China's Baidu announces a new mobile browser
Baidu says that the new mobile browser will support faster upload and download speeds and will allow users to run web-based applications. According to data from the China Internet Network Information Center, a government-authorized industry group, at the end of July 388 million Chinese went online via a mobile device. That is a 22% gain from last year and accounts for 70% of China's total internet users.
Baidu had a whopping 78.6% share of China's search market in the second quarter, far ahead of Google's 15.7% share in the period.
