Microsoft Will Never Have Google’s Market Share
…unless they stop doing this kind of krap:
Google has 70% market share, and if Microsoft wants to reach that, alienating 23% of the world’s users isn’t a good way to start.
It astounds me how Microsoft continues to think inside the box. The entire company from the ground up seems to be totally oblivious that they don’t have 100% browser market share. I have worked with several ex MS guys, and although a small sample size, I always get the impression that it’s not malice that makes them force people to use IE for certain services, just complete ignorance of the world outside of MS.
That’s a great thing for Microsoft, because they have the kind of employees that live and love their own products, but sometimes I wonder if anyone there reallizes the rest of the world exists. Microsofts new SearchPerks program allows you to earn rewards points while you search and redeem them for prizes is yet another example — only if you are using IE.3 Comments
