It’s the first report of 2015 so let’s get things going.

Starting with Internet Explorer, Microsoft’s web browsers starts 2015 with a decreased market share, down from 59.11% to 58.18% (0.93 point decrease).

Next is Google Chrome, which has achieved the highest number yet: 23.54%, up from 22.65% (0.89 point increase).

After a pretty big drop last time, Firefox is holding up, down by 0.01 point only this time, from 11.91% to 11.90%.

Apple’s Safari on the other hand is back above the 5% mark, up from 4.99% to 5.03% (0.04 point increase).

Lastly, Opera, which (surprisingly) is up for the second month in a row, up she goes from 0.94% to 0.96% (0.02 point increase).

That’s all for now, folks.

    Great to see Opera going up again. If only they don’t ruin it (there is no way to turn off autoupdate or using an older version). Apart from one bug, I’m very happy with Opera 27.
