Windows 7: Worrldwide Browser Share:June 2010.

03 Jul 2010   #1

Win 7 Ultimate 64-bit. SP1.
Worrldwide Browser Share:June 2010.


Data source: Net Applications

Another month into 2010, and most of the browser trends we've noted over the past several months are continuing: Firefox and Opera remain static, Safari is slowly creeping ahead, and Chrome roars forward at breakneck speeds. But Internet Explorer has reversed itself—and gained market share.
Between May and June, Internet Explorer gained 0.57 percentage points (from 59.75 percent to 60.32 percent). Usually, it's IE losing the most ground.

Data source: Net Applications

We've seen IE drop more than one percentage point on multiple occasions, but even though IE's gain is substantial, it's not unheard of to see IE gain share once in a while. Months like this don't usually happen twice in a row, and until we see data for July we can't say that IE's long decline has started to reverse itself.

It may be grinding to a halt, though, given that May's loss was Microsoft's smallest decline in the last year (and IE actually saw positive growth in the US) and now IE is back above 60 percent.

Microsoft noted that the increase may be the result of a marketing campaign that it launched earlier this month to underline how IE8 helps stop online criminals from stealing your information. Since launch, Redmond has had many campaigns to promote IE8's various features, especially the security ones, and while version 8 is the fastest growing browser, its success has not been enough to counter the overall decline of IE thus far.

Interesting that Opera is the biggest loser. Probably all that whining they did regarding ballot screen.

@John: Im using Chrome dev atm.

Yep, I stopped using Opera when they wanted the ballot screen. That really made me mad. I used to be a huge Opera user but if they are going to cry about everything I don't want anything to do with them. Now I have IE and FireFox.
