OneStat's statistics, based on the Web surfers' activity in 100 countries, showed that IE's market share slipped to 88.9 percent in the third week of November, down 5 percentage points from its share in May.

Mozilla-based browsers, including Firefox, rose to 7.4 percent, up 5 percentage points from May.

The new figures come on the heels of another survey that showed IE on a downward trend. Earlier this month, WebSideStory reported that IE was continuing to slip, claiming 92.9 percent of Web surfers in October versus 95.5 percent in June


IE is going downwards, and pretty fast too - 5 percentage points in half a year seem quite a bit :D

"I still believe in the end that most users will decide that IE is the best choice when they take into account all the factors that led them to choose IE in the first place," Schare said

"...all the factors that led them to choose IE..." that ***hole, no one "chooses" IE. Using it is to not choose...

doesnt surprise me, i've switched every PC user I know to Firefox... and with all the media surrounding Firefox, Im sure a lot of people are curious as to all the hubbubb behind it, so they test it out.... and IE's market share going down is a sure sign that a lot of people are really choosing Firefox... and sticking with it

Now if we could just flush the rest of the M$ crap, we'd be in good shape.
