Firefox market share in peril

Mozilla’s Firefox has lost market share against Google’s young pretender Chrome browser for the third month in a row.

According to NetMarketShare’s latest stats, Firefox's share of the global browser market slipped under 23 per cent in July.

Meanwhile, Microsoft’s Internet Explorer saw its usage share rise a slender 0.42 per cent last month. It’s up about one per cent since May, the stats firm noted.

“This is the second month in a row of global gains for Internet Explorer and the third straight month of gains for Internet Explorer 8 in the United States. The gain comes at the expense of Firefox (-.9%) and Chrome (-.08%),” said NetMarketShare.

As I wrote in this thread:
[webmasterworld.com...]

I think it's worth noting that not all stats websites are the same. For example, StatsCounter still shows significant growth for Chrome and a decline for IE in the month of July:
[gs.statcounter.com...]
Those stats seem much more realistic to me than the ones from netmarketshare.com. If you compare by browser version, IE8 continued to have growth, but overall IE lost market share.
