Microsoft Browser Dominates the Web

You are most likely doing so with Internet Explorer #6, #7, #8 or #9.  Microsoft continues to be the most popular browser, according to an article in Mashable's blog.

According to Data from Net Applications, In the time between August and September, browser market share stayed pretty much the same. Chrome gained almost half a percent (.46%), Firefox saw just a .03% bump and Safari eked out an additional .11%.

Interestingly, Internet Explorer lost .75% share in the same interim, even amidst the release of its celebrated IE9 beta.

In looking at Net Applications data from September 2009 to September 2010, some clear patterns emerge. Internet Explorer is on a downward trajectory, softened by some stabilization in the past few months. In the same span of time, Firefox and Safari have stayed relatively stagnant. Chrome, on the other hand, continues to take incremental steps forward, passing Safari in the process and showing signs of continued growth.

But the measurement in change over time does seem to suggest that Chrome is carving out a nice foothold in the browser war. 7.98% does not a winner make, so it will be interesting to see how things play out over the course of the next few months.
