Apple recently held one of its epic annual press events to show off a host of new products. To be fair, most of the products on show were merely updates of existing hardware, but inviting the world’s best technology journalists ensures the company positive coverage regardless.
We chose to cover the event a little differently, offering a hype-free guide to everything Apple threw at us. However, even without the hype, some of the new Apple products might just be worth getting excited about. And we want to know which one has your pulse racing.
Browsing On Your Mobile
To answer this week’s question please scroll down the page until you see the poll staring back at you. But first, we need to look at the results from last week, when we asked, “Which Mobile Browser Do You Currently Use?”
Out of a total of 1,170 votes, 45.2% chose Google Chrome, 12.3% chose Mozilla Firefox, 8.1% chose Apple Safari, 6.7% chose Internet Explorer, 5% chose Dolphin, 4.7% chose Opera, 4.2% chose Android Browser, 0.8% chose Puffin, 0.3% chose Amazon Silk, 12.2% chose Other, and 0.5% chose I Don’t Browse the Web on Mobile Devices!
This is a strong win for Chrome, with almost half of the people who voted choosing Google’s Web browser. There are no real surprises with the rest of the order either, with Firefox coming in second, and Safari coming in third. We suspect Opera would have done better had we remembered to include it from the start, which may also explain the high number of votes for “Other”.
Comment of the Week
We received a lot of great comments, including those from Kelsey Tidwell, Dmitriy Tverdov, and Murlidhar Rao. Comment of the Week goes to Peter Fitzsimmons, who earns our admiration and affection for this comment:
I’ve tried a few browsers over the years, including Opera, Dolphin and firefox but I always find myself going back to Google Chrome. I know it’s chunky and not the fastest but it works for me. It has all my bookmarks from my laptop/desktop in one handy place. I know how it works, due to using it for years and years… and on the very rare occasion I use my phone for web searches, Chrome is the one for me.
As good as phones and tablets are, using a browser on a “proper” machine like a laptop or desktop doesn’t compare. Maybe it’s because my eyes are failing in my old age.
We chose this comment because we suspect it addresses the question of why Chrome is so popular. Some people have issues with Chrome, regardless of what machine they’re using it on, but others see it as the default browser, especially on Android. And it does do its job, nine times out of 10.
All of these are likely to have left Apple fans with racing hearts and lust in their eyes. And left bank managers the world over sweating at the prospect of all that money being emptied from their clients’ accounts.
But we want to know which one in particular is the fan favorite, the people’s choice, the gold medal winner. And we need you to help us do so. Please vote in the poll below, telling us, “Which New Apple Product Has You Most Excited?”
Once you have voted in the poll above, please explain in the comments section below why you voted that way. Have you pre-ordered an iPhone 6s or iPhone 6s Plus? Is the iPad Pro the tablet you have been waiting for? Is the new Apple TV the perfect device for your living room?
The more information you can provide with your comment, the more accurate our conclusions can be based on the results. The best comment of the week will win our everlasting admiration and affection. At least until we all meet back here again this time next week with a new question.
