All right, it’s the last month of 2010 and a good time to check the browser market share numbers from the previous month. Let’s begin, shall we?
While Microsoft is working on a new version of web browser, Internet Explorer continues to lose its market share, going down from 59.18% to 58.44% (0.74 point decrease).
With no Firefox 4 Final release this year, Mozilla’s browser continues the downtrend, spiking down from 22.83% to 22.76% (0.07 point decrease).
With Google Chrome increasing its market share by a 0.76 point (from 8.50% to 9.26%), it is highly likely that we will see a 10% share by the end of this year.
Slowly but surely Safari is growing as well, up from 5.36% to 5.55% (0.19 point increase),
Just like Firefox, Opera’s market share has decreased by a tiny bit, from 2.29% to 2.20% (0.09 point decrease).
So here you have it, no significant market share trend changes as we await major browser revisions in early 2011.
Thanks to HitsLink for the graph.
