With few major browser releases just around the corner, let’s find out how market share has changed over the past month.
After surprising 2 months market share increase in a row, this time Internet Explorer lost 0.34 of it, down from 60.74% to 60.40%.
As Google Chrome 7 (dev) now includes hardware acceleration, guys from DownloadSquad decided to test it along with Internet Explorer 9 (developers preview) and Firefox 4 (beta).
