Internet Explorer Loses User Base

Even through Internet Explorer is still the most used internet browser and has been for some time, it is now losing its share. Net Applications has recently found that Firefox has just stepped over the twenty-one percent usage while Microsoft’s own browser has fallen below seventy percent. Even other browsers such as Chrome and Safari are experiencing gains, as the Apple browser went just over seven percent while Chrome went over one percent since it is out of beta. While users have been reporting instability with Internet Explorer 8 in Windows 7, it seems as if more users will continue to stray away from the long time browser and switch over to others that only sport more speed and compatibility, but more features.
