Internet Explorer Recent high-profile security problems with Internet Explorer have done little to dent its market share - or maybe not, according to conflicting reports on web browser use. Web analytics firm reckons that IE's global usage share is 85.85 per cent, an increase of 2.8 per cent since July 2006. Mozilla Firefox's open source browser claims second place with a share of 11.49 per cent, a decrease of 1.44 per cent since July 2006. Apple's Safari claimed 1.61 per cent (down 0.23 per cent), and Opera held 0.69 per cent of the market. However, statistics from websites tools firm Net Applications, cited by Ars Technica, paint a contrasting picture.

I find it difficult to believe that fewer people are using Firefox/Mozilla... Once people where I work started discovering Firefox (developers anyway), the immediately began switching over.

I think one factor that leads people to switch back to IE is the enormous amount of broken and uncompliant sites out there that only work properly on IE. My internet banking site is just like that.
