Something to Think About

Xiaomi released it’s Mi4 flagship phone this week for $320-400. The news isn’t really about the Mi4 – although it’s a nice looking phone – it’s around how Android handset prices are continuing to see downward pressure. $300-400 is the new sweet spot for super phones. It’s eating into the profit margins of organizations like Samsung (draw parallels to Sony as you see fit), and making a whole lot of power even more accessible for Android users. We’re seeing continued interest in Chromebooks (more below), and Microsoft is working with partners to introduce lower-cost hardware into the same space.
Why we should care: We consistently see metrics that more than 2/3 of buyers will spend more than $150 on their phone. The downward push on prices for hardware that continues to grow in capability and performance means even more people will be able to take advantage of a full-featured web on (what is usually) their primary communications and computing platform. This pricing pressure is extending into the

Insights

Something to Think About

IBM and Apple signed an agreement earlier this week where IBM will re-sell and support Apple gear to and for their corporate customers. While many have identified this as a big win for Apple, it’s also a big win for IBM, whose products and services are used to manage the computing environments by and for their customers. The agreement is part of a segment that is heating up, with Microsoft also announcing lower-cost Windows 8 laptops to complement their Surface offerings, and keep pace with the changes Google is making to make Android and ChromeOS (and Google productivity services) a more attractive platform in the Enterprise environment.
Why we should care: Apple, Google, and Microsoft continue to invest in their cross-platform strategy, linking their core products to Enterprise – which include institutional users – with the aim of giving end-users access to what they need, when they need it, regardless of platform. Each org has different reasons for doing it, and are pursuing strategies that don’t (always) take advantage of the web as a platform.

Desktop

31 beta Survey is going out shortly.

We are watching reports that some Indian ISPs are causing youtube is misbehave in Firefox. Some users say this is happening outside of India, so we are still investigating.

Market Insights from the Market Strategy Team (Kev)

Something to Think About

Google continues to improve its l10n efforts, releasing 13 new languages for Gmail and raising the total to 71, covering 94% of the internet population. They continue to add locales to its Search UI as well as Search results language, and have announced improvements to localization support in Google Now (some of which have since been delayed) and other products.
Why we should care: Localization of our products has always been a strong point, but Google (and others) continue to close the gap and extend language support in all of its products, including Android, Play, and its core services. We should continue to focus on l10n support, and look at where we can continue to innovate/tailor our experiences from a regional standpoint.

Feedback Summary (Cheng/Tyler/Matt)

Desktop

  • We branched the usual Snippet survey to gauge sentiment with one of the following questions:

    • Very Unhappy … very happy (What we normally use)

    • One star … five stars
    • The classic Net Promoter score question (on a scale of 0-10, would you recommend …)
    • A slightly modified Net Promoter score question (on a scale of 0-10, would you choose to use Firefox the next time…)

Because we need more data for each question, we’ll be running the survey for a little longer than usual. Data next week.

  • Less than an hour ago, we launched a survey on the Account post-signup page to understand why people are using accounts. Data coming in 2 weeks.

Mobile

  • Rob Rayborn of User Advocacy found on input.mozilla.org a missing menu bug on Samsung tablets with hardware menu buttons & Aaron Train of QA reproduced it: bug 1030113

Market Insights from the Market Strategy Team (Kev)

Worth a Read

  • Google IO is this week, and starts on Wed Jun 25th. Many keynotes are streamed. Will be worth the watch, and the schedule is here.

  • Amazon finally launched its Fire phone, bolstering its connected device portfolio. It’s an AT&T exclusive, is about the same price as an iPhone, and has a one-click buy button. Not expected to sell large volumes, but continues to round out Amazon’s HW offerings, and Bezos talked about why they did it. They’re also offering incentives to developers for apps that take advantage of the Fire phone’s differentiating hardware and software.

Notes

  • Nokia/MS is launching an upgrade in its X line, including a $130 X2 which includes a larger screen, double the RAM, a 1.2Ghz dual core CPU, and Dual SIM capability, and even adds a capacitive home button.

  • Starting to see changes in Chromium that will likely be announced this week, including new UX elements in Chrome in line with Google’s Quantum Paper unified design initiative, some of which can already be seen in things like Google’s Web Starter Kit.
  • Yahoo! releases its Aviate home screen replacement app
  • Google Play revenue continues to grow, starts to shed stigma of having apps that people won’t pay for (although the Freemium model is driving revgen). Gaming is the big rev driver in the space

Feedback Summary (Cheng/Tyler/Matt)

Desktop

  • New tab broken by add-ons, still working on finding all the responsible ones and blocking but we did block an old version of Ask Toolbar which should help.

  • HP Simple Pass (fingerprint-scanning & password management) broke in 30 and is EoL so no update coming. There’s a company that should be making a replacement add-on that we’re reaching out to.
  • Crashing is up due to third-party things. Work is ongoing to address this.
  • We’ll be keeping an eye out now that we’ve pushed this update out to everyone.

Mobile

Questions, Comments, FYI

  • It looks like approximately 20% of requests for complete updates of 29.0.1 came from users who should have been using partial updates. Filed bug 1025048 to investigate.

  • The l10n dashboard now allows you to select sets of data that you might be interested in. https://blog.mozilla.org/axel/2014/06/17/create-your-own-dashboard/ talks about that.
  • Jeff Beatty and Axel Hecht are working on getting desktop lagging localizations to update on 31 and 32, piggy-backing on adding a bunch of them to Fennec. We also work with communities not being able to update to remove them from the web, and get users updates to supported builds. That’ll affect teams that can’t commit to a milestone at which they want to be caught up. It shouldn’t affect a lot of users, though.

Feedback Summary (Cheng/Tyler/Matt)

Desktop

  • Still a little too early for Firefox 30 data.

    • Crashes is still up relative to 28 — similar levels to last week, though. We saw a peak about 4 weeks ago and we’re down from that, but not back to normal.

    • We’re seeing some feedback on hang/slowness/freezing. It doesn’t look 30 specific. Still investigating.
    • No major spike in complaints around hang on exit so we’ve likely fixed that issue in the beta, go us!
  • Working on getting an understanding of how people use Firefox accounts.

Insights

News of the Week

Adobe’s marketing group released their take on browser trend numbers last week. Like a number of other orgs, they’ve stopped differentiating between desktop, mobile, and tablets, and just report on total share. They give the nod to Chrome over IE in the US, and we’ve seen similar reports elsewhere.
Why we should care: The new “browser war” reporting is cross-platform, with mobile contributing more and more to web browsing/access in general and being added to market share reporting. There’s a need to be aware in the gradual shift of market share reporting, and how more orgs are looking at browsers across platforms, rather than by hardware/operating platform.

A little-known company talked a bit about it’s plans around operating systems and cross-platform integration at it’s World Wide Developer conference. Lots of interesting bits around iOS 8 and Yosemite, including things like Continuity and mirroring voice and messaging between iOS and OS X, iOS app extensions, and expanded notifications.
Why we should care: Apple continues to bring some amazing features to its platform, and only to its platform. They’re taking good ideas from other platforms and improving on them as new features for the Apple ecosystem, while further locking their users in to their software, service and hardware ecosystem by taking away reasons to leave. Some great ideas, particularly around notifications/intents and picking up where you left off regardless of device.

Market Insights from the Market Strategy Team (Kev)

Desktop

News

Microsoft released its Surface Pro 3 last week, further refining the power tablet offering and receiving mostly positive reviews for pretty much everything except the keyboard.
Why we should care: Microsoft’s Surface product line continues to grow, and is generating around $1B/quarter in revenue in a market where tablet rev/sales are plateauing (and in some cases declining). The Surface Pro 3 is closer to a Windows laptop replacement than Android or iOS tablets, and adoption bears watching.

Google now requires extensions to be hosted on the Chrome Web Store to be installed. Google is framing this as protecting the user, and to help prevent third-party and/or submarine installs. Extensions not installed via the Web Store can/will be disabled until those extensions are hosted there.
Why we should care: Google’s continuing to ratchet down access to its product via addons (specifically plugins and extensions) and what they can change in-product. The changes are advocated as user experience wins, and gives Google more control and influence over how their product is affected by other software/interests, similar to other Google products/services.

Notes

  • Chrome 35 is out, which includes a number of security updates, improved dev tools, some ECMAScript 6 implementation, un-prefixed Shadow DOM and Web Audio API, and brings “Ok Google” and folders to ChromeOS. Interesting bit dev-side is the use of AddressSanitizer for bug detection.

  • Apple also released a security update for Safari, and encouraged administrators of OS X networks to update expediently.
  • Opera continues to acquire ad companies, continuing its focus on being a mobile ad platform that makes products that integrate nicely with it. This is old news, but still interesting in where Opera continues to invest.
  • Google acquired Divide, a company that develops BYOD policy software. Continued investment in Enterprise space alongside Chromebooks and Android, and may also supplement Chrome x-platform as a BYOD client choice.

Android

News

Google quietly Google has launched an updated mobile web version of the Play store, giving users the ability to use the web versus a native app. You can have a peek at https://play.google.com/store.
Why we should care: With the integration of Chrome in the launcher, this may be a way Google plans to better integrate Play content and hardware discovery and acquisition without the need of a dedicated app (and may also drive the underlying app itself).
