November, 2014 Desktop Market Share: Google Chrome – Up; Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari, Opera – Down
After a small blip last time, Microsoft’s Internet Explorer has lost some of its market share since, down from 58.36% to 57.91% (0.45 point decrease).
If you are a web developer, listen up as Microsoft is currently looking for the feedback on their new Internet Explorer Developer Tools.
So far, the team has come up with three different layout ideas and this is where your comments and suggestions come into the picture.
Take a look:
And other neat features.
If you‘ve already downloaded today‘s Windows 10 Technical Preview (Build 9879) then you should note the recent additions to the Internet Explorer 11, which will likely be rebranded to IE12 in the coming months.
So what has changed? First and most important: Edge (must be enabled separately), a new document mode, where the software giant has worked hard to introduce an interoperable UA string and avoid the IE-only content.
October, 2014 Desktop Market Share: Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Safari – Up; Firefox, Opera – Down
Starting with the Internet Explorer, it looks like Microsoft’s web browser is in the consolidation range, now up by 0.12 point, from 58.37% to 58.49%.
Another month, another report.
Kicking things off with Apple’s Safari, its market share grew by 0.41 point, from 44.63% to 45.04%.
And it’s pretty useless.
Recently, Microsoft has announced a new and free tool that aims to help web developers to test their code on Internet Explorer, especially those running Mac OS X, iOS or Android.
While it might sound cool on the first sight, there is one problem: it allows you to test the latest version of Internet Explorer on the Windows 10 Technical Preview, which means that pretty much no one is using this browser right now and it’s useless since developers need access to older builds like IE8 and IE9.
Now with improved New Tab page.
If you are rocking the latest build of Windows 8.1 then behold as there is a new feature that was just added: a Bing search bar in the new tab page, just above the pinned sites.
The bad news? In case you installed Windows 10 Developer Preview, you won’t get the update, at least for now.

No Internet Explorer 12 in sight.
With today’s release of Windows 10 Technical Preview, Microsoft has also detailed a list of new Internet Explorer 11 features that made it to the build.
So what should you be excited about?
- A support for HTTP/2 networking protocol, which means better performance
- Interoperable Top Level Domain Parsing
