Internet Explorer’s market share ‘falls below 90 per cent’
Dutch web analysis company OneStat.com is reporting that the market share of Internet Explorer has fallen below 90 per cent. The company says that the current metrics of the sites that it monitors show that IE is currently running at 88.9 per cent a drop of five percent since May
To no-one’s surprise, the big winner is Firefox. OneStat says that Firefox now accounts for 4.58 per cent of traffic with other browsers including versions of Mozilla making up the rest.. Mozilla now account for 7.4 per cent of browsers, up from 2.1 per cent in May.
The Onestat numbers are seen as a fair snapshot of the web as they analyse the traffic from some 50,000 web sites in 100 countries.
The spreadfirefox.com promotion site for the browser is now counting 5.6 million downloads of the 1.0 version.
