From the article:
For quite a long while, C++ had been losing popularity; for example, as reported in [Widman16], in 2016 it got 7% less of the listings on Dice.com compared with a year earlier; and according to [TIOBE17], from the C++ Golden Age in 2004 till 2017, the C++ share fell from ~17% to a measly 6%.
As all of us (as in, ‘hardcore C++ fans’) know , this has nothing to do with the deficiencies of C++; rather it is related to an observation that the time of downloadable clients (which was one of the main C++ strongholds) has changed into the time of browser-based clients – and all the attempts to get C++ onto browsers were sooo ugly (ActiveX, anyone?) that this didn’t really leave a chance to use C++ there.
