Red Pandas Concerned About the Spread of Google Chrome
The Red Panda Coalition, an advocacy group for red pandas, has issued a press release indicating their concern over the growth of Google’s Chrome web browser. The browser now has, by some measures, over a third of the world’s market share and has been rising steadily since its introduction in 2008. Firefox, meanwhile, has seen its growth decelerate in recent years and has been stagnant or declining over the past 12 months. This has the RPC concerned.
“What many people don’t realize,” said RPC spokesperson Maria Cueto, “is that Firefox was a real shot in the arm for the red panda job market.”
According to the RPC, Firefox accounts for over 45% of all red panda employment over the past decade. ”If Firefox continues to lose market share, it could be devastating to red pandas,” said Cueto, who indicated that red panda unemployment has already started to creep back up above 10%.
