And the browser war goes on – the latest figures released by Net Applications and StatCounter suggested that Internet Explorer remains the world’s most used internet browser to browse the internet. However, the data also suggested that Internet Explorer usage is on a declining trend, whereby the market share has slumped from 45% to less than 40%.
Other interesting facts pulled out from the data unveiled that the Chrome browser is indeed enjoying better prospects over the years, whereby Chrome usage is on a steady increase and the browser is currently ranked second as the most commonly used browser. Firefox on the other hand, is tussling with the Chrome to hold on the second spot, whereby they narrowly missed the second and ended up right behind the Chrome at third. The data also suggested that both Safari and Opera market share have not increased over time. Personally, I’m guessing that Microsoft might just hold on to the browser war crown with their Internet Explorer 9 browser, which is widely distributed under the Windows 7 platform.
