Here are some of the things the year 2012 brought us:
- 2012 gave us the chance to finally say goodbye to Internet Explorer 6. In an era of modern web standards, less than 6% of the world population are now using IE6 and less than 1% of people in the UK are using it. With the usage of IE6 massively decreasing, more and more websites are dropping support for IE6.
- We have seen the continuing rise of the use in mobile technology over desktops. The amount of people using mobile technology rather than desktop, in the UK, is now 16.52% – an increase of another 5% over the past year. This is a massive increase seeing as back in 2009 just 1.56% of the population were using mobile. According to estimates, by 2016 there will be 10 billion mobile internet devices used globally. The world population is expected to be 7.3 billion by 2016, so that’s 1.4 devices per person on the planet. The continuing rise has brought a massive increase in websites now using responsive design.
- 2012 saw Chrome overtake Internet Explorer. In January 2012, the most popular browser was Internet Explorer with 37.45% of people using it whilst Chrome was just 28.4%. However, as the year went on, Chrome overtook IE and by December 2012 had 36.42% usage whereas IE had just 30.78%*.
It’s now 2013 and we have big news! We are pleased to announce that Harry, a member of the Ziontech team, will be getting married this year!
We hope that you’ve all had a good Christmas and that the year 2013 brings you great success!
