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.

IE7 is the new cool browser

Now come on. A browser in which you can't even change the toolbars (order, moving, add/remove buttons, etc.), not even in rc2. A browser with absolutely no easy way to develop&add plugins. If nothing else, these are enough for many of us to not even care. And those "meagre enhancements" ? About thousandfold more than IE has seen in the last 4 years, _including_ IE7.
