.28%.
One of the oldest -- yet somehow least-lauded projects in existence -- is Mycroft. Perhaps its under-hypedness is due to its total simplicity -- Mycroft is nothing more than a massive directory of search plug-ins that you can add to Firefox, Chrome and Internet Explorer. Check the top 100, and you'll get some idea of Mycroft's scale.
For Firefox and Internet Explorer, this means you can search just about every site in existence from the Search bar in the top right corner of your browser. For Chrome users, this means you get even more functionality from the uber Omnibar.
Incidentally, Chrome users, did you know that you could use specific search engines from the Omnibar? When you grab a search plug-in, make sure you provide a keyword. Make it something short -- like 'pb' for Pirate Bay or 'imdb' for IMDb -- and then, when you want to search The Pirate bay, just type pb, followed by your search term.
With a great year for web browsers that 2010 was, it’s time to dive in directly into 2011 and check the very first month market share stats.
Internet Explorer continues the downtrend with a 1.08 point drop, from 57.08% to 56.00%.
With the upcoming Firefox 4 release, Mozilla’s web browser is still struggling to gain any significant market share, this time it lost a 0.06 point, down from 22.81% to 22.75%.
As stated in the title, Google Chrome has now more than 10% of the market share, up from 9.98% to 10.70% (0.72 point increase).
Just as iPhone and iPad popularity grows, so does Safari’s market share, its market share has now increased by a 0.41 point, from 5.89% to 6.30%.
With the release of Opera 11 Final, Norwegian web browser gained 0.05 point of the market share and went up from 2.23% to 2.28%.
The HTML5 web video wars are heating up again, this time with the news that Google has announced to remove support for the h.264 codec from the Chrome browser in the next couple months. Google product manager Mike Jazayeri admits that ” H.264 plays an important role in video” but that Google has decided to direct their resources exclusively “towards completely open codec technologies”.
What does it mean for Chrome users? Chrome will eventually only support HTML5 web videos that are making use of Google’s own WebM (VP8) codec or Theora video codecs, and will refuse to play H.264 videos if the website in question streams video in that format only. While that’s not the case for Youtube and maybe a few other sites, the majority of Internet sites will not encode their videos multiple times to make sure they can be watched in all browsers.
Lets take a look at browsers and their HTML5 video support:
- Google Chrome WebM8, Theora
- Firefox, WebM8, Theora
- Opera, WebM8, Theora
- Internet Explorer 9, H.264
- Safari, H.264
Google Chrome until now was the only browser that supported all video codecs. Internet users now have the problem that their favorite browser may not be able to play videos that they want to watch on the Internet, which means that they need to keep a second browser installed, or download the videos to the computer to watch them locally.
H.264 is the Blu-Ray codec and Apple makes use of it as well in their products. If you look at entertainment devices you notice that the majority plays H.264 but not WebM or Theora.
The majority of commenters at the official blog announcement over at the Chromium blog appear to disagree with Google on the move. Some thing Google tries to push their own codec at the expense of the Chrome user experience, others state that the WebM8 codec is inferior to h.264 in quality.
What’s your take on this? And how will you handle HTML5 web video?
Earlier today, Clif wrote on how Chrome and Safari are stealing users from IE globally, however, here comes more bad news for Internet Explorer. According to stats released by website tracking firm Stat Counter, Firefox has overtaken Internet Explorer as the most used browser in European countries.
According to Stat Counter, Firefox now has 38.11% share in the European market as compared to IE’s 37.52%. However, here’s the catch. Firefox is not gaining users from Internet Explorer, instead Google Chrome is the one that is making dents into their market share. According to the Stat Counter CEO, Firefox has more or less been stable, whereas IE has been the one losing market share.
Google Chrome has about 14.8% market share as compared to 5.06% in December last year. That itself is a huge gain. Firefox on the other hand have lost market share since last year.
In addition to Google Chrome, this feat can also be credited to the new browser ballot system for browsers that was enforced on all new Windows PCs by law of the European Union.
However, IE is still one of the top browsers in North America, but that crown could soon be placed on top of Firefox’s head too. Google Chrome is by far one of the best browsers available today. However, with Firefox 4 around the corner and the new Opera 11 browser it will be very hard for Internet Explorer to overcome the competition.
My prediction is that Google Chrome will own around 25-35% market share by end of 2011 and Opera should end up with 5-7% while Firefox remains stable or sheds some more users.
Proving the Old World can still be positively refreshing when it comes to some things, the unstoppable decline of Internet Explorer in the motherland has finally left Firefox with the European pole position.
Internet Explorer, across all versions, lost about 8% of its market share between December 2009 and 2010. Firefox, on the other hand, by losing just 3% of its share, has ended up on top. The biggest winner, and seemingly the only browser to gain market share, is Google's fleet-footed Chrome browser, which began the year at 5% and ended at almost 15%.
In the rest of the world, Internet Explorer is still by far and away the most popular browser (at least according to StatCounter). In fact, the only other territory where Firefox is in the lead is Antarctica...
All right, it’s time to check the browsers market share stats for the last month of 2011 that is December.
Internet Explorer continues to fall and is now approaching 50% level, dropping from 58.44% to 57.08% (1.36 point decrease).
Firefox the first time in 3 months, Firefox has increased its market share by 0.05 point, from 22.76% to 22.81%.
Google Chrome is dangerously close to 10% level, up from 9.26% to 9.98% (0.72 point increase).
Safari got a nice chunk of market share this time, moving up from 5.55% to 5.89% (0.36 point increase).
Just like Firefox, Opera has also seen some gains for the first time in 3 months, up from 2.20% to 2.23% (0.03 point increase).
The world's most graceful and simple solution for pushing links to your smartphone has just emerged. It's called Site to Phone, and it works for every major Web browser. Theoretically, it works for every smartphone OS, too; iOS, webOS, Android, Windows Phone 7, BlackBerry -- and maybe even Symbian.
If you don't want to use a bookmarklet, you can just visit the Site to Phone website and paste a link in -- once you save it, the link is immediately active on your phone. There is also a Chrome extension or Internet Explorer add-on, if you prefer.
It's hard to describe just how well it works; it's best if you just give it a go yourself. You don't even have to register: just visit Site to Phone, begin the process, and then type a unique URL into your phone. So, so easy.
All right, it’s the last month of 2010 and a good time to check the browser market share numbers from the previous month. Let’s begin, shall we?
While Microsoft is working on a new version of web browser, Internet Explorer continues to lose its market share, going down from 59.18% to 58.44% (0.74 point decrease).
With no Firefox 4 Final release this year, Mozilla’s browser continues the downtrend, spiking down from 22.83% to 22.76% (0.07 point decrease).
With Google Chrome increasing its market share by a 0.76 point (from 8.50% to 9.26%), it is highly likely that we will see a 10% share by the end of this year.
Slowly but surely Safari is growing as well, up from 5.36% to 5.55% (0.19 point increase),
Just like Firefox, Opera’s market share has decreased by a tiny bit, from 2.29% to 2.20% (0.09 point decrease).
So here you have it, no significant market share trend changes as we await major browser revisions in early 2011.
Earlier this year, in June, I ran the first of my side-by-side deathmatches to try and work out which, if any, of the browsers is truly the hardware accelerated king. As it turned out, Firefox 4 and Internet Explorer 9 were pretty equally balanced. Just two months later, in August, Chrome had stolen the top spot and sent Firefox 4, in a fit of tears, to the bottom of the heap.
Or so it seems.
According to the “Dirty Dozen” applications list (which is basically a collection/report of the most discovered software flaws that require security updates), when it comes to vulnerabilities, Google Chrome is the no. 1 application to get.
Furthermore, same report claims that Internet Explorer has far less security flaws than Safari or Firefox web browsers.
Good news for Opera users, as this browser had the lowest number of discovered vulnerabilities.
Statistics (application, number of security flaws found)
As we enter November, it’s time to yet again, check the browser market share numbers.
It looks like Internet Explorer 9 Beta release did not help at all, as IE market share went down from 59.65% to 59.18% (0.47 point decrease).
Firefox market share is also on the chopping block. It has decreased by 0.1 point, going down from 22.96% to 22.86%. That’s the lowest number this year.
Google Chrome on the other hand is doing really well, this time its market share went up by a massive 0.52 point, from 7.98% to 8.50%.
With the increasing popularity of Apple devices, Safari share is on the rise as well, up from 5.27% to 5.36% (0.09 point increase).
Opera browser struggled to increase the market share, as it reached June, 2010 levels, down from 2.39% to 2.29% (0.1 point decrease).
Today, we test five most popular web browsers to find out, who leads and who lags in the HTML5 Benchmark.
Internet Explorer 8
Internet Explorer 9
Google Chrome 7
Google Chrome 8
Higher is better. Maximum score: 377 points.
Internet Explorer 8 – 32
Internet Explorer 9 Beta – 80
Firefox 3.6.10 – 145
Firefox 4 Beta 6 – 235
Google Chrome 7.0.517.41 – 248
Google Chrome 8.0.552.11 Beta – 262
Opera 11 Alpha – 223
Opera 10.63 – 203
Safari 5.0.2 – 178
WebKit r70433 – 196
As per our test, Google Chrome 8 takes the lead, followed by Google Chrome 7 and Firefox 4 Beta 6.
Unfortunately for Internet Explorer 9 and 8, they are in the bottom, followed by Firefox 3.6 and Safari 5.
