New month brings new data, let’s take a look.

Microsoft’s Internet Explorer continues to do well, it has since surpassed the 56% mark, up from 55.98% to 56.15% (0.17 point increase).

Just like in the last 12 months, Firefox is stuck at the 20% mark, down from 20.63% to 19.15% (1.48 point increase).

Breaking its long downtrend, Google Chrome is up by 1.43 points, from 15.74% to 17.17%.

Apple’s Safari too saw an increase in its numbers, up from 5.46% to 5.55% (0.09 point increase).

Opera on the other hand took a pretty significant downturn as its market share has decreased by 0.19 point, from 1.77% to 1.58%.

That’s all for now, folks.

      It’s going down baby, they’re going down like a dodo. Serves them right for copying Chrome and removing customization and shit.

        The same could be said now about the new Opera. :(

          Of course, works the same for everyone. If you build your reputation on being customizable, and suddenly stop being so, you’ll fall.

          The same principle applies for any quality.

          I can only imagine what would happen if Chrome would suddenly stop being a bloated, ineffective pile of mainstream crap. Their market share would drop bellow zero, most def!

    Leaving FF in favor of IE is like leaving USA in order to live in Pakistan!

    I don’t believe this statistics, just see how cheesy it is

      Browser marketshare has never been a reliable statistic.

    This is a big slap in the face for O15. And, frankly, they deserve it.
