June, 2009 - Internet Explorer Loses; Firefox, Safari, Opera, Chrome GainsBy more than just a few requests, we are going to try something new this month, which is StatCounter instead of Net Applications. Let’s begin, shall we?

Internet Explorer continues its saga to the bottom, this time its market share fell by 1.46, from 62.09% to 60.6%

Firefox is likely to pass 30% mark this month. As for June, its market share increased by 0.93, from 28.75% to 29.68%

Opera continues its growth, this time it went up by 0.31, from 3.23% to 3.54%

With more advertising and more releases, Chrome increased its market share by 0.15, from 2.42% to 2.57%

      Indeed, it is, thanks.

    The ‘per browser version’ stats are more interesting if you’re going to use statscounter.

    Fun fact, IE6 is gaining in North America!

    thanks for using StatCounter… Finally! is seems to be too US-centric and probably biased by it’s strong ties to MS and Apple (who co-finance it).

    Hi Vygantas, I see you continually use “felt” as the Simple Past form of “to fall”, which is incorrect. “felt” is the Simple Past of “to feel”, which sounds weird in this context :o)
    You mean “fell” like “its market share fell by 1.46″.

    Cheers
