Net Applications today released their latest worldwide browser market share stats for the month of August. Internet Explorer market share is now at 58.24%. Among the Internet Explorer versions, IE11 showed a modest growth by increasing to 17.45% from 16.78%. Internet Explorer 8 remains the most popular browser in the market with about 21.4% market share. Developer’s nightmare IE6 is continuing to lose market share and expect the number to go down in the coming months as Microsoft has ended the support for Windows XP in which it was the default browser.
Among other browsers, Google Chrome gained little to grab 19.98% of the browser market while Firefox lost few percentage to now hold 15.16% of the market.
