Months and months after the continuous Internet Explorer’s market share decline, Microsoft’s web browser has finally breached the 50% mark and now sits at the 49.58%, down from 50.97% (1.39 point decrease).
Remember the great web browser war in the 90s? Internet Explorer vs. Netscape, the battle of two titans.
