Browsers Battle Over Users

From his home in Newport on the west coast of Ireland, Julian Ellison often gazes out at the sea ringed by the mountains. He can use the Zen-like calm the place gives him. Last October, Mr. Ellison launched his Tablane browser with hopes of winning over users of Microsoft’s Internet Explorer and Mozilla’s Firefox.

The browser market has seen some of the bloodiest battles in technology. But Mr. Ellison is unworried. Tablane’s big deal is its online research sharing tool which comes bundled in, and Mr. Ellison is convinced it will be popular. “If you use the existing web browsers along with Google then it could take you about 15 to 20 minutes to really get a set of links for what you want,” he says. “We are offering a way for people who are constantly researching to pull together what they need from other people.” RED HERRING | Browsers Battle Over Users
