[news.bbc.co.uk...]

Microsoft's Internet Explorer (IE) web browser, now accounts for less than 60% of the market, down from 95% at its peak in 2003, according to new figures.

Latest statistics, from measurement firm NetApplications, show that IE has 59.9% of the market, with Firefox gaining on it, with 24.5%.

While third-place Google Chrome's 6.7% share of the market looks tiny by comparison it is rising sharply, up from just 1.7% this time last year.


With the spat of security issues being highlighted in the news and new users now getting a browser choice, Microsoft is fighting a hard battle.

The forced browser choice menu is only for the EU market. Elsewhere consumers will have to do things the old-fashioned way...download and install an alternative browser, if they so choose.
