    It's based on Google Trends. Would be hard to negate all the years the competition has been in existence.

    Ignoring the trends will leave you stranded. If you check the graph, you will see that all have converged, which means you have a more balanced competition now, which in the end will benefit the consumers. If you check the source data, you will also see the data for IPB are very skewed, cause that acronym is used for other things as well (for example, most of the hits from Turkey would be related to something else).

    This is only based on search volumes from Google, which might be very indicative due to their dominant position, but a security hole in one of the packages can cause a peak in search volum, so again, it does not reflect actual popularity.
