Its nearest rival, the ageing Internet Explorer, had a 12.03 per cent share with Firefox behind on 10.41 per cent.

Microsoft's newer browser Edge, which is bundled in with Windows 10, had just a 4.41 per cent slice of the browser market.

However, the tech giant have warned users ahead of the download's release.

The latest way Microsoft Office is used to infect your computer   

Criminal have found another way to (mis)use Microsoft Office and infect computers using the latest 'zero-day' hack.

You may know that Adobe's Flash was a popular add-in for web pages to display multi-media content.  But Flash was very insecure and unstable so it's been mostly replaced with other secure systems.  Most modern browsers block Flash content by default and you're rarely prompted to install Flash.

Guess which popular software still allows links to Flash content .... you guessed it, Microsoft Office.

The latest hack takes advantage of that security hole.  An infected Office document has a link to Flash content which is downloaded and run to gain access to the computer.

Steam SHOCK: Hackers could have taken control of YOUR PC thanks to this vulnerability   

Steam fans are being warned about a vulnerability that experts say has existed for 10 years.

Cyber security experts have put Steam users on alert about the remote code execution vulnerability.

Context Information Security said this backdoor affected all 15 million active Steam clients.

In a blog post online, the cyber security firm said the vulnerability allowed hackers to carry out remote code execution attacks.

Leveraging this, it was possible for hackers to control a victim's machine.

Writing online Tom Court, a senior researcher for Context, said: "This was a very simple bug, made relatively straightforward to exploit due to a lack of modern exploit protections."

He added: "The fact that such a simple bug with such serious consequences has existed in such a popular software platform for so many years may be surprising to find in 2018 and should serve as encouragement to all

No Kernel 5.0! Linus Torvalds Prefers Releasing it as Kernel 4.17   

Linus Torvalds has announced the release of Linux Kernel 4.17. Take a look at main new features in the latest kernel release.

A new Linux Kernel has been released today and unlike the expectations, it is not called Kernel 5.0.

On Linux's Kernel Mailing list webpage, Linus Torvalds describes why he didn't prefer to term this release as the Linux Kernel 5.0:

"No, I didn't call it 5.0, even though all the git object count numerology was in place for that. It will happen in the not _too_distant future, and I'm told all the release scripts on kernel.org are ready for it, but I didn't feel there was any real reason for it. I suspect that around 4.20 which is I run out of fingers and toes to keep track of minor releases, and thus start getting mightily confused I'll switch over. That was what happened for 4.0, after all."
