Internet Explorer was once the only viable option when it came to browsing the internet. Since then many browsers have come and gone, but some have taken a large bite out of the IE market share. Firefox, Chrome, Safari, and Opera have been steadily stealing IE users for years, but IE has gained some users back in the last few months. Internet Explorer is still the most used browser worldwide, up to 60.74% from 60.32% last month, with Internet Explorer 8 the most popular. Firefox is the closest competitor with 22.91%, with Chrome rounding out the top 3 at 7.16%. I always find these studies surprising, as nearly everyone I know uses Firefox or Chrome.
