Written by Nick Farell

Can't claim more than half the web's traffic

Microsoft's Internet Explorer browser is no longer used for more than half the world's web traffic, according to a new survey fom Netmarketshare.com. Although it still claims 52.63 per cent of desktop traffic, the increasing amount of mobile traffic has killed pushed it below the 50 per cent threshold.

Mobile and tablets make up six per cent of web traffic. As of October, Firefox is the second most popular web browser, accounting for 21.20 per cent of traffic, followed by Google Chrome  16.60 per cent and Safari which has 8.72 per cent .

Chrome, which recently celebrated its third birthday, experienced the most expansion in October, increasing its share of the desktop market 1.42 per cent. Safari, the default browser in Apple's iPhone and iPad, continues to increase its dominance over the mobile web, gaining 6.58 per cent of the market.

The I.E. icon used for this article is out-of-date! That's the I.E.8 icon, the current I.E.9 icon is lighter blue!

indeed,
there's no difference between the latest versions of IE, FIREFOX etc,they all are copying each other,and if Chrome is 0.0001 % faster than others? Who cares?

I use IE8, IE9, Firefox and Chrome on a daily basis (web developer). All of them are fast, but Firefox seem to render pages faster. Chrome only wins in Javascript benchmarks which aren't very important for 99% of the pages normal people use. C'mon we have multicore processors running at 3+ GHz, who cares about 0.0001 s faster browser?

I also can't see much of a difference between current browsers, and use all of them; yes, IE too. IE 9 is a good browser and I don't see why someone wouldn't want to use it, well besides those who say they hate MS for some stupid reason.

Normal non geeky people would use whatever they get the first time, so if they have a fresh installation of windows then they'll most probably use IE.
