I looked up some of the latest Browser Market Share results on the net and saw some interesting results. The market share of Internet Explorer dropped from 67.68% to 66.97%. Thats a loss of 0.72% of its consumer base.
Firefox was at 22.47% in July has gone up to 22.98% which translates to a growth of 0.51% of its consumer base. Safari stayed stable at 4.71% for both months where as Chrome went from 2.59% in July upwards to 2.84% in August. This gives Chrome a growth of 0.25%.
The 123 of the Fight:
- The fight seems to be heating up now. Internet Explorer losing 0.72% and Firefox and Chrome combined gaining 0.76% seems like users are moving away from Internet Explorer quite fast.
- The Internet Explorer has also had a lot of negative publicity since early this year and hence has hits its user base.
- Chrome Browser seems to be gaining ground against Safari but Safari being stable both months at 4.71% it seems the even Chrome is gaining customers who are moving away from Internet Explorer.
- IE 8 is the latest version from Internet Explorer and it was released in March 2009. Not known further updates have been announced as yet.
- Mozilla Firefox 3.5 was released in July 2009. It has planned for a upgrade to Firefox 3.6 beta version by October and a final version by November.
- Google Chrome 2.0 .172.43 is the latest stable version that is out there. New updated version has still not been really announced.
