   chrome-vs-firefox

It’s returning! Mozilla is going to release new browser of Firefox 57 to fight back Google’s Chrome browser! The battle will begin in November after the launch of Firefox 57.

About five years ago, people wanted a speedier, extensible, more privacy-oriented web browser on their desktops often immediately downloaded Mozilla’s Firefox to use instead of Internet Explorer on Windows or Safari on the Mac.

But those days seem gone. Firefox is hardly discussed today, and its usage has cratered from a high of over 30 percent of the desktop browser market in 2010 to about 12 percent today, according to Mozilla, citing stats from NetMarketShare. And Firefox’s share on mobile devices is even worse, at less than 1 percent, according to the same firm. People keep asking is Mozilla Firefox died from the public. Though the usage of IE browser is go down, Mac has Safari, but the fighting days between Chrome, Opera and Firefox (latest tutorials) seem long ago.

Can Mozilla save Firefox

On January, Walt’s column focuses on Mozilla Firefox, which is now refocusing on its desktop platform. On our beloved podcast Ctrl-Walt-Delete, Walt and Nilay go deep into the history of Mozilla’s browser, what tabs they currently have open, and the future projects that are still loading.

“In many ways, we went through a time that you don’t get to survive,” says Mark Mayo, senior vice president for Firefox and a member of Mozilla’s decision-making steering committee. “Somehow we’re not dead… and it feels like we’re picking up speed and figuring out what to do.”

On June, Firefox finally unveils its faster, more memory-efficient browser, Version 54 is the first to use “multiple process” tech that has been available for a while now on Chrome, Safari, Edge and other browsers. Now, Firefox is running heavy, complex websites will influence other tabs less, making the web run better overall on Windows, Mac and mobile devices. Can version 54 of Mozilla Firefox browser sane Firefox?

“With today’s release, Firefox uses up to four processes to run web page content across all open tabs,” Firefox VP Nick Nguyen wrote. “By separating the tabs into separate processes, we make better use of the hardware on your computer, so Firefox can deliver you more of the web … with less waiting.”

The fight is coming closer between famed browsers in November, just wait and see.

LivingSocial, the second largest American group purchasing website, comes to death ends and plans to sell itself to Groupon after several job cuttings.

Groupon is known to all, while many of us learn little about LivingSocial. LivingSocial has raised funds of about $ 930 million so far. Its value of assessment once reached $ 6 billion. LivingSocial and Groupon once obtained over 80% of American market share together in this field.

LivingSocial did not reveal the acquisition amount yet. After all, it is not a good news to sell itself to rival.

The original of LivingSocial was called Hungry Machine. It was established by 4 co-founders in 2007, they are Aaron Batalion, Tim O’Shaughnessy, Eddie Frederick and Val Aleksenko. It specialized in launching apps associated with Facebook application, such as voting app. Then it turned its business to promote sales emails to clients for merchants. They renamed Hungry Machine as LivingSocial in 2009.

LivingSocial started the massive expansion when it began to do group purchase business. It spent a lot of money for tv advertisement to enhance its popularity and acquired startups in many countries to quick up the expansion in new markets. It added many new products category for group purchase such as traveling and food delivery to strengthen competitiveness.

What LivingSocial did was to obtain more users and expand market. Though LivingSocial competed hard with Groupon for financing and expansion, it was still beated by Groupon.

LivingSocial once made deal with Amazon to power its competitiveness. Amazon invested $ 175 million on LivingSocial to hold 31% of its share.

In 2012, the value of assessment for LivingSocial reached $ 6 billion. However, its value of assessment declined under $ 1.5 billion one year later.

Though Amazon invested it, it faced pressure to make profit. The revenue of LivingSocial in 2012 was $ 387 million, however, the total loss was $ 767 million. Its performance turned better in 2013, with revenue of $ 384 million and loss of $ 110 million.

The orders will be delivered on the same day after they make orders in the urban areas, while it will take two or three days to deliver goods to countryside areas.

This service make threats to Amazon Prime Now. Prime Now can deliver goods for clients on the same day in most urban cities. Both of its urban and suburban users can enjoy the overnight delivery service for millions of orders with Prime subscribers.

Google Express also offers same-day delivery and overnight delivery services. Its users can pay $95 subscription fee to enjoy a whole year free delivery service or pay $4.99 freight for each order. Some goods have minimum consumption limitation to enjoy its delivery.

Google Express stopped selling fresh fruit, vegetables and milk and converted to grocery selling and distribution business. It meant that Google won’t compete with AmazonFresh, Instacart and Peapod.

HPE has been splitting  some unwanted business sections in past months. For example, it sold the controlling interest of Mphasis for $825 million in April. Its IT service was split off in May and integrated to Computer Sciences as a new associated enterprise.

It was rumored in July that HPE would sell a software department of Autonomy to private equity. It even rumored some private equities would acquire the whole HPE.

As far as it concerned, HPE seemed to promote its data analysis business and super computer system by acquiring SGI. Antonio Neri claimed:”SGI has innovative technology and service, inducing the first-class huge data analysis and high performance computing solution. It offers the supplements of mature data center solutions.”

SGI was established in 1981 and named Silicon Graphics, Inc.. In the past years, lots of SGI former employees sought jobs in other large-scale technology companies, such as Intel, NIVIDA and Cray.

SGI has facing pressure from Sun Microsystems. It applied bankruptcy protection in 2009 and sold its business to Rackable Systems. Rackable Systems then integrated SGI technology to its product lines and renamed it as “SGI”.

HPE has great interest in in-memory super computer of SGI. Such UV super computer must be applied with IMDB. IMDB increases data processing speed which is suitable for data analysis. May SGI brings new breakthroughs for HPE business.
