By | July 2, 2014 | 2 Comments



And now we do the desktop.

Starting with Internet Explorer, it looks like Microsoft’s web browser has finally regained what it has lost last year, up from 58.17% to 58.38 (0.21 point increase).

Next is Google Chrome, which is now as close to 20% mark as it has ever been, up from 17.73% to 19.34% (1.61 point increase).

Mozilla’s Firefox on the other hand continues to lose its market share, down by 1.27 point, from 16.81% to 15.54%.

After a small blip, Safari is down again, from 5.72% to 5.28% (0.44 point decrease).

Lastly, Opera, which is likely to reach the 1% mark soon, down from 1.16% to 1.05% (0.11 point decrease)

That’s all for now, folks.

    As an Opera 12 user I can tell you that yes indeed Opera will not only reach 1% but keep dropping until it is only included in the “other” collection.
    If you want to use a very simple browser that looks and behaves like Chrome, you use Chrome.
    You should include the O12 users as a separate statistic.

    It’s more capable than it used to be. It’s clear and uncluttered as users seem to like these days. What’s missing a compelling reason to use it over Chrome.
