|Microsoft's Internet Explorer losing browser share|
|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.
