comScore's U.S. search engine share for January 2016 is out, and it shows a fairly stable status for the major players, except that the number of searches is slightly up, and the search share reflected in that. Only AOL Inc shows a decline.
Google sites once again dominate at 63.8%, with Microsoft sites at 21.3%, Yahoo sites at 12.4%, unchanged since the previous month of December 2015.
Of course, these figures are desktop only, and it'd be interesting to compare mobile search share.
