Bright! Xiaomi registers Apple's first browser trademark for advertising sales

In 1996, Apple released the first browser Cyberdog. Apple said that Cyberdog’s name is derived from a title in the New Yorker comic: “On the Internet, no one knows you are a dog.” But in 1997, Apple abandoned Cyberdog. After 24 years, another Chinese company picked up the name again.

According to the Qicha APP, Xiaomi Technology Co., Ltd. applied for the registration of the CYBERDOG trademark on January 29. The international classification includes 35 types of advertising sales and 9 types of scientific instruments. The current trademark status is in the process of registration. However, unlike Apple’s intention, the trademark registered by Xiaomi seems to be used for advertising sales or medical gardening, and the name of the trademark is all capital letters.

After giving up Cyberdog, Apple began to develop the Safari browser. This app was first released in beta in 2003 and has become the default browser for Mac OS X v10.3 and later, as well as the designated browser for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. As of December 3, 2012, Apple Safari still leads the global mobile browser market, with a share of 61.5%. In contrast, Google’s Chrome’s share of the entire mobile market is only 1.14%.
