The very famous web browsers like Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome are the most commonly used browsers after the Internet Explorer is almost outdated. The users of the browsers always need the best options in using the services, and also users always want new features that can make their usability much easier.
Google Chrome, the newer browser than Mozilla Firefox, has started proving its potentiality. Its market share on the basis of its user-popularity has started gaining more than Mozilla Firefox as per the statistics and reviews of the users that are releasing out.
There are many web browsers that have been used in this long span of internet. If we go through the flash-back in the history of the browsers, we can see many browsers that were highly popular and later on extincted because of many reasons.
The first widely used web browser was NCSA Mosaic. The Mosaic programming team then developed the first commercial web browser called Netscape Navigator, later renamed Communicator, then renamed back to just Netscape. The Netscape browser led in user share until Microsoft Internet Explorer took the lead in 1999 due to its distribution advantage.
A free open source software version of Netscape was then developed called Mozilla, which was the internal name for the old Netscape browser, and released in 2002. Mozilla has since gained in market share, particularly on non-Windows platforms, largely due to its open source foundation, and in 2004 was released in the quickly popular FireFox version.

The history of the web browsers is very interesting to study and understand the reasons of the evolving, extincting and innovating web browsers over the internet, the main reason for such changes being the demand and preferences of the browser users.
The question here is what do the people prefer now, Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome, despite of the review that are been published through various sources. If Firefox also does not evolve from time to time like internet explorer, it will be again difficult for it to survive and Google Chrome will gain the advantage of this fact.
The world is too competitive for words and so you never know when something new comes up kicking out the older ones if they are not capable enough to fight back with the more stronger streaks.
