The stats below from Net Applications shows Internet Explorer is losing more and more market share with just 66.7% of internet users choosing IE.
Firefox is steadily gaining, Safari remains in a nonthreatening third place, Chrome is happily carving out a small niche for itself, and poor Opera can’t seem to budge from fifth place. In August, all browsers except for IE and Safari showed positive growth.
Between August and July, Internet Explorer dropped a significant 0.71 percentage points (from 67.68 percent to 66.97 percent) and Firefox moved up a sizeable 0.51 percentage points (from 22.47 percent to 22.98 percent). Safari remained steady at 4.07 percent while Chrome once again moved further away from Opera: it gained a worthy 0.25 percentage points (from 2.59 percent to 2.84 percent). Opera budged 0.07 percentage points from 1.97 percent to 2.04 percent.
