Microsoft’s Internet Explorer will lose its place as the majority browser next summer, according to statistics published by Web metrics company Net Applications.
That is, if the pace of IE’s decline over the last 12 months continues. This is about the same time Chrome will grab second place from Firefox, the stats show.
Microsoft, however, continues to stress the success of IE9, the edition launched last March, particularly on Windows 7.
On the newest rendition of Windows, IE9 accounts for 20.4% of all browsers globally, and 27.7% in the US, said Roger Capriotti, director of IE marketing.
That’s how we measure success in the IE business. – Capriotti, referring to Microsoft’s focus on IE9 and Windows 7
Nearly all of IE’s decline over the last year, and a much less dramatic dip by Mozilla’s Firefox, has gone to Chrome, said Net Applications.
