NetFront now stands as the most widely deployed and actively used browser in the beyond-PC market, supporting more OS platforms and devices than any competing browser in the market.
Access is a mobile Internet pioneer, having helped to define and develop the Compact HTML protocol for NTT DoCoMo's wildly successful i-mode service. NetFront enjoys over 80% market share of the i-mode browser market and a full 100% market share of NTT DoCoMo's 3G FOMA service, the first 3G service launched anywhere in the world.
NetFront technology has been deployed in Internet solutions from many of the world's leading technology companies including Adobe, Alpine, AT&T Wireless, China Mobile, China Unicom, Handspring, Hutchinson 3G Group, IBM, KDDI, NEC, NTT DoCoMo, PalmSource, Samsung, Sharp, Sony and more.
ACCESS CEO and President, Toru Arakawa stated, "I'm excited to see NetFront reach 100 Million worldwide deployments. From the very beginning, our goal has been to develop Internet technologies that enable access from any device and location. This deployment milestone is a clear validation that our efforts are succeeding."
