You may have seen the video where Google asks more than 50 people in Times Square, New York, what a browser is. Most of them basically think a browser is a search engine!
It looks like the various browser vendors have a lot of work to do in order to create awareness around browsers!
Now someone has tried a similar poll in Russia. …
While they didn't interview as many as in the Google video, it's still quite interesting. I have been told that the most common response was "something to use the internet", which sounds a bit better than most of the responses in the New York video.
The last part of the video counts how many people use the different browsers, and as you can see, Opera is #1 with 8 "votes", Firefox with 6, Internet Explorer 5, Netscape and Safari 2, and Chrome 1.
