Worldwide browser markershare april 2014

Net Applications today released their latest worldwide browser marker share for April. Internet Explorer market share is down 0.08%, from 57.96 percent to 57.88 percent. Among the Internet Explorer versions, IE11 showed a strong growth by increasing by 0.9% from 15.71 percent to 16.61 percent. Internet Explorer 8 remains the most popular browser in the market with about 20.85% market share. Developer’s nightmare IE6 is now at 3.73%, we 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 0.4% to grab 17.92% of the browser market while Firefox lost few percentage to now hold 17% of the market. Read more about it from the links below.

    I think there might be people who abandoned Firebox because they hired that CEO… and then others who abandoned Firefox because they fired the guy. So they got stung from both sides.

      L.O.L. Could be, though that would be a silly reason to leave Firefox, I’ve started using it as my tertiary browser since last month, it’s actually quite good, though Internet Explorer remains the best. :-) (note that I’m on Windows 8.1 – Updated).

    Internet Explorer is the best, and the new enterprize mode has made other browsers which only praise often was because they could support legacy applications, now Internet Explorer does it better than the rest, the next thing I hope to see is a web-app store to directly compete with Scroogle Chrome. :-D

      IE won’t be the best until they get a real Speed Dial extension instead of the pseudo Frequent crap it has now.

    Kicked IE to the curb years ago, a place it truly deserved to be and have loved Firefox ever since. However, after purchasing a Surface recently and running IE 11 on the beautiful W8.1 touch UI I’m totally hooked, this is one kick ass browser and I can never see me returning to FF.
    IE 11 with the touch UI is nothing short of WOW.
