Alexandria, VA (PRWEB) April 11, 2014
Chrome extension development will soon be the focus of many a developer’s time and effort according to new research by BestToolBars. It has issued a statement today urging developers to focus their extension development efforts on the Chrome browser. This thinking is at odds with the accepted industry standard which has traditionally favored add-ons and extensions for Internet Explorer.
Valery Kuznetsov, Key Projects Manager at Besttoolbars said, “While Internet Explorer has been the most highly prized of the browsers in recent years, we are confident that the search landscape has changed sufficiently that developers now need to adjust their thinking. In February of this year, Chrome was confirmed as having the largest market share of the big four browsers.”
In its statement, BestToolBars recognizes that until a few years ago, Internet Explorer commanded 80% of the browser market, meaning most plug ins could be content with only supporting this one browser and remain confident that the majority of the audience would be catered for. Now however, other browsers such as Chrome, Safari and Firefox have all gained ground on Internet Explorer, with many commanding a similar market share. BestToolBars recognizes that in a perfect world, plug ins should be launched across the four main browsers however, it is now advising those with limited budgets to focus entirely on Chrome extension development.
Valery Kuznetsov added, “If you are not ready to invest money in supporting the four main browsers, you should start with Chrome as this browser has the largest market share. This will give you the largest audience boost compared to development for any other browser.”
