Net Applications And StatCounter Data Shows Internet Explorer Browser Usage Share Is Increasing

Internet Explorer September Market share

Microsoft’s Internet Explorer web browser is back on track both in terms of performance and usage market share. Starting from Internet Explorer 9, Microsoft begun focusing on speed and performance. In fact, Internet Explorer 11 is the fastest browser available according to the popular Sun Spider test. Analytics firm Net Applications reported that IE usage on PCs growing from 57.6 percent in August to 57.8 percent in September and it remains the most-used browser. According to StatCounter, IE is in second place with 28.6 percent, up from 25.6 percent last month.

According to both the results, Google Chrome turned out to be the browser which lost market share to IE. With the release of IE11 in Windows 8.1 and IE11 for Windows 7 devices, I think this upward trend for IE will continue.

      57.8% is for worldwide PC browser usage share which is what the author is discussing. The 28.6% usage share you refer to is for PC and tablet combined, a different statistic. But in either case IE usage has grown.

    Stop quoting Statcounter numbers!!! They are totally unreliable. They include browser prefetchs and what not. And according to them there are only 23 million Chinese users!

    This will only be accelerated with Windows 8.1 (Blue), ¿Does this include Internet Explorer Mobile, Google Chrome for Android and Google Chrome for iPhone?
