Amazing that Microsoft survived the US DOJ over the MSIE vs Netscape then years later just lets their ill gotten gains fall into the hands of Chrome with hardly a fight.
Microsoft at one point simply had the superior product, it didn't crash as much, displayed pages faster and was at the top of their game and slowly but surely started giving up market share to Firefox and then Chrome as they seem to have lost their way.
Not only that, MSIE quickly got the reputation for being the least secure option, while Chrome is deemed the most secure, which is why the corporations still standardizing on MSIE is a bit mind boggling.
I'm starting to wonder if we'd even notice if Microsoft suddenly vanished from the desktop landscape altogether as we could switch to Ubuntu, Open Office and Chrome/GMail or Firefox/Thunderbird and just keep doing business as normal without dropping a stitch.
Curious, is Android's browser counted in the total for Chrome?
That would easily explain the weekend surge.
