Forrester: Internet Explorer Dominates The EnterpriseBut nothing to brag about.

Now here is a shocker for you: according to the recent report by Forrester, when it comes to enterprise, Internet Explorer still remains the number one web browser that IT workers choose.

How credible is it? Well, the survey itself is based on 7,295 IT workers, so the sample size is pretty decent. However, it’s not all rainbows and sunshine for once dominant IE, which holds 40.2% of the market share.
